      Not really, a house is a building with someone living in it, so technically its not a house if you get a furnace and a crafting table

    This is what's great about Grian. He doesn't give a block by block tutorial. He teaches you how to build. Inspires you to go on and build your own creations. Shows you methods to use, not builds to duplicate. Exactly what we need to learn.

      I've watched a lot of BbB tutorials, and while they're good, and I like the things I produce (most recently a lake in my world I want to fill with small ships), I feel like I only learn one or two quite specific things.
      Like, "oh, that trapdoor looks good, there," or "ah, I can use this framing!"
      They're good to know, but it's inefficient. I learn _that_ a thing looks good, not _why_ it does. The latter lets you generate your own solutions to problems, as opposed to relying on pre-generated solutions- Grian shows us _a_ solution to making good overhangs, while getting you to find _your_ solution to overhangs.
      No two Minecraft worlds are alike, and thus knowledge how is more important than knowledge that.

      I like building with dirt, it can be mined my hand and if you build correctly you can grow grass on each floor and have green carpeting and balcony's with green on them, then throw in vines and 2 thick floors with 1 block of water and you have a vine and whatever you want farm and house all in one, use sand to make walls around the house so if a creeper blows them up, the wall will close the hole automatically. My house is usually symmetrical and square on purpose as it makes setting up red stone circuits easier. :)

    When I make the roof, sometimes I put stairs all-around the top in a pyramid pattern. I also clear out the excess blocks in the ceiling for space. Is that ok?

      Personally, I would say no, as you don't quite get the right border with that style. I would just do the classic roof, a plus- shaped roof (peaks on all four sides), or if you're up to the challenge (not to be insulting), you could try one of those "deflated cone" roofs that you commonly see on fantasy towers. Was this helpful?

    The "defying the laws of physics" thing is a thing in modern architecture. It's called a "cantilever" where the frame extends into the building and the weight of the rest of the building keeps it in place. But yes, a cantilever that big does look odd.

      Aiden Joubert this is more to follow some "design rules" that look better than a simple box, but if you like it well then there you go

      There is no rules to Minecraft but when designing a house there's always been rules for that

    Here’s my process:
    Step 1: Acquire map of spawn.
    Step 2: Raze block within map chunk above river/sea level.
    Step 3: Place torch in NW corner and place torches in a 5x5 pattern across chunk.
    Step 4: Create dirt path along perimeter and through the middle, separating the 4 quadrants.
    Step 5: Place foundation in the crossroads in a 9x9.
    Here’s my problem:
    I want my house to be omni-symmetrical. I want the shape to be the same shape from the 4 corners.
    I’m willing to unbox the 9x9 in the 4 directions and rounding the corners.
    But when I start to build up, I find issues.
    My base pallet is Stone brick 🧱 and the 3 polished stones (1 for each direction).
    Can you help me?
    It’s turning into a 3-story tower.
    My warehouse will be in the basement, bed on the 2nd floor, and enchanting in the 3rd. Maybe the 1st will be a workshop?

    Tip: if your just starting fresh on minecraft and started you need to get a lot of wood so you can build a four block wall and then fill in the open space with the rest and you have a easy house.

      well, I'm not sure about that. personally, I've found that digging a hole into the side of a mountain can work out quite well. especially if you detail the outside with a overhang.

    There is a downside to straying away from the rectangular shaped house, if you go crazy with the shape of the house, it'll end up looking like more of a mess than anything that's more pleasing and fictional

    The thing I struggle with the most are circular roofs for example I want to build a cool wizard tower with a circular roof and I mostly fail.... I try to make it taller with some normal sized blocks but then it feels too tall and then I panic I don't know what to do and then I just ,,go for a break" and by that I mean never finishing it and move to a new build................... and I also don't know how to decorate big house walls.....................

    Exqueeze me, but that 5x5 house in the thumbnail is one of the most basic and easiest houses. It is so cute, cozy, and efficient because you need less materials, especially when you do survival. It is my fave house! Come on man!
