Required Materials:

  • Spruce Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.
  • Dark Oak and Oak Log, Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors
  • Wood.
  • Glass Pane.

Without a doubt, the first addition to this list has to be the Treehouse. This extremely charming yet tricky build will likely be one of the first major challenges new builders face in Minecraft. They have to create a platform in the trees with their base on top and maybe not fall to their deaths in the process.

2. Cliffside House

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Slabs, Stairs, and Trapdoor.
  • Oak Log.

All you have to do is grab a pickaxe and start hollowing out any hill that seems large enough to suit your build. You don’t have to collect any additional resources this way, and anything you require will be supplied by the natural formation itself. Hence, the Cliffside house is an optimal and efficient build in Minecraft.

3. Pool House

Required Materials:

  • Smooth Quartz, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Quartz Pillar.
  • Dead Fire Coral Block.
  • Glass.

Sometimes all it takes for a house to look unique and different in Minecraft is an attachment that makes it feel cozier. And there’s nothing more appealing for newcomers trying out Minecraft than a swimming pool. All this requires is an area of land next to your base, and a couple of water buckets.

4. Underground Base

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Slabs, Stairs, and Trapdoors.
  • Oak and Dark Oak Logs, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Glass Pane.

Underground bases can be some of the coolest structures you can ever build in Minecraft if you know what you’re doing. Like Cliffside Houses, these also potentially benefit from having to be dug out of the ground rather than be built from scratch using foundations or walls.

5. Secret Waterfall Base

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs and Slabs.
  • Leaves.
  • Buckets.
  • Glass Pane.

Live out your ultimate Batman fantasy by building the entrance to your secret base directly behind a Waterfall. Not only will this look really cool, but it will also act as the perfect camouflage against any other players in a competitive multiplayer scenario. What’s great about a Waterfall base is that you don’t necessarily have to build the ground-level entrance either. 

6. Farmhouse

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Planks, Slabs, Stairs, Fence, and Trapdoors.
  • Stripped Spruce Log.
  • Dark Oak Log.
  • Stone Brick Wall.

Every single one of your Minecraft house Ideas does not have to revolve around a cool-looking base or a unique quirk. Instead, how about creating a homey little Farmhouse where you can keep all your tamed animals close to yourself in one building?

7. Stilt House

Stilth House

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.
  • Concrete.
  • Glass Pane.

Aiming for a modern build in Minecraft? Try the Stilt House! The process of constructing this first requires you to build support beams. These don’t have to reach the bottom of the lake/river floor, but aesthetically, they look much better than a house simply floating on the water. From here, build these supports above the water to the level you want, then construct a foundation for your rooms.

8. Underwater House

Required Materials:

  • Glass.
  • Glowstone.
  • Oak Logs and planks.
  • Spruce Slabs and Stairs.

Now, we’ve reached the point on our list where the cool Minecraft ideas also start getting more challenging. And nothing screams challenge louder than building a base under the ocean while trying to stop yourself from drowning. Hard to achieve but Underwater Houses will surely be one of your proudest builds if you manage to pull it off.

9. Small Town

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Stone.
  • Spruce Wood, Slabs.
  • Oak Log.

To begin this project, you first have to construct a number of different homes and other buildings that you might find in a settlement. Put in some farmhouses, a town hall, some taverns, or even a castle keep. Basically, anything that seems to belong in a town, you can easily squeeze in here.

You can even ask all your friends to create their own personal residences inside the boundary wall, and then you can all play together going forward. If you don’t intend to play with other players, you can alternatively choose to populate your town with Villager NPCs instead.

10. Giant Tree House

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Oak Wood, logs, planks.
  • Leaves.

The process is honestly not as complicated as it seems, but it is extremely time-intensive. Players will have to construct the giant tree by using regular wood to create its entire structure and then layer out the top with Leaf blocks. And as anyone who’s played this game can attest, collecting leaves outside of creative mode is an incredibly tedious task.

11. Hanging House

Minecraft Building Ideas
Image Credit: TheMythicalSausage.

Required Materials:

  • Oak Planks and Stairs.
  • Stripped Oak and Stripped Dark Oak.
  • Stone.
  • Spruce Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.

The first thing you require for this base is a mountain biome, so go search for it until you find one in your world. Here you can find a number of different snowy peaks, any of which can potentially serve as your home. Once you’ve chosen the peak you’re going to use, create a platform from its side that will act as the anchor point.

This can be at the top of the mountain, or in the middle, it doesn’t matter. Simply pick what height you’d like to live at. Now using this anchor point, start building your Hanging House.

12. Floating Island Base

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Stone and Grass Block.
  • Quartz.
  • Spruce and Oak Slabs, Stairs, and Trapdoors.
  • Oak slabs, fence, planks.

To start work on this structure, you first require a starting point. This can only be achieved by building a line of blocks straight up from the ground until you reach the height you desire. Once the foundation is placed, all other blocks leading up to it can be broken. Now you can continue the build by laying down a flat layer of blocks and using it as a basis for the rest of your island.

13. Apartment Complex

Required Material:

  • Quartz.
  • Bricks.
  • Grey and Light Grey Concrete.

Are you looking forward to sharing a Minecraft world with your friends? Then instead of each player creating their own home, why not instead opt for a shared space? Build an apartment complex that has a room in it for each of your friends, and then you can all live together and build together.

14. Pyramid House

Required Materials:

  • Sandstones.
  • Quartz Stairs.
  • Glass Pane.

Here’s another entry on the list of cool Minecraft Building ideas for you to try out. How about instead of a regular home, you try and build a pyramid with multiple different floors? Not only will this look really nice, but it also has the added benefit of being incredibly easy to actually construct.

15. Boat House

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Slabs and Stairs.
  • Oak Logs.
  • Cobblestones.

We’ve previously talked about homes built under the water and over the water, but what about a house that rests directly on it instead? With a boat house that’s exactly what you get, but don’t expect this structure to actually move like a real boat.

