The best comment I read on this was the wonderfully ironic: ” … and you thought it was made of Lego.” Having recovered from that realization, here’s the next hit: This is a picture of ↑Two Story with Basement, ↑Mike Doyle‘s first Lego creation (not counting what he did as a kid). Meanwhile he has added two more projects to his abandoned homes series: ↑Victorian with Tree and ↑Victorian on Mud. More at Mike’s blog ↑snap (including very insightful essays) and at ↑his MOCpages page.
Especially interesting for anthropologists: Mike does not cease to emphasize that his creations wouldn’t have been possible without the vast Lego online community or scene. Support from there comes at least on two levels. On a psychological level, sharing enthusiasm and cheering on. On a hands-on technical level by sharing techniques and solutions to particular building problems.
