What materials to choose

build a modern house, you will need lots of materials, especially of different types, in order to take care of every detail. Although building a house does not take a lot of time, it is in the attention to detail and the use of materials that you will give your utmost attention.

As I mentioned in the introduction of this post, the house to be built must be a cross between a fortification and a pleasant place to return to after completing your adventures. In this regard, in fact, you will have to make a choice on the materials to use, in order to make your home also resistant to enemy attacks.

Among the materials you can use is the wood, which is easy to find, as the world of Minecraft is covered with tons of trees. The problem, however, with this material is its poor resistance and its flammability. In fact, I advise you not to use it, except for furniture or to add elements of the house not exposed to direct attacks or flames and explosions.

A material, on the other hand, that can be of more help to you is the Stone, easily found in Minecraft thanks to the pietrisk. The latter material, working it in a furnace, is transformed into stone blocks, which are quite resistant to explosions and non-flammable. Although aesthetically these blocks are not beautiful to look at, you could use them for the foundations or for those surfaces to be built that will then be covered with other materials, such as sandstone slabs.

The latter material is obtained from the processing of sandstone blocks, obtainable in turn from the sand. They have a pleasant aesthetic appearance, with a sand color that can be useful for embellishing some rooms or making decorations.

If you are wondering why I recommend this resource, having first discarded the wood, I will answer you immediately: although i sand blocks are not very resistant, when they are transformed into sandstone blocks or slabs the strength properties become similar to those of stone. The downside is that it takes a lot of sand units to make sandstone slabs, which you can find in the desert biome or by waterways.

Another material that you can use to cover the exterior of the house facade is made up of brick blocks, which are resistant to attacks and explosions.

Bricks are obtained from Stone or from ourclay: the stone is obtained from pietrisk, very common material in Minecraft; clay, on the other hand, is extracted from clay blocks that you find in the bottoms of waterways.

Finally, the other materials I recommend are the concrete and l 'obsidian. a concrete block turns out to be particularly resistant to damage caused by enemies and is obtained from the processing of gravel and sand.

Its strong point, however, lies in the ability to customize the color to create rooms with a personal and unique tone, adding a dye during processing. After this process, gods are obtained concrete dust blocks which need to be watered withwater to become resistant concrete blocks.

THEobsidian, on the other hand, it is one of the strongest materials in Minecraft. It will be very useful in case you want to build an intermediate layer between the walls, in the floor or in the ceiling to completely insulate the house in case of serious damage coming from the outside.

If you do not know how to find this material, obsidian is obtained by pouringwater on washed: this will generate obsidian blocks on which you can use a diamond pickaxe to extract the resource.

Building a modern house

Now that you know what materials to use, it's time to start putting your building project into practice modern house on Minecraft.

If you already own a shelter, you can think of identifying the construction site in its immediate vicinity so that you can easily transport all the resources you need. If not, you can set up a temporary one, which contains all the work tools (e.g. tools, trunks, furnaces, workbenches, etc.) and, above all, a bed to set a respawn point for the avatar, should it unfortunately lose all life points.

The time you will spend on the construction of the building will be considerable, as, as mentioned above, you will spend most of the time on the attention to detail and research of resources. In this regard, take all the time you need, distributing the work over several days, so as not to get tired and also focus on other interests outside of Minecraft.

To get started, locate and level an area of ​​at least 20 × 20 blocks. Probably, if you don't want to create multiple floors, you will have to think about extending this surface. In any case, the first thing to do is to place the foundations and outline, with the first layer of blocks, what will be the rooms and external walls.

Once this is done, start sealing the entire structure, erecting the external walls and placing some cheers inside each room, to prevent the dark environment from generating unpleasant surprises while you are working. At this point, place the roof and windows (doors e windows), building them with resistant materials.

If you want to create a modern style house, you can think about creating different elements in glass, like large windows. This material is very fragile but, if you consider it essential for your project, you can make its use less "risky" by creating a defensive perimeter outside the house, so as to be sure that nothing can come close. To do this, create external fences that can prevent enemies from entering your home.

To conclude this chapter, I advise you to take care of all the details in detail, creating decorations for interiors and exteriors that are beautiful to the eye. I can advise you to use the system of projects available within the bank gives lavoro or consult the Minecraft Wiki, for ideas on the decorative elements to be made.
