James May of Britain’s show Top Gear is set to move into a house made of Lego soon. Apparently, the idea came up over a beer. I would have loved this as a little kid, and I definitely enjoy it now. It seems to be a normal wooden framed house with Lego wrapped around the structural members. It should be interesting to see some interior shots if they ever come out – I really want to see how that Lego toilet would work. Maybe from this Legos will inspire a new generation of prefabricated building materials.

A side note: There are holes in the facade – maybe Ronchamp inspired?
