The build itself wasn't silly, but I suppose its fate was. I built a small wooden house, 4 tall, 3x4 width. It had enough room only for a double-chest and a crafting table. On the second night, I hallowed out the floor beneath, and added a basement (same size) with a furnace in the center. As SOON as I had a proper shelter, I lit the thing on fire. I left my cacti planted out back, harvested the chests, and ignited. More than a week later, it's still burning. I'm not sure what exactly happened, but water from the ocean is now flowing into the revealed stone basement.
It's not really an actual shelter. But one of my first minecraft nights was spent huddled in a boat out in the middle of the ocean, praying nothing would get me. All because I decided to go explore away from my actual shelter and got terribly lost so I decided to try and sail back.
Surprisingly I survived, only having to fend off a spider or two.
The silly part: There was a zombie at the door. Being the first house I made, I placed the door in a stupid spot (It basically wasted 4 blocks of usable space, because the zombie attacked me through the door if I stood within 1 square diagonally)

I tried opening up the chicken to take out the egg but it didn't work. (works with pigs. Why not chickens?)
"As you can see, I just ****ing teleported. Moving on. . ."
my current shelter is literally a hole in the ground, which i found when i spawned and just started walking in a direction, i fell, ended up with half a heart, and had to try my hardest to not run into a mob and find SOMETHING i could use to pile upwards so i can get wood...
