After building that quite pointless tower the other day I decided to try and do some changes to my own home that I use day in, day out. Mainly making a basement/kitchen/storage room for some more chests because my very small house just doesn’t have enough space for everything. And I also wanted a sofa 🙂

I also decided to make some additions to my swimming pool, namely some lava lamp pool lights. Probably one of the worst ideas ever as the only thing separating the water from the lava (stopping it from turning into obsidian) is a 1 block layer of glass. At least everything breaks slower when you’re under water.
The valley in the centre of where all of the houses are has a hill at one end, which is quite unusual – it is filled with lava. So I decided to build a obsidian generator (a redstone powered one as well!) Basically there is water running into a hole next to some redstone that you place in the generator each time you run it. Then you pour a bucket of water on top of the redstone and the redstone turns into obsidian. Don’t ask me how it works as I don’t really know myself, it just does. But anyhow, it is very useful as the lava can be took out once the obsidian generates and re-use it.
