Minecraft House – Small Modern Home. Do you love survival, modern design and architecture with nature? If you said yes (let’s hope!) then you’ve got to check out this luxurious Minecraft home. Read on!
What is Small Modern House?
Small Modern House is exactly what you’d expect from the name. House? Check. Modern. Check? Small. Well, that’s subjective. We thought it was pretty sizeable! It’s a great house with excellent use of space, design and block choice. It’s everything you need for an awesome Minecraft base.
So, what is Small Modern House like to play with?
Small Modern House has a lot of similarities with other similarly styled Minecraft builds. But instead of copying what has been done plenty times before it, this house avoids being derivative by using creative and unique design choices that give it a real idiosyncratic feel.
The front of the house is large and is decorated with slim trimmed trees, and the garden itself is shielded from the outside world by a visually pleasing, but also practically sized defensive wall. The wall in particular was a highlight for me, as many creators tend to avoid including them in their builds, so kudos to this particular creator.
The choices of building materials are probably the most eye-catching part of the whole building. Big white slabs sit atop of sections made of varying materials and colours such as acacia wood, pastel pinks and deep muted browns.
Meanwhile, small bits of greenery are dotted across the rooftop sections, allowing the property to feel like a part of the map, rather than completely outside of it. Small details such as the faux solar panels and the acacia fence lattices really add a lot of character to the build, and evoke a feeling of sophistication.
Inside of the property somehow feels much larger than it appears on the outside. There’s plenty of rooms to use for your own devices, and clever placement of features such as the staircase allow the house to maintain its openness without eliminating practicality. The decoration on the inside is the standard fair for modern Minecraft buildings.
Admittedly, you won’t find any details in here that will blow your blocky mind, but they do get the job done, and each room is just very well made.
A small gripe for me would be the flow between rooms. Sometimes the locations of rooms didn’t feel totally natural for some reason. Likewise, placement of certain amenities felt a little random at times.
For example, you’ll be walking into a room and suddenly notice there’s a record player there, but without any indication why. This is fine of course, and I’m sure for the creator these were more aesthetic choices, but for survival use, you might want to move some things around just after you move in.
If you’re looking for a spacious (don’t believe the name!), modern and excellently built Minecraft base to play around in, you can’t get much better than this one. Show off your house to everyone, or lock yourself in the confines of your garden walls, we won’t judge.
