Whoa. Thanks! A lot more comments have popped up since I took a break. All throughout this past week I've been meaning to get back to working on the castle mansion, though I feel that when I get my hands on the blu-ray with extras I may find more clues to building it accurately. The mansion is quite complex without enough angles and I've been spending a lot of time trying to figure out how things fit inside. The iTunes release of the movie has helped shed more light on things too.
I'm a bit shocked to find that someone has also started to build Arendelle around the same time and their screenshots are disturbingly similar to my build. http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/frozen-arendelle-wip-/ While there's only so many ways to build something with these big blocks the strangest part is how they made the corner towers - apart from the roof, it looks almost exactly the same! I know that the way I placed those birch wood blocks is not accurate to the movie, but it is what I settled with. I'm really weirded out by this.
It could be because as I mentioned from the start, I livestream every moment of building the castle and there's quite a few lurkers in chat. Mostly nice people. Here's the latest stream (may include horrible singing), until I take some more pleasent screenshots. http://www.twitch.tv/heroharmony/b/504086407
Again, thank you all for your nice comments.
On another note, for me fellow reddit Frozen fans. I made these three themed albums of screenshots from the movie.

Feb 9, 2014A few close friends have joined in to help analyze screenshots and give me a second opinion on everything. Arendelle's castle mansion is the most difficult part, but at least it now has a starting spot. Next we're going to continue building the castle walls around the mansion to determine the available inner area.Posted in: Creative Mode
The snow on the ground is the result of us playing with snowmen. Cause Olaf.

Nothing new to show so far, just a lot of the castle wall has been manually built by friends wanting something to do. I've been scratching my head trying to figure out the castle mansion floor plan.

you can use world edit /brush command to make mountains out of sand and then make it stone or snow or whatsoever
Ooh, thanks for the suggestion! I found a good video explaining exactly what you said.
Feb 5, 2014I've been very obsessed with Disney's Frozen. I can't throw enough money at it, so I decided to start building the charming Arendelle castle in Minecraft. I'm building the castle on a private minecraft server and only making use of what vanilla provides.Posted in: Creative Mode
I'm by no means a pro builder. For the first time in forever - I've returned to Minecraft, so suggestions are welcome. Here are the first few screenshots after 4 days of play.

I'll add more screenshots if there is any interest. However, do note that this is a private server and the gates to Arendelle are closed for now...
At some point I think I would also like to build the town in front of the castle and find a bukkit mod to let me generate the mountains.
