Minecraft PE (Bedrock) gives players the opportunity to play the whole game from their mobile phones and build anything from the 150+ blocks available in the game. In survival mode, the first thing players do is create a safe house to stay in and avoid the dangers of the wilderness. Hence, to make a decent house, players should be aware of which blocks are conducive to building.

Certain blocks are readily available, and some are rare and valuable. Only some of the blocks in Minecraft are usable for building a nice house and here's a look at five strong contenders for players to consider.
