The Top 20 Things You Need to Build in "Minecraft"

Paul loves playing video games; especially when it comes to Minecraft!

My Minecraft Build Ideas

Welcome to my list of 20 Minecraft builds which will improve and revitalize your world and add a whole new dimension of creativity to your world. If you want to build ideas, then you've come to the right place. Here you'll find some great plans and tutorials to create some awesome builds in Minecraft.

1. Auto Smelter

An auto smelter will let you automatically smelt items in your world without having to worry about placing items in all your furnaces! The image to the right shows you exactly how to construct them and where to put your input materials as well as where you'll receive items out of the furnace after they have been smelted!

2. Pirate Ship

A pirate ship is one of the most impressive builds that you can have in your world! A large ship shows your prowess as a builder and shows your technical ability to build large-scale projects! This image shows you layer by layer how to build your ship which will dominate your seas! Building these with lighter wood and using a darker wood where the ship meets the water gives a very detailed effect which will make your design look a lot better! And why not add some vines or a mossy stone near the base of your ship to give a worn-down effect!

3. Bridges

Making bridges in Minecraft is almost essential unless your home biome is a desert or plains biome. Traversing waterways is always useful so why not do it in style! A simple stone bridge or a more complex wooden archaic bridge gives a lot of character to your town or base and shows that you can build functionality as well as just flashy builds! This simple stone slab bridge is simple and effective and fits in well with the pathway which leads out from either side!

4. Bunk Bed

A bunk bed is usually one of the first advanced builds a player will make in their world. Every player has experimented with it at some stage, and this design is just one of the hundreds which exist! Let your imagination run free and build one of the greatest bunkbeds Minecraft has ever seen! Be creative when creating your new designs and a bunk bed will add so much character to a bedroom!

5. Dam

Large or small dams give an attractive feature of the landscape or can be used to bridge the gap between different heights of water! This dam shown is a large attractive dam that catches the player's eye and shows your ability as an advanced builder.

6. Wooden Dojo

Oh yes! A large traditional wooden dojo! In the early days of Minecraft, these were commonly made of wood, but the addition of prismarine blocks, as well as all the new concrete colored blocks, gives us designers a lot of room to play around with color and design. These can be made short or tall and add an impressive centre point to towns or settlements. Make sure it fits the theme of your base however as a large oriental dojo in the middle of a modern town usually doesn't look so good!

7. Ferris Wheel

Talking of impressive colourful builds, take a look at the colourful, creative Ferris wheel shown to the right! If you want to make a circus, then a Ferris wheel is a must-have. These large-scale creative designs give an amazing insight into your skill as a builder. Usually, these are made of wood but why not get creative and build with netherrack or try iron bars. You can make your Ferris wheel as big or small as you like. Make sure you use a circle generator to get an accurately sized wheel before you make a Ferris oval!

8. Garden

Making a garden in Minecraft is essential for any creative builder or designer. Mojang gives us so many options regarding greenery and shrubbery, leaves, grass, flowers, dandelions, trees and more allows us to build massively detailed garden scapes that turn a normal house into an impressive mansion. When building gardens why not try making organized arrangements of greenery or make a "messier" display to give a more overgrown look! Leaves and vines can give everything a worn-down look.

9. Tree

Making a large custom tree in your world can give a massive boost to the awesomeness of your world. The basic tutorial for building massive custom trees is shown to the right, but the most important thing is to be creative in your work and try to make everything flow naturally as you build.

Think about what actual trees look like and draw inspiration from what you know to help make more impressive builds. Custom trees often require large amounts of wood and leaves. Try using different types of leaves to give more depth in different areas of the tree and maybe use darker wood for the roots or to make grooves in the tree. Hiding glowstone inside the leaves can give a cool glowing effect and keep it lit up for some more shading!

10. Cars

Any town in Minecraft cannot be finished without some cars running around. This small golf cart shows some basic tips for building vehicles and the truck way down below in the list also shows some more detailed ways to add character to your vehicle creations! There are loads of tutorials on how to build cars in Minecraft as well as building trucks, bikes, helicopters, and planes. Why not create something yourself such as a digger or mining drone!

11. Hotel

Which Minecraft player has never attempted to make a hotel? Every large city needs a hotel, and this one comes with a rooftop garden for a quiet break. Making hotels can be monotonous if you build all the floors at once and then fill them in, so why not try building one layer and then creating the rooms on each floor? Make sure to include a kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, spa, swimming pool, and gym to make your hotel really luxurious!

12. Sea Town

Holy cow. Look at this sea town created on this completely man-made island. Builds like this make Minecraft fun to play and it shows the creativity of the player base. This island is actually inhabited by villagers in the original world, and you can just imagine the hustle and bustle of hundreds of villagers running around the narrow streets and up the stairs. The inside of this island connects all of the building too with a series of underground passages and tunnels!

13. Pixel Art

Pixel art in Minecraft is a creative players biggest dream! Making detailed pictures based on real-life gives a very artistic feel to your world. The templates to the sideshow some very basic pixel art mob faces, which can be used on their own or incorporated into a build to give more character to your world.

14. Pyramid

Ah, the pyramid, one of everyone's first builds in their Minecraft world. How to build a pyramid needs no guide, but how to decorate the inside is a different story. Why not create an authentic Egyptian burial site or a tomb. Alternatively, you could create a modern base hideout or construct a huge underground network of tunnels which form the majority of your base!

15. Stone Statues

These simple stone statues are one of my personal favourite builds purely because of the simplicity yet detail in them. They have so much character, and if you want to know how to build good statues in Minecraft, this is a great place to start!

16. Watchtower

This medium height watchtower gives a good detail in any town or settlement in your Minecraft world. Placed around the outside of a base with walls in between can transform your base into a more secure settlement and help protect against mobs or other players! Why not try varying the design and use iron and white glass to give a more futuristic-looking tower. Try making some medieval siege weapons and placing them on the top to make your base look super secure!

17. Truck

This truck is one of the most detailed builds I have ever seen. The attention to detail makes this also one of my favourites. As I said before vehicles are one of the most important builds, but so many people avoid them because they think that they're difficult! I hope the two vehicles in this list will show you how to create and decorate cars, trucks and more and will give you the confidence to try new things and believe in your building ability!

18. TV

I remember when I first built a TV in Minecraft. I thought it was amazing. This design is a basic one and there are much much more complex and cool designs. One YouTuber even made a working one! See for yourself below! One tip I found useful is to use levers on the top of your TV to make it look like antennae.

19. Underwater Base

Just look at how epic this underwater base is! The time and effort that goes into clearing out water to make massive structures like this are just phenomenal. Try using sponges to clear water out. Note that these have interesting mechanics so be careful when using them! Underwater bases give an epic feel to your building ability and seeing huge glass walls with an ocean trapped behind is an amazing feeling for your Minecraft world!

20. Windmill

Building a windmill is a difficult task. Copying the work of others is easy but creating your own windmill is a difficult task. It is however extremely rewarding to see such a beautiful build come to light as you advance on it. Creating something like this requires extreme attention to detail, but unfortunately, you won't be able to make it spin . . . That is, unless you use command blocks as this YouTuber did.

