Minecraft is a uber-popular game that was released back in 2009. Up to this day, it remains one of the more popular sandbox games in history. It’s all thanks to its solid gameplay, creation engine, and its amazing community.


In order to survive in the game, one of the first things that you need to do is to build a house. The most basic type of houses are built from wood and stone which are found by harvesting.

But Why Settle For Something Basic?


The beauty of Minecraft is that you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to the things that you can build. Today, we’re going to share some awesome Minecraft house ideas to help you build a house of your
dreams.

The 8 Best Minecraft House Ideas

We’ve searched the web and found some of the best ideas for building your next house in Minecraft.

House On The Water

House On The Water

Who says that you can’t build a house over the water? With some careful planning, you can definitely build a house over bodies of water. The house is divided into many different sections and is connected with sky bridges. With enough creativity and careful planning, you can make something like the beautiful Château de Chenonceau. Truly awe-inspiring.

Survival House

Survival House

In Minecraft, you can’t just build a house. If you want, you can build a home that’s actually self-sustainable and guaranteed to help you survive – a survival house if you will. A redditor named More-Reasons has managed to build something exactly like that – a self-sustainable house complete with its own livestock farm, vegetation garden, cobblestone paths, bridges, and many other cool stuff. It helps that the house itself looks great and feels cozy.

House On A Bridge

House On A Bridge

Want a house that belongs in a quirky fantasy Miyazaki-esque movie?
Sounds like an ill-advised idea but it’s possible to create a house over a bridge. It still functions like an actual bridge but passers-by will have to go through your house. It really does look gorgeous and out of this world.
According to the author Dr_Bond, he had to use a few shaders and texture packs to achieve the look. 

Western-Canadian Style House

You just can’t go wrong with a house over a lake. This Western-Canadian style house by redditor Karl_with_a_C is definitely a thing to behold. We are especially a fan of the stone pillars and the well-made foundation. It really gives off a million-dollar lake house vibe. As with many houses featured here, the author used several texture packs and modes in order to achieve this amazing look. 

Cozy Winter Cabin

Cozy Winter Cabin

If you’re usually dealing with brutal winters in your area, this is the house that might just be for you.


This cozy winter cabin by Ogthellama features a very interesting architecture, almost Asian inspired. But also, it almost looks like a house you’ll come across in Skyrim. The slope of the roof should be great for efficient snow removal and prevent accumulation. Very interesting design and should be a good Minecraft home during the winter. 

A-Frame House

A-Frame House

This A-Frame house by redditor Lonnie_Mack features a truly wild design.
Aside from the interesting architecture, the house has its own indoor garden which is a nice touch. There’s are also a stable and port underneath which is great for survival. It’s a really well-done house and the author has
fortunately put out a detailed tutorial album in case you want to create a similar house.

Corner House

Corner House

When it comes to Minecraft house ideas, going big isn’t always better.
Redditor crpeh has created a truly amazing corner house that oozes European charm. It’s by far not the largest house that we have featured here but it’s definitely one of prettiest. The craftsmanship is simply off the charts. As mentioned in the comments, the author has achieved the effect with a few renders and texture packs.

Modern House

Modern House

There is no shortage of modern houses in Minecraft and we like to think that we have found the best one. Author pixelthec has created a jaw-dropping modern house that I could swear exists in real life. It looks like an
elegant and real modern house that’s worth millions of dollars. This one seems to be heavily inspired by YouTube creator Keralis. If you want to achieve this look, you will want to download the Flow’s HD resource
pack.
