Welcome to the Builder’s Refuge. The refuge is a passion project we started to accommodate professional Minecraft builders who are looking for a personal or commercial space to build and create art.  We offer premium services at no charge along with a network of other builders and resources to help you become successful.

Community Build Server

Our community build server consists of small 75×75 plots and oversized 500×500 plots.  Unlike other creative servers, there is no joining or rank-up process! You immediately have full access to our build tools (WorldEdit, VoxelSniper, goPaint, goBrush, and many more including our very own Builder’s Utilities).

(to get to our community server, type /public or select the community server from the in-game navigation menu)

Member Build Servers

We provide our members with private build space to express their creativity and use to popular in-game building tools.  We also accommodate self-serve uploading and downloading of schematics and the staff can help you import or export an existing world for your larger projects.  In essence, we can function as your private build server.  Members can also use the community build server.

(to get to our member build servers, type /flat1  /flat2  or /void or select the member build server from the in-game navigation menu)

Job Board

Since we are a fairly large community of builders, thanks to DalenApps we have developed a job board to help clients connect with builders and developers in the community complete with its own logged messaging system.   Click here to go to the Builder’s Refuge Build Board.

NOTE:  This service is only to connect builders with clients.  There is no cost or percent commission to use this service.  We do not act as escrow to the client and builder.  Please take all usual precautions necessary when commissioning a build to protect yourself (both as client and as builder/developer) from fraud.
