Home is where the heart is

LEGO builder ~J6Crash~ designed this model of his parents’ home and presented it to them as a Christmas gift. An impressive miniature representation of their Vermont home, the creation took a summer to design with Lego Digital Designer and support from a brother to help fund.

My House

The building looks marvelous with its dark orange coloring and dark roof (painted only for authenticity to the original), lovely pool, manicured gardens and large deck, and looks like it belongs on the cover of House & Garden magazine. Assembled from around 5,000 parts and measuring 17.5 in x 15.5 in x 8 in (44.7 cm x 39.1 cm x 20.5 cm), it works out to around 1 stud for every 2 feet. The builder notes their parents really enjoy it — now they just need to figure out where to put it.