16. Aquarium House

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Planks, Trapdoors, Stairs, and Signs.
  • Quartz Slabs and Stairs.
  • Sea Lanterns And Iron Bars.
  • White Concrete.

An aquarium house is one of the most visually appealing buildings that players can build, and they have a lot of flexibility in how to go about doing this. It’s essentially a regular home with fish tanks as walls.

17. Small Castle

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Cobblestone.
  • Birch planks.
  • Stone Brick, Stone Brick Stairs, Stone Brick Slabs.
  • Spruce and Dark Oak Log and Slabs.
  • Iron Bars.

Instead of a regular house, why not build a castle out of stone blocks instead? You can put in a nice little moat, a gate, and even some ramparts from which you can observe your surroundings. It’s a castle, your design choices are only limited by your imagination.

18. Island House

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Oak Slab, Planks, Stairs, Log, Fence, Fence Gate, Door, and Trapdoor.
  • Spruce Stairs, Planks, Door, and Trapdoor.
  • Stone Bricks, Walls, and Stairs.

Go out into your Minecraft world and pick any isolated island. If you feel that it’s an appropriate distance away from the shore and that you won’t get tired of constantly traveling to it, then put down some roots there. All you have to do for this build is flatten out the island, lay down a foundation, and start constructing a house on it.

19. Japanese House

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs, Planks, Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.
  • Cobblestone, stairs, slabs, and walls.
  • Prismarine.
  • Stone, Stone Slab, and Stone Button.

Traditional Japanese homes are basically regular houses but with slightly more elaborate aesthetics. They have sliding doors in place of regular doors, and their roofs are a bit more curved and colorful than traditional Western buildings. However, slidable doors aren’t a thing in Minecraft yet, hence, people go for trapdoors while making Japanese houses in Minecraft.

20. Bridge Home

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Dark Oak Log.
  • Dark Oak Fence, Slab, Stairs, and Planks.
  • Oak Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.
  • Stone Bricks, Walls, and Stairs.
  • Cobblestone.
  • Bricks.
  • Spruce stairs, slabs, trapdoors, and planks.

Now this entry on our list would go into the Small Minecraft Building Ideas category. And as the name implies, it is literally a house built on a bridge. To begin the construction process, find an area that would be perfect for a bridge. Simply look for any stretch of land with a gap in between. All you need to do is construct a bridge over the gap and then build a house on it.

21. Lighthouse

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Stone Bricks, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Cobblestone.
  • Glowstone.
  • White Concrete and Red Concrete.

A lighthouse is an incredibly easy build for almost anyone, and on top of that, it simply looks really cool. You can technically build it anywhere you want on the map, but a beach or other coastal areas are more thematically appropriate.

22. Japanese Pagoda

Minecraft Building Ideas
Image Credit: SheepGG.

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Dark Oak Log, Stripped Oak Log, and Stripped Birch Log.
  • Coral Block and Spruce Slabs and Stairs.
  • Oak Logs, Planks.
  • Cobblestone.

A Japanese Pagoda is a multi-tiered tower that is as beautiful as it is complex. This is not something that anyone can attempt to build without at least a basic understanding of Japanese architecture. However, if you really want to test your Minecraft Building skills than you’re more than welcome to construct a Japanese Pagoda!

23. Skyscraper

Minecraft Building Ideas
Image Credit: HexRegulus.

Required Materials:

  • White Concrete.
  • Cyan Terracotta.
  • Glass.
  • Smooth Stone Slabs.

A Skyscraper is indeed an impressive building to construct, but it also happens to be one of the more straightforward giant constructs on this list. To start with, all you have to do is make a massive square foundation and start building straight up from the four corners. Once this outline has been built, you can divide the building into floors and design its exterior to suit your liking.

24. Windmill

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Log, Slabs, and Planks.
  • Cobblestone and Mossy Cobblestone.
  • Grass Block.
  • White Wool and White Concrete.

Are you looking to give your world a more rustic feel, or do you simply want to add a thematically appropriate building to your farm? Then what you require is a Windmill, which can serve as both a home and a simple decoration. The process of constructing this is fairly simple as well.

25. Nether Sword Portal

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Obsidian.
  • Deep slate Tiles, Stairs, Walls, And Slabs.
  • Crimson Stairs, Slab, Trapdoor, And Fence.
  • Block Of Amethyst, and Amethyst Cluster.

When you think of a Nether Portal in Minecraft, the first image that your mind conjures up is probably a basic rectangular gateway. It’s the simplest and the easiest shape to give to a starter portal, and most players probably never change this design going forward. But your Nether Portals don’t have to look boring, they can have cool designs too like the Nether Sword Portal.

26. Nether Base

Minecraft Building Ideas
Image Credit: ItsMarloe.

Required Materials:

  • Polished Black Stones.
  • Nether Bricks.
  • Warped Blocks.
  • Polished Basalt, Obsidian, Shroomlight, and Iron Bars.

If you’ve been playing Minecraft for a while, sometimes it helps to spice things up a bit. Why build your next base in the Overworld again, when you can opt to build it in the burning pits of the Nether?

27. Mansion

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs and Trapdoors.
  • Spruce Planks, Stairs, Slabs, Trapdoors, and Fences.
  • Dark Oak Fences and Fence Gates.
  • Stone Bricks.
  • Cobblestone.

If you’re feeling a bit fancy, a large multi-storied mansion is a great new project to get involved in. It’s essentially a large home, with multiple different wings that can be used for different purposes like a library, art room, and even an armory. This is one of the simpler entries on our cool building ideas list.

28. Fountain

Required Materials:

  • Stone Bricks.
  • Smooth Stone.
  • Sea Lantern.

Speaking of fountains, it’s never a bad idea to have the knowledge to build one of these. Not only are they extremely pleasant to look at, but constructing one of them is an instant way of adding a lot of style and appeal to an otherwise boring-looking home. For this process, you require a type of block that you think will work well in a fountain. Stone bricks will look really nice, but so will the pure white blocks of Quartz.

