In light of the above, plan the castle design carefully, without being in any hurry. Furthermore, considering that a castle is a defensive structure, it must be resistant to any enemy attack. So consider creating thick walls and making traps or ditches to limit or completely prevent enemies from approaching.
To create strong walls, consider using the stone bricks or clay, if you prefer. However, if you want to give a classic style to the structure you are building, between the two, stone is the most suitable material from an aesthetic point of view. In a workbench, therefore, use four units of Stone to generate a stone brick block.
In the inner section of the walls, if you don't want to use stone bricks, you can use cladding in concrete or in obsidian.
Il concrete is obtained from the processing, in a workbench, of four units of gravel, four units of sand and one of dye. By doing so, you get a concrete dust block on which, by payingwater, you get a concrete block.
In addition to this material, theobsidian it is particularly suitable to resist any explosion.
Making blocks with this material is simple: just pour somewater on of the washed to turn it into obsidian; then using a diamond pickaxe, you can collect it for use in your own projects.
For the interiors, on the other hand, you can use different types of coatings, such as concrete of different colors or leave the brick blocks, which I told you about in the previous lines.
In addition to these, you can create coatings with wooden boards, which are manufactured starting from wooden blocks in a workbench, or using blocks of sandstone. Four blocks of sand in a workbench to make a block of this material.

Also build some traps, crafting explosives or any other contraption that can help you defend yourself in the event of an enemy intrusion.
