Default Quarantine diaries : building Croft Manor in Minecraft

Hey people!

Don't know how many of you will care about this but I don't have much interaction with human beings lately so you'll have to excuse me. Ever since my quarantine started (about two weeks ago) I've been feeling completely useless for my lack of activities, that is until I've come across a mod for Minecraft called LittleTiles that let's you build with smaller cubes, giving you much more freedom in adding detail to structures. Now, I still feel useless but at least I have something to distract myself with. I'm a total noob when it comes to the base game of Minecraft, but I've always enjoyed the aspect of building block by block, kind of like a virtual version of Lego.

Long story short; I had a vision of creating the classic Manor, a sort of perfect mixture between the FMV and the in-game version with my added spices on top. So far I feel quite passionate about it, though as an aries I cannot say how long my motivation to finish will last. For now I am in total speed mode and managed to do a pretty good progress since I started 3 days ago.

Here are some progress screens

Day 1:



Day 2:





Day 3:


edit: all the doors and windows you see can actually be interacted with

Day 4:





Day 6:



Day 7:



An album of the full progress up until now can be seen here, there are some WIP shots of several objects too, so you might get a better understanding at how tiny the cubes actually are, and how insane I am (also some totally useless screens too but I was lazy to filter those out): https://imgur.com/a/VJ9By7q

ew the blocks are so small are you nuts. It looks gorgeous though. I can't wait to see the pool room.

Also, what's making the smoke in the chimney?

The mod lets you put particle blocks of all kind as well, though I did start to make a fireplace inside, the chimney actually is hollow lol

This reminds me so much of pre-rendered graphics from the 90s, crazy! This must be taking you ages ! Great job so far!
