House Tour! – Tekkit Tuesday #1

January 13, 2015

Hey!

This is the first ‘official’ post of my Tekkit Tuesday posts, if this is the first Tekkit post of mine you’re reading then please click here to learn a little bit more about why it is that I’ve decided to do these posts!

Today I thought I’d show you my house because it seemed like a good place to start these posts with!

Before I do that though I guess I should tell you what Tekkit is if you don’t know! Putting it really simply, Tekkit is a Minecraft modpack that makes Minecraft twice as awesome as normal, it lets you build machines, and a whole host of other brilliant things that just make it super fun!

I’m currently playing on a server with Jim and I have been for a few weeks now, I’m really enjoying it! Normally when I play by myself I flip between Creative Mode and Survival Mode depending on what I’m doing but Jim made the server survival only so I can’t cheat.. I didn’t like it at first, “UGH I’ve actually got to mine things in order to build???” but now I actually think it’s more fun because in a way it’s more rewarding!

So here’s my house, I built it from Marble & Glass so it was really inexpensive to build, our mine (which I’ll show you in another post) is absolutely full of marble! It took me about 5 hours in total from start to finish to complete it that includes mining for bricks & making glass. Although really it’s not completely finished I’m still figuring out what to do with the rooms and I’m still working on my farm and the surrounding area.

I don’t really know why I built such an obnoxiously big house.. I like it though! Let’s look at some pictures!

I have two rooms off my entrance hall where I keep my pets! On one side I have my cat and on the other side I have my 3 wolves! (you couldn’t see all three in this picture so I took another picture of them too!)

This is the room at the top of the first ladder, you can go out onto the roof from here which I like to do of a night and fight mobs!

This is the room at the top of the second ladder, I got a bit crazy with the book cases but I’m going to use them with an enchantment table eventually!

This is the next floor up!

From this window you can see a glimpse of Jim’s quarry (the orange thing) When I’ve found enough diamonds to make a quarry I’m going to build one on one of the sand dunes you can see!

And then this is my bedroom. This is going to sound really daft but I built my bedroom high up because I actually really like the Minecraft Sunsets / Sunrises, not as much as I like real ones but I do like them!

I also have a basement which is where I’ve built all of my machines and that’s also how I get through to the mine we built.

None of the machines were particularly expensive to build so I’ll do a post on what I’ve got and I’ll include the recipes too if you’d like!

I think that’s about it for this post, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it!
