A few posts back i mentioned how Top Gears very own James May is building a house totally out of Lego bricks for his show ‘James may”s Toy stories’, I now have a few more pictures of the building process. For structural reasons the building has a timber frame on the inside, i would also guess this maybe for legal reasons too. The bricks to the building are being made away from the building but look to beĀ the same dimensions as a standard breeze block, This will clearly save time and hopefully make the build quicker than doing it single Lego brick at a time.

You can also see in the photo a working full size door! The whole building is said to be using more than 3.5 Million Lego bricks, Now doing a quick bit of maths here and yes that is more than you get in a standardĀ Lego Creator Model Townhouse. Now to start work on a K’Nex bulldozer to knock the building down when he has finished with it. More pics should be up soon!


As you may have heard already Top Gear’s very own James May is embarking on a strange challenge of building a full size two-story house in the middle of Denbies Wine Estate, in Dorking entirely made of Lego pieces. More than three million Lego bricks have been delivered to the site and he is on the look out for volunteers to help him with the build. The house will be life-size with a staircase, toilet and shower, and May said once it was completed he intended to live in it for a few days. More info on the challenge can be found at:


I have offered my assistance in the building process and i will be supplying my life size Duplo construction site. (I am joking i do not intend to lend him my life size Duplo construction team as they are busy building me a Duplo mansion..)
