Hi guys Leostereo here again with another awesome tutorial. This time we will be building an easy-to-build mansion. So after a "tutorial break" I am happy to give you this. I had already posted images of this some months ago but I never really felt for doing a tutorial of it. But here it is.

Suggested texture pack is the Wayukian pack so go download it if you don't have it (trust me, it's amazing!).

So lets start build I guess. I will mostly do this in layers.

Materials required (list by Ixidorsbane)

Cobblestone – 174
Door – 2
Glass – 96
Ladder – 6
Moss stone – 22
Pine Log – 62
Stone slab – 50
Wooden plank – 408
Wooden slab – 33
Wooden stair – 222

1. Start off with a 19 by 11 flat area. I am using a flatgrass map here.

Posted Image

2. Now add the logs, these are pine as they look very good. Add one in each corner, then (from right) go three steps left and place a log, then four steps more and add another log. Do the same from the left too. It should leave a three block wide space in the middle.

Posted Image

3. Here's the first layer. I made a pattern with half-blocks and mossy cobblestone as a frame.  Fill out as shown with wood, it will be the floor. Between the three blocks I mentioned before you put three wooden stairs, it will be the entrance.

Posted Image

4. Now add the first layer of the wall. Notice the wood, it should be four blocks between it an the closest log. Don't forget the glass.

Posted Image

5. Here is the glass pattern I will be using. You can come up with your own but I prefer this. The doors can be a bit tricky to get right. And don't forget to raise the log too.

Posted Image

6. This layer is identical to the one before except that you put glass over the door.

Posted Image

7. This will be the second floor. Fill it all up with wood except for where the log is.

Posted Image

8. Nothing special here except the balcony thinhy, add glass there instead.

Posted Image

9. I used the same glass pattern here except for the balcony and far middle where I put a cobblestone in the middle.

Posted Image

10. Add an identical layer except that you put cobblestone over the balcony glass.

Posted Image

11. Time for the balcony roof. I put half blocks in the edges and a normal wooden block in the corner.

Posted Image

12. Here is the second balcony roof layer. I made the stairs of stone and the half-blocks of smooth stone so it would be easier to see what I did. I replaced them with normal wood later.

Posted Image

13. Add almost a full frame of wood except over the front windows where I put cobblestone.

Posted Image

14. Time to use some stairs. These should be the SAME layer as the wooden frame and stick out one block from the building. In the edges I put half blocks and in the corners I put normal wooden blocks. Notice how I built on the front.

Posted Image

15. Just begin to add additional layers. Remember the corner and edge rule. But do it right, stairs take FOREVER to destroy!

19. Aaaand the roof should be done as you place the half blocks on the top!


Posted Image

20. Here's how to do a window. Take out three stairs.

Posted Image

21. And put wood to the left and right, glass in the middle and a half block ontop, simple!

Posted Image

22. With a little gravel path it should look like this, fantastic!

Posted Image

23. Here is how I made my crafting area, I dug out a 3 by 5 hole into the second level and put pillars of log in the edges. A nice little carpet of wool is nice, and some bookshelves for a more "roomy" feeling.

Posted Image

24. Here is how it looks on the second level.

Posted Image

And were basically done, you can decorate however you want inside. Here is my full decoration on my first version.

Very epic tutorial. I might just randomly build this.

Thanks for the +1! If I'm going to build this on the server I might need some space.

If you're as sexy as your houses are you probably have a harem.

This may sound stupid, but what is the white-ish material in the 3rd step? I thought sandstone but it doesn't seem to be...
