Building something flammable like a tree house or giant wool sheep sculpture? Insure your creation with this, a functional sprinkler system. The specs can get confusing, so here's a summary:

1) Figure out how many layers you will need to cover your creation, and build the bottom layer first. Remember these rules.

2) The first layer will always have a diameter of 1 block.
The second layer will always have a diameter of 3 blocks.
The third layer will always have a diameter of 5 blocks.
And so on...

3) Layers of odd numbers must always have a solid block at their center.
Layers of even numbers must always have a block of air at their center.

4) Make sure to leave a layer of air for water to expand.

5) To build ascending layers, simply put a block above the previous layer's air blocks.

6) Your trigger can be anything removable, really, but I just like using a torch. I also prefer to protect it with a glass block so I don't accidentally trigger it.

Finally, you can set this to go off automatically if you connect a flammable fuse to your creation, so the sand drops when the fire lights the fuse. This might be a good idea if your neighbor builds a fireplace or lava moat near your treehouse =/
