the life-size house uses over three million bricks and features a staircase, toilet and shower. may said once it was completed he intended to live in the temporary construction for a few days.
the LEGO house is the latest toy challenge that james may has undertook as part of his BBC series james may’s toy stories. other projects included the world’s first plasticine garden, which won the people’s choice award at the chelsea flower show, and the world’s largest model plane. the show also created a scalextric version of the brooklands 2.75-mile racetrack in weybridge.
