Top Ten Things to Build a Minecraft House Out Of


The Top Ten

1 Wooden Planks

Easy to obtain and you get 4 planks for one block I always build out of these

This the easiest way to make a house in survivor mode, just the bad thing is it burning down if a fire happens - trains45

Looks beautiful for your first house

Really bad because if you have a fire it will burn down!

2 Cobblestone

It looks good with certain themes I like it

The best

Cobblestone is durable and easy to obtain. Obsidian is too hard to mine and wood is too easy to be destroyed by griefers. I recommend 3 block layers, so creepers can't get you.

Looks really cool, like a medieval fortress. It can be found just about anywhere and the furnace looks like part of the building!

3 Obsidian

Really hard to obtain, but alas you can always get it in the end. In fear of the ender dragon, place water on the side of a pillar and dig so you get under the island. Build your house there!

While obsidian is the one of the strongest materials and looks really good, it takes forever to mine enough, even for a 4 by 4

Well obsidian is nice how about glow stone is it okay

Obsidian is strong against TNT so I would built my house out of obsidian

4 Giant Mushroom

I love making my house in creative mode with mushrooms especially the red mushrooms because they stand out and look unique.

Fun and looks coolio! - HollyRolo

You can actually make a house by taking a red dotted mushroom and using bone meal on it to make a giant mushroom thing. add platforms until the inside is completely dark and covered, then make a 2-block vertical space for your door, then add torches.

Hands down, most under rated building material.

5 Quartz

Very clean, and looks modern. Perfect for futuristic houses

A very helpful tip about the nut helped me out A LOT!

This is good

Such an underrated matrial, plus it is white so my nut will be camoflauged and I wont have to clean up

6 Leaves

Just build your house in a tree. No mobs can get to you, free wood, nice view. Works especially well in Roofed Forest.

You can see like a boss!

...leaves? What a great idea... not. - Hermione_Granger220

Keep dem fires a burnin - HollyRolo


A herobrinic(the satanic for Minecraft) house to show herobrine that You don't hate him - Nateawesomeness

8 Stone

It reminds me of the good times in caves, lugging back diamonds and redstone. On the flip side, it is dark and intimidating for any player to set foot near it.

It is cool because it is smooth and really awesome cause it wont set on fire. Only one problem, It gets blown up if you use tnt.

Annoying to smelt but looks fairly good. - HollyRolo

At least it gives a plain grey colour for industrial builds. - MChkflaguard_Yt

9 Bedrock

I did before in creative mode and once I had a creeper blow up by it and I only had to add the windows and door again and a few torches - trains45

I love to use bedrock but one problem... I always get locked in side

And I can't get out. HELP!

Haha! Take that you creepers! You'll never get me!

If you do it in creative, than switch to survival, NO TNT OR CREEPERS WILL GET YOU!

10 Diamond

The best way to show why you are a boss...

It's actually bad because if it gets destroyed then you will have to get diamond blocks again. I would rather use wooden planks, cobblestone, or dirt.

I chose a diamond house because I really think that it would be a good idea for a house. I’m not sure if my house is going to explode so technically I’m 50 50 with the diamond house.

Best block to use because all the others will know to stay away from you!


The Contenders

11 Chests

Awesome. make a house to store stuff

Be the boss, think like a pro

Hoarders' dream - Kaboom

Only one problem,you can't put chests on top of chests - Nateawesomeness

12 Bricks

That's what I usually do!

I do sometimes in creative mode - trains45

Yep - Pokemonfan10

Come On Brick Don't Really Get A Use In Minecraft So I Would Use As A Building Material For A House

13 Fences

I don't know why bit it's a great survival alternative to iron bars

I did that before. Spiders can get over it.

Lots of peep holes I guess? - HollyRolo

14 Stone Bricks

Stone Bricks have the best textures in all of Minecraft. It blends in with smooth stone perfectly, it has a bunch of variants, and it just have an overall coziness to them.

I always like building houses out of stone bricks. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Good for building cool castles

Looks epic in mansions

15 Snow

It looks futuristic and awesome

You can't place torches in a snow house.

