Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make a stable on Minecraft, I think it may interest you to know more about the possibilities offered, in this sense, by the title of Mojang.

First let’s say that in Minecraft there are many different animals. To give a concrete example, however, we will examine horses: the latter can be domesticated and used as a “mount” to get on the saddle and ride them.

Put simply, horses can allow you to explore the map much faster than usual. However, as with any other animal, leaving them “free” in any place you may not be able to find them anymore.

For this reason, it is good to create a stable, useful precisely for not letting the horses run away and at the same time take care of them. In the past I have already explained on this page how to build a farm in Minecraft, also providing useful information regarding the construction of an animal enclosure.

If you are interested, I recommend that you take a look at that tutorial first and then continue with this one, as we can consider the barn as an additional structure for the farm.

In any case, my advice for this type of structure is to create the constructions initially in Creative mode, in order to understand well which elements to use and not make mistakes “transporting” everything in Survival mode.

In this guide I will make the stable in Creative mode, explaining what the necessary elements are as you go. I remind you that in this Minecraft mode you already have everything available in the inventory.

However, if you want to start immediately with the construction in Survival mode, I suggest you refer to a handy tool that can make you understand on the fly how to find all the elements that I will mention during the procedure.

I refer to MineSearch, a portal that can provide the combinations to create any object present in the Mojang title. To use this tool, simply connect to the MineSearch website, click on the search bar at the top right, type the name of the item you are looking for and select the most relevant result.

In this way, the combination of objects to be used to manufacture the element you need will appear on the screen. Perfect, now you have all the necessary information to continue correctly with the tutorial.

How to make a barn in Minecraft

After analyzing the possibilities offered by Minecraft, I would say that you are ready to take action.

The first thing you have to do is place 4 columns made of 3 logs each on the ground, placing them in a square ( leaving 3 free blocks between one and the other).

At this point, take some dark oak slabs and connect the columns together starting from the last block at the top, leaving only one side of the structure “empty”.

After that, place some spruce steps covering each top corner of the structure. Leave the blocks in the center “free” .

Now, place a step for each corner that goes towards the outside of the structure starting from the last steps towards the center.

Next, take some fir slabs and place them in order to create the “roof” of the structure. Leave only the central block “empty”.

At this point, surround the central block with fir plates and “close” the structure in this way, creating a further “layer”.

Now you can get off the structure and place spruce slabs in each top corner of the structure to embellish it a bit.

In addition, another method of making the structure more pleasing to the eye is to place an acacia fence under each slab placed in the high corners of the building.

Once this is done, it is time to build the “fence”, closing the structure at the bottom with fir fences and placing fir hatches above them.

You are in the finishing touches. Then place a lantern in the block at the top center.

Finally, place acacia gates at the front of the structure so that you can simply walk inside.

Perfect, now you have created your enclosure / stable, useful for keeping every animal good. Obviously, what I have shown you is a “basic” structure designed, for example, for a single horse, which can be modified at will.

The building involved is not designed by chance, but can be replicated as many times as desired and, by building one next to the other, it is possible to create a very large complex.

How to make a horse stable in Minecraft

How do you say? Would you like a practical example of how to use the structure that I showed you in the previous chapter? Don’t worry: I’ll explain how to do it right away, looking at the horses.

To proceed, enter the barn and place 3 hay bales on the left corner of the structure.

After that, break a block of soil in the right corner and place a cauldron, filling it with a bucket of water.

At this point, I recommend that you place another bale of hay to the left of the cauldron and perhaps place a few blocks of barren earth here and there.

Great, at this point all you have to do is get on the horseopen the gates and leave it inside.

He will certainly be happy in this new “home”. Of course, you can create a much larger complex simply by creating more structures of this type and bringing in more horses.

I remind you that to tame a horse you just need to remove all the objects from your quick inventory and try to interact with it several times until you see some hearts appear on the screen.

After that, you will need to take a saddle and place it in the horse‘s inventory. Only in this way will you be able to use it as a “mount”. If you don’t have a clear idea of ​​how to do it, I suggest you take a look at my guide on how to make the saddle in Minecraft.

Perfect, now you have all the necessary indications to create a stable that is pleasing to the eye within the Mojang title.

Since you are a fan of the latter, I would like to invite you, finally, to consult the page of my site dedicated to Minecraft, where you can find several guides that could be for you.
