I am sure that, at the end of the reading, you will have clear ideas on the subject and you will be ready to build a villa to be envied! All I have to do is wish you a good read and, above all, have fun!

Which materials to choose

Building a villa on Minecraft is an operation that requires a lot of time and patience, as well as many materials to collect. In this regard, the choice of materials must be done carefully, to build a resistant building in the event that creatures come near, which could damage it. For example, a creeper is a creature that causes damage from explosions: making a villa out of wood or less resistant materials can cause breaches in the perimeter, risking that the house becomes unsafe.

For the reasons set out above and considering that a villa must also be a beautiful building to look at, a compromise must be sought between style and utility, to avoid having wasted a lot of time and energy unnecessarily.

The wood is a material that is not advice for building a house, unless you’re trying to build an inner lining of the rooms with this resource. The wood, although easily available even with bare hands from the surrounding trees, is a weak material against explosions and flammable. To make wooden blocks, you need wooden planks , which are created in turn by placing the wooden or log units in the manufacturing box, located in the inventory.

The stone blocks , on the other hand, are the ones I recommend you use, because they are easy to find, as they are scattered all over the game world. They are obtained by working the crushed stone inside a furnace, using any source of fuel. It is a non-flammable resource and has decent explosion resistance.

Another material that can be useful to you, especially on an aesthetic level, is sandstone . This resource has the color of sand and can be used to decorate elements of the facade of the villa. The sandstone is obtained from four sand units worked in a workbench and turns out to be a little resistant material.

However, you can create sandstone slabs by combining four blocks of sandstone, which will have, as a property, a resistance comparable to that of stone. However, the size of a slab is half that of a block, so you will need to overlap it, thus requiring many more resources than expected.

In addition to the materials indicated, there are bricks , which can be built with stone or clay . They look pleasant to the eye and can be used as external cladding of the facade of the villa, thanks also to their remarkable resistance to explosions.

While the stone is found everywhere and is worked from the crushed stone, the clay is found in the depths of the waterways. By putting the clay in a furnace, bricks are made ; four brick units inside a workbench generate a block of bricks , useful for your purposes.

Another material, also resistant, is concrete . The blocks built with this material are shiny, with a color that can vary, depending on the colorant that is used. To get concrete blocks, you need to get four gravel units and four sand units , along with one dye unit .

When these resources are put together on a workbench, a block of concrete dust is created . The latter, however, is a very fragile block and must be further worked: take a bucket of liquid, such as water , and pour it on the positioned blocks, to immediately transform them into concrete blocks .

Furthermore, in addition to the materials I told you about in the previous lines, there is one that is instead resistant to any explosion and that can perhaps be used as a layer between the internal and external coating of the external walls of the villa: the obsidian .

This resource is obtained by pouring water on the lava, so as to generate it instantly. By using a diamond pickaxe, it is possible to extract the blocks made of this material.

Finally, to complete this chapter regarding construction materials, I tell you that you will need different resources based on the decorative elements with which you want to furnish the villa, as you will certainly place bookcases, beds, structures for the production and processing of materials and much more.

With the latest versions of Minecraft, being able to create an object is no longer a problem: when you open, for example, the workbench , you are shown the recipe book with all the possible projects you can carry out, based on the resources available.

What I recommend is to rely on the Italian Wiki dedicated to Minecraft , where you can find lots of information on building materials, in addition to the projects you can make in this video game. If you are a novice of Minecraft or you are going to buy the game and you are here just out of curiosity to know if it is possible to build a villa in the latter, I recommend you read my guide on how to play Minecraft .

Building a villa

After you’ve got to get an idea of ​​what the materials for building a villa on Minecraft can be, it’s time to take action.

The first step you must take is definitely not to go far from the birth point, or immediately build a small house, in which to place a bed , which will represent the new birth point, in case you lose all the life points of the avatar.

Once this is done, it is necessary to make work tools , using a bench, such as picks, shovels and any other useful tool to collect the necessary materials as quickly as you will need a lot.