29. Library

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs, Planks, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Oak Logs, Trapdoors, and Stairs.
  • Smooth stone.
  • Bookshelves.

Whether it’s constructed as part of an already existing house or as a standalone building, a Library works well either way. It doesn’t actually serve a purpose apart from looking great, because most books aren’t actually readable. But you can also use the library as a part-time enchantment room in your Minecraft world.

30. Fishing Dock

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs, Fence Gates, and Slabs.
  • Spruce Slabs, Trapdoors, Logs, and Fence Posts.
  • Campfire Blocks.

We’ve previously talked about docks on this Building Ideas list as part of other structures, but they can also work on their own. A dock can serve as both a literal storage space for your boats, as well as a spot for you to simply relax and catch fish.

31. Automated Farms

Required Materials:

  • Mossy Stone Bricks, Stairs, and Walls.
  • Mossy Cobblestone.
  • Spruce Slab, Stairs, and Trapdoors.
  • Podzol.

Farming is one of the most convenient sources of food in the game, and as such most players will gravitate toward it automatically as they play. But having to manage a farm by yourself can be a bit tedious, with planting and harvesting taking up a lot of time. So why not automate the process instead?

All grown crops in the game automatically get harvested and washed away anytime they interact with flowing water. So by building a system where a lever-controlled piston lets water flow through a farm via a well, players can instantly harvest all of their crops in an instant.

32. Stable

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Oak Log, Trapdoors, and Sign.
  • Spruce Stairs, Slabs, and Trapdoors.
  • Dark oak slab, fence gate, and button.
  • Stone Bricks.

Horses, Donkeys, and Llamas are non-hostile mobs in the game that can be tamed and used as mounts and portable storage holders respectively. Once you have tamed these mobs, you’re required a place to house them.

Sure you can simply build a fence on an open piece of land and let them loose, but why not go for a proper Stable instead? It lets you give each animal its own room, and building the structure is as simple as constructing a barn and carving out individual stalls.

33. Water Wheel 

Minecraft Building Ideas

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Planks, Trapdoors, Stairs, and Fence.
  • Stone Brick, Slabs, and Stairs.
  • Prismarine.
  • Bone Block.

The Water Wheel is another cool Minecraft building idea that doesn’t serve an actual function by itself, but it does enhance the ambiance of its surroundings. It’s technically also a space that you can live inside if you want. As the name implies, Water Wheels should be built near a river or other similar bodies of water.

34. Modern House

Modern House

Required Materials:

  • Cobblestone Wall and Stone stairs.
  • White Concrete.
  • Jungle Wood Plank.
  • Black Concrete.
  • Light Blue Glass Pane.

In following the trend of a lot of Modern Houses, consider sacrificing the rustic feel of stone and wood for a sleeker look. Try using a lot of Quartz as the main material for the house. Also, instead of trying to add a lot of tiny details to its exterior, simply go for smooth surfaces and hard edges. Think in terms of what most people consider to be Modern designs, and model your furniture and interior with the same aesthetics.

35. Beach House

Beach house

Required Materials:

  • Oak Log, wood, planks, stairs, slabs, doors, and trapdoors.
  • Cobblestone and Stairs.

We’ve already explored a number of different waterfront homes on this list of cool building ideas, but now it’s time for the original beach house. And as the name suggests, this is a simple home built right next to the water. The distinction here is that a Beach House does not actually touch the water, whereas earlier entries did.

36. Desert House

Desert House
Desert House

Required Materials:

  • Smooth Sandstone, Blocks, Stairs, and Slab.
  • Spruce Slabs, Planks, and Stairs.

If the beach doesn’t work for you, how about making a house in the Desert instead? There’s a lot of sand and cactuses around, but water does become hard to come by. Still, it’s a unique type of environment that most players wouldn’t usually consider creating a house in.

37. Swamp House

Swamp House
Swamp House
  • Required Materials:
  • Spruce log, planks, stairs, slabs, and door.
  • Oak Stairs and Trap Doors.
  • Cobblestone, stairs, and walls.

The Swamp is another unique biome that most players will probably ignore. But it’s yet another place that will benefit from the Stilt house mentioned earlier in this list. All you actually have to do is put a house on some platforms to keep it on top of the water, and you’re done. Due to the abundance of Oak trees and vines, players can decorate their houses to match their surroundings easily. 

38. Greenhouse


Required Materials:

  • Spruce Planks, Slabs, and Stairs.
  • Glass Panes.

While playing in Survival mode, players often require different plants for a number of different things like creating Dyes or even Potions. And while you could technically store these plants in chests, why would you not want to build a Greenhouse instead?

39. Wizard Tower

Wizard Tower

Required Materials:

  • Stone and Stone Bricks, Stairs, and Walls.
  • Cobblestone and Bricks.
  • Mossy Cobblestone.
  • Spruce Logs, Planks, and Stairs.
  • White Terracotta.

Are you tired of making boring old houses that all look the same? Well, then you should start thinking about creating your own Wizard Tower, complete with all the quirks that come with it. And to start with, you first have to find yourself a nice little hill that has a good view. After that simply erect a tower, for which you can use numerous YouTube tutorials.

40. Koi Pond

Koi Pond
Koi Pond

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Oak and Oak Wood/Logs.
  • Acacia Planks.
  • Glowstone, Sand, and Grass Block.

I must admit, the title of this entry is a bit misleading. There are technically no Koi fish in the game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build a nice pool of water and fill it with some colorful fish. And besides, who’s gonna be able to tell the difference unless they’re standing right on top of the pond?

41. Kitchen


Required Materials:

  • Grey Concrete, Orange Concrete, and Andesite.
  • Bone Block.

A nice little kitchen space will go a long way in improving the atmosphere of a home. And if it also happens to be well organized, you can get your food prepared quickly and efficiently. A kitchen design can easily be added to an existing house, especially if there already happens to be space available.

42. Storage Den

Storage Den
Storage Den

Required Materials:

  • Oak Planks.
  • Dark Oak Planks and Stairs.
  • Lanterns.
  • Chests.

