The Mountain Home

  1. 3 months ago

    I decided I wanted to undertake a large interior decorating project after the map was reset. It took a while but im pleased with how it turned out, so I decided to post the finished build.

    As the name might suggest, this build is in a mountain. This allowed me to give it an entrance that was at sea level, along with a front door instead of an entry shaft.

    Once inside, a tour of the place would start with the entrance hall. This hall connects to the three levels of the house via a ground level, upper landing and a flight of stone steps to the basement.

    The basement has two large rooms, a storeroom and a workshop. I wanted to display the function of each room in the way I decorated it. In places I have tried to get the "used and lived in" feel right without making it too visually messy.

    The ground floor only has the farms and the tree farm at the moment. I plan to expand it but at the moment the only thing of note (to me at least) is the tree farm. Mainly because it is large enough to grow every kind of tree inside and was a pain to dig out.

    On the upper floor the main rooms are connected by these hallways. For some reason in this build I was obsessed with putting doors everywhere without actually using doors. There are three functional none decorative doors in this entire build.

    Straight ahead coming from the main hall, is the kicthen and toilets. Quickly detouring into the toilets, I tried out the new water logged stairs and slabs mechanic to make a large wash basin instead of using a cauldron. I tried out using trapdoor doors to make a utility cupboard for towels and such like. Since this is a fancy house the toilets themsevles are medeival panneled wood style things with a hopper making up the bowl.

    The pantry connected to the kitchen and the kitchen itself was rather fun to fill up. I found myself imagining how the blocks could visually represent foods like meats, cheeses, loaves of bread, and the ocasional barrel of flour. I guess the ice is maintained by an enchantment of some kind. One day I hope to add exotic sea pickles and slime jellies to my larder.

    The kitchen is likewise furnished to look like it is used for things like roasting meat and baking bread. Perhaps I will add a soup cauldron in there at some point.

    If we mentally return to the door to the entrance hall and go left, we enter the the two main rooms of the build, connected by another small hallway like the one shown above.

    The first is the dinning room. Here I tried to use warm vibrant colours to make it easy to imagine the room being warm and appealing. Since the mountain home is a manor house, the table is set with gold plate and piled high with meats, cheeses and baked goods. Its a pity that plant pots cant be crafted out of ingots because I would have totally put out a set of golden cups to match the plates.

    The other main room is the parlour. Since this is a place to put ones feet up I tried to keep the colours more neutral. Old fashioned parlours were once meant to be the fanciest rooms in the house. I tried to show this by making much of the furniture more complicated and bigger in its design, and by using multiple golden ornaments.

    Off the side of the parlour and dinning room is the private suit, were the library, bedroom and bathroom is located.

    The library is also meant to be the master study. Like the tree farm, it was a pain to build, in this case because of the large bookcases I included in the design. No regrets though, im pleased with how they look. I experimented with using concrete powder as a wall and liked the result. like the dinning room, this room has a lipped dome overhead which allows foliage to hang down for decoration.

    The master bedroom was origonally colour themed green, but I tried and preferred pink. its layout is actually a slightly reworked version from a build I previusly showed off on this forumn. I enjoyed having a four poster bed in the old build I lived in so I brought it back here. As a bedroom its large but fairly routine with a writing desk, seating, shelving and wardrobe.

    I liked the idea of orange bathrooms for this build so the main bathroom got decorated the same way the toilets did. Thanks to soul sand the room has a nice bubbly bath and I reused the large wash basin and utility cupboard ideas.

    And thats it. In future im probably going to think up more rooms to add to it but right now I ran out of certain supplies building the place. Maybe next Il think of somewhere to put an aquarium...

  2. That looks absolutely stunning. Wish I could build that well.

  3. @JaceNeedsCoffee That looks absolutely stunning. Wish I could build that well.

    Theres this wonderful YouTuber called Grian that specialises in building in Minecraft. I probably learnt a huge chunk of how I build from watching his channel.
