[TUTORIAL] Easy, resource friendly and great looking house!
Posted 21 June 2012 - 12:37 AM
Today I am bringing you a tutorial on how to build a small house which looks great and it doesn't cost a fortune resource wise to make!
What you are going to need:
94 Sandstone slabs
30 Sandstone stairs
60 Oak planks
12 Oak logs
8 Birch planks
13 Glass blocks
How to build the house
Dig a 8 x 7 x 6 hole. Thats 8 Long, 7 Wide and 6 Deep.
Build a cobblestone wall inside the hole next to the walls and fill the floor with oak planks.
On the long sides of the wall make a 2x1 hole and on the short sides a 1x1 hole where all the holes should have cobblestone behind them.
Place cobblestone at the top of the walls like the picture shows.
Place the birch planks like the picture shows.
Place glass between all of the birch blocks.
Place another layer of cobblestone on top of the birch and glass.
Place the oak logs at the corners.
Fill the top layer of the hole with oak planks and leave a hole in the corner.
Place the trapdoor on the cobblestone below the birch plank and build a ladder down to the basement.
Add a door so that no meanies can enter your lovely home while you sleep!
Build the roof by placing the sandstone stairs on the top layer of cobblestone and add sandstone slabs in the corners.
Place a layer of sandstone slabs on the top layer of cobblestone and fill out the rest of the roof.
Place sandstone slabs around your house like shown in the picture and create a 3x2x1 hole in front of the door which you fill with cobblestone.
Step 15. (optional)
Place torches in the holes you made before and place the furnace, workbench and chests as shown in the picture.
Step 16. (optional)
Place a bed in the corner or wherever you want to place it, and place whatever other items you wish here!
And you are done!
The best thing about this house is that you can use any type of wood you want!
I prefer to use 2 different types of wood, as the walls and the floor get different appearances.
And here are some pictures of combinations that are different from the oak log/ birch plank combo that I used in the tutorial.
Oak plank/ Spruce log combo.