1. Know the different biomes. Depending on your original spawn point and preferences, you can build your base practically anywhere you want, as long as it’s viable. Time and time again, players have proved they can live in any setting they please, whether player-made or natural. From the bottom of the ocean to a complicated lava maze, as long as you are prepared and know your area, you can make your own base to your own preference. The next few steps are a guide of some of the major types of biomes, but not a full list. The biomes listed here are the ones with major defining features and most feasibly habitable, and biome types like river and beach variations and the ocean are excluded due to redundancy and lack of variability.
2. Check out the dry biomes. This biome type has little to no grass, and whatever vegetation grows in the area is dry and brittle-looking. Savannahs are the most lush of the dry biome types, having more water and actual vegetation. It is characterized by the yellowing grass, the vast, open plains made predominantly of dirt blocks, and Acacia trees. This is one of the biome types that can spawn Villages upon world generation and one of the only two biomes that spawn Horses naturally. Deserts are the most well-known of the dry biomes and is nothing but sand with some pockets of water, cacti, and dried bushes scattered here and there. This is another biome type that can spawn Villages. Digging under the sand for a few blocks will yield the player some Sandstone. You can also make Sandstone by placing Sand on a 2x2 block formation on your crafting menus. Mesas are the rarest of the dry biome types. It’s made completely out of Hardened Clay, Stained Hardened Clay, Red Sand, and Red Sandstone b
3. Consider cold biomes. Cold biomes are generally known for their blueish grass, the presence of Spruce trees, and the appearance of snow if you go up to a certain height. Extreme Hills are basically as they are named. This biome is full of steep drops, valleys, ridiculous overhangs, caves, ravines, waterfalls, and random lava flows. If you want a spectacular view, this biome delivers. Taigas are basically areas populated by Spruce trees, ferns, and Wolves. There’s a more diverse variation of this biome called the Mega Taiga, which has generally larger and thicker Spruce trees, Podzol replacing the usual grass, Coarse Dirt, and Mushrooms scattered here and there. Podzol is a type of dirt that lets you plant Mushrooms even in higher levels. You can’t transplant Podzol to other areas without breaking the dirt under it unless you use a tool called Silk Touch. Podzol also won’t spread to other nearby dirt blocks, unlike Mycelium. Coarse Dirt is just dirt without grass covering it. Grass won’
4. Consider snowy biomes. Obviously, snowy biomes are perpetually covered in snow. There's not a lot of variation to them, unlike the other biome types, but the abundance of snow and ice makes it pretty picturesque and useful. Do note that snow falls and covers the ground regularly, and water freezes in this biome quickly, though you can thaw it all out with a torch or any kind of light source nearby. The Ice Plains biome is hilly and has nothing but snow, ice, and the occasional lava pit. If you want a nice snowy flatland with a view, this biome is for you! There is a very rare variation of this biome called the Ice Plains Spikes, with gigantic ice stalagmites made from a unique block called Packed Ice. This block, unlike regular Ice blocks, doesn’t melt if you place a torch near it. But much like Ice blocks, you can’t gather this block without the Silk Touch tool. If you’re lucky enough to come across this biome, you can get a very uncommon and striking material to build with! The other

Not sure if you would like us sharing this again because now that I revisited the post looks like the schematic files and video tutorial has gone lost on the mysterious internet world.

Are you a football fan? If you haven’t build an stadium then this one is a must. The one we are sharing is a Nike Stadium but they did not pay us to advertise them so you can build any stadium haha

100. Tennis court

Following the sports theme, what about tennis court? This one won’t take as much space as the basketball one or the football stadium but it will look as nice,

101. Pagoda

If we mentioned churches a few times is it just fare to also mention pagodas. Not sure if you are religious or what religion you follow but something we can deny as builders – Minecraft builders – is that they are pretty easy on the eye. So make sure you add a few.

102. Submarine

Another great idea to add if you are working on any sort of big water section could be to add a submarine.

103. Viking Castle

There are plenty of castle ideas, we just wanted to mention one more, this Viking castle.

104. Pirate Ship

Again if you are trying to get some ideas to builds for water then a pirate ship could be a great addition to it. Not sure how it will look next to the submarine but you can try to put them together and see if you like it.

105. Empire State Building

The Empire State Building is one of the most emblematic buildings in New York and having it in your Minecraft city will make it look great.

15 Minecraft Survival-Friendly Builds To Try

Starting a new adventure in Minecraft comes with some uncertainties. Will you like the world's seed? Should you build away or near the spawn area? Where is the best place to build a base? Whatever the case, you will need to make many decisions as you work to build your base.

When you are first starting out you will not have much at your disposal. Everyone loves a high-end wizard tower made with rare materials that would take you hours on end to gather, but you can actually come up with some neat starters (and other catchy constructions) using only the essentials.

RELATED: Minecraft: Fastest Way To Level Up (& 14 Other Easy Ways)

Updated on June 16, 2021 by Anastasia Maillot: Fans are returning to Minecraft now thanks to the recent 1.17 update, which is the first half of the much-anticipated Caves and Cliffs update. With new blocks and mobs to discover, starting a new survival world now is pretty much the perfect thing to do.

However, deciding what to build can be tricky with limited resources and capacities in survival mode. There are mobs, hunger, and fall damage to worry about while in survival, and making scaffolding can be hard if there's no bamboo available. Even so, there are a few simple builds that can be made easily even with the challenges of survival gameplay.

15 The Modern House

Most Minecraft players tend to go for traditional wooden homes and medieval builds. However, sometimes having something more modern and unique can be a fresh breath of air. Getting concrete and wool early on in survival isn't that difficult, since sheep, sand, gravel, and dyes of nearly every color are simple enough to get.

WiederDude has a really nice modern build to share for anyone interested in making a more contemporary-style starter house. It's easy to build and doesn't require you to build very high or use a ton of materials.

14 A Barn

Houses aside, getting a good source of food early on is vital in survival. Initially, you'll probably just want a nice little fenced-off area for your cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs, but it's always nice to make things prettier. Plus, it doesn't take a lot of work to build a simple wooden barn for the animals.

RELATED: Minecraft: All Of The Animals, Ranked

This barn design by Folli uses mostly wood, which is probably the easiest material to get early on in the game. There's an indoor and outside area for the animals as well, and you can tweak the size of it easily depending on how much space you need for your livestock.

13 The Mountain House

Who says you have to build on solid land or on top of a mountain? Cool builds can also be possible if you build within a generic mountain wall that on the outside might not seem like much. However, considering how common mountain biomes are, this mountain house design by SheepGG will come in handy for many starting builders.

The good thing about this design is that you don't need to build roofs. You can just carve out the space needed for the home and not worry about the walls or ceilings. Most of it is made with wood, so the resources are cheap and easy to get. It's also one of the safest homes to build and live in.

12 Storage Building

A major issue with many starter home designs is that they're quite small and lack space. As you progress in your survival journey, you'll accumulate a lot of resources and loot. It can be very tough to accommodate all of that inside a simple starter home with extremely limited chest space.

Building a separate storage building is a great idea while you gather resources for a bigger home. There's a nice, aesthetically pleasing design made by Folli that will cover most of your storage needs towards mid-game, and it mostly uses wood to build as well, making it cheap to set up.

11 Underwater Starter Base

In case you're looking for something much more ambitious but still beginner-friendly, why not try and build a home underwater? With the aquatic update in particular, underwater living has become a popular choice due to gorgeous coral biomes and tropical fish. Plus, underwater living doesn't always need a ton of glass or a conduit to work.

