Cool Minecraft Buildings

What you’ll need

  • 110 chiseled or cracked sandstone
  • 18 sand
  • 100 smooth stone
  • 15 glass
  • 1 door

Step 1: lay out a modified 9×9 square of chiseled sandstone. It’s a plain square but for one block left open in the front center, and a couple two-block extensions coming out two blocks from the center opening.

Step 2: Create L shapes out of sand on top of the front projections. Add more sand blocks on top of the first layer, leaving central blocks open for windows.

Step 4: build another layer, just like in the last step, but use sand for this one. This is the building’s fourth layer

Step 5: Add a single block in the opening to finish the arch

Step 6: create a 10×10 square of smooth stone above and outside the top sand layer, so that the stone and sand are connected diagonally. Make a smaller section that protrudes out from that.

Step 7: Create another square of sandstone above the stone layer, and one block within it. It should be in vertical alignment with the last sand layer. Also add some sandstone above the gap in the smaller stone square sticking out in the front.

Step 10: fill in the hole in the roof with glass. Place torches on the roof and inside to prevent monsters spawning.
