Who else watches tutorials on how to get better at building and ends up building nothing.
I remember when I 9 years old. And my sister show me these kinds of videos, and wanted me to be creative on building. So I played Minecraft with the tutorial video, and when I was finish with it, I accidentally deleted. After when I finish, and lost all that progress, and my sister was paranoid with it!
"You can dress it up, you can put sprinkles on it, but at the end of the day, its still a poo"-Grian
Moral of the video: You can't pretty your shitty
_You cannot decorate defecate_
It's like an alternative to an adage of: "Lipstick with a pig"
@Franz Ferdinand VIII I could leave but I won't go,Though my heart might tell me so,I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes,But why does it always seem to be,Me looking at you, you looking at me,It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all...
Do you have the time stamp?
“If something doesn’t work, you change it, you add to it, you remove from it.”A very simple, and yet, very useful statement. It really is that easy once you get the right mindset going. I’d say 80% of building better in MC is just being able to admit that something doesn’t work.
I think playing build battle has helped me get better because you'll build such a variety of things and I've seen a lot of new techniques in others peoples builds I hadn't seen before.
It’s so true, but man it’s hard to incorporate that mindset lol
The outside : GODLY DESIGNthe inside : *crafting table furnace chest bed*
Pro tip: go in creative and build underground. Force yourself to build without an exterior, and you'll improve your interior design in no time.
@Jonathan Mueller mine: bed chest couch
@Meownoi Pastel instead of using a ladder make a bubble elevator it’s more efficient
My inside: crafting_table furnace chest chest chest bed bed ladder
Me:That looks good!!Grian:That looks terrible.Me:That looks terrible.

Grian: Minecraft is a game of creativity and you can build anything.Me: Even apparently half doors 1:56
@Pug yeah, only problem with that mod, it tends to do strange stuff lol
@Pug especially when you have bad internet and you decide to break a door
@Pug Yes lol
World edit does that to your doors

@amogus yeah :)
can we appreciate grian adding the little boogie animation between segments?
Yes of course
@Fr can we appreciate that you can't understand that some of the best jokes are taking popular ones and making them your own? Its like saying buggati isn't original because they made a car that goes fast
U should do a “fixing my subscribers’ houses” series
Yes great idea
One thing I’ve definitely realized in the past months is all the small details to your builds and small details to your world such as decoration go a long way and make your world that much better great video!:)
As a pro builder, I still return to this video once in a while to keep my skills in check
15:59 For this build use concrete instead of snow, they didn’t have that back when he made this.
4 years old and still one of the best build tutorials
Check that comment! 5 years now *sighs* Still epic!

Me: understands everything Also me: steals villager house

What mod did you use to automatically make the house higher? I've been trying to find it for a long time
It's called world edit
Worldedit, I have no idea what command though
Its called world edit
Been playing for 9 years and this taught me everything I know about building
Same, although since this was posted a year ago you have been playing the game longer than me
@Lord Meow your reply is now invaliddelete it

@Grimm Soul i think its a typo, maybe he meant "This taught ME"