RELATED: Minecraft: Small Mods To Improve Visual Content

Folli's underwater home uses mostly wood, so as long as you have a good supply of both oak and spruce wood, this build is doable. It even has an enchanting room in the basement, which can be upgraded to a level 30 enchanting space.

10 The Simple Survival House

This lovely wooden house is fairly simple to build, since it will mainly require whatever wood you like and stone — both are easy to come by. This original design by Youtube user Zaypixel is extraordinary, and it looks better than most other builds you could come across.

The full video detailing the step by step process to follow can be found here. If you happen to spawn in a desert or a snowy tundra, it might be best to move to a forest or try a different build.

9 Forest Bridge

Another wonderful creation by Zaypixel is this small bridge, which requires stone, wood, and a small quantity of iron if you like lanterns better than torches. The floor for this construction is especially good-looking since it's made from unlit campfires — a surprising way to make a unique wooden pattern.

This bridge fits perfectly between two riverbanks in biomes that have plenty of trees (that also facilitate the wood gathering process). If you gather the listed materials beforehand, building this should only take about 10 minutes.

8 Redstone Farm

The best way to get a nice and steady supply of food in Minecraft is to setup a farm near your base. Players have come up with insanely creative ways to do this, making the most intricate builds that exploit the properties of Redstone.

RELATED: Minecraft: Things You Didn't Know About Striders

Sometimes, these projects can be time consuming and hard to approach. Luckily, Zaypixelmade a video showcasing how you can achieve awesome results with very little Redstone and time. The best thing about this build is that it will allow you to quickly collect all your crops.

7 Quick And Easy Desert Home

If you do find yourself in a vast desert with relatively little resources to spare, you can actually make the most of the sand around you. YouTube user Meg Rae showcases exactly what you need to achieve this design, which is surprisingly fast to complete, even in hardcore survival.

Her tutorial is clear and super easy to follow, so you shouldn't get stuck wondering what kind of blocks to use or where to place them. Do bring some wood from a forest with you, if you want to achieve the same result.

6 Fast Winter Cabin

It's hard to come by something so simple and yet so natural. This build by YouTube user FenX Builds is both affordable and quick. The overall aesthetic is very much in tune with the surrounding spruce forest. If you end up wanting to build a bigger home in another biome, you can always come back to this one and use it as a hunting hut.

Like most YouTube Minecraft guides, this one is easy to follow. The best thing about this build is its versatility: you could achieve it almost anywhere without needing super rare blocks.

5 Overhaul Your Outdoor Area

Building the perfect base is a daunting enough task that often takes days and days of work in survival worlds. When you are finally looking at your finished creation, you might start to think the surroundings look a little barren compared to the very detailed build you just completed.

RELATED: Minecraft: How To Conquer A Bastion Remnant

Youtube user Typface shows how you can bring to life your yard, garden, or simply the outside of your house in this video. This guide is admittedly long, but it showcases a variety of smaller projects you can tackle individually, at your own pace.

4 Make Your Sleeping Look Cool

One thing every player undoubtedly needs to craft is a bed. Sure, you could settle with a plain white one and call it a day, but if you are looking to spice up your home décor or your furniture, then check this video made by Typface.

Did you know you could achieve some incredibly faithful bunk beds using barrels and trapdoors? Typface gets creative with interesting combinations of blocks that are easy to come by in survival mode. Minecraft is literally built on little known facts and mechanics that are incredibly fun to explore, and Typface's video explores some building possibilities that are unbelievably easy to achieve.

3 Immersive Horse Stable

After some time spent in your world, you will most likely come across a horse you want to befriend to make travelling faster and easier. You might want to give your trusty steed a proper stable to stay in, to keep it safe from mobs. According to this quick video guide by Typface, you only need some hay and wood to get away with a fantastic result.

RELATED: Minecraft: Best Data Packs

Honestly, if you have about five minutes to spare while you play, and don't have a stable yet, this is one of the best options in terms of time investment and resource spending.

2 Add A Fountain To Your Town (Or Garden)

It's hard to come by things that don't make sense in Minecraft. This water fountain design makes a whole lot of it. Originally designed by YouTube user Minecraft Sekai, and showcased in this video, this beautiful water fountain fits perfectly within most settlement-oriented builds, especially large scale towns.

Since build projects of this stance can prove exhaustingly long, building something completely out of stone and water is a nice change of pace from having to gather many different types of resources.

1 Secret Storage Basement

One of the best things to build in Minecraft is your own secret hideout to use as storage for your most treasured belongings. This does require some level of skill and particular materials, however. As you progress through survival, you will be able to craft more expensive block types that can supplement your base.

A great way to spend your valuable resources is on this survival basement (with a secret passage) designed by Zaypixel. This project is fairly extensive, though by no means impossible to achieve. You can lay the foundations for it and come up with your own decorations for it.

A screenshot of a Minecraft volcano build.

Minecraft Volcano build

What better way to make an impression on your Minecraft server than to find an unassuming island in the middle of nowhere and turn it into a scene-stealing volcano dripping with magma? If you find the right mountain then much of the landscaping work will already be done for you - but if you want to create one from scratch, you can do that too! That's exactly how YouTuber "Shannooty" created the above volcano build, after all.

A screenshot of a Minecraft castle build.

Minecraft Castle build

For architects who want to think big with their next building project, let this magnificent gothic castle build by YouTuber "Geet Builds" inspire you to embrace your inner medievalist. A big, bold, rustic castle is a builder's dream, with endless design opportunities in the battlements, the windows, the archways, and more.

A screenshot of a Minecraft skyscraper build.

Minecraft Modern Skyscraper build

Creating a modern-looking build in Minecraft is always an interesting challenge, as it forces you to think hard about the types of blocks you need to use. For those looking for the ultimate challenge, why not create a realistic modern skyscraper like those above, created by YouTuber "Alpine". Just make sure you get planning permission from others living nearby!

A screenshot of a Minecraft floating base build.

Minecraft Floating Base build

Floating bases aren't exactly a new concept in Minecraft, but they've stood the test of time because they're just so versatile. You can make a cute little floating island with a cottage like YouTuber "Rake" made (pictured above), or you can hop into Creative Mode and use mods like WorldEdit to create colossal floating mountain bases if you like (more on mountain bases below!).

A screenshot of a Minecraft bridge build.

Minecraft Bridge build

Ah, the bridge. Delightfully practical, but also a chance to create something truly beautiful. Like many other builds in this list, you can be as simple or as ostentatious as you like. If you don't want to get bogged down with a huge building project, a bridge might be a perfect mini-project for your latest world. The above bridge, by YouTuber "Zaypixel", can be completed in just a handful of minutes.

A screenshot of a Minecraft ship build.

Minecraft Ship build

There's nothing quite as eye-catching in Minecraft as a magnificent ship on the horizon. The above ship was created by YouTuber "IrieGenie", and gives off some strong Pirates of the Caribbean vibes. And they didn't even resort to black sails! But you could with your ship, of course. It'd look incredible with the realistic water you get by installing one of the best Minecraft shaders, too.

A screenshot of a Minecraft lighthouse build.

