Who else builded house with no cell and no floor? XD
Gale Anderson (13 hours ago)
As long as you're building SOMETHING, you're doin a good job. That said, go by the rule of threes if you want to make more visually pleasing designs. By that, I mean use at least 3 different types of blocks. You should try not to go over 5 tho, at least at first. Much higher and you risk making the design too busy. Be consistent to create a theme, if you use oak trapdoors on the first floor, make sure any other trapdoors you're using are also oak. For overhangs, if you want to get fancy or go gothic, use a butress or a flying butress. For simpler stuff or medieval styles, do jettying. Basically....look up real world architecture techniques if you want realistic looking architecture. That said, this is a pretty good video, it's just that I think you could get better technical details from looking up real world architecture vids instead. Cuz for people who need specifics this vid could feel a bit vague.

I might be repeating people by saying "I can barely make a box house in Survival!" But that's just it, the starter house aren't for building, they are for survival. When you got more things, enough stuff, you can build whatever you want.

I don't get why you put random blocks on the roof, you're building it out of wood not fucking thatch

minecraft is a game where no one can tell you what you can or cannot do and with no rules to follow the only limit is your imagination

I dont care how you build. the detail doesn't mean anything. It is just a house. There is no need for good detail or structure. A house is just a house it is perfect the way it is.☺☺

Problem with a LOT of your roofs is they give space for spawning. I consider this a minecraft fopaux. Nothing ruins a build like a creeper explosion. It's ok for creative mode, but never survival.

There have been times when I’ve left water flowing, but it’s for strategic reasons. If you make a moat and leave the water flowing out, then it becomes impossible for any ground-based mobs to get across and reach your house. Even drowned that spawn in the moat itself are trapped at the bottom. Plus, it gives me a sort of xp farm

Here is a building tip ive adopted for myself and helped me:
Try to think how you would make the building more logic, even before you build it. Plan ahead and be sure what youre doing.
Like, putting down a ladder on a large oak tree, trough all the leaves and branches just to build a stone box ontop.
Not very logic and not good looking.
Now, i think that a stone walls pillar surrounded bt wooden stairs leading to a wooden box that a large trunk of thr tree is holding, is more logic and good looking.
I came up with the stairs thing cus you cant hang ladders on air in regular survival.
Mighty Oshy (3 days ago)
Ive watched your video, and a while later, ive decided to build a castle. Your advice is gold. Like, gold is my favorite block. Its beautiful.
At first, ive built a rectangular base it it. I really felt something is wrong, so i tried to make it rectangular (shaping). It looked better. Then i got to a height that i wanted to start building walls by that lead to smaller watchtowers. Cobblestone from top to bottom didnt look that good, so instead ive put upside down stairs facing away from the wall, and behind them i built the wall (depth). Even better. I also planned ahead, and wanted to give the castle a steeple-ish look (roof decoration).
And inside the walls, there was a grass area, since ive built on savanna and plains. So i decided to make from the main stucture tilted grass paths to the wall's towers, and by the paths, ive made a garden. Bushes, plants, flowers,a pond, even ive addes animals including a beehive hanging on a large tree i built.
There you go, Grian. My mission here is accomplished. I am the medival king now, sitting on my golden throne, watching trough the coloured window on my beautiful village ive built.

This is just the very worst video I have ever watched. #1 mistakes? Judging designs? The whole point of the game is to create, not replicate what you have arbitrarily decided is "good". This video is Anti-minecraft if it is anything at all.

It is not a very good idea to add overhangs to your house because if zombies or skeletons get under your overhang, the moment you come outside you will have zombies and skeletons chasing you!

Dude its just game and who are are you to judge what you see. Yes your human. but other humans have there own way of doing things. I dont judge people unless they start messing with my life. But this is a simple minded video of what you want to see. No one person should change who they are on what you want.

Or medieval architecture. Absolutely full of (admittedly smaller) overhangs that do not go towards the ground (called jettying): https://i.imgur.com/xAubeiq.jpg

Fun fact about those "overhangs" Grian is that they are called 'cantilevers', these are used in modern builds and tudor houses to make more room on top - even though they do seem to be physics defying at first, they do look pretty cool tbh (if done right).
