LEGO House by James May in the UK
James May is a toy fanatic from the UK and he's building his own real LEGO house.
It’s taken him millions of LEGO pieces so far and probably millions more to go. When I say a "real" house, I mean a REAL house with a working toilet and all!!!
UPDATE: Workmen started breaking down the structure which consisted of 3.3 million Lego bricks after no-one showed any interest in taking on the building.
Plans for Legoland to move it to their theme park fell through because transport costs were too high and despite a final Facebook appeal for someone to take it, no-one came forward.
The plastic bricks are to be donated to charity once the house on the Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey, has been demolished.
A spokesman for the estate said that the house had to be dismantled - because it did not have planning permission.

Thank you Brian!
