This question already has an answer here:

Whenever I build something out of expensive blocks (like emerald blocks), a silly Enderman walks past and steal a block. Is there any way to prevent this, without ruining the creation (putting water around it, and spamming torches everywhere)?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Endermen will only steal naturally occuring blocks (like dirt, stone or grass). Build your house of planks or stonebricks or something similar and you should be fine.

    @ratchetfreak Then this answer needs a source that confirms it. At least a newer source then that answer. – Batophobia Jun 27 '13 at 17:39