As you progress further and further in the game with Survival mode, you’ll accumulate a lot of different resources and blocks. Properly storing and categorizing them will take a lot of effort, but in the long run, this saves you from having to waste time when you have to find that one specific item. So a Storage Den always comes in handy. It’s one of the most essential builds that I’d personally recommend every survival Minecraft player to consider.

43. Forge


Required Materials:

  • Birch Slabs and Stairs.
  • Stone Bricks and Polished Andesite.
  • Chests.

Crafting better and higher quality weapons and armor is an integral part of the entire Minecraft Survival experience. So with this entry on our ideas list, we’ll talk about the Forge. This should be a dedicated space in your base where all of your gear crafting is done. It doesn’t have to look particularly good, but it always feels good to have a nice workshop anyway.

44. Armory


Required Materials:

  • Oak Wood.
  • Spruce Wood Planks.
  • Stone Bricks and Stone Slab.
  • Grass Blocks.

So what do you do with all of the armor and weapons you craft in your Forge? Well, you can always put them in storage chests where they’ll be completely hidden from view, or you can display them proudly in your personal Armory. This room or building doesn’t have to be anything fancy, it simply has to be an area that has enough space for a bunch of Armor Stands and Item Frames.

45. Alchemy Lab

Alchemy Lab

Required Materials:

  • Oak Log and Wood.
  • Spruce Slab and Planks.
  • Cobblestone.
  • Bricks.

Every alchemist requires their own personal lab, where they can experiment with ingredients and brew potions. And for exactly that reason, this current entry will explore the uses of an Alchemy Lab. Once again, this can be a standalone structure or a simple room designated for the purposes of Brewing.

Either way, the most important piece of this lab is the Brewing Stand, without which potions cannot be made. After that, you can populate the room with a bunch of Flower Pots containing useful plants and mushrooms, as well as chests containing monster parts and glass bottles.

46. Enchanting Room

Enchanting Room

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs, Planks, Slabs, and Stairs.
  • Bookshelves.
  • Enchantment Table.
  • Item frames.

After you craft your weapons in the Forge, you’re gonna want to enhance their properties by buffing them with powerful effects. And the easiest way to do exactly that is through the use of an Enchanting Table that is surrounded by Bookshelves. Simply put, you should have an Enchanting Room.

The whole construction process is extremely simple, all you require is a small room with at least 5×5 space to accommodate your enchanting setup.

47. Gatehouse


Required Materials:

  • Spruce Stairs and Planks.
  • Oak Planks.
  • Cobblestone.
  • White Concrete.

Bigger structures like Castles and Mansions are definitely cool to look at, but one of the best ways to improve their scale and grandeur is to also build a Gate House that leads to them. This structure acts as an impressive entrance, but it can also serve as a watchtower when required.

48. Town Hall

Town Hall
Town Hall

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Log and Stairs.
  • Concrete.
  • Stone Bricks.

If you’re playing the game with a bunch of friends and sharing a world together, then one small Minecraft building idea you should try out is the Town Hall. As the name suggests, this can be a communal area where all the different players can come together to talk and hang out.

49. Watchtower


Required Materials:

  • Stone Bricks Walls and Stairs.
  • Oak Slab, Stairs, and Trapdoors.
  • Dark Oak Planks, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Cobblestone, Stone, and Andesite.

Why settle for a makeshift Watchtower when you can actually build a proper one for yourself? There’s nothing too complicated about this structure, it’s basically a tall tower that provides a greater field of vision than what is possible from ground level.

50. Mine Entrance

Mine Entrance
Mine Entrance

Required Materials:

  • Oak Log, Stairs, and Slabs.
  • Cobblestone and Stairs.
  • Rail.

In our next entry on this cool Minecraft building ideas list, I would like to talk about Mine Entrances. These are best described as elaborate entrances for your mine. If you’re going to be spending most of your time in a game doing a particular activity, why shouldn’t the scenery at least look nice?

51. Mine Railway

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Stripped Logs, Trapdoors, and Stairs.
  • Rail.
  • Redstone.

Build a railway track inside a mine that goes down. We recommend doing it in a mine where you can farm some of the most essential resources so that you go down there often. Just build it in a cool zig-zag pattern, and it will be a fun ride down in a cart every time. It will work as a roller coaster of sorts. 

52. A Magical Library  

An Example Of How A Magical Library Should Look Like

Required Materials:

  • Oak Slabs, Planks, Stairs, and Trapdoors
  • Concrete.

Build a library that you and the villagers will hang out in but do not make a generic one go crazy here. Use chains to hang some of the bookshelves up in the sky, Do cool placements for furniture and shelves. Make it mystical and unique instead of a generic, run-of-the-mill library. 

Furthermore, think of something out of Harry Potter. Place some plants in specific spots to make the library look extra appealing and beautiful. The library might feel cluttered, but it will also feel unique and mystical.

53. Villager Houses & Tents

Villager houses in Minecraft
A Basic Villager home

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs, Slabs, and Stairs.
  • Cobblestone.

Go outside your main hub area. Walk a bit and start making tents or small houses for villagers. It will add a lot to the environmental storytelling and will also make your home look like many others surrounding it. These houses will make your world seem way more lively than it initially does.  

54. A Play Theatre

Minecraft how to build a theatre
A Huge Immersive Theatre

Required Materials:

  • Oak Slabs, Planks, and Stairs.
  • Red Carpet.
  • Cobblestone.

Since you can’t watch TV during the game, having a theatre will be the next best thing. We recommend that you build it in a closeby village. Being in the center will suit a theatre more and make it appealing. 

YouTube video

55. Butcher Shop

How To Meet the butcher Minecraft
The Basic Butcher Shop In The Game

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs, Planks, and Slabs.
  • Cobblestone.

You can also make a butcher shop. This one is a preadded design you might notice in multiple villages. However, if you’re making a town of your own then you can easily replicate it since it’s an easy build in Minecraft. You can even add and station a Butcher villager inside it.

