As of 1.4 or 1.5, the bed as placed is not an acceptable respawn destination. When you die, you will revert to the world's spawn point, with the message "Your home bed was missing or obstructed".

A microshelter is a compact shelter that can fit all of these supplies inside: a bed, furnace, crafting table, dual wheat farm, light source, double chest, and a door. It can be built very quickly, and requires very few supplies to build.

Building[edit | edit source]

Step Image Description
1 MS1.png Place 2 blocks, and put a bed on top. Break the blocks, but leave the bed floating.
2 MS2.png Dig a hole one block deep along one side of the bed. Fill the hole with water. Use the hoe on the dirt under the bed. (If the squares aren't dirt or grass, dig them out and replace them with dirt.)
3 MS3.png Build walls, two-high around the bed, with gaps as follows: Don't block over the water yet, and also leave one space for a doorway at the head of the bed (opposite the water).
4 MS4.png Place blocks over, but not inside of the water. Place only the one layer, not a full wall.
5 MS5.png Place the chests on top of the new blocks.
6 MS6.png Break the two blocks above the head of the bed, and fill the space with the crafting table and furnace.
7 MS7.png Place a door where the yellow block is. Make sure to place from the inside.
8 MS8.png Place the torch on the last free block inside.
9 MS9.png Put slabs across the top as the roof. Plant your seeds on the farmland inside.

Mini shelter[edit | edit source]

Minishelters are slightly larger shelters that provides an extra anvil and some space, finally! You do spawn on the roof, but it is safe to jump off.

Building[edit | edit source]

Step Image Description
1 MiniShelter1.png Create a two block high enclosure like so.
2 MiniShelter2.png Put a floating bed like so, by putting two blocks on top of floor, then putting a bed on, finally breaking the two blocks up.
3 MiniShelter3.png Don't remove the bed; I've removed it for clarity. Dig under the bed and the two blocks in the wall by the under-bed blocks.
4 MiniShelter4.png Just add water! Add water to the digout under the wall.
