Level 52 : Grandmaster Necromancer
Here's an alphabetical list of rooms and things you can add to your Minecraft home. I will to update this blog frequently. Don't forget to give me a Diamond and subscribe!

Green= Functional rooms

Red=Non-functional rooms

Blue= Multiplayer only

Purple= With mods only


Armory/Weaponry: A room to store all your weapons and armor.

Art museum: Build a museum to show of your paintings collection. Place some of your own art as well like statues, pixel art...


Bathroom: A room to wash yourself after a hard day of working.

Bedroom: A room to place your bed in. Sleeping in a bed resets your spawn point to the last bed you slept in. Put beds in all bases to easily transfer primary bases. Make sure your walls are 2 blocks wide or monsters will spawn in the bedroom. Building underground or in the sky will also prevent this.

Brewery: The room where you brew potions. This room needs a few brewing stands, some cauldrons and some chests with ingredients and potions.

Block museum: A museum containing every solid block in Minecraft.

Bunker: A room where you can flee to if some hostile broke into your house. Make sure you can only open and close the bunker from the inside. A bunker is made of a strong material like obsidian. Also, there must be a crafting table, a furnace, a chest with the basic items (food, tools, weapons, crafting materials...) and a bed. Place some torches to avoid monsters spawning inside.


Cactus farm: A cactus farm isn't that useful like other farms. However, cactus farms are easy to build and it's a good use for walls, mob traps or other defensive purposes.

Cat kennel: A small perk with all your cats and some chests with their food. Don't forget to make the cats sit so they don't teleport to you when you're exploring.

Crafting room: The basic room for a Minecraft house. A crafting room contains (obviously) a crafting table, at least 1 furnace and chests with the basic crafting materials. It's a good idea to make this room near you're mine, furnace room and storage rooms.

Chicken coop: A chicken coop provides a source of eggs. Off course you need chickens. Throwing eggs on the ground will have a 1/8 chance to spawn a chicken. After you have 2 chickens, it is easier to breed them with wheat.

Cobblestone generator room: A cobblestone generator provides a safe and fast way to gather cobblestone. They typically involve mixing water and lava.


Doorbell: When players want to visit you, they can push on a button to let a note block play a sound. You can make this even more sophisticated by making chimes or even a whole song that play upon entering. Pressure plates can work as well but annoying mobs can constantly walk over them.


Enchanting room: This room should have an Enchantment table and chests with your enchanted tools and weapons.

Escape tunnel: If there are hostile mobs in your house, you can easily escape with an escape tunnel. It's always better to have more then exits out of your house.


Fishing pool: A small lake of at least 2 blocks deep, 1 block wide and 7 blocks long for fishing purpose.

Furnace room: This room has more furnaces then a crafting room and some chests with all the ores you've gathered. You must certainly build this room near your mine entrance.


Garden: A garden to relax in with flowers, tree's, hedges and maybe a small pond.

Gravel-to-flint room: Once you have many stacks of gravel, it can be useful to convert most of your gravel into flints. This is just a big empty room, which you fill with gravel. Keep replacing and destroying the gravel until it drops as a flint. This room may include a chest with shovels, as well as ingredients and a crafting table for quick production of arrows or flint and steel.

Graveyard: Every time you die you make a new tombstone with a sign. The sign tells when, where and how you died.


Harbor: If you find yourself using boats in a general area often, making a dock or two is a good idea. They can help prevent your boats from drifting off into the ocean, or slamming into a wall when you exit, thus breaking the boat. Dispensers can also be placed here and filled with boats for convenience.

Herobrine altar: An underground altar made out of Nether materials to worship the Herobrine and sacrifice pigs.


Jail: Lock up all those grievers!


Library: A room with many Bookcases. It's a great use for any excess sugarcanes and it can double as an enchantment room.

Light house: A tall tower with some sort of light source on the top means that you can see your base from a long distance away. Handy if you go exploring a lot, your spawn point is a long way from your base or you have not made a bed yet.


Melon farm: A Melon farm in your base provides a valuable food source that keeps your hunger bar up.

Mine: A mine to get a source of ores and cobblestone. You can make the entrance to your mine in your furnace room or crafting room.

Minecart railway: A railway system to transfer quick to all your mines and bases.

Mob farm: The purpose of a Mob Farm is to automate and maximize the process of spawning mobs, killing them, and funneling the resulting items to a collection point.