Use the trunks to conserve the resources you collect from time to time and, in case the villa construction project requires materials to be created in the furnace, put them in process while you are out looking for new resources.

What I advise you is not to be in a hurry for the construction of the villa, because it is a project that will take some time. Above all, do not think that you will be able to do everything in one day, because it will be difficult for you: take breaks and plan your work over several days: it will be worth it and it will benefit you in good health.

That said, start clearing the area where the villa is built. It will certainly be of considerable size, but probably a 20 × 20 area may already be more than enough. Then start to create the perimeter of the villa, starting from the foundations, placing only the first line of blocks, so as to get an idea of ​​the dimensions and the project itself.

After you have defined the rooms, the accesses and all that the villa must have, start pulling up the external walls. If the building you intend to build were to be developed on several floors, remember to prepare the space for an internal staircase. Then build a roof until you finish building it.

I recommend you to build iron doors for external access, perhaps using pressure platforms to prevent them from remaining open. Do not create large windows that face the outside, because the glass is very weak and could frustrate all your efforts, because the enemies could easily destroy it, thus accessing the building.

Furthermore, one must be careful to place light sources, such as torches , inside each room, to make the villa bright, even during the construction phase. Often Minecraft spawns creatures in dark places and, of course, you wouldn’t want to face enemies to fight.

Finally, a villa is not such if not cared for in the details: it creates interiors with beautiful materials, also using glass sheets and panels. In addition, it also creates an outdoor garden, creating well-kept green areas and perhaps even a swimming pool. Finally, embellish the facade with elements such as bricks or slabs that can make the building very pleasant from the outside.

Useful tips for building a villa

To create a villa on Minecraft, you need to have a lot of imagination and, above all, a good project studied from the beginning. Certainly it is not easy to achieve it, especially for the time that must be spent.

In this case, I can help you by advising you to watch the different projects made by other users on YouTube . You will certainly find ideas for creating your own dream villa.

To do this, you simply have to get to the Web site of YouTube and type in the search box at the top, the terms “minecraft villa” or minecraft modern house” , in English. You will find many videos made by fans of this video game, which will give you a starting point to realize the project of a villa.

Mod to build a villa

Don’t have much time to devote to building a villa on Minecraft? Again, I can give you a solution: use mods used for the immediate construction of preconfigured buildings.

Mods are nothing more than tools generally made by other users, which allow you to add or improve Minecraft features. There are several mods that can help you build a villa with a click, but among the many you should use Prefab , available on  CurseForge.com or Instant Structures Mod (ISM) ,.

To make the mods work on Minecraft, you need Minecraft Forge , a tool dedicated to managing the mods for this video game. To download it, go to the official website of the program and press on the Windows Installer item , in order to start downloading the file. Once the download is complete, double-click on it and press OK , in the screen that is shown to you, to install it.

Now, go to the path C: Users [name] AppDataRoaming.minecraft  via  Windows File  Explorer and open the mods folder . If you don’t find it, create it manually. At this point, inside this folder the JAR file taken from CurseForge must be positioned . Prefab can be downloaded from this portal by clicking on the Download button ; for Instant Structures Mod , press the  Download Instant Structures Mod button and select the version of Minecraft you have installed, to start downloading the mod.

When you start Minecraft, press the ▲ icon next to the Play button . Select the Forge profile and press on Play to start the game. You will find the correctly activated mod inside the Mod menu item .

Prefab is an easy-to-use mod: you will find a consumable item in the quick bar and, using it on the ground, a screen will be shown from which to select the structure to be built instantly.

Instant Structures Mod , on the other hand, presents itself with a screen accessible from the computer desktop. Through this, you must select the structure through the search engine or the categories located on the left. When you have found the villa you like best, click on it, press on the icon with a brick and finally press on Place structure .

Within the game session the selected structure will be positioned, completely accessible by the player. Comfortable, right?