YouTube video

56. Dojo On Cliff

Minecraft Japanese themed
An Example Of A Dojo

Required Materials:

  • Spruce, Oak, and Dark Oak (Logs, Slabs, and Stairs).
  • Stone Bricks.
  • Concrete.

If you have a house near a cliff, then we honestly can’t think of any cooler ideas than this. Simply climb the cliff and reach a high point where you can visibly see your village and everything near it. Now go ahead and start building a dojo. It will look straight out of a martial arts film and be very aesthetically pleasing. Imagine just climbing back up there and taking a look below the view would be priceless.

57. Outdoor Field

The Beat Of An Outdoor Field

Required Materials:

  • Oak Log and Slabs.
  • Spruce Planks and Stairs.
  • Item Frames.
  • Flowers.

We suggest that you dedicate a pretty big area to the fields themselves. Go ahead and make a big farmhouse-like area where you plant various crops and food items. Whenever you come back here to collect the materials it will always look beautiful and will feel like a reward for your labor. You can also make a beautiful pen for horses near the crops as it will only add to the outdoor fields.

58. Fancy Garden

A Small Fancy Garden

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Slabs and Planks.
  • Stone Bricks.
  • Leaves and Flowers.

There isn’t much that is more appealing than a beautiful fancy garden that is easily located and spotted in your Minecraft world. We recommend that you pick a spot in your village center and place the garden there and make it as beautiful as possible. You can go as creative as you can here and make it look like something outside of a Studio Ghibli film.

59. Damaged Structures

Examples Of Damaged/Broken Structures

Required Materials:

  • Dark Oak Logs.
  • Chests.
  • Glass Pane.

This one is purely to enhance the environmental storytelling aspect of your world; there is just so much you can do to improve it and we suggest that you go out there and after you have reached far way from your initial place start building small structures.

You can damage these and make it look like somebody destroyed them. It will add a lot to the world and you can also go the extra mile by even designing the place to look a bit grim from the start. 

60. Flower Fields

A Windmill Surrounded By A Flower Field

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs, Stairs, Slabs, and Planks.
  • Oak Stairs and wood.
  • Flowers.

Most of the players only plant crops and other resources that come in handy. If you are looking to build something just for visual spectacle then a beautiful flower field is one of the best options. There is a lot of variety in the flowers in the game; you can pick your favorite and start planting.

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Wood, Planks, Trapdoors, Fence.
  • Stone blocks and wall.
  • Mossy Cobblestone.
  • Blue tinted glass.

We’ve already added a Greenhouse earlier on our list, but this one stands out a little more than that one. The building idea was pitched on YouTube by Goldrobin. The Greenhouse is inspired by the Victorian architectural style. It’s quite big in size and will suit large town builds very well.

62. Giant Nether Portal

Required Materials:

  • Sandstone.
  • Chiseled Sandstone.
  • Smooth Sandstone.
  • Obsidian.

Beating Minecraft without going to the Nether is impossible. However, having bad nether spawns is quite common which pushes most of us to abandon our Nether portals and create another one elsewhere. Nevertheless, at one point you will come up with a good Nether spawn and you will use that portal throughout your playthrough. Once you find that final portal, it’s best to decorate it the best you can.

As it happens we have lined up this great Nether Portal idea by Goldrobin for you.

63. Magic Tower

Required Materials:

  • Cobbled Deepslate.
  • Deepslate Bricks.
  • Chiseled Deepslate.
  • Polished Deepslate.
  • Warped Planks, Slabs. Trapdoor.
  • Spruce Planks, Stairs, Fence.

What’s better than building a dark magical tower in the middle of a dense biome? If your main spawn point is next to a Jungle or a Dark Forest, you can easily go for this Wizard Tower which was shared by DiddiHD. Apart from its eerie look, the tower can be used as a great vantage point. You can easily get a full 360-view of the whole area by getting on top.

64. Fantasy House

Fantasy House [Image Credit: Minecraft Fantasy Builds]
Required Materials:

  • Stone.
  • Spruce logs, planks, stairs, slab.
  • Birch planks, stairs.
  • Smooth Redstone.

In addition to the Magic tower we mentioned earlier, the Fantasy House can complete your whole wizard/witch package in Minecraft. You can construct a house in the middle of any forest biome in the game. It is quite easy to build, therefore, any player who has clocked in a few hours in survival mode should feel comfortable with this project. Despite looking compact from the outside, the house (built by Minecraft Fantasy Builds) is quite spacious and cozy.

65. Apocalyptic Enderman Statue

Required Materials:

  • Deepslate.
  • Mud.
  • Pink Wool.
  • Purple Concrete.

There comes a time in Minecraft when you feel like you have achieved everything. At that point, you’ll most probably take on some outrageous build ideas. One of these ideas includes the Giant Enderman Statue shared with us by Goldrobin. The huge statue can be one of the most prolific builds in your world if you manage to pull it off.

66. Marketplace

Marketplace [Image Credit: GoldRobin]
Required Materials:

  • Spruce planks, slabs, fences, stairs.
  • Banners.
  • Item frames and chest.

As you play through your survival world in Minecraft, there will come a point where you will set up your own Villager’s hut or town. The reason behind that is to get important materials through trading. You can get all sorts of stuff like enchantments such as Mending or even Diamonds. Regardless of what your main aim is, you can opt to create a well-designed marketplace to hold all your villagers.

67. Medieval Mansion

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Spruce Log.
  • Spruce Planks, slab, stairs.
  • Smooth Sandstone.
  • Stone bricks.
  • Deepslate Tiles.
  • Dark Oak Stairs, slab, fence.

Generic and modern houses can get quite boring from time to time. It’s always a welcoming change to create something inspired by the Medieval era in Minecraft. The Medieval Mansion shown above was designed by NeatCraft. It’s a huge mansion with plenty of room which means that if you’re playing on an online server then you can build this house for yourself and your friends. 

