5 things to build in Minecraft: building ideas for 1.19

There are some things that Minecraft doesn’t offer to its players. With a nearly infinite and unique world, there are options to either stick with the classic survival experience or just turn on the cheats, switch to creative mode, and build. With more blocks and variety on the way, the options are bound to expand.

However, building into the game isn’t always easy. A lot of this requires thinking outside the box and using blocks in a creative way to simulate structures. While everyone has their own style, it’s always good to take inspiration from other builders. Here are great Minecraft house ideas to inspire players in their next survival or creative game.

1. Mansion

Building a mansion for yourself in Minecraft survival can be a lot of fun. Design your own bedroom, storage area, hallway, grand staircase, and more. You can go a step further and create a fancy fence around your property and have a nice garden or fountain in front of your house.

For more inspiration, you can easily google examples of real-life mansions to model after building your Minecraft.

feeling lazy? Try to find a naturally occurring woodland mansion and renovate it to your liking.

2. Farm

Everyone needs a farm in Minecraft to grow their own food and supplies. You can build a simple farm for essentials like trees and wheat, or create a more fancy farm outside with a windmill and barn.

Another option is to build an indoor or underground farm, but that would be more work. Crops need light to grow, so you need to make sure there is enough light from a torch, lantern or lamp.

A cool Minecraft farm idea can be to build a glass greenhouse using natural light to grow your crops. The greenhouse will keep out animals and crowds, but you should still lighten it a bit so it doesn’t get crowded at night.

3. Japanese Pagoda

Does the beauty of Japan grab your attention? Courtesy of Sheepjiji, you can bring the wonders of the Far East too close to you by building a Japanese pagoda to suit your needs. It has wooden type blocks which are layered with grand symmetry five floors high. Moreover, it is topped with a roof finial to cap off the build.

In addition to the massive, brilliantly designed architecture that is sure to traverse the mighty skies, you can also grow sakura trees in bloom to bring out the East Asian atmosphere in your Minecraft world.

4. Minecraft McDonald’s

There’s always something fascinating about bringing modern, real-life brands to life in the world of Minecraft. This trendy McDonald’s restaurant from TSMC does just that – featuring the bold and iconic McDonald’s emblem on a building that mimics the architecture that this fast-food chain stays true to.

While the interior is full of neat furniture ideas that make this restaurant pop, the exterior also maintains some cool true-to-life quirks like a parking lot and a little lawn arrangement. Perhaps you might consider building In ‘n’ Out or a KFC building next to it to round it out.

5. Hobbit Hole Storage Or Home

One of the hardest things to handle in Minecraft is storage. Players will collect so much loot and crafting material as they progress through their survival world that they will need myriad chests to store it. Thankfully, there are also some build outs with storage in mind, like this one from Youtuber TheMythicalSausage.

It takes the concept of “underground storage” and expands it to eleven. This design can also be used for a base, a combination of the two, or anything else the player can dream up.

It’s simple enough for many ot builds in the world of survival, but also holds enough detail to be visually stunning, especially from the outside. It can be cut into practically any hill, giving players a range of biomes to use in it. This is the perfect build for anyone who wants to add their own personal touches while starting with a solid frame of reference.
