The Room That Echoed.

(warning: long story)

I never really appreciated just how much like a storybook castle my great aunt’s house was.
Four stories tall, with two spires and three attics, it was a monstrous edifice of pocked stone, time-darkened wood and yellowed glass. I spent so much time there in the holidays as a child – especially over Christmas – that it became a secondary home.
And when a place becomes so familiar that it seems like home, it no longer seems so special or unique. It’s just alwaysthere; occupying the same frame of reference as an old coat, a favourite teddy bear or a well-worn book from your personal library.

Minecraft Full Building Tutorial : Simple Starter House I

description: this is a simple starter house to build quickly and with little resources for starting a new game, or adventuring out and needing somewhere to stay for the night. Keep reading to see a full list of materials needed for this project, and step by step illustrated directions. This tutorial is basically a text make up of a youtube video tutorial that currently already exists. I simply arranged it into an easy and quickly digestible format where it is not required to continuously pause, rewind, and glance between screens. I give credit where it is due and i hope that you can find some use from this! Click the url link below to access the original tutorial on youtube, or click the creator link to view his personal website or channel on youtube.

— this list simply shows the minimum required supplies for this project. It could be spot on, or a little extra for rounding purposes- point is, don’t take it too seriously. If you get this base number of supplies you should be good to follow through this tutorial, if you’re the kind of survivalist that likes to get their hard-earned materials together before starting a project instead of being forced to run about and retrieve the missing components during a build, then i have you covered. Be creative! This is all merely a guideline —

Essentials: 

30 spruce wood logs

25 spruce wood planks

40 Spruce wood slabs

15 oak wood planks

55 spruce wood stairs

15 cobblestone

Full project: 

20 gravel (for path)

15 wood fence

1 wood fence gate

10 bush

Grass, flowers, cactuses, (lawn decoration and texturing) 

Furniture:

Windows- 5 glass 

Light - some torches

Table - 1 fence post, 1 pressure plate

Chairs - 2 oak wood stairs, 2 item frames

Outdoor Seating - 2 spruce wood logs, 1 oak wood stairs, 6 rails

Daylight Sensor Outdoor lighting - spruce wood log, glow stone, wood slab, torch, red stone dust, light sensor

 

Recommended Items: 

2 beds

4 chests

1 wood door 

5 trap doors (for shelves) – where shelves do not work, use signs – 

Tools:

2 Furnaces 

1 Crafting table

T U T O R I A L 

  1. Place 4 spruce logs, inner circle up- jump 3 blocks between the sides and 5 between the front and back. Face a side a total of 7 blocks long for the front face.
  2. Fill the lines between the 4 logs with cobble stones to create a 5x7 border. Your box should have log corners and cobblestone sides. 
  3. Look at the front face of the house (established in step 1), and count four blocks in from the left corner log to the right, on the fourth block. cobblestone, mine it away, leaving a blank space, and one cobblestone and one log to the right. This will leave space for the door. 
  4. Fill the space in the middle with oak wood planks. This is the floor 
  5. Bring the corner spruce logs up by two making them a total of 3 blocks tall. 

  6. Place spruce wood planks in a “place one, jump one pattern.” The 7 block long wall should have three wood planks, two directly next to the corner logs, and one between those in the middle, 
  7. Fill the spaces between the wood planks with spruce wood stairs facing outward, skipping the space reserved for the door, Your structure should now be 2 blocks tall with 3 block tall pillars in each of the four corners,
  8. Stack wood planks on top of the already placed “place one, jump one pattern” blocks. Basically cover the entire top layer of oak wood blocks, (make sure to exclude the corner logs and stair blocks.)

  9. Stack two spruce wood planks on the 5 block long sides on top of the already placed spruce wood planks, excluding the middle block of the three which contains a stair block. Between the two now 3 block tall spruce wood plank pillars, place an upside down stair to create an arch, or just a normal plank if you can’t do upside down stairs. 

  10. Place outward facing stairs from log corner to log corner on the front and back face (the 7 block long sides,) and with a one block stair overlap to begin the formation of the room. Lay down another two lines of stairs one block up and one block in toward the middle of the roof to create a triangular formation. Lay down spruce wood planks on top of the gap between the two sides of stairs (one on each side= total of 2). Use spruce wood slabs to cover the gap line between the two lines of stairs to close the roof.

