Minecraft Bi-Weekly Build Challenge #124: Festival

#**[LAST WEEK’S THEME: FOREST HOUSE](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/n8et74/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_123_forest/)**

**Before announcing the winners, just want to highlight how good this week was. All of us judges had different picks for 1st place and our 2nd and thirds also varied because everyone had such good builds. I apologize if you didn’t place in the end, because chances are at one point we had you in the top 3… Had to come to a consensus though and this was the best we had. Good job everyone!**

A nice surprisingly cozy house in the middle of the forest… besides maybe the basement. Really loved the entire atmosphere of the build. You didn’t showcase the highlight right away (being the house). Instead you built up to it and managed to tell a little story all while showcasing a great build!

Awesome job!

Another great build with wonderful atmosphere. Another thing that really stood out for me is the ground and scenery around the house. I also found your build really fit the forest. All of the colours blended in. It really seemed that your house belonged there, which is what I want to see! Also really liked your interior, found a couple rooms bare, but you had some really cool items (pool table especially!).

Great job!

Really liked the original house you had. The foundation from cobblestone looked really nice compared to the rest of the build. Also really how your chose to incorporate mossy cobble into it as well. Since it spawns naturally in those biomes, it really fit your build well. Also loved your interior. The brown combined with touches of green looked fabulous.

Good job!

**Honourable mentions**

Wanted to highlight this build. Was very very well done but we felt it didn’t represent forest “house” as much as other builds. However was still really good so still wanted to highlight it. (Also explanations were great!)
