Top Ten Things to Build a Minecraft House Out Of


The Top Ten

1 Wooden Planks

Easy to get and build with (be careful of nearby lava and people setting fire to it though! ). - HollyRolo

When you are in survival and you want to make wooden planks, just cut the trunks of the trees and then go to the crafting table and they give you 4 wooden planks.

It has it all, from a framing block, slabs and stairs, a wall block (fences), a similarly-colored glass block, and wood is my favorite block to use! Aside from a mixture of snow/quartz - SoaPuffball

2 Obsidian

The first half of the year and I have a great way of saying it would mean so so happy to see my tweets and you have a good time with you guys have to go back and I love it and it was not immediately available to all of them in my head and a great way of saying it would mean so so happy to see my tweets and you

How is wooden planks better then this an obsidian house shows you've collected enough diamonds and its immune to fire and explosions very safe from grinders and a wooden house looks terrible and burns easily I would rather make my house out of dirt

My house is made out of obsidian and its damn cool haha those creepers can't get me now

The stuff inside can still go boom, beware. - Kaboom

3 Cobblestone

My house has cobblestone walls and a cobblestone roof. I really like cobblestone and would (literally) trust it with my life - rushing into the house just before a creeper detonates if need be.

I always build my houses out of cobblestone. I like to use stone bricks for the floor!

Cobblestone is strong and cannot be burnt down, it also looks nice as well. Probably the item after wood that you have the most of

I usually build with cobblestone on the 4 edges and just wooden planks on the sides. It's really pretty too and in villages.

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. - SomeRandomStickboy

5 Quartz

Good to build your house out of. So basically, If a player tries to fight you in Minecraft, they will probably think twice after all that Quartz you have, because you can only find that in the NETHER.

It looks really nice and modern

Quartz is the best block ever although somewhat hard to get it looks modern so it is better than wood a lot

Every time you build a modern stuff you need to use this definitely - MChkflaguard_Yt

Actually I'd rather have people make things of snow. Vanilla quartz = tiled - SoaPuffball

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!


Yeah, this would be like a treehouse without wood! You don't need to build, gather, and always wake up to a beautiful sunrise! But you will have to get down to kill animals unless you go to some other trees and live off apples. No mobs can attack you and you can just make a huge world in the trees.

7 Netherrack

Good if you want a fireplace, an touch or A HOUSE FROM HELL! Any of these things.

Keep dem fires a burnin - HollyRolo


Eww... Netherrack? By itself, it looks like a blob of uncooked meat! Even if it were used to create a "House From Hell" it would look disgusting. It's only purpose is so that fire can infinitely burn.

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

Looks good for midieval builds and easy to get.

9 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.

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

Eww. Diamonds.

(Before you rage I do like diamonds (my thumbnail is Diancie, who is the Diamond Pokémon in the game Pokémon, and mighe even go as far as retexturing the diamonds pink), but diamonds for a house is ugly. Don't recommend) - SoaPuffball

10 Bedrock

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!

I can add a pressure plate and Iron door and it withstands so many attacks!

12 Bricks

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

They used them for brick pyramids but then those pyramids were removed

I have a city in multiplayer out of bricks

It will look like my house - Nateawesomeness

13 Fences

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

14 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

I love snow way more than anyone does.
I am a crazy snow lover. - snowSNOW

15 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

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

It's gold. But it is a good way to show off, you can make golden apples any time and because golden ore drops itself, it will not be as ugly as diamond houses. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Its not butter, it's Gold!

17 Dirt

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

Why it's so low is because dirt is for champions.

You will look like a noob - MChkflaguard_Yt

Good for building cool castles

Looks epic in mansions

They look so cool

19 Jack-O-Lanterns V 3 Comments
20 Cheese

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

Except that cheese isn't in Minecraft.

They mean sponge