Modern and Edgy just don't put it near lava

Nice, but you can't place torches, but why isn't there pillars?

16 Dirt

I did this at first time I ever played minecraft I remember I made my first ever house in minecraft, I remember not knowing how to make a door and bed and stuff and I got killed by a skeleton at night couldn't find it again - trains45

Just don get dat green top doe

Using rare materials and wood would be wasting. Dirt is perfect: you seem humble, it is plentiful, meaning you can easily rebuild, it is immune to lava, etc.

You can put the dirt house with some farm stuff on top of it its awesome

17 Bookshelves

Lol remember making a house out of bookshelves when I was bored before - trains45

This is for the teachers

Perfect house for a booknerd like me!

It won't be a house thoughO_O,it will be a library - Nateawesomeness

18 Butter (Gold)

If butter is gold then can I eat gold?
Ok seriously Skydoesminecraft fans please stop saying butter, its annoying.
Not being a hater, also at least one person can agree. - lolingdog9000

Its not butter, it's Gold!

I knew butter would show up sooner or later- but I wasn't expecting this early!

Is the best one I use!

19 Jack-O-Lanterns

No. Who came up with this?

Very lit up and Halloweeny - HollyRolo


20 Melon

Free melon!

Melons are dope

21 White Stained Clay

Perfect color

Italian Villa I can imagine it

It looks exactly like paint indoors - Harri666

Now White Terracotta for me cause my minecraft updated

22 SSundee

Literally just realized that by SSundee, they mean cobblestone. I was confused for a minute.

"I Love Cobble"- SSundee

So I build a SSundee statue and turn the inside to my house - MChkflaguard_Yt

Voted because all the other choices sucks

23 Doors

No house without stones

Without doors some Mobs can easily step into your house.

24 Cheese

Except that cheese isn't in Minecraft.

No I do not have your hat but I do have cheese!

They mean sponge

Its Sponge Not Cheese - ChipTheGamer

25 TNT

yes - Pokemonfan10

If you touch your tnt house it will blow up!

People can blow you up

I don't really recommend this block because some greifers might use flint and steel on this block.

26 Nether Brick

Its good it will make you look like a nether boss.

Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, the Nether is easy to access, you only need flint,iron,water,and lava. Once you reach the Nether, netherrack is plentiful and easy to smelt.

27 Glass

I did once when I was bored and another time when I made a green house - trains45

I built an underwater house of glass on one of my worlds. It was so cool! - Hermione_Granger220

Looks so good in water


28 Dragon Eggs

These are so powerful!

Dragon eggs are
the man!

29 Sandstone

I remember making few sandstone houses in a sky village I made, villagers use all the houses - trains45

Looks really nice together.

Sandstone is the best~

30 Heads

Heads will roll...

Come on its cool

31 Purpur

Purpur is for me not for you I like the end don't change my mind just use it I love IT

Purpur is the single most greatest block and all who say otherwise can kill themselves

32 Ice

So see through and awesome but it's weak and you crash into the walls...

THE BEST with Quartz

Maybe packed ice... but you can’t put torches with normal ice. - Hermione_Granger220

33 Ore

NO people will just mine your house and get free diamonds, emeralds, iron etc

34 Crafting Tables

I tried once but it very hard to add a crafting table top of a crafting table, because it always activating the crafting table when I try adding another crafting table on top - trains45

Crafting wherever you are.

35 Sponge


Sponges r lit

36 Haybales

It would work at least its protection

37 Gold/butter

It's already on the list, to whoever added this. - Minecraftcrazy530

See my comment on the diamond I'm too lazy to write it again

38 Anvils

Aren't anvils TNT resistant?

39 Iron

So light plus you can duplicate when you run out

40 Wool

This be the worst probably burn if it got hit by lightning or something - trains45

I always use this. I will use either light blue or red. Either will do, but now I use light blue. The ceiling is sea lanterns, the roof is quartz slab, the floors are birch planks, and the doors are dark oak doors - Goatworlds

Not every strong but you can make patterns with it

I say yea because you can be protected
