Because of my occasional artworks on walls of Lego blocks, I get a lot of e-mails about Legos used in unusual ways, for animation, for sculpture. But I recall that while I was first making my canvases with them I had the thought that they would actually insulate quite well as a traditional building material.
So this James May guy is giving it a shot using over 816 MILION Lego blocks to construct his home. I'd just like to know how much it all costs, because my Lego dealer refuses to give me a bulk discount and those little bits of plastic are EXPENSIVE!
Pics of the process are here.