@A bruh the video is already split up
my man the video is already split up into segments. Useless comment.
Heck yeah thanks!
Ok, here’s what i took from this video:1/ Avoid giant flat walls (bc they are harder to fill with decor)2/ Try to make each side of the house look a bit different from eachothers (to create visual interest and make the build less monotonous)3/ Build struts to make it pop (its like an outline but in 3D)4/ Go outside, touch grass, look at houses irl for inspiration (style, color pallet)5/ It’s like drawing, go from general basic shapes, to refining those shapes match your vision, and then add details to increase visual interest6/ Like in drawing, small additions can make huge impacts on how the build looks, so go easy on the detail work
Thank you for this tutorial :), it really helped me! My dirt house can finally look good 😅
Man this video has reminded me how much better the old textures generally looked, even if they weren't as artistically designed. They just stood out better as what they're meant to be and had a slightly more serious, gritty feel instead of every texture necessarily needing to be an artistic centre of attention.
Nobody:Me: I'll build the first house, the one with the large roof because it looks cool and is satisfying and symmetrical.
you know there's a problem when your roof has more living space than your house.
make an attic, problem solved.
unless you like attics
yea that is sooo true
Lol that's why I aways make mansions, or fishing houses
@Yoleheho thats.. concerning. are you ok?
I really feel like i learned a lot in this video. I’m definetly interested in seeing more of this type of content
This is a very well made video. He does a really good job of explaining generally how to build well, and also provides examples of how that might come together, making this video a really good one to look back on, even in later versions of the game!
This is honestly an incredible tutorial for all types of building games.
I really appreciate the"adding extras" segment of this video because I usually watch building tips whenever I'm finished with my house but I'm not quite happy with it. But there's not many tips to improve an already finished house other than add some details I guess.
It doesn’t matter if you live in a mansion or a dirt house.We all sleep in the same sized bed.
But imagine having a survival world for 6 years and just living in a stack of dirt you collected and built a shed from it in 2 minutes bro
Yeah, you’re privileged enough to sleep, these zombies won’t go away
bruh we play the game to make builds farms progress we do not play for survival only
Grian: is easy.Me: gets exited thinking I can build something as good as this.Also me 5 mins later: I think I did it wrong 😑
This was very useful and informative. Can't wait to use some of these techniques!
Now this is way better than building someone else's builds just by watching their tutorial
I personally find it best to practice with villages. Not actual village homes, but extend the end-points of these villages with additional houses as big as the ones in the village.Experiment with different techniques big and small, practical and extravagant, until you’re ready to build the MUCH bigger houses for yourself and your friends. Eventually, you‘ll master a unique technique to your style. Even consider various materials and biome locations. The more you experiment, the more impressive your homes look, especially if they stand out or locate in obscure places like mountains, oceans, or even the Nether.
Me: I’m not bad at building, I’m just very talented at screwing everything up...
I first found a perfect shallow cave entrance just facing a beautiful river and birch forest. I worked on the entrance of my ‘underground home’ and made the entrance look like a mouth of a creeper, and dug a few floors beneath for my storage and stuff like that. However I wanted to have a house on land, so I decided to make a house above the cave and I could access both cave and house by ladder and doors. I can’t think of ideas for the exterior for the house so I came here. Thanks Grian!
Grian you are an awesome teacher!!!Thanks for the building tipsIt really helped me on improving my builds!
I watched this video as someone quite fluent with organic builds, but a little struggling with making interesting buildings. I really enjoyed it, and the tips are really good. I will say however the over-detailing thing you discussed with stairs/slabs/walls can be nice for certain parts of the build, specifically if you've got a stone foundation underneath that is visible, like on a hillside, it makes the foundation look nicer simply because otherwise there wouldn't be much there.
this video let me build my own house, and it actually looking good for once! rather than just stealing a villagers house or living in a glorified box.
Grian: Im not trying to build this house very good. Everything is very Random.Also Grian: **Accidentally builds a mansion.**
Yup goat \_(''ر)_/
@Kaiser jahan I-its a-an e-experssion. I-idiot
Mansion? I’ve heard that word before hehe
In Grian’s eyes, it’s not mansion. It’s a lowly civilian house.
@Blastpro normally by accident
To the people who don't understand... Just build houses from tutorials and pick up the techniques they use...That way you can get better at building.
"Your first build will be awful, but your 50th build will be perfect. Just keep practicing."-Some random guy on the internet
"Your first building will be awful, along with the rest. Just stop it."-Me to myself
Ya know, I feel this video deserves a lot more views than it has. Then again, in time, that shall change for the better…
I thought I was good with my new house, but after this video it had open my eyes to so many more options and opportunities!
"Minecraft is a great game"Feels good to hear something that hasn't been said in a while.
This aged like milk, and that makes me so happy.
Meanwhile replies were 69 rellies
@Iris Orellana Be quiet Fortnite fanbo6.
Why can’t people play what they like without being judged :,(
I have sometimes used the slabs in Minecraft to make a less steep roof if I am going for a certain style house, especially rectangular ones. I actually made models of our real life house, and some relatives’ houses as well.
when I was younger, about 5 or 6, for me when I started Minecraft pallets were most important. I made always small houses and my skills of making shapes evolved. But from the beginning as mentioned before: Colour was what mattered.
I really liked this, and I think videos like this really help some people to improve by giving them these tips and tricks.
the most informative and helpful Minecraft tips a beginner could ever find on yt. thanks alot for the effort
when this guy goes for architecture, he teaches the architect
@Vaishak P @your everyday foot lice Nice pfps
@BlessedWolf omfg wtf

@Nickster S ok and?
Thanks Grian.This helped me lots with my building.I normally made houses like the first you made.Thanks😊
Grian: wool is 1 of the worst blocks in minecraftAlso grian uses white wool 14:48
Love it! Lots of good tips for new players and veteran players alike!
Well done Grian! This video is how I learned how to build houses well. Hats off to you
Not just that it's a great "tutorial" on how to build, it also gives TONS of inspiration with all the builds shown in the video... just WOW
I wish I could like this comment 10000 times
@Dizzy_Izzy_ I'VE BEEN PLAYING MINECRAFT FOR 4 YEARS BRUH
@DankMemes .... Dont look at my worlds
@DankMemes well its takes 2x time for me to make something better so yeah and i keep making new worlds quz im bored of one so i never make progress also i never have enough materials/patience to make my house better i dont even spend that much time in it so its useless to make better houses
@Chili Cactus why wouldn't i have known
This helped a lot!! Building just doesn't click in my head for some reason, so these kinds of videos really help with developing a bit of a building skill!
U bring up so many good points about how to get better. I can definitely say my ego kept me from getting better at building because I was so dead set on the starting framework of a build
It's starting to look amazing I'm in love with the house
Loved it thank you so much for making this. It helped : )
*This is a note to self to watch this again when im playing minecraft and it's not three am.*
Hahaha, 11. (It's for a good reason I have a Minecraft house that I want to improve.) (Trust me it's good)
XD I’m not playing Minecraft and watching at 3 AM too
Broo its 3 am exactly rn
i am also in this exact situation
This is by far the best house build tutorial ive ever seen
This is one of those tutorials that actually help instead of saying what you already know in a different way
Nice guide dude, the only thing I need now is creativity lolAlso I wonder what the world's first house looked like... What if it was a box
Me: Wants to make a haunted houseGrain: Here, have some *A d v i c e*Also me: *Oh it actually works*
Grian: building is an artMumbo: MATH HOMEWORK
@Eris It's torture.
"so this starts with just a simple flying machine-"
Knuckels you arent very sharp.
Whats wrong with math?
Me watching this when im sick and not at school so I can still learn things😂 Thank you Grian you have taught me so much😊
Had a bit of a creative block lately. Decided to check out this video again and this has helped me build again, thanks grian
Not at all information overload, in fact, it's just about right. Thank you for the content, very helpful.
around 12:25 when he mentions the roof design, I normally do stair block stair block block stair. it looks rather good if you wanna try it!
Grian: Here we have quite a common shape.Also Grian: *Shows Mansion*.