Minecraft Lighthouse build

If you're looking for a similarly nautical build, there's a lot you can do with a nice tall lighthouse. The actual real-life function of a lighthouse is to be a landmark, so it's the perfect opportunity to put your own unique style into a build. Just as long as it shines at the top, you can do what you like. If you need some inspiration, check out YouTuber "Meddi"'s video on creating the above lighthouse.

Note: if you want to inject some more life into your latest Bedrock world, why not check out our guides on the best Minecraft Bedrock seeds and the best Minecraft Bedrock Texture Packs?

A screenshot of a Minecraft cathedral build.

Minecraft Cathedral build

Depending on who you ask, a cathedral can be even more grand and opulent than a medieval castle. A cathedral is a huge block of architectural splendour which gives you so many opportunities for interesting designs, patterns, and block choices. The above cathedral was built by YouTuber "Lanwan Builds", and it's a recreation of Winchester Cathedral, a building I've walked around many times and been inside once or twice as well. It's an incredible building, and such a build in Minecraft will be worthy of the blood, sweat, tears, and Diamonds you put into it.

A screenshot of a Minecraftmuseum build.

Minecraft Museum build

What better way to show off everything you've collected over the course of your Minecraft journey than to store it in a museum? Much like castles and cathedrals, the grandest museums are tourist attractions in the real world, and so they're bound to attract attention on your Minecraft server. You can check out the interior of the above museum build by watching this video by its architect, YouTuber "MegRae".

A screenshot of a Minecraft statue build.

Minecraft Statue build

Minecraft's default blocks offer so many different types of stone that you don't even have to use any of the best Minecraft texture packs to create a truly phenomenal statue. Statues are a great thing to build in Minecraft, because you can make a statue of just about anything, and it can be as realistic or as abstract as you like. Check out the above dragon statue build by YouTuber "thebigbaron" for some inspiration. I bet you could make a similarly awe-inspiring statue out of Netherite to give it some extra sleekness.

A screenshot of a Minecraft aquarium build.

Minecraft Aquarium build

There's a lot more going on in the sea in Minecraft nowadays than when I started playing. Kelp and sponge and fish and blocks of wild and wonderful colours. Put all that together, house it in some glass, and you've got yourself an aquarium! Of course, there's more to it than that if you want to design a really good-looking aquarium such as the one above, built by YouTuber "Blorg The Saint".

A screenshot of a Minecraft pyramid build.

Minecraft Pyramid build

A Pyramid is a fantastic template for an awe-inspiring Minecraft build. Its shape makes it easy to create complexity just by introducing and repeating patterns around the pyramid, which is how you can go from a regular old desert pyramid to a towering behemoth like the one above, built by YouTuber "FallenQbuilds". You can make life easier for yourself by using certain Minecraft commands (or better yet, WorldEdit), but there's nothing stopping you from getting stuck in building a massive pyramid in your survival world instead!

A screenshot of a Minecraft Taj Mahal build.

Minecraft Famous Landmark build

When you're thinking about Minecraft builds, it's always best to take inspiration from real life architecture. The truly spectacular creations are often the landmarks that are known all over the world. Places like the Taj Mahal, recreated above by YouTuber "Vexel Design". Or the Eiffel Tower, or Stonehenge, or the Statue of Liberty. Hell, why not the Grand Canyon if you're in the mood for some landscaping? You could even try recreating the Library of Alexandria (although that would take a lot of books)!

A screenshot of a Minecraft mountain base build.

Minecraft Mountain Base build

If you're looking for a new thing to build in Minecraft, why not create a new base somewhere? An outpost from which you can explore new lands. And what better place to make one than to embed it into the side of a mountain, so you can see and scout for miles around? There are all sorts of wonderful ways that you can build into the side of a mountain or cliff. The above build is but one of the ideas showcased in this video by YouTuber "Tentango".

A screenshot of a Minecraft underground base build.

Minecraft Underground Base build

An underground base is something we've probably all made at one point or another in Minecraft. Digging down and setting up a subterranean camp is one of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe from surface-dwelling mobs on the first night. But why stop with just a camp? Why not turn it into a sprawling underground base filled with everything you could ever need to survive, like YouTuber "Spudetti" made above?

A screenshot of a Minecraft underwater base build.

Minecraft Underwater Base build

As I mentioned before, aquatic life is much more interesting nowadays in Minecraft, which makes the idea of an underwater base all the more appealing. There's nothing much stopping you from building an underwater base; just make sure you bring some ladders with you so you can stop to catch your breath every so often! The above build from YouTuber "Zaypixel", who also created the above bridge build, combines underwater and mountain base ideas by building into the side of an underwater mountain.

A screenshot of a Minecraft farm build.

Minecraft Farm build

A good farm is a wonderful sight in any game, Minecraft included. There's something so satisfying about rows upon rows of neatly organised crops. If you're after a more practical build then why not set to work making a new farm that can house all the carrots, potatoes, and wheat you could ever hope for? There are plenty of tutorials on creating compact farms in Minecraft, like the one above made by YouTuber "disruptive builds".

A screenshot of a Minecraft clock tower build.

Minecraft Clock Tower build

Just look at that clock tower. Isn't it a beauty? It was made by YouTuber "IrieGenie" (who made the ship build higher up in this list) and it tells you everything you need to know about why a clock tower is the perfect thing to build in Minecraft. Cross a skyscraper with a cathedral and you've got a clock tower - and the best part is that you can make it in any style you like. You want to lean into the Steampunk side and fill the tower with gears and pistons? Go ahead! Or do you want a dark gothic clock tower that would look at home in a Tim Burton film? Who's stopping you?

A screenshot of a Minecraft Among Us pixel art build.

Minecraft Pixel Art build

I don't know, this one looks sus... When it comes to the question of practicality, there's really no build less practical than a piece of 2D pixel art. But there's also nothing quite like logging onto your survival server to see that your friend has "griefed" you with a massive pixel art creation outside your house. YouTuber "RocketZer0", who created the above art, has put out multiple videos on different pieces of pixel art to inspire you.

A screenshot of a Minecraft nether hub build.

Minecraft Nether Hub build

A good Nether Hub is a thing of beauty, combining the grand with the practical in a way that few other builds on this list can manage. Travelling by Nether is the fastest way to travel long distances in Minecraft, but it's also a very dangerous place, as you'll know if you ever tried to obtain ingredients for making Minecraft potions, or the items that you need to start a fight with the Wither. A Nether Hub should make you feel safe to travel for long periods in the Nether, but there's also no reason for it not to look fantastic, like the above hub designed by YouTuber "Kemit".

A screenshot of a Minecraft storage room build.

Minecraft Storage Room build

A storage room is just about the most practical build you could ever make. It's all about practicality, about organising your things so that you always know exactly where to go to find what you're looking for. Minecraft gives you lots of tools like signs and item frames to help with such a build, and if you're putting in that much effort then you might as well make the place look nice! Check out the lovely storage room build above by YouTuber "TheMythicalSausage" and let yourself be inspired.

A screenshot of a Minecraft fantasy town build.

Minecraft Fantasy Town build

If you're a Creative Mode player (or team of players) who is looking for a truly colossal building project, then one of the most satisfying and incredible things you can make is a full-size fantasy village or town. The above build is a recreation of the town Orario from the DanMachi series, and it was created by the "Varuna" design team. As builds go, it doesn't get much more breathtaking, does it?

A screenshot of a Minecraft nature reserve build.

