This is Kingkuma, and for my first instructable, I will be showing you how to make a mountain lodge in minecraft! I tried to make this tutorial as complete as possible, but feel free to comment on it to ask any questions.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step 1: Find a Seed
You are going to need a seed with an extreme hills biome / extreme hills + biome. You can easily google this, but I used the seed “IMAFORTRESS”. If you are on minecraft 1.9 (for pc, by the way; - I’m not sure this works for the console edition, and I know pocket edition won’t work at all.) You should spawn in a forest biome and nearby (around 100 to 200 blocks away) there will be an extreme hills biome.
Step 2: Step 2: Find a Slope
To make this mountain lodge have a real feel of ruggedness, you will want to find a slope like the one in the picture. If you are building this on a flat area, you may be able to skip the next 2 steps.
For the best look, you want to find one with this isometric stairstep look. (English translation - The hill will look like the platform from the game “Q-bert”.)
Step 3: Step 3: Place Down Your Logs for the Foundation.
Measure out an area of the hill (the sides must be odd numbers for the windows and roof to work,) and put a log pillar in each corner up to the height you want your floor at. Then, place a log pillar every other block along the edge. I used oak, but feel free to use other logs. (Tip - Acacia, birch or jungle logs don’t look as good as oak, spruce or dark oak.)
Step 4: Step 4: Place Down Your Stone Pillars.
Then, fill in the gaps with some kind of stone brick. Any kind will do. If you want to, put some vines for ivy growing on the wall.
Step 5: Step 5: Put Down the Floor.
This is kind of self - explanatory, just use some kind of planks.
Step 6: add walls.
Get some wood (again, spruce, dark oak or oak looks best,) and build rows of logs as the walls. MAKE SURE THE END WITH THE RINGS IS ON THE ENDS OF THE WALLS! Also, extend the logs 1 block over the foundation, as shown. This will make it look like a decent log cabin.
Step 7: Step 7: Add Some Windows
Again, this is kind of self - explanatory, just use some kind of glass, not pumpkins or some other opaque block. (Don’t use ice, either. This house will have a fireplace.)
Step 8: Step 8: Build the Porch.
Add a door on one of your walls and build a covered porch. It doesn't need to be fancy like mine, just cover it so the snow won’t get on the porch. (if you built yours on overhang, like mine, you can add a walkway and some supports later. I recommend making your porch face east, so it faces the sunrise. Press f3 to see which direction you are facing.
Step 9: Step 9: Build the Fireplace
In one corner of your house opposite your, porch, take a 3x3x3 area and substitute the kind of stone bricks you used on the foundation for the wooden walls. Then, put a block of netherrack in the middle and fence it off with some stairs.
Step 10: Step 10: Add the Windows.
This is why you made the floor’s perimeter an odd number. Find the middle point of each side and build a pillar of logs up about 5 - 10 blocks. Then put a pillar in all of the corners but the one with the fireplace. If you have it there, your house might burn down. Then add the windows up to the top of these logs. (Yes, I KNOW I have a wooden section on my chimney on my picture of my finished house. I fixed that after I finished because I remembered that no matter how high you are above fire, your wood will still burn. I just didn't want to take my top floor off and retake all of my pictures.)
Step 11: Step 11: Extend the Chimney.
Extend the chimney up to the level of the windows.
Step 12: Step 12: Place Down the Upper Floor.
Again, this is kind of self - explanatory, use some kind of liquid block. JUST KIDDING! Use the same kind of planks you used downstairs. (I was checking if you were paying attention. I feel bad for you if you actually flooded your house.) Then add a staircase or ladder going up to his floor.
Step 13: Step 13: Build the Upper Windows
Use the same method used on the lower ones, just make them only 3 blocks high.
Step 14: Step 14: Build the Roof.
Place 2 lines of wooden planks on the sides of your house that are not the porch side or opposite to the porch side. Then, go up and over one block closer to the middle , and place a line of planks there. Go up one block and place another line. Repeat these 2 steps until the sides of the roof meet.
Step 15: Step 15: Guess What? Extend the Chimney. Again.
Tear out a 3x3 hole out of the roof above the chimney and build the chimney up to the roof height. Add the windows in on the open spaces.
Step 16: Step 16: Place Down Your Stuff.
In my house,: 1 jukebox , 3 paintings, 1 furnace, 1 crafting table, 1 enchanting table and 2
double chests. I also made my bed face east so i can see the sunrise when I wake up. Set the time to 23000, stand in your upper room facing east, and watch the sunrise from your new MOUNTAIN HOUSE!
