This is my Floating Island Cabin Chalet. Built by hand with legit materials (other than Lightstone) on my SMP server. It took me around 2 weeks to do. I started with a 27 wide circle then built the base underneath then all the dirt on top.
I have yet to finish the inside...
You can also see the Island(s) that it is attached to that my friend is building. Also pardon the crappy dirt bridge, I am waiting for Notch to implement those wooden half blocks then I am going to build a sweet rope bridge.

Holy crap. I don’t know where to begin praising people for making awesome stuff. So, I think I’ll cop out and not even try. lol Just a big thanks to everyone that is contributing to this thread. It is quite something now.
Here’s my latest “EPIC” proportioned construction. I have tons of smaller stuff, but that really isn’t what this thread is about is it? This is mostly an MCEdit construction because it would take about a year to build by hand.
“The Twilight Realm”
This is a 326x250x45 block, glass and obsidian, bio-enclosure located 18 blocks beneath the sea.
I built the original design for the vaulted ceilings by hand for my cathedral (not finished yet, I’m only at 90 deaths/graves). Then I used MCEdit to copy and paste it then change blocks into glass and place the glowstone.
Because there is so much water above the glass, sunlight is not strong enough to prevent monsters from spawning. The light provided by the glowstone allows normal animals to spawn. What you get is an eerie twilight.
Running around in here trying to build on the surface is pretty much suicide. You need a much better defensive strategy and must work very fast until you get a defensive parameter set up.
Here are a few from my current main world.
Let me know what you all think
I'm on dial-up and I can't even get the thumbnails to load, let alone the first 6+meg image file. Imageshack times out before I can download. I think it has about a 10 minute timer for that sort of thing for some weird reason. I'm lucky to download 1meg per 10mins. :/
Here's my latest. I'm skipping a few projects and jumping to what I made today. A grist mill, in this case a windmill. I’ve wanted to do one for ages now. It was more difficult in designing this in MSPaint than actually building it in Minecraft. The sails were easy too when I realized I could just start at the bottom and build up with them. No dirt scaffolding needed. I did run into one major problem with the second building. The top stairs of the roof were perfectly divided by the edges of chunks so the stairs became invisible. I had to use regular wood blocks for the peak instead.
I've already posted this in the picture thread but i think this belongs here too. This is a prime example of the amazing terrain generator! a huge natural cavern inside a huge natural valley area of my beta 1.2 world, + the entrance to said cavern (inside looking out, all natural and unmodified at this point)
^BUMP Great thread, please keep the contributions coming! I find that even if I am not capable of producing such wonderful creations, they do inspire me to do better and have given me ideas that would not have occurred to me. I do hope to contribute at some point in the future myself...

My small castle I made as a first home for the smp server I currently play on. Not as big as some other but it's 100% made from gathered supplies and hand placed. Currently working on something even bigger but it's not done so no pics yet. The giant platform will eventually be used for something I guess.
Everything everyoen posts looks awesome, I especially love the ones who give save links :biggrin.gif: I can't post a save because I don't own the server.
