Welcome to the Wayne Mansion!
The Wayne Mansion is near where I will eventually build Gotham City and is one of the biggest houses I have ever built. With 4 floors, a 2 story library, and a gorgeous Ballroom, this is a HUGE house. One of my brothers got lost in it once… 🙂
First off is the 1st Floor…
This is the living room, which I designed off of a similar room seen in the last episode of animated Justice League, Season 2 (released in 2003). With a flip of the lever you can see in the picture on the top left, you can ‘turn’ off the tv, and another (which you can’t see in these pictures) turns off and on the lower lights. The lights in the ceiling automatically turn on at night because I believe the windows let enough natural light in during the day that constant light wasn’t necessary for most of the room.
Considering the Kitchens I have built in the past, this one is pretty small but this was mainly because of the odd shape. Plenty of storage but not much counter space, a working fridge and by working I mean that if you push the lower button food comes out, and a nice oven.
Just across the main hall from the side room leading to the kitchen and living room is a small hall way leading to the 2 story library which my brother designed, though I added a few finishing touches. If you go up the ladder near the door and turn right you will find yourself in another small hallway leading to a reading and lounge area with nice views of the surrounding area. This room is also connect to another room, but that is for later.
This room has yet to have a designated function, though I’m considering making it the training room. Any suggestions would be great, but for now it will just be one of the unused rooms in the house.
Now for the second floor. Above are some pictures of the view from the balcony, the center one viewing where Metropolis will eventually stand and the one to the right shows the Gotham Lighthouse.
The master suite has a beautiful view of the bay and its own entrance hallway to the reading and lounge area near the library. Another room with light switches installed and it has one of my favorite minecraft paintings hung up on the wall.
Just down the hall is a small walkway to the upper half of the living room, and if you take the door to right you enter an approximately 3×6 bedroom with a small closet and lights that can be turned off and on at will.
If you turn left you will enter an empty room with another set of doors leading to the elevator.
At the end of the 2nd floor hallway is a door leading to the outside access. If you noticed the stairs going up, behind and over the front door this is where they lead. Another inspired feature, but this time it was the Wayne Mansion from LEGO Batman 2 that was the inspiration. In fact the whole outside structure and decor of the mansion was based off the mansion in the game.
The 3rd floor has fewer rooms than the other two I have shown you, but these are some of my favorite parts of the house…
The first room is the Entertainment/Ballroom which I really like. with some awesome paintings, one switch for all the lights (it took me almost 20 mins to design that feature), a high ceiling and plenty of room to have a celebration, it is I think the biggest room in the house.
Across from the Ballroom is another empty room that I won’t include pictures at this time, but might become something cool later… You never know.
At the end of the 3rd floor hallway is Nighthawk‘s (the main character of The Gotham Enigma) bedroom. She has her own balcony overlooking the 2nd floor entry way and a sitting area all included in her room.
The 4th floor is fairly small considering the Ballroom encroached on the space with its tall ceiling. First thing you see when exiting the elevator is stairs, which lead to roof. The first door on the right leads to another bedroom while the second door to the right leads to two huge empty rooms which I don’t know what to do with.
While writing this post I though of something which I shall complete later. I think I will turn the one of the empty rooms into Bruce Wayne’s office. But, I don’t have time to do that right now.
Overall, I love how the Wayne Mansion has turned out and hope to continue to have the same amount of fun building the many other places for my Justice League’s Earth!
I love how Minecraft gives me the ability to recreate what I have already built in my imagination. In the above collage I took a picture of my Minecraft Alfred and placed it next to a screenshot of the him I took while watching the Animated Justice League to show on my iPhone.
Since he is a vital part of the Wayne Mansion, I thought it would be a good idea to include a picture of him in my post.
Below is a picture of my new Nighthawk skin I made in front of the Wayne Mansion.
Thanks for reading!
Update: I have decided to redesign the Wayne Mansion and go to make sets instead of the entire planet.
