Minecraft cabin ideas: beautify your snow-capped peaks

0

Whenever there’s snow on the ground outside, I start to think of some cozy Minecraft cabins that I can build while I’m inside. The Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs update has been a fantastic motivation to do so this year. I’ve picked out some of my favorite new Minecraft seeds from the update and I’m determined to build a cozy little retreat on one of these peaks.

Problem is, I still struggle to freestyle a nice cabin build that doesn’t look like a big drop of spruce. It is a real art to mix wood species and decorations for the perfect new base. For my sake and yours, I’ve put together a handful of great Minecraft cabin ideas and tutorials and tried to build each one.

Get ready to chop spruce, strip logs, and build fireplaces. These constructions rely heavily on wooden frames and warm, comfortable interiors in which to wait for the long, cold nights. Several are good candidates for survival builds, with small footprints and material lists you can collect as soon as you’re ready. I also chose larger booths for the ambitious among us and those who play in creativity.

Here are six Minecraft cabin ideas to try:

Small minecraft hut

  • Total size: 9×11 blocks
  • Time to build: ~ 20 min
  • Difficulty: Easy

This little winter cabin is a perfect build for a new trip to a snowy biome. You will just need a handful of spruce, cobblestones and glass for the exterior. The interior leaves just enough space for your bed, some storage, and a few craft stations. There are even modern and sleek touches like a full wall window to the rear. You can follow Balzy’s quick and breezy tutorial below for a guide to building that tidy little starter booth. If you are looking for something slightly larger, Balzy has another cabin construction it will just give you a little more storage space.

Minecraft Lodge Cabin

  • Total size: 16×17 blocks
  • Time to build: More than an hour
  • Difficulty: Difficult!

This welcoming snow hut by Achelaus will force you to embrace imperfections. This is a mid-sized build that uses several different types of wood to create a distressed and unkempt look, perfect for lonely miners. The different types of wood may not be quite practical for survival, but the interior certainly gives you the space you will need for crafts and storage. The Archelaus video below is a timelapse, not a tutorial, so it can be difficult to follow at times. Don’t worry, this build has room for freestyle.

Stylish Minecraft Cabin

  • Total size: 16×12 blocks
  • Time to build: Less than an hour
  • Difficulty: Moderate

Zaypixel’s comfortable cabin has a sleek curved gable roof and a small loft interior if you’re looking for a nice balance of form and function. In the tutorial below, Zaypixel uses Dark Prismarine blocks on the roof to create some contrast. As they are more difficult to find in survival, I instead opted for a different type of wood. In the tutorial below, you will learn how to create a decorative seating area indoors, but you can easily use the same space for more practical purposes if you need to.

Minecraft Winter Cabin

  • Total size: 23×20 blocks
  • Time to build: More than an hour
  • Difficulty: Difficult!

This winter cabin construction is sleek and spacious, giving you plenty of space to use inside. If you’re not ready to leave your holiday spirit behind, you’ll feel right at home in this festive retreat. The only downside to this version is that it’s basically designed around the texture pack that Kelpie used, which I stuck to above. These super cute stained glass windows don’t look so good without Mizuno Texture Pack. If you’re up for a change of texture, this spruce leaf hut is sure to be the cutest in the biome. For something a little more rustic, Kelpie has another cabin construction with exposed log frame and spruce deck.

  • Total size: 17×20 blocks
  • Time to build: ~ one hour
  • Difficulty: Moderate

This larger cabin built by Goddessofcrows is another designed around Mizuno Texture Pack. This one actually looks quite nice even with the default textures as shown above. With two full floors in this spruce top cabin, the tutorial below will show you how to make room for an enchanting full table setup, artisan kitchen, and plenty of barrel storage.

Large Minecraft Cabin

  • Total size: 28×18 blocks
  • Time to build: ~ one hour
  • Difficulty: Moderate

This large cabin construction looks like a business but is an extremely practical construction. A lot of symmetry makes the building much faster. Its multi-part roof with skylights on the sides and a wraparound raised terrace makes it feel like a mansion. The tutorial below from Greg Builds will walk you through building this cabin with oak and spruce wood, but you can swap them for spruce and dark oak blocks respectively to get a slightly darker cabin like the one I chose above. The tutorial will also showcase a basic interior design for the ground floor, lofts, and a basement, but there’s a ton of space in this cabin to stack plenty of more handy tools if you need it. .
