This step is optional. Build a small house on the island 5x4 with cobblestone and wood planks. Use glass panes for the windows. Plant a sapling on the island. cut a hole in the grass and fill it with water, place some lilly pads on the water. use bonemeal on the grass to make tall grass grow. Plant some flowers.
