As always, start off with a little grid
Make two lines of poles that are 3 blocks apart of each other. The lines must be 3 blocks apart and 3 blocks high, I recommend taking a look at the 4th picture for clarification.
Vertical beams on top of the poles
and more vertical beams connecting the two lines
The complete “skeleton” with measurements for clarification.
The first layer of the wall should be made of cobblestone to add texture to your walls.
Make this big-ass chimney, it will make the house more visible from longer distances, looks cool, having one makes a lot of sense and it is good for storage purposes.
The chimney consists of an 8 block high tower which is two blocks wide and 1 block thick. after that, place two cobblestone walls on top. The chimney is 9 blocks tall in total.
fill up the gaps in the construction with birch planks, not oak. we’ll use that for a roof.
You can remove the walls where you just built the chimney. I’ll come back to that later.
add the little thingies on top.
Now simply add the roof. Nothing difficult, just stairs.
Finish the roof with upside-down stairs.
You don’t need extra overhang at the side of the chimney.
As you can see the chimney actually saves you some room in your house, it looks good too, adding depth to your interior and all. The log flying between your walls is just for your viewing pleasure.
And isnt that just a marvelous place for a chest?
Of course you should add doors and windows, but we are not finished yet.
Start off with adding to normal oak wooden planks.
Then fill up the spaces in between with slabs. You just made a little porch
Build a little wall just under the edges of your porch
Then use fence posts to make supports.
Of course you will want to make a door to your little farm.
Hide a water source block under the log pillar.
Turn the whole thing into farmland, the water source block under your wooden pillar will be able to reach all of it.
I like to make a similar porch at the other end of the house, but this time it is actually a porch. The wooden terrace is not necessary but I kinda like it. I understand that not everyone does.
Make the porch just like the other one.
Use fences for supports once again. This time I recommend actually making a fence on the side and to place only one support in the middle.
Some interior. Have it your way. The fences at the head and feet ends of the bed is a nice detail.
Clocks in item frames, cakes and flower pots (with a plant of your choice) are great for touching up the interior. Make sure to add some if you’re not great at interior or if your space is limited. If you are going to make furniture like tables, use a type of wood you did not use in the construction.
The finished product
What I love about this design is how the roof slopes down.
