How to Build a Minecraft Fox House

We will show you how to build a sleeping fox house step-by-step with pictures. In case you don't want to watch the video!

For this particular build, you will need those materials listed below:

  • 291 Orange Concrete
  • 34 White Concrete
  • 6 Black Concrete
  • 4 Orange Terracotta
  • 2 White Terracotta
  • 18 Orange Carpet
  • 4 Black Carpet
  • 8 Glass
  • 2 String
  • 1 Iron Door
  • 2 Acacia Button

Step 1: Build the Head

Start building the sleeping fox house by layering it down like the image below. We mark the layer with interleaved terracotta colors so you can easily count the block needed. For the head, let's build a 6 by 8 rectangle.

Build up 6 blocks using orange concrete and fill the roof as well.

Now let's build the fox's mouth right in the center of the head! Build two layers that contain 12 orange concrete each to create a 3x4x2 box.

Putting some white fur under the fox's head for extra realism. Start on another edge of the head and put 3 white concrete there. Then just wrap it around the bottom to another side.

Use 2 black concrete blocks to create a nose for the fox. Then cover the mouth up by placing some orange carpet on top.

Time to add the eyes! Use 4 black concrete and 4 orange terracotta and place them like this.

The head is looking good! But it still missing the most important part of the fox - its ears. Use 6 white concrete and 2 white terracotta to build the ears. Remember to cover them up with black carpet on top. You're done with the head!

Step 2: Build the Body

Now let's start working on the body of the fox! Simply build a 4 block tall box and cover it up like the head.

Go behind the fox's body, break 4 blocks on the two middle rows and replace them with 8 orange stained glass. You're done with the body, cool, right?

Step 3: Build the Tail and Connect with the Body

Using the remaining layout, build a 3-block tall orange concrete wall. Cover the roof also and leave 2 empty blocks on the side nearest to the fox's mouth. This will be the entrance to your fox house.

Use this pattern to cover the top of the tail with white concrete. Put 2 blocks at every corner and only 1 block at the edge.

Go between the body and the tail. Break two more blocks on each box and build a two-block tall wall like the picture below.

Now, this is the tricky part! You need to cover this part up with some orange carpets. And in order to do that for the middle blocks, you need to place two strings right below them. Simply hold the string and right-click to build it.

Time to add an iron door and an acacia button. Doing this will prevent most hostile mobs from entering your base.

Cover the floor of the tail and body with white wool. Now the whole building is extra comfy and soft!

Step 4: Prepare the Inside

We will not cover the interior in this guide. However, we will guide you to prepare the space and decorate it a little bit. First, break some blocks between the head and the body of the fox.

Then use the sea lanterns and orange carpets to bring some lighting to the house. Remember to spread it out to prevent hostile mobs from spawning.

Added two more sea lanterns at the entrance like this.

Go back to the head, you can literally use any wool for the floor of the head. But we will use white and orange wool with a checkboard pattern for this guide.

Finally, add two more sea lanterns on top of the head and build the modern neon light with 2 levers and an end rod. You've finished your busy day!


When it comes to animal houses in Minecraft, it's important to think on an aesthetic side. But we cover both function and appearance builds anyway so you can have an overall look after all.
