If you have a passion for cars you may have heard about James May. The guy is producer and co-presenter on one of Britain’s best TV Shows, Top Gear. Also known as Captain Slow, James is more than just a guy with a passion for engines. He also loves LEGO and to prove that he’s serious about it, after beer with the “mates” he decided to build — entirely from LEGO pieces  — a real two-storey house, where he’ll live upon completion. Located in the middle of the Denbies Wine Estate, in Dorking, UK, the building is going to use 3 million colorful bricks, will feature a Lego toilet and LEGO furniture. – via

“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,” said James.

One response to this post.

  1. I saw this episode. Loved the bit where he discovered one lego brick that was the wrong colour. Can't remember the exact quote but it was something along the lines of “If you're the one who did this, I hate you.” I think he may have been getting on their backs a little bit….

    LegoLand couldn't take it unfortunately but I believe they still have the bricks.

    Me, I think I'll settle for a property in London, although I'll be working towards that for quite a while. Lego would get a bit uncomfortable!
