What really stuck out to me in this build was the creative river placement. As a water mill, this build revolves around water. Having your river be different heights makes that aspect even more interesting. Additionally, you had some awesome terrain with the floating islands. That being said, I would of liked a closer up picture of the watermill on the outside. While I could zoom in, it was hard to see the centerpiece of the build.

Nice job!

Another build that took advantage of the terrain by providing different water levels. In addition, the build itself was simply fantastic. It was the small details that drew me in. The smoke in the chimney, or the old cobweb attic.

Nice build!

A smaller build, but one that fit in its environment. I love build that seem like they fit in the vanilla game, and it’s something you could just come across in the middle of the forest. This is one of those builds. Block choice, and scale made this possible.

Nice job!

**Honourable mentions**

#**Introduction**

With Christmas around the corner (and winter), I thought we should do something related to that type of build. Then, I realized we had a perfect type of build to go with that, and with our new peaks….

Skiing!

So, let’s use those new mountains and make some ski hills!
