What materials are needed to build a house?

Before starting with the guide you should keep in mind that you will need to different materials and we will tell you how to get all the ones you need to build your house, and we also inform you that you can build an amazing modern concrete house in Minecraft


To get the wood you have to search the trees and extract it from the logs using an ax. It is recommended that when trees are cut down, the stems that you harvest are replanted and thus you will have wood whenever you need it and avoid deforestation.

Now that you have the logs, you have to convert them into wooden planks, for this you have to enter your inventory by pressing the E key, and once inside you can locate 4 empty spaces at the top, you have to place the trunks in any of the boxes and you will be able to take out the boards.


You will need a work table, to create it you need to place four wooden planks in the empty spaces above your inventory. You will also need an ax which you can make by placing on the work table in the spaces 5 and 8 wooden sticks and in spaces 2, 3 and 6 wooden planks.

You will also need an oven, so you should go to the work table and fill in the gaps with stone, except for the square in the middle and that's it.

How to build a wooden house step by step?

Using wood is the easiest way to build your home while in survival mode, as if you are creative you will have unlimited materials at your disposal and you will only have to give free rein to your imagination and you can even create a trap to defend your home in Minecraft .

Some of the easiest blocks to collect are those of wood, stone and brick, however the latter two are more solid materials so if you don't have a pickaxe, it will take a little longer to extract them. Let's see what are the steps to follow to easily build a house in Minecraft.

Step 1

The first thing you should do is find the correct biome, we recommend that it be a biome where there is a balance between the amount of available resources and food, for example, grassland and forest biomes that have enough water.

These will allow you to have at your disposal resources, caves and animals to eat. Avoid desert biomes, frozen tundra and rainforest, as they lack resources and food and are more dangerous, however you can easily find good villages and biomes in Minecraft.

Step 2

Since you already have the biome you will live in, you should look for a preferably high place, such as a mountain or a hill, to build your home. If I'm not here mountains nearby, you should make the base of your house at least two blocks high by using blocks of earth.

3 pass

Now you can start building your house on the basis you made with the earth in step 2. We recommend making the walls 5 × 5 and 4 blocks high, as if you have to build it quickly it won't take a lot of time or resources. And looking up you can place the ceiling with the same boards.

4 pass

Now you need to look for the sand that you can find near the water so that you can make crystals and make windows. To do this, you need to put the sand in the oven and also put the wood so that it can cook and create the glass blocks. These blocks can be placed east to west on the center line of the wall.

5 pass

Now you just have to build a door that you can make using the work table. You need to fill in two vertical rows of wood and you will get a door to enter and exit your house. And that's it, you will already have a house to live in.
