More about Belle End Farm
I created Belle End Farm in Minecraft's creative mode. The majority of the work was done in a day but then I couldn't help myself and continued through 2 weekends (not weeks as I say in the video). I also used MCEdit for some of the editing. It was useful for duplicating sections of the house, barn and grain silos. I also used it for landscape editing such as clearing areas and filling the stream with water. Plotz online Minecraft Modeller was used to help create the grain silos.
Belle End Farm is built on a desert biome. This was useful as no animals spawn in these biomes and I could focus on testing. The few animals in Belle End Farm were lured there (using wheat) from a nearby biome.