68. Simple Bridge

Simple Bridge [Image Credit: WaxFraud]
Required Materials:

  • Spruce logs.
  • Spruce planks, stairs, fence, gates, trapdoors.
  • Campfires.
  • Lanterns
  • Deepslate tile wall.

The River biome is one of the most recurring areas in the Minecraft world. No matter what your map seed is, there are plenty of rivers and lakes that you’ll come across. Most of us will even have our main bases close to a river. If you’re on that same page, then you’d be fully aware of how tiresome it is to swim across the river every time you need something from the other side.

Therefore, to solve the particular inconvenience you can build a small and simple bridge. The bridge will add more flair to your base and will also make your life a lot easier. 

69. Medieval Bridge

large bridge design minecraft
Medieval Bridge [Image Credit: PjotreBuilds]
Required Materials:

  • Cobblestone.
  • Stone bricks, stairs.
  • Spruce wood, planks, stairs.
  • Oak logs, planks, stairs, slabs, fence, 

On the topic of bridges, it can also become necessary to build something on a larger scale. Or if you’re simply planning to enhance your base then you can even build a Big Medieval Bridge across two cliffs. The Medieval Bridge will also have two outposts on both ends, which can also serve as a quick safe spot while you’re planning for a journey in Minecraft.

As suggested by PjotreBuilds, make sure you first pick a valid spot that is capable of holding the Large bridge in Minecraft.

70. Round Farm

farm design minecraft
Round Farm [Image Credit: Disruptive Builds]
Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs.
  • Leaves and Vines.
  • Flowers.
  • Stone and Stone bricks.
  • Crops.

A rather easy build to aim for in Minecraft. If you happen to have a huge plain space then you can build the following farm design in your world. The aesthetic circular design will enhance the whole look of your base. On top of that, you can also add a central piece to the circular farm. Disruptive Builds decided to go for a giant tree in his tutorial. However, you can also choose to build a statue or a fountain instead.

71. Mine Entrance #2

mine design minecraft
Medieval Mine Entrance [Image Credit: Disruptive Builds]
Required Materials:

  • Stone bricks and walls.
  • Stone.
  • Oak logs, fence, trapdoor.
  • Campfire.
  • Lanterns.

Mining is an essential part of Minecraft, everybody knows that. You can’t simply progress the game without all the rare resources such as Diamond, Gold, and Iron. For that, you will need to create your own mine or use a passage to a cave. In both cases, you can choose to build an entrance to your mine to further increase your builds in the game. 

We already covered a Mine entrance earlier in our guide. However, this one (by Disruptive Builds) is a large-scale project.

72. Underwater Base

Required Materials:

  • Smooth Quartz block, slab, stairs.
  • Glass.
  • Oak planks.
  • Polished Blackstone Brick stairs.
  • Gray Concrete.
  • Prismarine Stairs. 

Earlier we mentioned a Minecraft building idea of an Underwater house. How about we amp that up a little now and help you out in creating an Underwater base instead? Yes, you heard that right! As shown by IrieGenie, you can also go for a whole underwater base that can hold all your needs. However, we will give you a fair warning that the underwater base build is extremely hard to pull off, especially without some good armor enchantments such as Aqua Affinity and Depth Strider.

73. Floating Japanese Base

Floating Japanese Base [Image Credit: Hakdow]
Required Materials:

  • Oak planks, slab, stairs.
  • Spruce stairs.
  • Acacia log, planks, slab.
  • Dark oak planks, stripped log, slab, stairs.
  • Polished blackstone bricks, slab, stairs.
  • Smooth Sandstone.

You can never go wrong with Japanese architecture in Minecraft. When players pull these build ideas off they fall second to none. Hence, we have lined up this beautiful Floating Japanese House design by Hakdow for you guys. The base is also well suited for Survival mode. Since the build will be on top of the water you can feel a lot safer since it will be harder for the mobs to get close. 

74. Japanese Store

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Oak wood.
  • Stripped Dark Oak wood.
  • Oak planks, stairs, slabs.
  • Blackstone slabs and wall.
  • Campfires, Banners, and Lanterns.

While we’re on the Japanese architecture train, here is another build idea that you can try in your Minecraft world. We would like to point out that this idea was created by an actual architect from Japan who goes by the name of “Freedom” on YouTube.

75. Cyberpunk Shop

Required Materials:

  • Polished Basalt.
  • Deepslate Bricks, stairs.
  • Grey Concrete.
  • Crimson Planks.

Next up on our list of the Best build ideas in Minecraft, we have a shop inspired by the art design of Cyberpunk 2077. If you’re free to build anything then why not go for a crossover that no one ever expected? Despite the problems with Cyberpunk, no one can deny that it had awe-inspiring buildings and shops in its world. Here is a quick video tutorial on how you can build it in Minecraft.

76. Beacon Tower

Beacon Tower [Image Credit: Mechitect]
Required Materials:

  • Beacon.
  • Polished Blackstone Bricks, Stairs, walls.
  • Iron/Gold/Emerald/Diamond Blocks.
  • Tinted Glass.

The beacon is one of the most useful items that players can get in Minecraft. However, it is also one of the hardest things to get. Once you do manage to create a Beacon, be sure to put it to good use and build a nice tower to complement it. You can do that by following this build idea by Mechitect (shown above). 

Beacons provide enhancements to the player inside a certain radius. In addition to that, they also emit a prominent beam upwards which can be seen from far away.

77. Simple Dock

easy dock tutorial minecraft
Simple Dock [Image Credit: Disruptive Builds]
Required Materials:

  • Dark Oak Logs, slabs, stairs, trap doors, fences, gates, and signs.
  • Stripped Spruce Wood.
  • Stone brick slabs and walls.

Unlike some of the other build ideas in our guide, a dock is always deemed as an essential structure in Minecraft. Therefore, you can use an easy build tutorial by disruptive builds to help you conjure up a small dock in your world. The Dock will add a little more elegance to your Minecraft world and on top of that, your travels across the ocean will become a lot easier.

