Not be a critic, but stairs with sighns on the side are ugly. Try using a different way to do it. Dont get me wrong; you did do a good job, just stirs look ugly. try this:(top view)
Any opinions on how to make it look better would be great!!
Uh ok, this is going to sound rude, no way I can make it sound nice. Destroy it, look back at the pictures in the thread, mainly, not the OP's. They aren't terrible, mind you, but he's sticking to much to the box theme. And a great height like you're house is, not good. Its to flat, to tall, to fat, use different materials, try a texture pack. I personally find most creations in original minecraft texture, very ugly, its just me, not saying it doesn't have potential, but this structure has ALOT of work needed.
Make it smaller first story, then maybe make a room or two on the top, use stairs as roofing, but go all the way around the house on the blocks that would be the flooring.
Also, WAY to much stone, just noticed that. WAY WAY to much stone.My quick house, whipped this up real fast for this thread.
I don't mean to be rude, but Ultimate really doesn't sound right for this thread. :/
This is more like, beginner to intermediate builders.
There are MUCH more advanced building things you can do that aren't covered in this, or probably not known to you.
@cut84li4e: Didn't you just say something about too much stone? What's up with the roof on your house, hm?
You do have a good point about the beginner/intermediate level, though. I'd rate BenJ's tricks at intermediate level, because they do seem to revolve around boxy houses. A really good house should blow the minds of everyone that passes by.
@Fire_Blazer: While I agree with cut84li4e and detest your exterior, the inside looks pretty good. Just... a little empty.
I'd also like to add a tip: If any side of your house is completely flat, fix it. Add a buttress, awning, roof extension, balcony, or similar feature. Actually, you shouldn't leave any flat space bigger than 5x3 on the outside of a house.
I built a new house; will upload pics soon.
