Hello everybody, today im going to show you some simple tips on how to build an awesome looking house in Minecraft quickly and easily! be sure to watch the video if you don't like reading, but read this anyway!

Let's get down to business

First off start with a base structure of your house, know where your going to put things to avoid future confusion in where design/things will be put

Example 1 : Window framing, if your looking for a nicely lit house be sure to put windows in correct positions, Nothing like a corner or really high up in your house.

Example 2 : Be sure to have an open plan room with good structural support (yes there are no physics) but if you want a good home it wants to look real!

Secondly, once you have your floor plan worked out work your way into more complicated parts of your structure, by complicated meaning that your going to need to be designing wall's and design.

Example 1 : Make sure you plan out what your going to incorporate into your structure, experiment what blocks fit where see what looks good! design it to your own specs!

Example 2 : Be sure to not over complicate things, keep on top of what your doing Remember : you may be also building in survival so also try to keep thing simple, but as always awesome!

Example 3 : Look at how you build, efficiency and time, Don't ever rush things to "get em done" take time and pride in your work make it your best.

Third of, again once you have completed these steps so far, your going to need to look at what your house design is going to consist of, in the video mine is on a Imperial theme, yours may be on a medieval i don't know! but what i do know is always plan your design, make it your own and NEVER copy from others be unique be CREATIVE :)

Example 1 : Experiment with different shapes and sizes, like arches and curves maybe even pillars! make it a realistic house! also, don't stick to what others do, as said previously do your own thing!

Example 2 : Make a curved roof or a different colored room! be the best you can in interior design, Manipulate the plant pot and flower features, stick to the smallest details as well as the biggest!

Finally make sure that your building is structurally sound, being that it is perfect in every way, make sure that your roof is perfect all the way down to the bottom spec of dirt. Be sure that you have used all the ways you can to manipulate curves and pillars, as always keep the realism into your house or structure. Be sure to check for any missing blocks or UN-even areas in the build, we don't want all that hard work going to waste. Also be sure to see if any improvements can be made, i can't stress this enough experiment see what looks good!

Tip: Following a simple course like this one can lead to you building greater and better things, being creative is having a wide open mind to other things, seeing things differently showing people what's really available to the creative world.

Tip: Don't let your mind limit you to what you can do! express yourself!

I hope this helped you in your quest to become a greater builder in minecraft and as always!

It might just be me but, in my personal opinion you can't teach someone to build in general, just to build a certain sytle or project. However I liked the content put into this blog post.

Only concern, you kinda want people to copy your build rather than build their own. I do not know how you can do that because it is hard but continue the series!

Helpful, would have been better if we could watch you build it block by block.
