I'm so happy with this house, I just have to post it here. (:
Vicious, your modern houses actually inspired me to get up and make it.
That house is simply the best thing that has ever happened to Minecraft. It's truly spectacular.
Anway, here are a few shots of the only above-ground house I've built that wasn't a first-night shelter. Otherwise, I always hole up underground.
I like the house a lot because of the sandstone and the multiple floors. What makes it interesting, though, is the fact that it's built on a floating glass island. This presented a lot of limitations, so some sections have a sandstone floor. I admit that it needs some work, but here are some more shots:
Using up some lapis blocks on the all-glass first floor:
The multiple glass ceilings:
And a closer view of the house.
Sorry if that was a bit long for a first post, but what do you guys think?
Note that the bricks and carpets are now a different texture. The bricks are now the multicolor brick option (Painterly), and the carpet is whatever that newest wool option is called. I need to take new screenshots of my house to reflect the changes in textures. But yeah. That's my house. Hope you like it. :smile.gif:
Bookmarked this thread for future viewing. Impressive how architechturally competent some of you are. The web page offers some pretty nifty ideas too. Still, I have to despise anyone with enough money to afford any of that.
I'm using the Tronic graphics pack. I don't have exterior screens as the server I was on is down due to the update. These are somewhat old and things have changed a little, but still basically the same. The house is built into a tall and steep cliff face.
