We start off by digging out a 9x9 flat area. This is gonna be the size of our house.
We fill out the whole 9x9 area with wooden planks.
Afterwards, we add our first layer to the building
Add second layer
Add third layer
Add glass panes to fill out the open area. No....this is not a mistake. We only do that on one side of the building
We start doing the roof by simply placing stone slabs around the whole house like shown in the picture below.
Same as step 6 but one layer above.
I used a dirt block to start building on this layer. Makes it a bit easier. Afterwards we're gonna dig it away.
Finish off the roof by adding another layer of wooden planks.
Then fill out the rest with glass.
I like to put a glowstone in the middle of the roof because it lights out the whole building.
On this way you don't have to put ugly torches everywhere.
This is how it should look from the outside afterwards
It is up to you how you design your interior.
But I'll give you some ideas by showing how I do my furniture on this building
I like to put bookshelves in the corner as they give a nice little contrast to all the wooden planks.
Two chests to store your stuff and a bed to sleep in
On the other side we have our nice little "kitchen" with a crafting table and four furnaces.
Place wooden slabs above to give the house some more details.
Put fences in the corner to give the whole thing some support
I also like to put another door at the other side which leads directly to my mine.
Two block to the left you can optionally dig down and build a bigger storage room beneath your house
I hope this tutorial helped you building your own little starter house.

Really? Needs more colour and contrast , looking at a build only out of planks and slabs is not that nice ...
Well. It's supposed to be a starter house. Of course you could use normal wood to bring more contrast into the building.
But I hate using wood at the begining because in my opinion, it's a waste of ressources At least at the beginning.
thread necromancy at its finest, the last post was from 2012 august, you are almost 4 whole years late. i can only help you by saying that this texture pack was probably for minecraft 1.3, so you can start looking there.
I think it's the old Soartex, predecessor to my resource pack, Invictus.
