How to Build a Minecraft Spruce Wood House

We choose the small medieval for the tutorial since it looks super good and the size is sufficient to live in. Also, all the materials are easy to get in the early game so you can use this as your starter base if possible.

You will need those resources:

  • 30 Oak Logs
  • 75 Stripped Oak Logs
  • 54 Stripped Spruce Wood
  • 16 Spruce Planks
  • 94 Spruce Stairs
  • 28 Spruce Slabs
  • 6 Spruce Fence
  • 7 Spruce Fence Gate
  • 48 Spruce Trapdoors
  • 11 Spruce Sign
  • 18 Spruce Buttons
  • 93 Cobblestone
  • 12 Cobblestone Stairs
  • 10 Cobblestone Slabs
  • 3 Cobblestone Wall
  • 2 Oak Doors
  • 19 Lectern
  • 11 Glass Panes
  • 10 Leaves
  • 10 Azalea Leaves
  • 5 Azalea
  • 5 Flowering Azalea
  • 8 Flower Pot
  • 8 Flowers of any Kind
  • 20 Candles
  • 4 Glow Berries
  • 4 String
  • 2 Chain
  • 2 Lanterns
  • 6 Torches

Step 1: Build the First Floor

Start things off by creating the layout of 7×5 with cobblestone. Leave one block in the middle for the front door. And fill the floor with spruce planks.

Build up 3 more blocks using cobblestone, then fill the top and the middle column with cobblestone too. Remember to leave 2 blocks to place the door later.

Create a spruce trim around the cobblestone box by interleaving spruce stairs and spruce slabs. Place the stairs in the center and wrap them around the box.

Then use spruce trapdoors and place them in every corner and the block has the spruce stairs on top. Place an oak door and some azalea leaves. You will have something like this on the front side.

Continue using this technique to decorate the remaining sides. Here’s the left side.

And the backside.

Finally, on the right side, more flowering azalea leaves for this particular side.

Now go back to the left side, and start building the 2 blocks wide stairs with cobblestone stairs. Remember to place one more block upside down right behind the original stairs, and continue making your way up to 4 blocks tall. At this point, use cobblestone slabs to expand all the way to the backside. Finally, use 3 cobblestone walls to create support like this.

Wrap the stairs up with spruce signs. Here’s the result.

Step 2: Build the Second Floor

On the second floor, build the pillars up by 3 blocks using oak logs, while the middle pillars are 6 blocks tall.

For blocks next to the middle pillars, place 2-3 candles there and fill the rest of the bottom wall with lecterns. You may need to place a placeholder block first in order to place the candle since you can’t put candles on lecterns for some reason. Then add another oak door here.

Let’s build the front wall, use 4 glass panes and build two windows like this. Then fill the rest with face-up stripped oak logs following the pattern below.

To the right side, build two more windows but this time only one glass pane for each window. Then fill the wall with stripped oak logs again. Repeat the same for the backside as what you did to the front side.

For the left side, you only need to build one window since the other one is blocked by the door. You will have something like this.

Step 3: Build the Roof

Now for the roof, let’s use spruce stairs and start building at the same height as the outer oak log pillars. Then extend outside one block to create the hanging effect and start building up. When you reach the center, place another spruce stair upside down, and a spruce slab on top. Replica for the other side.

Go in one layer, place the stripped spruce wood on the oak log, then place spruce stairs upside down next to it, and place another stripped spruce wood on top of the spruce stairs. Repeat this process until you reach the top and place the spruce slab on top as usual.

Repeat for another side.

Then connect them up like this.

When you finished the roof, let’s place some spruce fences and buttons on it for further decoration.

Finally, add some spruce trapdoors and fence gates to the window. Then hang a chain with a lantern, and place some flower pots, and torches on either side. And grow the glow berries with the string right below them to prevent them from growing. And you’re done with the medieval Minecraft spruce wood house!

Finish the Minecraft spruce wood house

Conclusion

If you’re new to Minecraft, you may just see oak wood or birch wood is better, since they’re much brighter and not so many people use them. But believe us, when it comes to the building and choosing a color palette, spruce will do a great job and it fits with pretty much any other blocks. So you don’t have to think much!

We personally see that spruce wood will be the most suitable wood for building with the overgrown Minecraft house themes, so combining those building styles if you have a chance is also a great idea!
