Virtual Tour of potential floor plan for Review!

I thought some of you regulars would get a kick out of my potential future house's floor plan laid out in a game called Minecraft. I posted my floor plan on here last week and appreciated all the feedback I received.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Minecraft is a really cool game for all you big kids out there. If you want to see some incredible creations, search for "Top Minecraft builds" on YouTube.
Thanks

At 10 and a half minutes long... I'll pass.

Besides, why design a fantasy house inside a game? It's not like you can actually build it.

I thought you were looking for "creating a floor plan that would be the starting point for most houses in that price range."

That is the actual house I plan to build and I think it could be a great starting point for folks looking for a 4 bedroom house with the master on the first floor.

Don't knock it until you at least take a minute peak.

It's kind of jarring to look at to be honest, but my kids thought it was cool!

Deleting a rude post. Sorry.

When you mentioned Minecraft I didn't even look at the link.

As the mom of two ten yr old boys I have to say that Minecraft is from the devil. OK just kidding, but not really.

Right now, they are on an Amish holiday. Banned from all electronics, except Kindle. No Minecraft in this house until Christmas break :-)

The only good thing about it is that my visual spatial child learns about design but too addicting.

I think you provided this more for fun than constructive feedback anyway, and I think it is awesome, as does my son who is very much into minecraft. Good job!

I haven't even checked the link out yet, but had to add that my boys would be so impressed. They keep telling me I would love the game so much and could stop using so much graph paper:)

"Don't knock it until you at least take a minute peak. "

Gave it just under a minute and a half PEEK (so I guess I CAN knock it!).

Yes andry, I did mainly provided it for fun and thought some of the creative thinkers around here would get a kick out of it but it seems that a lot of the folks here are very serious.
Thanks for understanding.

My kids love Minecraft and I think it's a great game for them to play. I'll take it anyday over shoot em up games. The only thing that I hate it having to try and get a few minutes on the computer for myself.

Haha, I could see this game being very addicting. I remember building houses on The Sims for endless hours in University. :P
