Let's work on bringing real life to Minecraft!

Do the following:

  1. Go to Google.com
  2. Search the word "House".
  3. Click on "Image Search".
  4. Find a house of your likings and build it in Minecraft!
  5. Use Imgur.com, upload the house you found on google and the house you built on the server. Create an album and link it here.

Who can make the best house from a photo? :)

I took you up on this challenge! =D Before you blast me for choosing an architectural concept image... I might've missed the 'real life to Minecraft'-literal bit... ^^; Anyway, this took me about one evening to make and puzzle out, and I had to 'freehand' the back and other side of it so I hope you like it.

You could go on the app- "maps" with the apple products, or google earth, and look at a different neighborhood and make it, looking realistic and all! ;D

... Google Earth? You honestly think you could build a realistic, accurate neighbourhood from that? =P I'd like to see you try.

I'm about to transfer a house over to Craft Block, so I'll add my picture probably this upcoming weekend.

Nice home maru.  

I found a savahnah for wood . If you consider where you respawn on choco, turn left then 45degrees left again and head in that direction youll run into one.

Howd I miss this post sounds a great challenge. Imma start looking now.

This post is probably old, but I've built houses in Minecraft that are real houses so I thought I'd share them. The first "real" house I've built was never actually built because the owner, Steve Jobs, died before construction. But the blueprints were finished and posted online so I thought I'd give it a shot and try to built it in Minecraft. I think the house came out pretty well for being my first modern house, ever, in Minecraft.

This is the link to the real house:

This is the link to my version that I built in Minecraft:
http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/steve-jobss-house-wok-download/

The second "real" house I built in Minecraft is from a website that sell blueprints to people that want to build their dream houses. I have no idea where the real house is, but all the information for that house is on that website. Knowing everything about the house, I decided to build it in Minecraft. This house is one of my favorite builds I've ever built because it came out matching the real house's blueprints exactly. However, I added an indoor pool, indoor tennis court, movie theater, wine cellar, billiards room, and an extra dining room in the basement and a greenhouse on the side.

This is the link to the real house:

And here is the link to my version of it:
