  • Man to live in the 1st house made entirely from Legos

    Who lives in a house like this? James May to stay in the world's first house made entirely from Lego

    While the outlook remains gloomy for much of Britain's property market, here's a house that should brighten things up.

    James May's colourful Lego home, complete with a fully plumbed Lego loo, bath and giant bed, is finally taking shape.

    If building work goes to plan, it will be the world's first full-size house made entirely from Lego - and the Top Gear presenter has promised to live in it.

    The house, which started being built on the Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey on August 1, is due to be completed at the end of this week.

    The TV presenter said: 'I'm planning to stay there for two or three days, or until it falls down - whichever is sooner. I'm pretty relaxed about it, but will just have to be careful moving around.

    'If I wake up buried under a pile of bricks, I'll know it's gone wrong.'

    Speaking from the vineyard, Mr May said: 'The idea first came up over a beer, when we were talking about what we would have built as kids if we had enough Lego.

    'Your imagination is always bigger than your stockpile when you're a kid.

    'Up until now, the largest thing I've ever built with Lego was probably a plane or a battleship, because that was all I could build with the amount I had.'

    Members of the public have been involved in the initial stages of building work and professional builders are now taking over, laying the bricks during a six-day construction process.

    Over two million Lego bricks have been used so far.

    The Lego house is being built as part of a new BBC series called James May's Toy Stories in which the TV presenter takes Britain's best-loved toys and uses them in new adventures.

    May said: 'For too long now we have regarded the great toys as mere playthings.

    'It's time to use them to bring people together and achieve greatness. And I bet it'll be a right laugh as well.'

    A recent attempt to build the world's longest model railway stretching 10 miles from Barnstaple to Bideford, North Devon was thwarted amid claims that vandals and thieves tampered with the track.

    The presenter won an award for a Plasticine garden he created at the Chelsea Flower Show for an earlier show.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

        Dude will have problems when it comes to rain and other stuff, like I have when playing with lego boats in the sink.... it gets moldy (I think thats the word) it messes up with plastic, unless he coats the whole house in a special water proof sealant.
