    Your little courtyard is cute =) Looks like you're going to have a lot of terraforming to do if you want to keep it all flat!


    Thanks Teeshy! Yes, I was thinking I could make it work, but now I'm not so sure. I love it just as it is though so if even if I abandon the challenge it was still well worth doing.

    I just finished The First Refugees .. what a fun challenge!

    3 bedrooms for the Villagers





    My room and the storage room. The only entry to the storage room is from my room which has an iron door.





    My mine is inside now - so convenient!





    Main entry (iron door visible though the window) and water source





    lindgrenj6 - what a great video!

    This challenge sounds so interesting .. I have to give it a try.

    I was lucky enough to spawn in a very hospitable environment .. lots of trees, water, sand and sheep. The big challenge proved to be the iron. I found 5 on the second day but didn't come up with the last one until just a couple of minutes before the end of the third day. Just barely enough time to make the door and pop it into place. Whew!

    I've got a couple screenshots of the interior .. just 2 rooms, but I neglected to get an exterior shot. It's nothing but a cobblestone cube though so no great loss.

    Thanks to Steelfeathers for starting this challenge .. I've had a lot of fun with it so far. I'm happy to say that I just finished the Wooden Age and I hope I never see another wooden tool again. Nothing fancy but it got the job done.

    Xinkc - That's just mind boggling!

    Calderhs - Nice work! I like your wall especially.

    House, wall, wheat (along the inside of wall towards the back, cows. Gate not shown but it's there.

    Inside house - living room. Storage and bedroom beyond. Spawn point is the grassy green square.
