There is no option in this poll for composite materials. Its the best. Building strictly out of some one kind of block makes your house/castle/whatever look bland and boring. Make it cosy and tasteful, you can even use custom colored wool with patterns (design them yourself!) for wallpapers, tapestries or carpets.

I make them out of cobblestone, but if you need to make a griefer-proof house, you should do it like this:

Outside layer out of Wood/Cobble (preferably Cobble)
Next layer is made out of Obsidian (for explosion proof houses, if fire proof you can make the layers out of wood-stone-wood)
The Inside layer out of Wood/Cobble (Whatever you choose)

The Obsidian layer is the most expensive to make, but it serves good protection from TNT griefers AND is fire proof.
Even if they break the walls, they still have an Obsidian wall to break.

On the bottom of the tower/house, just put some lava and on top of the lava source put Obsidian so it wont burn your wooden floor. That way, no one will be able to grief your house, the only way would be the roof but if your house is quite small they wont stand a chance againts your defense system.

I use: Stone and cobblestone for my castles
Wood for my cabins and small houses
Dirt for Hobbit-holes
Caves because they're caves
I build underwater when I want to look outside and see squidies
I use shiny blocks for shiny buildings.

And who uses gravel for building? It falls on your head!
Thats the point its gravel!!! :)

Well i make mine mostly out of smooth stone due to it being strong and that it looks smexy. I also make houses out of fences, it's hard but it looks pretty good in the end.

A nice house is a fine combination of many materials.

Most of the time I use wool for my houses, but that may be because I use my own texture pack and wool looks awesome (simple white block) :)

I just love cooked cobstone, it tastes so nice and looks soo good... oh wait forget what I said about the taste. It's just lookin' good ;) But I personally like sand, due to my texture pack. Sand or sandstone.
