[Top 15] Minecraft Best House Designs That Are Awesome

Minecraft House
The most important aspect of Minecraft is the home you build. You'll use this for safety, storage and more, so please for the love of Minecraft please don't use dirt.

In Minecraft’s history, a majority of gamers have played the game and gone through the infamous first night, most likely creating some poor excuse of a house in the shape of a hole in the ground or the side of a mountain. This then leads to the ramshackle hut composed of dirt, gravel, stone, or any other material one can get their hands on cheaply. Below, you’ll find some talented Minecrafters who have moved past these huts and created some beautiful homes which will hopefully inspire you to create your own masterpieces.

15. Mountain House

Nestled in the mountains is this beautiful home that pops right out of some fantasy world.

With the recent mountain update to Minecraft, of course we need to showcase a beautiful home nestled within the mountains. This house by TheMysticalSausage combines beautiful design with functionality by having separate rooms dedicated to farming, raising cows, and of course, storage. The creator first showcases the house with awe-inspiring timelapse of the build before finally walking through the house explaining the thought process behind the design, including why you want to sleep next to a cowpen.

  • Comes stocked with villagers to do your bidding.
  • When you decide to leave, you can say you literally moved mountains.