78. Medieval Dock

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Spruce Logs.
  • Spruce planks, fence.
  • Stone.
  • Smooth Stone Slab.
  • Cobblestone, stairs, wall.
  • Dirt
  • Colored wool blocks.

You could always go a step further with every build in Minecraft, so why not do the same with a Dock build? If you’re looking for something more grandeur you can opt to go with this dock idea. The Medieval Dock build is also a great idea if your whole base is right next to a coast.

79. Trading Hall

trading hall design in minecraft
Trading Hall [Image Credit: Disruptive Builds]
Required Materials:

  • Spruce Log, slabs, stairs, trapdoor, fence gate.
  • Stripped Spruce wood.
  • Stone, stone stairs, and slabs.

Trading is an essential part of Minecraft survival mode. It can help you acquire all kinds of stuff that may not be available that easily for you in the open world. Even though players were skeptical about trading at first, now it’s one of the main elements of the game. 

There will come a point during your playthrough when you need to set up a proper villager trading hall in your base. A simple hut with a bunch of villagers inside can kill the whole look of your base. Therefore, get ready to implement this simple yet amazing-looking design by Disruptive Builds.

80. Compact Survival Base

Compact Survival Base [Image Credit: HellFrozen]
Required Materials:

  • Cobblestone.
  • Oak logs.
  • Stone bricks slabs, stairs.
  • Oak planks, stairs, fence, gate, trapdoors.

Next up we have another Survival-based project idea for our Minecraft builders. While playing the survival mode, every player tries to fit in all sorts of features within their house/base for their own convenience. However, without a proper plan, your base will become overcrowded and misaligned in no time. 

That is why it’s best to go for a well-thought-out Complete Survival Base that uses minimal blocks and fulfills almost every necessity a solo survival player needs. The full base (designed by HellFrozen) can be made within a 20×10 block area.

81. Dragon Statue

Required Materials:

  • Stone, slabs, stairs.
  • Cobblestone slabs, stairs.
  • Mossy Cobblestone.
  • Vines, leaves.

Once you’ve set up everything that is needed in your world, you can always sway your attention toward decorative builds. There are loads of different decorative builds you can try out in Minecraft. For instance, the famous Dragon Statue by thebigbaronDespite being a tough build, it surely is a sight to behold. It will be even better if you manage to pull off the build in an online server.

82. Skull Nether Portal

Required Materials:

  • Calcite.
  • Smooth Quartz Block, stairs, slab.
  • Diorite, wall, staits.
  • Black wool.
  • Cobbled Deepslate, stairs, wall.

Your entrance to the Nether should not be basic at all. If you’ve improved the look of your whole base then there is no reason to pull back when it comes to the Nether Portal. Nothing seems more cool than a Dragon’s skull, and once you combine it with a sword (we mentioned earlier) you get an amazing Portal design.

Hence, we have brought this particular Nether Portal design by Goldrobin, that you can implement in your Minecraft world.

83. Frog Fountain

Required Materials:

  • Blackstone blocks, stairs.
  • Stone blocks, stairs.
  • Dispenser.
  • Redstone torch.
  • Water Bucket.

The Frog Fountain might be one of the easiest builds in our building ideas guide. Despite being a small and simple build, it can easily improve the look of your pond or pool. You can even place the fountain at a random lake as a landmark. 

You can follow BitGardener’s video for a step-by-step guide.

84. Hobbit House

Required Materials:

  • Oak Planks, stairs, slabs, trapdoors.
  • Lanterns.
  • Dark Oak stripped log.
  • Dark Oak planks, stairs, slabs, 
  • Sand and Sandstone.

The great thing about Minecraft is that you can almost try every kind of build, even if it’s from a whole other franchise. Since there are millions of Lord of the Rings fans around the world, we found it worthy enough to include the Hobbit House build in our list. Basic houses, castles, etc can get a bit boring after a while. So why not go for something cozy like a Hobbit Hole for a change?

85. Medieval Tavern

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs.
  • Spruce planks, stairs, slabs, trapdoors, fences, and fence gates.
  • Stone Bricks, stairs, walls.
  • Diorite blocks, slabs, walls.
  • Deepslate tile blocks, stairs, slabs, walls.

Your Medieval Town in Minecraft will remain incomplete until you add a Tavern to it. Luckily, BigTonyMC shared a cool Tavern design that all survival players can try out in their world. Even if you don’t have a Mediaval-styled house or town, you can still construct the Tavern which can be used as a spot where all your online friends hang out.

86. Large Base

Required Materials:

  • Spruce Logs.
  • Spruce Stripped logs, planks, stairs, signs.
  • Dark Oak fences, doors, trapdoors.
  • Oak trapdoors.
  • Lanterns.
  • Glass panes.

As you progress through your Minecraft world, you will need the feel for a larger base. At that point, make sure you consider the particular Large Base build design by EWEN Minecraft. It has all sorts of functions and has a cool epic look to it. On top of that, if you have shaders turned on in Minecraft, this base will look beautiful at night in the middle of a forest.

87. Cottage

Required Materials:

  • Oak Logs, planks, stairs, slabs, trapdoors, fence.
  • White concrete.
  • Spruce trapdoors.
  • Birch fence.

If you’re planning to build your house inside a forest biome, then it’s worth going for a Cottage build. Croissant Cat’s cottage design on YouTube is one of the most famous ones, even though she uses a resource pack you can still go for it in the default game as well. Cottages are capable of giving that cozy homely vibes, especially in places deep inside the forests of Minecraft.

88. Eerie Nether Base

Required Materials:

  • Polished Blackstone Bricks, stairs, slabs.
  • Polished Basalt
  • Chiseled Polished Blackstone.
  • Chiseled Quartz Block.
  • Polished Diorite.
  • Warped Stem.
  • Warped planks, slabs, fence, trapdoor.

In Minecraft, the Nether is a treacherous land. It is nothing like the overworld, mobs spawn everywhere and you need to be on the lookout during your whole trip. With so much going on, it is essential to have a well-fortified Nether Base in Minecraft.

