Hi guys!
I recently saw that doku had released a dark version of his new texture pack "dokucraft" and I thought it looked amazing. So I wanted to show you guys how to really make doku's new pack look amazing with an easy-to-build house. Here is a rather detailed guide with many screenshots and explanations for them.

I also have another of these tutorials in which I show you how to make a nice caslte! It can be found here! So please check it out too!

Note: This is only the smallest size of this house, you can add multiple stories and bigger floors and such so don't complain if it's too small!

WARNING: Extreme coziness!

VIDEO TUTORIAL BY paulsoaresjr, a really nice and famous guy from Youtube!


Great video tutorial by KnowOneWho.


Edit:The bed is bugged with the double doors, I suggest you only build one door and put glass or something else instead of the other one.


Estimated requirements:
~ 32x Log of any kind (pine looks best imo)
~ 3-4 stacks of cobblestone (with wall add 2-3 stacks)
~ A stack of wooden stairs
~ A couple of ladders
~ 32 Smoothstone halfsteps
~ 32 glass
~ 32-64 pieces of fence
~ 20 gravel
~ Some torches
~ 2 Wooden doors
~ Common stuff to decorate, workbench, chests, furnaces, jukebox, bed, bookshelves, paintings, cake and so on.
For better look use lightstone (I'll show where)
There are probably a lot more items that you can use but that would be most of them.

Here is how to build it:

1. Begin to find a 6x8 flat area, with a wall you need a bit more.
Posted Image

2. Dig 3 blocks down in the whole marked area.
Posted Image

3. Fill with cobble as walls and wood as floor. This will be the basement.
Posted Image

4. Add a frame with cobblestone with dark wood in the corners and fill out with wood to make the floor in your house. Also do the entrance thing.
Posted Image

5. Begin to build the walls as shown in the picture, don't forget the entrance!
Posted Image

6. Add another frame of cobble and put more pine wood in the corners. Stack a fence onto another at the entrance, then build the little roof there too.
Posted Image

7. Begin with the next layer, which will be the first bit of the roof. There are cobble at two walls, stairs at two, pine in the corners, and on the front it's merged with the entrance roof. Just follow how I built, but don't forget that there are stairs on the back of the house too!
Posted Image

8. Simply build as shown in the picture.
Posted Image

9. Build the roof with normal wooden stairs, but use two wooden blocks in the middle front to make it look better with the entrance. After that the actual house is done!
Posted Image

Now I will show some more pictures where I added some windows to the basement, a wall, decoration inside and so on. You can decorate it however you want, and the wall is just for a bit of protection and you can build it how big you want.

Here you can see the completed house from the outside, I build the windows for the basement with a pice of glass and a stone halfstep, like this from the side.

A very nice view from the inside showing the decoration, please tell me it looks nice!  :DBlock:
Notice the lightstone lamps I built.

And finally the basement.

Please at least try to build it yourself and show me the results with a picture. Please use other texture packs too.

That is a nice looking house! Only problem is that it might not look so nice in other textures.

I find that texture pack to be absolutely hideous. Any other pack would greatly improve the house.
Nabobery!, a(n outdated) texture pack sans banner! (Banner coming soon)

Nice job on the tutorial, I will build a few variations with no texture pack and post the pics
Check out my minecraft tools, mods, or maybe my website!  I've got tons of applications (both minecraft related and not) which some of you may find useful.  Thanks!

That is one purdy house! It's a bit too small for my tastes, but I guess I could mod it to whatever shape I wanted. Could you maybe post a picture with the defauls skin? These other skins are just to epic for me! :P

This is a nice tutorial. I tried it out just out of curiosity, and I'm pleased with the results. It's a lot smaller than my usual builds so very cottage-like. Took a few pics here using a custom painterly texture pack.