Minecraft Nature Reserve build

Parks and nature reserves are some of my very favourite places to go in the real world, and both places make for great building projects in Minecraft. If you're tiring of big blocky creations and you're looking for a more landscape-oriented build, then a nature reserve is a chance to create a truly beautiful area of land, and then fill it with foxes, horses, and all other animals you'd like. Take a look at this video by YouTuber "Keralis" for inspiration.

A screenshot of a Minecraft PvP arena build.

Minecraft PvP Map build

For the game devs and level designers among us, it can be incredibly interesting and rewarding to design a PvP map or arena build in Minecraft, one that is specifically designed for players to fight inside. You have to think not only about how everything will look, but also about whether the sides (if there are sides) will be balanced, how much cover there is around, whether there are any traps or drops that it's impossible to jump out of, and so on. And you can make it any size or shape you want. The above build was made by YouTuber "Gamarudo", and opts for the traditional gladiator arena approach; but you can make a PvP map out of just about anything you want.

That wraps up our list of cool Minecraft building ideas!

Now discussing:

Shelters are created by players to essentially pass the night and fend off mobs. A list of shelter design and tutorials are as follows.


A large Minecraft house.
  • A mountain hideout
  • A floating house
  • A small dirt shack (Good for the first night)
  • Small one or two story house
  • Large 2 or 3 story house
  • A hill fort
  • A treehouse
  • An underground shelter
  • A small fort
  • A larger fort or castle (a collection of buildings, sometimes arranged around a courtyard. Usually with defenses)
  • A walled off area (Even if there is no ceiling, it will still let you sleep if it's closed off)
  • A very large castle (about 40×40×23)
  • A mansion (Bigger than 30×30×10)
  • A cabin
  • A dugout (When making it, you will gain and not use blocks, unless you run into an opening that you want to block off.)
  • An underwater base (not a good first shelter.)

Generally you want to start basic, don't over-exert yourself on the first day!

Get creative! Build a dock, or a town. It is fine to have useless buildings only for their looks. A collection of small builds can make something far greater than one, big building.

Shelters for the first night[]

Here are some options for a shelter on your first night that can be built with limited resources.

Hole in the wall[]

While you were gathering cobblestone and coal on your first day, you most likely dug a small hole in the side of a surface cave, or staircase down through the dirt. In either case, you can use that hole as a shelter. Dig a few more blocks into the hill or cave wall, then you can dig a small room (8×8×3 is the most recommended. It's not too small, but not too big.) Relocate your crafting table and furnace in here, and make sure to light it up!

You can place a door across the entrance to your shelter to protect you from mobs, while still giving you access. It is generally recommended to place it from the outside (go outside your shelter and place it while looking inside.)

If you don't have wood to spare for a door, simply cover your entrance with dirt or cobblestone when night falls, periodically breaking it to check for daytime (watch out for mobs though!)

Atop a pillar[]

Build a tall 1×1 column under you, by pillar jumping: look straight down, jump up, and place one of your blocks in the space you've jumped up from. By doing this repeatedly, you can get high enough above the ground that ground-based mobs are unable to detect you. You can make the pillar out of dirt, wood planks (remember, 4 planks to a log), or even cobblestone, but avoid using sand or gravel to make your tower (see below).

Going 10 or 12 blocks up will usually be enough, 16 is safer (skeleton range), and 20 or 30 is more certain. Zombies can track a player 30 blocks up, but they cannot reach the player. You can also use sneaking (holding ) to lean over the edge to place extra blocks as a ledge. Then you can put your crafting table (and soon, your furnace) on the ledge and work overnight. Remember to retrieve them before you come down! You can look around and see what's happening overnight, but try to avoid putting your crosshairs on an enderman.

If you haven't slept in 3 or more in-game days, beware of phantoms, which can reach you on a pillar. Otherwise, watch out for climbing spiders or even (unlikely) a spider jockey. To fend off spiders, you can break one of the blocks below your top block, or build a lip around the block you're standing on. You do either of these by crouching as above, and placing or breaking blocks. You will not fall unless you let go of the shift key while leaning over the edge… or unless you are attacked, so don't do this if a spider is actually getting close to you (or if your tower is under 20 blocks and a skeleton is at the base). If a spider does climb the pillar, they're fairly unlikely to actually reach you, but, just in case, keep your stone sword in hand and whack them as soon as they come into reach, before they get up to you. (Attacking them will knock them down, causing them to take damage from the fall.)

Once it is light enough, and the undead have burned, simply dig out the blocks you're perched upon, until you're back on the ground. (Check for nearby creepers and other monsters first!) Don't just jump off your tower unless there's water below you – if you're high enough to avoid mob detection then you're high enough to take damage if you jump, or even die if you're 22 blocks or more up. Also keep an eye out for spiders, which can meet you halfway and knock you off the tower. If a creeper is hanging out at the base of your pillar, and you have more blocks, try going even higher—30, 40 blocks, or even up to cloud level. This makes monsters on the ground despawn far more quickly (because they are now farther away from you).

Do not use sand or gravel, because unlike most blocks, they are affected by gravity. You can't place a ledge with them, as they fall to the ground. (However, you can put a dirt block on the side of a sand pillar, and that will stay up even if the pillar doesn't. In particular, if a creeper does notice you, and blows up at the bottom of your pillar, the rest of sand you're standing on will fall closer to the ground, taking you with it… and apparently, you were already low enough for monsters to notice you. (Also, a passing enderman might pull a block out of your pillar.) If you're really stuck and only have sand or gravel, make the pillar extra-tall, at least 20 blocks.

If you are in a desert with only sand and cacti all around, and have no other blocks available, don't use cacti (they'll kill you). If you have time, try to gather a lot of sand to make sandstone. If you got at least 40 or 50 sand (a full stack of 64 is better) by nightfall, you can make enough sandstone for a pillar, even without your crafting table: Press E for your inventory and crafting window, divide the sand among all four boxes of your crafting grid, and take the sandstone. (Use your pickaxe to take down the tower in the morning.) Unfortunately, you need 4 sand to get each block of sandstone.

Up a tree[]

Find a single large tree and use dirt (or another non-valuable resource) to pillar up to top and stay up there until day arrives. Jungle, tall spruce, and large oak trees are recommended. Mobs will not spot you if it is a large enough tree, and if they do, just take evasive action and move to the other side of the tree. Spiders could give you a problem, but hopefully, they won't see you. If the leaf canopy is big enough, you can actually dig up into the leaves, where monsters can't reach you. If all else fails, jump between treetops. When night's over, you can chop down the tree. Take care not to chop it down before you are done using it as a shelter, or the leaves may start to disappear, leaving you with nowhere to stand.

Three block high hut[]

By making four three block high walls around you, you can simply hide from most mobs. Adding a roof (at the third block, that is 2 blocks high inside) protects against endermen (which can't fit) and spiders, which can otherwise climb the walls. You can make this out of almost anything—cobblestone is more secure, you can use wood planks if you have enough, but even dirt will do in a pinch. You need 13 blocks as a bare minimum (four 3-block high pillars around a 1×1 refuge), but two or three times that, or even a whole stack of 64, lets you build something you can actually move around in, and do some crafting and smelting overnight. (Note that you can use the crafting table and/or furnace as part of the walls.) Keep a block or few in your inventory as spares, in case of enderman theft (see below). You have two main risks: One is spiders, which can both sense you through the walls, and climb the walls. However, they can't fit through small holes, and if you make a roof with only a one-block hole, spiders can't get through (but you can still tell when day returns). The other hazard is if an enderman wanders by and takes a block out of your shelter. Wait for the enderman to wander away a bit, then replace the block, with one of your spares, if possible without letting your cursor cross the enderman (“looking at them”). When full daylight comes, mine a door in your wall, and exit. Keep a wary eye out for monsters, and in particular be prepared to run very fast away from creepers.

