Minecraft Medieval House

Medieval houses in Minecraft come in all shapes and sizes. You may want a sturdy Minecraft castle built of stone, host to gothic cobblestone features, eerie fireplaces, and a hidden lair. Maybe you’re looking for a simple rustic village dwelling fashioned from oak, encompassed by a canopy of trees or placed in a rural green hideaway.Our favourite of the bunch has to be this combination of the two, with all the grand stonework of a castle, paired with barn-like features. This cosy, simple Minecraft build means you won’t get too bogged down in the design aspect, saving you time to explore.

Minecraft underground house

A more recent trend for Minecraft houses is to construct a basement property, with stairs leading to the entrance to your underground base. To make this unique living quarters, you’ll need to hollow out the area in which you want to construct your base. Then, when you’ve built up the walls, stairs, and everything else your property needs, you can stick some glass on the roof to allow some sunlight to shine through. If you’re particularly keen on keeping plants indoors, this is a great option.

This can be tough to keep efficiently lit at night, but that’s nothing a few torches or glowstone blocks can’t fix. Do you want to know the best part? Because this is in Minecraft, you won’t ever need to worry about mold forming on the walls. Just be sure to have sufficient fencing surrounding your house, otherwise you could have a rather rude knock at your door at night.

Minecraft treehouse

These Minecraft houses aren’t for vertigo sufferers, but Minecraft treehouses are a great way to escape the creepers that come out at night to save you time repairing your Minecraft shield. Treehouses are also a simple way to get a great view of the local area, or a vantage point to shoot arrows at Minecraft mobs.

You can build your new home perched atop a tree, or build a brand new tree from scratch. Getting the base right is essential in the construction of your Minecraft treehouse, whether you want a tree that functions as a house, or a house at the top of a tree. This concealed and peaceful home, adorned with rose bushes, featuring a nifty trapdoor is a great place to start. Just make sure to include a ladder, or you won’t be able to get back in.

Minecraft Wooden House

Your wooden house in Minecraft can be as big or small as you like, from wood-panelled palatial mansions to cosy log cabins positioned on the outskirts of a Minecraft village, you can let you imagination run riot as long as you have the supplies.Wooden houses are extremely versatile, easy to gather materials for, and can be created to suit your Minecraft needs. If you fancy extending it later on to create more rooms, then the relative ease at which you can gather materials makes a wooden house an attractive proposition. Also, this sweet wooden cabin comes with a porch, so you can relax and take it easy before setting off on an adventure.

Minecraft suburban house

If you’re looking for something simple, practical, and perhaps familiar, this suburban Minecraft house might be to your liking. It’s got all the features of a typical suburban home: two storeys, a garage, and a porch.Despite its humble nature, it’s still a good-looking build made up of concrete, stone, and quartz. You’re also free to make the rooms a little bigger if you so wish, but do keep in mind that you’ll have to scale everything up in order to keep it looking homely.

Minecraft Modern House

If a rustic abode isn’t your style, there are plenty of modern Minecraft house designs to choose from. Materials needed are a little harder to come by. They include stone, slabs, and clay to mould your modern crib, complete with large glass windows and a balcony to soak up the views.As such, modern houses take more time to plan and build, so you will need to be dedicated and have everything prepared in advance. We love the modern house design in the video above, with its floor to ceiling glass walls and stunning landscaped garden, complete with grass hedges and a meandering lake.

Minecraft Beach House

Perhaps your starting location is somewhere close to the coast and you want something a little more fitting for the local area. Whether your idea of a beach house is a ramshackle hut nestled on the waters edge, or a serene three-tiered mansion complete with a swimming pool, there are tonnes to choose from.Our favourite is the unassuming, easy to build villa above. It has clever use of trap doors as decorations, but takes quite a lot of quartz blocks to construct. It has a small pool to tip your tootsies in, fitting for a relaxing end to a hard day’s adventuring.
