How to Make a Minecraft House





Introduction: How to Make a Minecraft House

If you wanna make a minecraft house, you've come to the right place. In this instructable I'll show you how to make a two story house in Minecraft with a balcony. This house is made out of wood since it's such an easy resource to build a house with. This is my first time making an instructable. Hope you enjoy. :D

Step 1: Materials

Notice:you can use any kind of wood you want i went with oak cause it looks slick.

1.wooden log

2wooden planks

3.wooden stairs

4.wooden fence

5.wooden slab

6.a door or glass panes

8.any other material you want to decorate your house

Step 2: Front Porch

Do a 4x7 design on each end.Then fill it in as i did

Step 3: Front Porch Finish

Put fence around leaving the bottom open.put a log in the first space as i did.

Step 4: Getting Into First Floor

We are gonna start making the wall by following the pattern in the picture.

Step 5: First Floor-floor(get It)

Put 16 blocks as i did on each side,then fill the bottom with your fence connecting it to the porch fill it in with your planks.

Step 6: Getting More Into the Walls

The walls are basically a pattern.You can use glowstone for the oak part but i like it better in oak.

Step 7: Starting the Second Floor

Basically the way you get the shape is by putting 2 blocks and destroying the bottom one and go around as shown above.Then you just fill it in.

Step 8: Half Way There :D

So now its looking good now all we need is a wall and a roof.

Step 9: Second Floor Walls

So the walls are done the pattern is pretty simple just follow the pattern up top.Like the house so far?

Step 10: The Great Balcoy

make the balcony 5 blocks tall with a log in the end.Also 4 in width. Then fill it in and put it in fence.

Step 11: Almost Done!! the Roof

The roof is basically putting down slabs and putting stairs on top,the beginning is the hard part but i know you'll get the hang of it.

Step 12: VIÕLA,you Just Made Your Own House :D

Step 13: Decorations

you now have your own house,pretty cool right. hope you enjoyed.

wht does it mean when it said Put 16 blocks as i did on each side?

Step 4 are you building the wall on the porch? Because I have built the porch and I used brick not wood but I still used wood logs and fence on the porch will that be a problem that I did not use wood?
