What materials to use

Before I start talking to you about how to build a tree house in Minecraft, it is important, for my part, to indicate which materials could be useful for the realization of this project.

Since the construction of this building must be carried out on a tree, the material you can use is the wood. You can choose any variety of wood, such as the Oak tree, L’fir, the Birch, L’acacia or the jungle trees.

Actually any material could be used for the realization of the project but, in my guide, I will use the wood, as it is the material that comes closest to the general idea of ​​a tree house.

The tool used to quickly collect wood is theax, which you can manufacture in one Work station using 2 units of sticks is 3 units of another specific material: to make awooden ax, use some wooden boards; to make astone ax you can use the rubble; for the iron axes or gold you can use i ingots of these specific materials, while to create adiamond ax you can use i diamonds.

Through the ax, you can collect all the wood you need. Consider that I would need a large amount of wood and products derived from this resource to build the tree house.

Interacting on a tree with aax, you will collect i blocks of logs, which are indispensable for building all the other resources you will need. THE trunks they could also be useful for beautifying the tree by adding new branches.

In addition, using the shears, you can collect the foliage of the trees, to use it as a decoration on the tree and any branches you build. To build some shears, uses 2 units of iron ingots in a Work station.

To build the house, you must also get some wooden boards, which you can get from processing the blocks of trunks in a Work station. The axes you will need them for build a door or some trapdoors to enter the house. You can manufacture the latter using 6 units of wooden boards in a Work station.

Finally, to reach the tree house you will need the ladders, which are obtained by using 7 units of sticks in a Work station. Finally, you can also use the glass, to create large windows.

The first step to take to build a tree house in Minecraft is to look for a tree suitable for the purpose. In general, you can use any tree to build a house on top of it. In my guide, however, I have chosen to use the jungle trees, as they are very tall and with a robust trunk.

On jungle trees it would not be necessary to build one ladder to reach the house, as the trunk is covered with creepers which can be used for climbing. You can still build a ladder to be erected on the trunk of the tree until you reach the top, removing the creepers if you deem it appropriate.

Arrived at this point, taking advantage of the creepers or the ladder, reach the top of the tree and start placing the wooden boards, in order to create the basic structure of the house. I recommend: leave the space of a free block where the staircase is located, in order to guarantee access to the building.

Once this is done, along the perimeter of the base, position the wooden boards in order to build the walls. I remind you to leave the space to place one door and some large windows, so that you can enjoy the panorama that surrounds you.