Music room: A room filled with noteblocks or a jukebox to enjoy melodies. Some cool songs build with noteblocks in Minecraft:

Mushroom farm: A big room with flat floor. You can light your farm by torches or glowstone, placed on ceiling, to prevent mobs from appearing. Just make sure that there are no places on the floor where the light level is greater than 12 so the mushrooms can spread themselves. Alternatively, find a small cave or make one, put some mushrooms inside and completely seal it off without torches and check on it/clean it out. Also provides the drops from hostile mobs.


Nether portal room: The room where you make the portal to the Nether. Some chest with some exploring materials is always handy.


Obsidian farm: It's possible to farm obsidian on a safe way without wasting any lava:


Pumpkin farm: A pumpkin farm in your base provides a source for pumpkins which can use for Jack-O-Lanterns and to create snow golems.

PVP arena: A big arena to fight with other players in MP.


Race Circuit: Saddle your horse and race against your friends!

Redstone lab: A laboratory is a large, clear, secure area where you can safely test designs without distractions. When building large projects with complicated parts, it can save you time and effort if you test the ideas first.

Roller coaster: You can make huge roller coasters with powered rails. Some examples:


Security room: Afraid of the dark? Do you every night check if your doors are closed? Fear no more with the CCTV camera mod! Place camera's and screens to control every corner of your house.

Snow golem defences: Snow Golems throw snowballs at most hostile mobs up to 10 blocks away provoking them. This gives them an almost suicidal nature, as the thrown snowballs do not do any damage, except to Blazes and the Enderdragon. Snow Golems do not attack creepers, aggressive wolves, slimes, or magma cubes.

Spleef arena: Spleef is one of the most popular mini games in Minecraft. Typically, Spleef games take place in a arena, or elevated surface which consists of a generally large platform of blocks. The platform is usually surrounded by a building for people to spectate. The goal is to destroy blocks on the platform near or under the opponent to cause them to fall. Those who fall from the platform lose the round, and can fall into a pit, lava, or many other cruel fates designed by the stadium constructors

Storage room: When your chests in the Crafting room starts to overflow, you can make storage rooms. There are 2 types of storage rooms: item storage room for items and a block storage room for blocks.

Stable: A place where you can safely keep your horses.

Sugarcane farm: Sugar cane is the only source of sugar and paper and must be planted on a grass, dirt or sand block that is directly adjacent to water. Sugar cane can be found in almost any biome except tundra, due to the low occurrence rate of open, unfrozen water.
Swimming pool: A big pool of water to swim in.


Toilet: A small room with a toilet. You can make a secret entrance in into your treasure room.

Treasure room: A room build with high value materials like diamond blocks or gold blocks with chests filled with all your most valuable items.

Tree farm: Producing wood in your own base can eliminate a major reason for venturing in the dangerous outside. Make sure your farming room has a torch next to each sapling and has enough space upwards. A chest with axes, saplings, and spare wood can be helpful as well.


Wall: A defensive wall round your house to prevent hostile mobs coming around your house. Don't forget to make the wall higher then 4 blocks our make an overhang for spiders because they can climb four blocks high!

Watchtower: A tall tower that you can from a long distance away. Handy if you go exploring a lot, your spawn point is a long way from your base, or you have not made a bed yet.

Wheat farm: Wheat can be crafted into bread, and is a necessary ingredient for cake and cookies. So a wheat farm is quite important. For efficient farming, click the following links:

Wolf Kennel: A small perk with all your wolfs and some chests with rotten flesh from zombies, because wolves can eat them without becoming sick. don't forget to make the wolves sit so they don't teleport to you when you're exploring.

another way to get flint is to make a tall pit and put torches below. then the torches will break the blocks for you at the cost of a lower chance of flint

I like this blog but think some of theese rooms are not needed. You can have a cobblestone generator in a craftting room with furnaces and a mine.

Some of your non-functionals are, in reality, pretty functional in terms of visual-effect. :/

You don't need a fountain or a music room to survive in minecraft... But it's sometimes hard to choose par example a redstone lab, you also will survive without one. If you see something wrong, tell me.

Some things that you say are non-functional I agree with, well actually all of them. I think you can make some functional like the toilet can be to your secret treasure room (actually that is one I have to argue with, especially on SMP- you can keep stuff from greifers. Also your pond in your nice little garden can be the exit out of your escape tunnel with a trapdoor in it or something. Just some ideas on how the items can be necessities of minecraft.

Btw, great texture pack with black snow and blood. Maybe you can call it horror craft and make a darker minecraft with scary mobs...

I only aimed it to just be blood rain and black snow, not much else. But I will think about the Scary Mobs part.
