I’m sure every Minecraft player has, or will experience starting a world, only to spawn in a jungle. While jungles are great for resources, they are very densely packed with trees and shrubs, so it can be quite difficult to set up a base early on. However, there is a straightforward way to avoid this issue: a treehouse! In this tutorial, you will learn to build an early game base that will get you through your first few nights in Minecraft.
- 9 Jungle Logs
- 5 Jungle Fences
- 38 Jungle Planks
- 8 Glass Panes
- 1 Jungle Door
- 54 Jungle Leaves
- 1 Crafting Table
- 3 Furnaces
- 2 Chests
- 1 Bed
- 1 Torch
Step 1: Find a Suitable Tree
Firstly, you should find a suitable tree, such as the one shown in the picture, (a smaller or non-jungle tree may not achieve the desired look for this build).
Step 2: Place 6×4 and 2×2 Platforms
Secondly, you should build a 6×4 platform, as shown in the picture, with a small 2×2 platform added onto the back side. There should be a 3-block gap between the leaves at the top of the tree, and the platform.
Step 3: Build the Walls
Next, build the walls up, with logs in the corners. Place a door at the front, and add a small, 1×2 window on the side of the house, and a larger, 6×2 window on the back.
Step 4: Exterior Details
Placing 5 fences along the edge prevents you from falling, and makes the balcony, and the house as a whole, look far nicer. The torch will also prevents mobs from spawning in your house, and makes your house much more visible at night. While there is very little exterior detail, these add a lot to the build.
Step 5: Indoor details
Next, you should add a bed against the side wall, as shown. Place two chests against the side wall, so that they touch the ceiling. (These chests will not open if you choose to use blocks other than the leaves on the ceiling, with the exception of slabs and stairs). Then place a crafting table on the other side of the door, so that it is up against the tree trunk. If you followed the guide correctly, there should be a small 3×1 gap between the back wall and the tree trunk, and in here, you should place three furnaces.
Step 6: Add Leaves to the outside
Finally, you should add leaves, as shown in the photos above, to make the house appear to be more supported, and give it a more natural, realistic look. This will be the finishing touch to get your house looking nice, while still being practical.
Hopefully, with the help of this tutorial, you will have a nice and practical base, with all the necessities required to survive your first few nights in Minecraft.