In a cave[]

If you found a cave system you can fix it up into a lair—a good one can make a base for the rest of your game. If it ends quickly, then cap off your entrance. If it does not end, then build a little shelter around you by capping off any extra exits or openings into the depths. Don't worry too much about the natural walls of the cave; monsters can still be heard through the walls pretty loudly, but they can't come through unless you leave an opening.

To block the cave off, for your first night you can use walls of dirt or cobblestone similarly to the "hole in the wall". If you have enough wood, you may be able to craft fences and a fence gate and place them across the entrance and any openings in back. Make sure you place the walls or fences behind the upper lip of the cave (or extend the ceiling over the barrier), or monsters are liable to "drop in" inside your barrier. Also, remember to light the area before you settle down. Likewise, remove any stray blocks, within two spaces outside the fence, from which monster could jump onto the fence (try the jump yourself). If using fences, also make sure you can retreat into the cave and away from the entrance (out of sight or 16 blocks away), or a creeper may drop by and just wait for you to come out. Later, you can be more sophisticated about sealing off and fortifying your lair.

As with "Hole in the wall", you can dig into the cave's wall while waiting for dawn, but keep some blocks handy to patch up any openings you might make into another cave while digging, which might have a hostile mob in it. If you place your pickaxe one of your hotbar slots (used to navigate quickly between items you are carrying in your inventory) and e.g. dirt is placed right next to it, you can quickly switch between your tool and that block type in order to close the hole you just made. This can be extremely handy when you stumble upon an opening which contains mobs.

Hill Fort[]

Just like cave systems and bunkers and Castle tower. Hill forts are forts that can be made by strong or earth-made materials such as dirt or stone. Unlike castle or an outpost tower,hill forts have better defenses and you can create your own cave system for hidden base and hidden storage for your important stuff. You can also create your bunker directly within the fort or near the fort. Hill forts are better for PvP bases and raid farming since you can hide magma blocks under a trapdoor and make a lava flow.

For starter Hill fort, you can just make it out of dirt or any earth-made materials like sand and gravel.

For easy Hill fort, it will be made out of any wooden materials like oak log and oak planks.

For normal Hill fort, this can be made with any stone materials such as cobblestone and smooth stone. You can also install defenses using magma blocks and deep hill moat.

For hard Hill fort, it will be made out of obsidian so nobody could destroy it easily. You can install deadly traps such as night activating lava trap.

For advanced and intense Hill fort, it's still can be made with obsidian but with new cave system and maze system so raiders can't find you or your loot easily.

Anyway, you can install any traps even if you're still starter. Cave systems and maze can be done two even when you are still in starter fort. Forts are amazing in raid farming since you can install traps in it to kill raiders (except vexes).

Out to sea[]

If you are near an ocean, you can make a boat (see that page for the recipe) and sail out to where you can barely see land (in any direction). If you can't make a boat, just swim out to the sea, holding the space bar all night to keep yourself afloat. Either way, you won't be getting any crafting or smelting done. Note that drowned can board your boat and cause damage, so getting to land and building a shelter is preferable.

Break the golden rule[]

When you're desperate, you can break the golden rule of minecraft (Don't dig straight down). Dig three blocks down, and put a block above you that is not sand/gravel. Congrats, you just made the fastest shelter in Minecraft possible. Since you probably don't have an in-game clock yet, you may want to use a real-world clock to time the night (7 minutes, with up to 3 more to allow for dawn/dusk). If you have dirt or stone next to you, you can dig out a couple of blocks there, and place your crafting table and furnace. Sometimes keep the hole in the ground as a base. A torch makes your little hidey hole feel a little less like a tomb.

Vertical hidey hole[]

This design allows you to see what is going on every time you come out, but it does require a bit of extra wood.

Once you reach stone, you can mine some of the stone, craft a furnace, make charcoal, and craft torches.

The next morning, check for mobs, particularly creepers, as you climb out.

Blocks to use[]

These materials are good because they are:

  • More or less easily obtained.
  • Fairly nice-looking (if used correctly).

If you want a certain theme, such as the Nether or the End, certain materials such as Nether bricks or End stone from those dimensions can be used. If you're in Creative or have easy access to sand, glass often looks nice, and you do not need torches. Use it for a greenhouse look, or just if you like the sunshine.

Core rooms[]

There are several things that are very useful to include in your house in Minecraft.


Every house should have a main room with an entrance from the outside. You may wish to include a bed, a furnace, and a crafting table in this room. It would be convenient to connect all hallways or separate rooms to this room. Some tools, weapons, armor, and/or food stored in a chest can be useful, as then you can gather up some essential supplies quickly when coming to your home for a quick resupply.

Crafting room[]

See also: Crafting

This room is helpful to the player when crafting items. A crafting room may include a crafting table, at least one furnace, and a sufficient number of chests containing common crafting materials found while mining or exploring, such as wood, cobblestone, and iron, as well as any other materials that may be useful while crafting, such as sticks or wood planks. Labeling the chests will help to organize. There should be quick access to the storage room from here. Wood would be a nice material to use as it suits the theme.

Smelting room[]

See also: Smelting

This room is important if you are a big miner and/or adventurer as you can smelt large numbers of ores quickly. Make a large room and line the walls with furnaces, possibly keeping a chest of fuel such as coal or wood planks inside as well (A bucket of lava is very good too. It can smelt 100 items and also is a good source of light.). The benefit of having multiple furnaces is a faster overall smelting time, since each furnace is able to run independently. Having each furnace full of said fuel is also helpful. This room could easily be merged with the Crafting Room, and it may be most convenient to do so. Also, bear in mind that you can use hoppers if you wish to automate your smelting operations.

Storage room[]

A room full of chests for storing all of the dirt, cobblestone and other less-valuable materials that accumulates in your inventory while mining. You can also make a lava 'bin' to dispose of your unwanted items; this can be done by simply digging a hole (don't use wood etc. near it - the lava will ignite flammable blocks) and filling it with lava. You may also build another store room, with a guarded and hidden entrance though this store room is usually filled with more valuable and rare materials, i.e. gold, iron, diamonds, emeralds, etc. Perhaps you even want to include a trapped room with trapped chests and TNT, if you are in PVP.

Entrance to your mine[]

It's generally a good idea to put the entrance to your mine inside your shelter, simply so that if you return at night you won't encounter mobs. It's probably a good idea to make sure your mine is well lit by torches, redstone lamps, or glowstone. If playing in a mode besides peaceful, you should put a door so mobs do not get in (use iron doors when on hard - zombies on that difficulty can damage wooden doors to the point of breaking). Buttons are useful for any barrier only opened by Redstone.


Sleeping in a bed resets your spawn point to that bed. It's a pretty good idea to have this in a secure bunker. It's also a good idea to keep this room far from the outdoors, so a mob cannot prevent you from sleeping or blow up your bed. For added safety against creepers creeping up on you or PVP griefers in your sleep, use three-layered walls, with the middle one being Obsidian or Water.


