Also, you dont have to follow my ideas exactly, be creative and do your own thing! (Post pictures as well, they're nice to look at )
One last thing before I start I made a Twitter especially for my builds. Im on there constantly (now even) and its a great way to reach me with whatever you might need. Here's the link!
HowTo: Build A Barn
To begin you will need:
* 479 Wooden Planks
* 667 Logs
* 30 Fence
* 30 Signs
* 12 Wooden Doors
* 64 Torches
* Pickaxe/Shovel/Axe for digging and mistakes
[**A Piece of Wool Separates Steps**]
Note: I was placing the last of the items used for this build in the chest when a creeper came and blew up the chest and part of my castle wall I went and counted everything to try and be as accurate as possible but be aware the numbers might not be 100% correct. I'm sorry, I tried my best.
I know this is a lot of wood, but well worth it. If you don't want to destroy your forests you can also replace the logs with red wool and the wooden planks with white wool on the outside. IMHO that would look just as good. It will give it like an old style cartoon effect lol
Step 1.) Dig a Hole (Insert Yogscast Joke Here) 17x17x1 to be exact
Step 2.) Fill it with Wooden Planks
Step 3.) Outline your walls with Logs
Just in Case Your Still Confused
Step 4.) Fill the "holes" with Wooden Planks
Step 5.) Ring the Door Frames with Logs, Just for a decorative look, totally optional
Step 6.) Time for the stalls, I really over complicated this when I began building it. I tried different designs for 2 days and finally settled on this one. This can be easily changed to how big/little and how many stalls you want in your barn. For this I made 6.
I tried to keep it as symmetrical as possible, you can see the middle stall is off but I want to keep it double doors because of the wolves struggle to go though just 1 door.
Here's a view from inside the of the middle stall, shows how I did the walls
A view from the other side
A top-ish view
Then I just reproduced the first side on the other
Step 7.) Now lets roof this thing! Again I put Wooden Planks down for a more decorative look, plus it works as a guide for the roof.
Then I placed Logs to frame the loft
Then I went a little higher
Now cover the entire top with Logs with 1 sticking off both ends
Keep going until the entire thing is covered
Step 8.) Connect the 2 Lofts with Logs and place Torches to light up the inside and outside
And that's it!
Now all you have to do is move in your animals!
Thanks for Viewing and Enjoy
Remember to post your pictures for everyone to see!
Also.. I went one size larger on the pictures? I didnt want to go to big and just over kill it.. So is this better or should I go larger? I use Flickr so it has the different sizes. Just comment what you prefer (along with comments and requests for future builds!)
