A building I'm currently in construction of called 'THE NEXUS' :SSSS:
I used a map editor to help make parts of this, however some of it was formed by me. :Pig:

For a work in progress, this structure is still win.

Here is a simple study I made.  Nothing too fancy, but easily the best room in my base.

Here's the enterance to my fortress.
The glass on the right is just a temporary guard for my chests out there. I'm slowly moving my materials down to my storage room!
Posted Image

Here's a shot of the steps. I'm incredibly happy with them!
Posted Image

And here's the main chamber.
It's quite incomplete but I've got all the area mined out. The left wall is completely empty but will soon be home to a Church, Forge and Pub. Also gotta do something with the floor.
Posted Image

Here's what the outside of the right hand side looks like.
Both sides are sleep areas and the middle is a farm.
Posted Image

Here's the lounge (first story of each side).
Looks the same on both sides.
Posted Image

And here's the bed area. Looks the same on the second and third stories.
Posted Image

This is the enterance to the Arena. It's at the back of the main chamber.
Posted Image

SKELATON?!
Posted Image

Here's some shots of said Arena. It's still under construction but it's about 80% done.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Here's some various other shots.
Posted Image
Posted Image

And my storage area. It's at the bottom of the fortress in the middle.
The wooden door leads to a room with more chests full of cobblestone.
Posted Image
Posted Image


Entire thing is done legit (Unless you count some mods as cheating!).
I'm often streaming construction at http://ghostinthestr.../minecraft.html. Not right now, however.

Swiftly, I thought and have been told that my house is pretty nice.


It is pretty nice, nice interior.

But the exterior is a bit wonky for my taste, waterfall thing, big solid block of wood to the right, very woody in general.

Interior is wonderful however.

I was just hoping to find more solid demonstrations of realistic homes for a bit of inspiration.

Wow, oh wow. I love that entrance.

The Minepick in the center is simple and yet is so amazing...sorry to say good sir, but I shall be using that particular design myself sometime in the future. Thanks for being so talented.

/praise Copeland.

Thanks for the compliments on the interior, and I know that the exterior is god ugly, But I have no idea how to make it better.

My manor is complete! I call it Summermyst Manor!

Here's a view from outside.
Posted Image

Here's the way on and off the property,a ladder to the water below.
Posted Image

This is the primary hall,which provides access to the entire estate.
Posted Image

My farm,which holds wheat and reeds.
Posted Image

My tree farm,which is five floors high,and the second image shows how high each floor is.
Posted Image
Posted Image

The Reading Room. A place with a beautiful view so you can read books.
Posted Image

My grand library! It possesses a grand volume of books,ranging from topics such as "Affixed to the shelf" to "You can't read this,boyo!"
Posted Image

This is the antechamber to the upper floor. I enjoy the design.
Posted Image

This is the viewing gallery,which provides a beautiful view of the surrounding environs.
Posted Image

This is the Conference Hall. It's large,airy,and quite well done,in my opinion.
Posted Image

This here is the Speaker's Perch. It is where the current Speaker of the Conference stands to deliver their words.
Posted Image

Aah,my bedroom. Quaint,isn't it?
Posted Image

Finally,the bathroom. Literally. I give you what I believe to be Minecraft's first indoor bathtub.
Posted Image


This is my manor,and I will post pictures of the deep sea mine sometime soon. I hacked in the lightstone for the sake of time saving. Everything else is legit.

Also,a quirky fact. Any part of Summermyst Manor that's not in direct contact with the ground is supported by stilts. If the stilts would reach water,they're made of (cobble)stone for one meter above the surface down.

I was going to finally post images of my old manor house but then I saw Copeland's pix and.. oh okay then...

From the south, somewhat inspired by the Scots Baronial style.
Posted Image
It's the shape and size it is because when I was looking to build a base I found that sheer cliff and a line of rock running across the top of the ridge. Those formed by guides and inspiration for the build. I built out of raw stone (gained legit) because of that.

A close view from the south.
Posted Image
You can see the Archer's Nest on the left, with the garden above it. To the right is the bridge to what was supposed to be my mine, but turned out to be far poorer that anticipated. The bridge was a WiP when this image was taken. Not long after I put an arch under it to support it.

Okay circling around we pass the archer's nest and the entrance. I was planning to fortify this with a Haha but after the chunk errors messed my world I was too hear broken to keep playing it.
Posted Image

Here we are approaching from the north. Yes I put up a lot of cacti to make this a killing ground for mobs.
Posted Image

This is the entrance. You can see the thick walls to prevent serious Creeper damage. That's the Archer's nest to the right. yeah it looks a bit grey; in Brown and Bloom it looked like I'd made it out of concrete. If you spot that block of gravel, it marks the original murder hole which I continued to use even after making the Archer's Nest to deal with unwelcome night time callers.
Posted Image

My living room. The chest is for my adventuring gear and stuff recovered from dungeons. The door leads to the Archer's Nest which I royally cocked up once I put cacti down in front of it.
Posted Image
Posted Image

My workshop. With forge/incinerator and that block of iron is supposed to be an anvil.
Posted Image

My warehouse; on the same floor (basement) as workshop, and never completed.
Posted Image

Finally the western side, from the bridge.
Posted Image

I'm afraid I don't seem to have any images of the Glass Battlement, the Solar or the other chambers. I hope you enjoy what I've shown you and find it just slightly aesthetically pleasing.

Heres some. The interior is rather spartan though. The house is only two days old, I havent gotten everything I need yet.

This is the bottom floor/my living room. (Small cottage) Im gonna add some chairs or something I think.
Posted Image

This is the second floor/the loft, whatever its called, up the ladder. Again, not much decoration. The windows give a good view though.
Posted Image

This is my farm. Why am I showing this?
Posted Image

This is my porch/terrace/whatever you want. I study mob habits from up here.
