#3 Extremely Simple Rope Bridge

Maybe the previous designs were a bit too much for the resources you currently have access to in your survival world. In that case, this simple Minecraft rope bridge design is perfect for you. Only made out of six different types of blocks, this bridge won't require you to put much effort into your construction. With campfire floors and lantern lights, this minimalistic bridge still has an appealing design.

How to build this bridge
To start, gather the following materials:
  • Campfires: 10
  • Lantern: 4
  • Smooth Stone Slab: 8
  • Spruce Fence Gate: 20
  • Spruce Fence: 12
  • Spruce Trapdoor: 2

Once you have all the materials and have cleared your desired build location, start by placing two trapdoors on either end. Between the trapdoors, place campfires spanning the entire length of the bridge. Extinguish the campfires by right-clicking on the fire with a shovel, and you should get a rope/wood-looking structure. Finally, place the light posts on each end of the bridge, as shown below, and fill the sides in with fences.
