Minecraft Creations: The Hunter's Hall

Hi all, As explained in my previous Minecraft Creations post,  I agreed to create a building (a house of course as I always do) for my friend Richard’s Town/World of Ralgon, I was designated a spot right on the edge of town and I decided to challenge myself to do a house in a sort of L-shape. I quickly got the idea for it to be a sort of a long hallway which reminded me of the Jarl’s Longhouses of Skyrim so I decided to name it the Hunter’s Hall.

The hall inside Ralgon
 I decided to create the house using Spruce wood and logs as we were using Misa’s 64x64 realism texture pack and the spruce wood worked remarkably well for a “Woodland Hunter’s Hall” style. I designed the house to be a fairly long straight hallway with an entrance at the front which opens into a larger room which juts off to the left, I made the corners and the lower trim with spruce wood logs and put the planks in the middle. I made the ceiling using spruce wood stairs as the levels effect is now much easier to pull off with the stairs now joining at the edges. I also made the it quite high as I wanted it to look like a hall more than a house though I then got an idea to do a second level balcony.

 I carved out some windows on the lower level and made the doorway which was a bit close to the building next to it but meh couldn’t really do anything about it. I did the carpet in brown wool with stone slabs for the alchemy and furnace/anvil areas and laid out all the items inc chests, a workbench and furnaces along the walls. I did a 2 block high wall and fence on top around a corner for my room and fit most of the usual stuff in there and made the bit next to it the Alchemy corner.

I built a ladder up to the top level and fenced off the balcony, this was going to be a sort of library level with the enchanting table, bookshelves and seat for reading, I did try to put windows up there but unfortunately they would have been right up against the roof on the outside and didn’t look very good.

 After that I began decorating the walls with item pictures, I was originally just going to do pictures of the weapons and armour but then decided to do all the tools as well items from wood to diamond, I also made a display of the armour sets in the blacksmithing corner and some npc heads on the other side of the furnaces.

I reckon it came out pretty well, I hope my contribution was adequate for the town, It may not be as big or spectacular as some of Richard’s creations but hey at least it’s well furnished.


Quite a nice shot of the hall with the sunrise (I think) over Ralgon.

There is always wood.
