How to Build Minecraft House With 7 Best ideas

Minecraft House
Minecraft House

Minecraft is a game that let you construct things from simple cubes. The options are infinite, your creativity is the only restriction! So let’s get started and make your Minecraft world a more beautiful place. You should also try out the Shaders For Minecraft, if you want to make the Minecraft houses you will build look more realistic and life-like.

How to Build Minecraft House?

Most people are aware that Minecraft is about construction, but they are unaware of how difficult it is to build something in-game. New players may find it hard to construct something large or even tiny without prior knowledge of the concepts involved. That’s why I’m going to show you how everything works so you can build your Minecraft house on a strong foundation.

Collect material to build your Minecraft house:

Before making a Minecraft house layout you should begin with collecting stuff, there are the tools such as pickaxes, shovels, and axes, to name a few. You begin with a stone pickaxe and no items in your inventory. The first step is to acquire some wood, trees strewn around the terrain, as well as huge grass tufts coated with wood, are ideal places to start. You can find this material in Minecraft woods, forests, grasslands and other places.

Wood is your go-to building resource in Minecraft since it’s renewable, easy to come by, and simple to work with. To fall into a tree, you must stand near enough to the trunk and destroy one of the leaves/wooden blocks. After breaking one section, it will fall apart, and you may collect all of the fine wood into your inventory by right-clicking on the leaves/wooden block that was deposited into your inventory — simple!

Grow bread to increase your health:

The wooden shovel is the next item on the list, and it may be used to excavate dirt and grass blocks. It’s essentially a tiny axe with the ability to move the ground. Dirt may be used to plant wheat seeds into the ground and then grow bread if there is enough water nearby.

When waterfalls on the ground or is scooped from a water source using a bucket, it is immediately collected in the player’s inventory, so check your inventory while watering your wheat fields. If you don’t know, bread cures 1 heart for each slice, if your health bar is 19/20, eating bread will restore you to full health!

Build a crafting table for your Minecraft house:

One such item is the crafting table, which is made up of 1 board and 4 planks. When you get near enough to a crafting grid and right-click, the 3×3 crafting grid will appear — this is where the fun starts!

Create the floors as the base:

It’s important to note that as soon as you start digging for building your Minecraft house floor, your character begins chipping away at the floor right under him. Not only does this take time since every three tiles require one chunk of your health bar, but if you’re standing near an edge when this happens, the next thing you’ll witness is you plummeting through empty air for a short distance before hitting the floor and losing half your heart to fall damage!

That’s why it’s critical and essential for you to stand near enough to whatever you’re attempting to create so that those chunks don’t make your floor disappear without really bracing the structure – don’t start building downwards until you’ve put all of your blocks and secured them in place.

As long as you are within five blocks of it, you may now create a completely solid floor or ground (survival mode only unless cheats are allowed). This is when those stairs come in hand, if there isn’t a block below you, you can safely walk away from your building without fear of colliding with it!

Build up walls for your Minecraft house:

Stack blocks on top of the framework to complete the wall. The wall may be as big as you like, but keep in mind that this is a basic house, so it shouldn’t be more than 5 blocks tall. Continue erecting barriers until all four are complete. The height of all four walls must be the same.

It’s time to get creative: cobblestone walls just take two wood boards and four-thread, which is commonly used to make bows.

Now build the stairs for your Minecraft house:

Next, we have stairs. Stairs can be crafted from six wood planks and very much resemble their real-life counterparts… only slightly larger… and with an extra block sticking out on one side. But hey, who doesn’t like that?

One thing you have to consider is that all the wooden planks align with each other in a harmony to build the kind of stairs you want.

To finish building the ceiling of your Minecraft House:

Ceilings should be approximately three blocks high, if you want it higher no issues. Some modern houses and large rural houses have a large ceiling. But you need to be capable of moving around without banging your head! but you’ll need a mechanism to get up there. Jump on one of the blocks in front of you. Simply hit the spacebar to leap. Jump once more and right-click to lay another block beneath you.

The goal is to build a strong platform from which to reach the tops of the walls. Remember you should always first build a strong platform and then start creating your ceiling or else it will be very hard and complex for you. Build from one wall to the other wall by laying blocks on the sides of the blocks that make up the wall once you have achieved the top of the wall.

Minecraft House Smelting

Lastly, You need to work on the art of smelting: 

We must first master the art of smelting. To drop one coal into the top slot, right-click over a furnace containing coal (discovered via mining coal ore). Now you may pick how many pieces of coal you would want to burn at once by hitting the right arrow key until it reads full – this indicates no more coal will be burned!

If you want to smelt anything, place a wooden instrument in the secondary slot (shovels work best because they’re speedier than pickaxes or axes). Then you may choose what you want to produce – iron ingots need eight planks instead of four, but yield three times as many ingots when melted!

List of Minecraft House Ideas:

Wood Cabin

Wood is an essential material in Minecraft which means that all Minecraft house ideas start with it. The first example of a wooden building is a cabin made from trees found in-game. Although the size of this structure is quite small, it offers enough protection from monsters or other players who may try to get inside your property. In addition, this type of house also looks very nice when decorated with appropriate furniture so it’s ideal for smaller families.

The second Minecraft house design is a small rural house made from wooden planks. I felt that more players could benefit from this type of home because it’s perfect for those who like to spend most of their time outside. This particular building also has two floors and two large gardens (one on the ground floor and one on the roof). A small river passes by the house which gives it a nice touch and makes it more lively.

Another great aspect about these types of wooden buildings is that they require very little maintenance, only small fixes every now and then and maybe some coloring if you decide to change things up a bit!

Medium rural Minecraft house:

These medium-sized rural houses are for those who need space than small houses but are not willing to build a large wood or stone house.

The second example is much larger and has two floors, four gardens, a swimming pool and even an indoor waterfall! This particular home looks very nice when decorated with neutral blocks such as stone which makes it look natural and cosy.

If you have trouble finding good looking natural blocks then I would recommend using the grass block sand /snow version instead. These types of surfaces are usually classified as being beautiful by most players so they won’t even notice your trick!

Rural stone Minecraft house:

Stone houses are usually smaller than modern ones but offer much better protection from other players. However, the reason why I included them in this list is that they can be combined with other styles (wood or modern) to form something bigger! The first stone house you see below is small and consists of only one floor but it’s perfect for those who like to keep things simple. 

Minecraft Modern house:

Modern houses are usually larger than their stones counterparts and have a more modern design which may even include some sort of futuristic elements. 

These modern types of buildings are very much unique because they are one of a kind, have special features and really push the limits when it comes to building possibilities.

We strongly advise you to use these sparingly because most players tend to get tired of them after a while. This is simply due to the fact that they require a lot of time, effort and work in order for players to actualize their vision.

Minecraft Medieval Sky Castle:

Last but not least there are medieval house ideas. This is the most ambitious Minecraft house project. For pro-Minecraft players too building a Medieval sky, a castle is a challenge, but if you are planning one then it would be the best ever thing for you. A Minecraft Medieval Sky Castle is like a milestone or achievement for players.

There you have it! 7 awesome Minecraft house ideas which should be enough inspiration for anyone who wishes to build something new or even completely change their style! Most of the time building in Minecraft is all about imagination so I hope that by showing you some of my creations, yours will be even more epic!