Thank you man! I’ve recently just got into Minecraft and this is very helpful! I’m a little late tho.😅 you just earned a sub man! Keep up the good workk!
I have a tip don’t make the house super big to fit everything so instead add many rooms in a small house 😀
It’s been years since I watch this video but watching these videos really really helped my building I wasn’t the worst builder before I watch this video but I was not anywhere near as good as I am now
My real-life house is a rectangle, along with my whole town, Grian is now looking to buy a nuke
Are you in a villa?
i live in poland, lower silesia, every house in my suburb is an cuboid/rectangle, either with flat roof or a roof going up from both sides
My house is also a box lol
bro my house irl looks like the better one i the thumbnail
Grian: Here's 20 great tips and tricks for building!Also Grian: Uses spruce wood mixed with oak wood
love the effort put into this video!
this definitely was in information overload but after a few minutes i came to my senses. Thanks for the help!
This video is what finally made me start building houses as bases instead of just making a giant cave in a mountain
Him: *Looks at my house*What he says: It could use improvement...What he means: Burn it. Burn it all.
I was the excactly 1500th like
Can’t burn it if it’s made of dirt
i never thought someone could teach building in a logical way. i thought either you can do it or not. gonna try this out soon, building the most evil mansion i can think of.
Super video chap, like a professional architect/designer. Now I'm going to be able to build my MC dream mountain mansion.
4 years old, but still a great video to learn from.
Just got back into Minecraf again glad I watched this again as my builds weren't as good as they used to be when I played Minecraft again
Me: Don't know how to build good houses.Grian: Doesn't know how to build bad houses.
hhmm if I hit my head on a rock and forget everything I wont know how to build bad buildings
@Gurkenplayer HD Oh god, sorry man my bad, thank you. Didn't see that.
...build a good houses. Where is the mistake?
LOL this is so sad.. :(
You should teach eachother
Thank you this really improved my building skill!
Thank You For This, Grian! i am making now my minecraft home even better! it was a box but now, im making a house with a balcony, front porch, pool, you name it! Thank You Again Grian!
I am happy to announce that even after the addition of a much-needed texture update of 1.14, this video hasn't aged a bit... Even though the visuals themselves look outdated.
21:21 those emeralds bring memories
Quick tip: I find that making a list of all the rooms you want is a great way of planning a house without leaving bland empty rooms or cramming to much into rooms.-A Fellow Builder
I suck at building, I build wooden boxes with windows and nothing that have one room only.
Jetex nice idea
Jetex Gaming y
Jax Hawthorn I can build pretty good but I'm not as good as Grian, I wish Grian had a PS4 with minecraft that way me and him could play
Jetex Gaming :T xD I'm not as good a Grian but my building is not that bad & normally i just build without any idea of what I'm doing xD sometimes it'll look good & sometimes I just need some help from friends or Grian 😂
Thank you sooooo much i learned a lot from this video it was very helpful and everything was explained very nicely. Thank you once again
Thanks Grian for touching a bit on every topic. I might have to update my old Xbox360 houses with this info!
Grian sounds like Gordon Ramsay of Minecraft building
Nice Building techniques I am really thankful for them. Thanks Grian
This guy is like the Bob Ross of Minecraft...
Oh my grod yes
Grian v 😂😂 (Gary v)
Unoriginal comment copied from scars rustic house tour
It took me a while, I *always* had this video pop up on my suggestions, and I kept throwing it into my pit, but now that I clicked on it, I am just so thankful, I had no idea that this would actually help me as much as it did.
Thanks to your video, I have started freeflowing houses in flat world and my building is improving. Thanks
Grain: Be careful on using this roof, it is very dominatingAlso Grian: This might be great for a church
Thank you for making this video! You helped me understand minecraft!
