Minecraft House Ideas | Keeping it simple

Wooden Survival House

If you want to keep it simple and practical, then the Wooden Survival House is the way to go.

You can also fill the house with different traps if you want to stay safe from your enemies. If this interests you, you can find out how to build it using the YouTube tutorial from WiederDude Tutorials.

One Chunk Wooden House

As you can see in the picture below, Reddit user Atenon build what is called a “one chunk” house. If you are unfamiliar with what a “chunk” is, it is essentially a 16×16 block plot. So, “one chunk” is equal to one 16×16 space. The one chunk wooden house is four stories, with three floors and a basement. Due to the openness of this design on the top three floors, if you go for this design you’ll want to put all of your chests in the basement. As you can see, the top three floors are very open due to the large glass windows. If you fill it with chests it’ll look cluttered and unorganized. However, filling the basement with your loot will allow for the top floors to be used for a nice, modern design.
