Large Oak Wood Survival Starter House

As its name implies, building a large oak wood survival house costs us lots of oak wood. Starting with a green garden as a foundation of the house may be a good idea, then creating 2 or 3 blocks of stairs, adding some flowers to make your entrance more attractive. Keep going and build your main house with 2 or 3 floors (in my opinion) based on the oak logs you got.

The inside is where you show the world how creative you are. With lots of stuff like a cauldron, blast furnace, table, lamp, bookshelf…. You can decorate it wherever you want.  It’ll take you a little bit of time to collect oak logs and build the whole house, but trust me the result is absolutely worth it.