Once you've been to the Nether and gathered some blaze rods, you can create a Brewery, which is simply a room with a brewing stand and a cauldron (however an infinite water source works just the same and doesn't run out). It is great to be able to brew some potions to prepare yourself for leaving your base. Include a chest with some potion ingredients such as sugar, redstone, blaze powder, nether wart, glowstone dust, spider eyes, magma cream, fermented spider eyes, glass bottles and a well as it is an unlimited water supply.

Positive Effect Potions and an example of a brewery can be found, at the brewing page.

Enchanting room[]

See also: Enchanting

After gathering some diamonds, obsidian, sugar cane, and leather (to make a book),you can build an Enchantment Table. This lets you enchant your items (See Enchanting for help on design), and since bookshelves give you higher level enchantments, this room could also be a good use for your sugar cane. It's also a good idea to keep this room close to your mob grinder for easily regaining your xp and to keep a chest with books in this room to enchant them and, of course, store enchanted books.


You need a source of food readily accessible from your shelter. Wheat seeds are the easiest food to get, so start with them. Later, you can plant other crops, like potatoes and carrots. The aforementioned crops can also be used to breed certain passive mobs for more effective food. You can also grow pumpkins, which are obtained from dungeon chests and/or found in the wilderness (Usually taigas, extreme hills, and forests). Melons seeds found in dungeon chests aren't a good source of food, but can be good for potions, via glistering melons. Beetroot seeds are also a choice, although you need to find a village or visit the End or get beetroot seeds which are obtained from dungeon chests first.

Later in game, you may also want to build farms for other plants, such as sugarcane, cactus or chorus fruit, or even flowers and tall grass (details explained in the Expansions section).

Nursery/Arboretum (tree farm)[]

Eventually, you will use up all the trees in your immediate surroundings, so you will want to replant them with saplings. Keep it well lit, both to keep away mobs and speed up the growth of trees. Birch is recommended, because it grows fastest, but oak and jungle trees are also a good choice, due to their apples and immense size respectively. It is difficult to build an indoors or underground tree farm that will supply your wood needs, unless you use bone meal or keep it well lit. Create a room that is bigger than trees.


An armory is a room near the front door with chests containing food, armor; and weapons, this is for easy access when you are going outside, and so you can quickly prepare yourself to explore and collect items. For an even faster alternative, this room consists of a number of dispensers, activated by a single button or pressure plate, providing the adventurous player a way to get started immediately. This is very useful for exploring dangerous caves and going on night expeditions.

Smithing room[]

After building an anvil, you might want to make a room with a crafting table, a smithing table, a chest, easy access to an enchanting room, and of course the anvil. Handy if you fight monsters or other players a lot.

Nether portal room[]

See also: Nether portal

Once you have at least 10 obsidian, either from mining it in a cavern or obtaining it through obsidian farming you can build a nether portal. Once built, activate it with a flint and steel, and you can travel to the the Nether. This can be used for fast travel and for getting lava, netherrack, Soul Sand, Nether quartz ore and glowstone. Beware of ghasts, zombie pigmen and blazes as well as magma cubes. Building another nether portal room in the nether for protection is a recommended idea. Please note cobblestone is a good block to build with in the Nether since ghasts can't destroy it with their fireballs.

Note: the player can potentially create a cabin with all of these.


These projects, while not entirely mandatory, make your base more useful and interesting.

Trading Hall[]

A Trading Hall is a location to gather villagers to trade with. This is the type of thing a very advanced player with a lot of time on their hand would do, or a bored Creative player. With a few farms, these can make perfect equipment and food with just a bit of time.


This is basically a crafting room, but you only craft food. The chest(s) should contain most basic foods, including wheat, milk, eggs, etc. Many people, instead of having a kitchen, just craft food in the crafting room, but a kitchen is a nice expansion, because it separates crafting materials so that you don't fill your crafting room's chests with wheat instead of wood. You could also add a smoker if you want.


This is basically an expansion of a kitchen. You could build this and a kitchen, and just connect them. You would use this to make cakes, pumpkin pies and bread. Place a crafting table, chest, and, if you want, a display table for cakes. If you want to make a large amount of cakes, make a cake farm under or near the bakery.


This is also an expansion of a kitchen. Make sure that they are categorized so you don't get mixed up. You can use a chest or dispenser to use everything in them. Put some cooked meat, bread, cookies, cakes and melons in them.

Note: If you are using a dispenser, you need to activate it with a redstone signal.

Control room[]

This is a common room to find in most advanced player's houses, but only if said advanced player uses a lot of redstone in their builds. It controls all of the redstone devices a player has and usually consists of:

  • Levers/Buttons/Other Input Methods- These are used to activate/deactivate redstone signals.
  • Redstone torches/Redstone lamps- These are mainly used to determine whether the signals are on or off.
  • Signs- These are probably the most important thing you can have in your control room. These help you determine what each lever/button does.


This is mainly for if you get bored. It's quite simple and obvious how to build and use.

Mob XP farm / drop collector[]

An experience farm uses water currents to push most mobs into a central area. With mobs in the nether, pistons are used. Use a piston crusher or a long drop to get the mobs to a ½ heart. Mobs can be killed by hand or with a splash potion of harming (Healing for undead mobs) to get XP. Note: This is more efficient with multiple spawners, as more spawners mean more spawning opportunities. You also obtain drops from each mob killed. This can also be done with large dark rooms with platforms. The mobs spawn and fall into water currents, where you can choose what happens to them once they are out of the spawning chamber.

Rebuilding wall[]

If for some reason you want to have a wall that you can’t get rid of, you can make a cobblestone generator, and make pistons push the cobblestone (which reforms) up into the wall, unless there are no missing blocks in it. Look at Sethbling's channel for more information or Mumbo Jumbo's indestructible wall V2

In-Shelter Teleporter Room[]

If you have Cheats enabled, you can create a room that teleports you to other rooms in your shelter. you will need command blocks and basic knowledge of using commands to make the room. A non-cheat method is to build an ender pearl stasis chamber, which can teleport you to any room. Note: This will require ender pearls so you need an enderman farm.

Redstone lab[]

A laboratory is a large, clear, secure area where you can safely test designs without distractions. When building large redstone projects with complicated parts, it can save you time and effort if you test the ideas first. However, it's often best to test ideas in creative mode and implement them in survival.

Cake factory[]

A cake factory simply provides the avenue to quickly produce cake by having the necessary ingredients nearby and produced in a close area, most commonly in one large factory type building. To make a cake factory, make a Wheat Farm, a Sugar Cane Farm, an Egg Farm, and a cow in a cage (make the cage so you can milk the cow.). Place a crafting table and a chest. Once you have enough materials from the farms, start making cakes. This is a good thing to put under/next to a dining hall in multiplayer.

Path / road[]

Consider building a road or a path between your buildings or to the nearest village. Remember to keep it well lit so no mobs spawn! A good material is a Grass Path.

Cobblestone generator[]

See also: Tutorials/Cobblestone farming

A cobblestone generator provides a safe and convenient way to gather cobblestone. They typically involve mixing water and lava.


