Lost my house in Minecraft. Will it despawn?



  • What the title says. I'm playing the most recent version on Nintendo Switch as of 6/9/22 on survival mode. I made a house not too far away from my spawn point. I read online that a compass will direct you to your initial spawn point and I tried following it to its pole and it lead me to a biome I had never seen before, certainly not where I spawned.

    The world I have is set to infinite and I'm presumably very far away from my house. Will my house despawn if I go too far away from it? Is there anything else I could do to try to find it?



  • No, it won't.

    Despawning only applies to mobs and dropped items. Blocks themselves don't despawn, especially not anything built by the player.