  11. Use wood slabs to form a porch by laying one down off each block on the front face of the house. It should directly border the front face from log corner to log corner.
  12. Place stairs coming off the spruce slab that extends from the doorway, and lay down one spruce wood plank on either side of the stairs. 

  13. Lay down upside down stairs extending off the wood slabs that form the porch directly left from the entrance stairs, then place a spruce wood plank at the end. Extend two more upside down spruce stairs from the spruce wood plank to curve alongside the left wall of the house. 

  14. Place one upside down stair block directly to the right of the entrance stairs and it’s adjoining spruce plank, lay down another spruce plank after it, and fill the empty space between it and the corner log with stairs facing outward. Lay down another stair facing the down the right side of the house
  15. Lay down spruce wood slabs extending 2 deep off the roof line to create a covered porch.
  16. Lay down fence post on the outer wood planks, stacking them two tall in appropriate locations such as the end block on the left side of the house, the corners, and the end blocks by the stairway entrance, Basically just use your best judgement to testify accents to the house or refer to the picture or video linked at the top. Attach a gate at the stairs if you would like extra protection
  17. Around the right side of the house, lay down wood slabs to lead down it’s length. stack 3 spruce wood logs beside the last wood slab that lines the right side of the house. Mine away the floor bordering the slabs and place spruce logs inner circle up in the spaces, lay down a line on the entire log floor border with 2 blocks tall of bush. Make sure there’s no blocks directly lining your bushes or any other part of your house for that matter. Don’t necessarily clear it out, but leave a one block border between the world and your home to prevent creepers and things from crawling up and somehow getting in!
  18. Fill the remaining holes in the walls with glass windows. The holes should be in between the oak blocks of each wall. 
  19. Place torches anywhere but preferably at eye level or so, so 2 blocks up from the ground maybe. It looks good and is efficient to place them on either sides of the windows.
  20. On one end of the building, mine away the floor block in the middle between the two floor planks, and place a crafting table. Place a fence post on top of that, and a pressure pad on top of that; add stairs on either sides to represent chairs, you can add item frames on them to make them appear more like chairs if you’d like, though it is optional. 
  21. Attach furnaces to either sides of the walls above the chairs, leaving a space between them. 
  22. Fill the ceiling in with a line of logs to add detail, make sure the bark is facing down when you place it. Or whatever- but make sure it’s all the same. I guess. Whatever you do will look interesting! 
  23. Place trap doors above the stair-chairs and flip them up if they aren’t already, putting the furnaces on “shelves.” 

  24. Place beds on each side of the walls on the opposite side of the chairs, mine out the area underneath and between, placing double chests beneath each, and a floor between the two; this creates a “sunken bedroom,” or “compact living,” as it’s original creator, Keralis [add link] mentioned. Add torches on either sides of the walls and pressure plates for the shelf space. 

  25. Place a door, (it looks better if you place it while facing it inside the house). Make sure there is a fair area of level ground around your front door, to make it easy to get in and out of. If you’re near water, place dirt blocks in front of the door, or wood planks and craft a dock!

Create a sitting area in front, one block in front of one block to the left of the stair entry way when facing it by placing two spruce logs with the inner swirls facing inward (you’ll have to put down dirt blocks to attach them to first and then destroy them,) and a single stair block facing outward; run rail blocks along the top of the logs and one block in front and back of the log on both the left and right side of the front facing stair. (woohoo stair chairs) 

Make a daylight sensor porch light: 

  1. Mine out the dirt, sand, cobblestone, whatever matter is in your front lawn, in a line from the direct entrance of your house and leading the entrance of the chair. (remember, you don’t have to add the corner blocks when making turns in paths and walls- it adds texture if you leave them out!) continue this path to whatever main road or other building or mine is nearby, if you’d like. 
  2. Place a log in the lawn one block in front of one block directly to the right of the stair entry way. Top with a glow block and wood panel to light the area, –to create a daylight sensor light: dig a space under the glow stone and place a torch, then run red stone dust in a line 2 blocks under the surface. After you’ve laid the dust down, cover the space above with dirt or whatever matter is around to even it to ground level, and place a daylight sensor at the end of the red stone dust line, leaving a hole in the cover so the sunlight can reach it and toggle the light on and off for night and day. Cover the open area in the front with grass, cactus, trees, flowers, sand dunes, or whatever to garnish the area around it with natural growth. You can also put your garden in front or beside your house. Add torches and whatever else to the outside. :)
