Quest Steps

Step 1

It takes a lot of wood to build a house. Start by gathering supplies.

• Obtain 2x Log (0/2)
• Obtain 11x Sticks (0/11)
• Obtain 20x Timber (0/20)
• Obtain 30x Plank (0/30)

Step 2

This is the moment you've been waiting for. It's time to begin construction of your house. Try to construct some wooden stairs where you want the entrance to your house to be. This will make it easer to get in and out during construction.

• Place 1x Wooden Stairs (0/1)
• Build 1x Wooden Stairs (0/1)

Step 3

You'll want to build wooden supports under your house. This will give you a solid foundation and a level place to build a floor. Start from your stairs and construct supports in the shape you want your house to take.

• Place 4x Support (0/4)
• Build 4x Support (0/4)

Step 4

You can start constructing floors on top of the supports. To attach the floors to the top of the supports you may need to turn off compound building mode. This prevents you from overlaping some blocks in the same space. Press "Letter Z" to toggle compound building mode on/off or hold "Left Shift" to disable it momentarily.

• Place 4x Floor (0/4)
• Build 4x Floor (0/4)

Step 5

Equip the wall available in the general search ("Letter G"). Most walls only rotate around their vertical axis but this one can also be rotated on another axis. You'll want to place walls on top of the floors. This will require compound building mode be turned on so that the walls and floors can share the same space. Go ahead and try building a few. Make sure you don't block access to your stairs!

• Place 2x Log Wall (0/2)
• Build 2x Log Wall (0/2)
