Tsuri-dōrō - The Domicile Lantern

Hello! This is my second (or last) part of my christmas series, and I have been wanting to make something like this for a long time. Overall, this took the most time for a house build - more than a week - which included terraforming the mountain, making the Bonsai tree and furnishing the whole house. Also, recently I discovered that the Torii Gate I framed over the house was supposed to lead to a Shinto shrine, which I built inside instead for admiration and sincerity for the followers of Shinto. Have fun! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year 2015!
EXTRA: Starting now and next year, a Chunk view of every house will be made as an important picture behind the PostCard View. (Example below Features)

FUN FACT: Every stained glass in Minecraft 1.7+ has a common bug to light up just like a glowstone block. This is caused always when the chunks with stained glass are edited with software such as MCEdit. I took advantage of this bug to make the house appear like a hanging lantern, hence the Japanese term tsuri-dōrō or kaitomoshi. When updated by nearby actual light-emitting objects like torches or glowstone, the bug is fixed and the glass stops glowing. I've continuously updated the chunk with MCEdit to keep the glass glowing.

   The screenshots include:       
GLSL Shaders Mod, compatible with Minecraft Forge 1.7+

Noice work, the leafs look a bit crumy, if you're using WorldEdit I recommend using /br sphere 25%18:12,75%0 [size] and with a /mask 0. This gives a more tree look if you catch my drift

I do, and I appreciate the texture percentage feature it has, although I prefer Voxelsniper alot more for brushing. I'm having a bit of a rant that either they removed Craftbukkit so I cant get Voxelsniper anymore, or Voxelsniper isn't converted into an individual mod
