Randomly Minecraft Mondays #7!

Ok, now that I’ve got a bit of that nether stuff out of my head I can move back into my underground floating island project.  There are two things I saw that I needed to get done and that was storage and a crafting place.  So the first step was storage.

Coming in from the makeshift farm you can see the storage room.  I just recently learned how to make those signs to display/label boxes.  I think they look awesome!

I only need about 2 rows of these in the center since the walls are also lined with chests.

This is the workroom.  The floor is a mixture of stone brick and furnaces.  The nether chest is essential and the becer holders are just there for show.  I've never actually tried alchemy.  I'm not sure if I want too, but they do look cool on the table.

Here's a better view of the workroom.

Here you can see the beginnings of the fortress walls.  They don't go that far up, but this is just the base.  It's going to look pretty sweet when it's done (hopefully lol).

That’s the progress I’ve made so far.  Let me know what you think on how it’s coming in the comments below (even though you don’t know what’s in my head, just imagine a giant floating castle/fort thingy).  There is a lot more work left than I had originally thought.  I think I’ll work on the outer walls this next week.  That would help one side look more complete and I’ve got to do a lot more clearing as well so that will help it look like I’ve worked hard all week!  It’s a win-win!  Remember though, I’ve got Pax on Friday through Monday.  I’m not sure I’ll make it through all of those days this time, but I’ll at least let you know what I thought looked cool.

Also, for those that look at this on their phones, does the photo setup matter?  I did this just to display how I used to do it, but if you would follow the link to see if either works more smoothly I would love to know so I can make it easier for you guys/gals.

    Badass, I love this design for a storage room

      I have to admit, it’s something that I just pulled out of thin air after being told that stairs count as open space, but it’s still my favorite design so far.