A Nether Base will allow you a much-needed break in the underworld. At the Nether base, you can relax, prepare, and take your time before heading out again.

89. Acacia House

Required Materials:

  • Acacia Logs.
  • Acacia planks, stairs, fence, trapdoors, buttons, slabs.
  • Andesite blocks, wall.
  • Lanterns.
  • Campfire.

Acacia trees are not that common in Minecraft, however, if you happen to have a Savanna biome close by then chances are that you’ll have a good supply of these orange-shaded trees. With them, you can craft a unique house in Minecraft. As we already know, Oak and Spruce’s woods are used more frequently in builds. Hence, it’s always nice to have a change and go for an Acacia House design in Minecraft.

90. Jungle Base

Jungle Base [Image Credit: Reimiho]
Required Materials:

  • Jungle Logs, planks, slabs, stairs, trapdoors, fence.
  • Stripped Jungle Logs.
  • Spruce planks, slabs.
  • Cobblestone slabs, wall.

The jungle is one of the densest biomes in Minecraft. The trees here are extremely large and you can easily lose your track if you stray too long. However, despite its unwelcoming features, there is still a great comfort player feel while inside the Jungle. If you’re one of those bases then why not go for an Ultimate Jungle Base? 

So here is a Jungle Base Minecraft building idea. Before we begin, we would like to point out that the Jungle Base (designed by Reimiho) is an extensive and time-consuming build. Therefore, it is advised that you construct the base with the help of your friends on an online server.

YouTube video


91. Jungle Treehouse

Jungle Treehouse [Image Credit: Mr Mirror]
Required Materials:

  • Jungle logs, planks, stairs, slabs, trapdoors, fences, and gates.
  • Leaves.

If the previous Jungle Base build was a little too much for you then you can go for something on a smaller scale. Such as this particular Jungle Treehouse design made by Mr Mirror. The Jungle Treehouse is a compact build suited for a single player. Although, since it is compact the design can become a little small after a while. Therefore we would advise you to treat it as your secondary base.

92. Underwater Cave House

Required Materials:

  • Smooth Quarts Block, stairs.
  • Spruce planks, 
  • Stripped Spruce logs.
  • Light Grey Concrete.

It is always an intriguing thought to construct an underwater base. Despite the tough conditions of the build, underwater houses are a lot safer than the ones on land. They are safe from creeper explosions. Apart from that, you also get to feel the calm of fish and dolphins swimming by. If you happen to have a coral reef near the location then the view will be even better!

93. Bubble Elevator

Required Materials:

  • Solid blocks (any block).
  • Water bucket.
  • Kelp.
  • Soul Sand (Up).
  • Magma Block (Down)

Elevators were one of the most amazing builds in Minecraft a few years ago. People used tons of redstone mechanics and built elevators using slime blocks and sticky pistons. However, these were a little too tough to make, plus they weren’t fast enough. So as time went by players then came up with a more convenient water elevator.

The water or the Bubble Elevator is extremely simple to make. On top of that, you can easily go up or down through the elevator within a matter of seconds.

94. Mountain Tunnel

Tunnel [Image Credit: WaxFraud]
Required Materials:

  • Deepslate bricks, stairs, and walls.
  • Spruce logs, planks, stairs
  • Lanterns.

Since the Caves and Cliffs update the mountains in Minecraft are a lot more common and larger. Even though they enhance the game’s environment by a lot but with time it gets a little tedious to trek over them. Mountains can be even more troublesome when your base is situated within a cliffs area. Hence, a great way to tackle that is to make an actual tunnel that cuts through a mountain which will ultimately make your life simpler.

The tunnel design was shared by WaxFraud. However, you do not need to follow the same dimensions, you can carry out the build at a smaller scale too.

95. Slope House

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Oak Logs.
  • Oak planks, trapdoors, stairs.
  • Glass blocks.
  • Quartz stairs, slabs.

96. Cherry Blossom Treehouse

Required Materials:

  • Cherry Logs.
  • Cherry planks, slabs, stairs, fence.
  • Stripped Cherry Logs
  • Crimson slabs, stairs.
  • Nether Bricks slabs.

Mojang has added an all-new biome called the Cherry Groves. LeonSBU was kind enough to share his unique Cherry Blossom Treehouse design.

The house is extremely easy to make, especially if you manage to find a Cherry Grove biome. In the new biome, collect as many Cherry Logs as you can. Because most of the building uses the new Cherry planks, stairs, and fence. Other than that you can also add 

97. Mining Camp

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Spruce logs.
  • Spruce planks, fence, fence gates, trapdoors, slabs.
  • Stone bricks, stairs
  • Cobblestone blocks, walls.
  • Rails and Minecart.

In our guide, we included a bunch of builds that revolved around Mining. Every player knows how important mining is in the game. Hence, if you manage to find a good mining spot then make sure you turn it into a convenient station that will make mining easier and also enhance the look of your Minecraft world.

The Mining Camp shown above was designed by Reimiho and it is surely worth checking out.

98. Brewing Station

Required Materials:

  • Stripped Spruce Logs.
  • Spruce planks, stairs, slabs, and trapdoors.
  • Stone slabs, stairs, wall.
  • Lanterns.
  • Brewing Stand.

At first, players may think that potion brewing is an unnecessary activity in Minecraft. However, if you truly wish to beat the game or get an advantage over your friends in online servers, you’ll understand how overpowered some of the potions are. Hence, it is essential to have a fully dedicated Brewing Station in your Minecraft Base.

Luckily, we have decided to share a simple yet effective Brewing Station (designed by Reimiho) where you can grow relevant crops and make potions.

99. Maze

Maze [Design by ADRIAN BOSS]
Required Materials:

  • Shovels.
  • Torches.
  • Any solid block.

Minecraft shouldn’t just be about mining, building, and hunting. You can always add an element of fun to the game by letting your creativity run free. A Maze is something that has been enjoyed by Minecraft players for years now and the best thing about it is it’s extremely easy to build. This particular build is more suited for players who play with their friends or other players online.
