Welcome to our latest Build Wars challenge: Chunk Houses!

Minecraft worlds are made of an endless number of chunks. These chunks measure an area of 16×16 blocks. Our latest challenge asks you to come up with a type of building within the 16×16 block limitation. There are no height requirements. A “building” is qualified as a living/working space with walls, roof, and floor. Neither pixel art creations nor statues qualify for this particular competition.

The building above was built within the 16x16 guidelines, but the landscaping surrounding it was not.

Like previous challenges, the map will be in creative mode and contestants will be given one hour to complete their builds inside and out. Interiors and exteriors must be decorated. We are looking for creativity!