Sometimes called a panic room, a Bunker is a small room made of strong materials (obsidian for example) with an iron door with the open/close system inside the room. This room must have a bed, a crafting table, a furnace and also a chest with the basic materials (food, tools, armor and weapons are a must). It also has to have a high interior luminosity to avoid monsters spawning inside. It should also be only two blocks tall so Endermen can't teleport inside.

Panic room[]

A panic room is a place meant just for fun, where you put the entrance somewhere where you wouldn't go looking for another room, e.g. the drain in a shower because if using a trapdoor for the drain you can open it.

Scout tower[]

A cheap and safe way to survey the land. Note that these are mostly obsoleted by maps, should you have the resources to make them, although a map doesn't tell you if there are any aggressive mobs. Remember to keep a spyglass at the top!

Seed and flower farm[]

You can have a fully-automatic flower and seed farm with just a bit of Redstone and tons of bone meal! Have an 8×8 area of grass with some hoppers at the end. Then, place a row dispensers at the back, facing the grass, and put buckets of water in them. Hook up some Redstone from a BUD switch at the end and delay with Repeaters. Attach another line of Redstone and hook it up to Dispensers, under the Grass and filled with bone meal while facing the Grass on top. If you do it right, automatic block updates should cause grass and flowers to grow and immediately be destroyed by the water flow and be carried along the stream and have the water automatically get sucked in. XisumaVoid made a good tutorial.

Beacon / lighthouse[]

A tall tower with some sort of light source on the top means that you can see your base from a long distance away. Handy if you go exploring a lot, your spawn point is a long way from your base, or you have not made a bed yet.

Beacon room[]

Make this room by digging a 6×6×6 hole and building the base pyramid out of your selected material (Iron is cheapest unless you have a Trading Hall, but you can also use Netherite, Diamonds, Emeralds and Gold). Also, you could put in a few chests with diamonds, Netherite, iron, emeralds and gold and/or make it look like an altar.

Kennel / pet area[]

If you have tamed a lot of wolves, a kennel is a good place to keep them. A simple shed-like structure will suffice, but be sure to keep it well lit for the dogs' safety. A pet area is similar to a kennel, but keeps dogs and cats. For a more realistic feel, separate them.


A renewable water source is useful for a variety of projects. Put water in a 1×3 ditch and you can take water repeatedly from the center! For a more aesthetically pleasing pool, a 2×2 well works as well, and you can take water from any of the squares.

Mushroom farm[]

A big room with flat floor for growing mushrooms. You can light your farm by torches or glowstone, placed on ceiling, to prevent mobs from appearing. Just make sure that there are no places on the floor where the light level is greater than 12. If you have the material, Redstone torches are good for this. More about this can be found on the Tutorials/Mushroom farming page. Alternatively, find a small cave or make one, put some mushrooms inside and completely seal it off without torches and check on it/clean it out. Also provides the drops from hostile mobs.

Sugar cane and cactus farms[]

See also: Tutorials/Sugar cane farming and Cactus farming

Easier to manage but somewhat less useful than the above two projects, farming sugar cane and cactus underground requires little effort. A cactus farm requires sand to grow, and sugar cane needs to be properly irrigated with water within one block of it. If you don't want to spend lots of time harvesting your cactus, place a three-block-tall pillar next to where you want your cactus (See Farming for more info).

Indoor animal farm[]

Light up a large area with a grass floor. Then put two of the same kind of passive mobs (i.e., two pigs or two cows) inside. You can then breed them together and you can gather wool, leather, pork, beef and raw chicken safely. You might want to put trees inside so the animals feel more comfortable, or, if you're really ambitious, build a man-made forest.


This is very easy to make, and can be very useful, especially if you don't have a wheat farm yet. Just make a hole long enough to cast your fishing rod, around 8 blocks long and at least 2 blocks deep, and fill it with water.

Music room[]

A room filled with note blocks to enjoy melodies. This can be made with or without redstone repeaters.


Not only is it a great use for any excess sugar cane, a library can also add a bit of class to your home. Can double as an enchantment room.

Minecart hub[]

If you have active mines scattered over the map and use minecarts to haul your stuff back to your base, dig out a universal stopping point under your base. Or, you could actually make a rail road hub outside or connected to your base.

Minecart chest system[]

After a lot of days in Minecraft, you will soon have the ability to automate everything (farms, doors, etc.). The most useful automation you can make is a minecart chest system. You can simply craft minecarts with chests, powered rails, and some rails, and you can make a system to send your ores from your mine to your base,

Gravel-to-flint room[]

Once you have many stacks of gravel, it can be useful to convert most (leave some for mining) of your gravel into flint. This is just a big empty room (a 4×4×4 space holds a stack of blocks), which you fill with gravel, before destroying the gravel, getting some flint in the process. It is most efficient to do this 10 - 15 times for every 20 stacks, though about 5 for 10 stacks, and 30 for 50 or so stacks. This room may include a chest with shovels, as well as ingredients and a crafting table for quick production of arrows, and flint and steel.

This is somewhat redundent, since a Fletcher can trade you 10 Gravel and an emerald to 10 Flint. A stack is 6 Emeralds with 4 gravel left over and if you have a tree farm, two logs, 10 gravel, and a bit of trading can get you 10 Flint.

Target practice rooms[]

Make this room dimly lit, so hostile mobs can spawn, when you enter this room, always close the doors when entering and exiting, arm yourself and kill the mobs in there. Light the entrance area with torches. This helps you gain experience and loot.

Target practice room (non-hostile)[]

Make this room with a supply of bows, arrows, and several colorful blocks, such as dyed wool, (to determine distance rank) at different distances with buttons on each one facing you with each one hooked up to a redstone lamp. Target blocks are a good item to use, too.


If your base is near a lake, a bridge can help you cross to get resources and give you a safe spot to fish. Just create a 3-block wide path (using cobblestone would be a good idea) through the water, and you have a basic bridge! When you have time, you may want to add a ceiling+walls (for safety at night from mobs and during storms) and slits in the side (as either a dock or a place to fish.)


If one wants to fish indoors or drown themselves, a bathroom is perfect for them! Make a bath, a toilet and if the player is good with redstone, a shower with pistons is always a good idea for those who want to show their home to others. When the walls are made of cobblestone, make a hopper attached to a dropper or a dispenser to make a sink (just add a lever pointing downwards above) or a trash can. If the items cannot reach the outside for other players, add a "remove items" button to empty the items out to a chain of hoppers that lead to a public chest/thrift shop, or empties the items to something which destroys them(such as cacti, fire on netherrack, lava, etc.). Attach a hopper to dispenser by sneaking, then place the hopper. This will not work without sneaking. One wise idea is to have entrances to secret rooms in this room.

Dye room[]

A nice room where you can store dyes and clay. Typically only has to have one chest, but looks nice with hardened-clay walls.


A nice place to enjoy the view and the nice open air. Also a nice place to pick off those pesky creepers hanging by your front door.


A room with lava, for disposing of unwanted materials. A good way to do this is to create a two block high corridor with lava at the end, and a slab block just before the lava. This results in you being able to walk up to your incinerator but not into it, eliminating fear of death. Be careful with lava around flammable materials. You may replace the lava with a cactus, or burning netherrack. Hoppers can be used for a "hopper chain," which could lead to a thrift shop, where players can be charged for taking items. Adding this to the incinerator will attach a money source. If the hopper chain is full, items will be destroyed.
