How To Design and Build Original Minecraft Houses | Part 1

In Minecraft, you don’t want to have some generic old house that everybody has. It’s one thing to copy a pallet, but a frame is not good for copying, especially when you’re copying a generated structure.



While this is cuter than the average villager hut, it still is way to generic. To prove that it’s possible to make an epic build with a generated pallet, we’re going to build a house with this common pallet.

The first thing you want to do is place a series of your frame blocks in a random pattern, spacing them out.


Moving one block back, add your walls. Then, on the top block only, add your frame block to the outer layer. Feel free to adjust the shape as you go.


If you are adding another level, then copy the walls and frames exactly on top of the main floor.


The next thing you want to do is divide up the rooms and place the upper floor. Then, add a roof.


I added a wrap-around balcony and windows to the house. When I was creating the roof, the shape started to bother me, so I practically rebuilt half of it. I then copied the build to a place with more scenery so you could see what it would look like in a survival scenario. 

Using stained glass panes adds such a more realistic feel, and makes it much more elegant.
