Confession. I have wanted to make a house completely out of LEGOs since forever. The long lines of solid color, the box shape, all of it is cool. James May, of Mike and Chris’ favorite show, Top Gear beat me to it, and that makes me sad. But, I can still bask in the glory of how he made it.
Personally, I would have put alittle more character into the outside of the house, but that would probably would have inflated the bricks usage from 3.3 million, to like 3.3billion. But whatever, if you have enough money and time to make it, you might as well make is awesome!
The weird part is that he furnished the inside complete with LEGOs too. Why? It doesn’t take a genious to know that LEGOs aren’t comfortable, why would you make a bed, or a couch out of them? Also, his house isn’t water proof. Did the people who made this even think? LEGOs aren’t made of rubber, they won’t stop water, why would someone think that? I’m begining to loose some respect for their efforts.
That window makes up for some of it. I think it looks cool. I wonder just how much light is coming through it though, and how much is artificial form the photographer. Whatever, I’ll pretend it’s all natural, so you get an extra point I guess.
Apparently there is no one to take this house though. The property they built it on want’s it’s land back, and LEGO Land isn’t taking it, mostly cause it’s impossible to move, which in turn is meaning no one is gonna take it.
It looks like little to no thought regarding the long term went into this project, which is sad, because something of this magnitude should be saved. If I lived in England, and had a few million dollars spare, I would have it moved to somewhere. Oh well.
