How many LEGO bricks would it take to build a real house? If you are a LEGO fan you might have considered this question. After all, it would be real fun to build a real house out of LEGO! Wouldn’t it? But how many LEGO bricks would such an endeavor take? And how much would it cost?
Well, wonder no more! There are obviously some LEGO fans working at Movoto.com, the online real-estate agency, because they created this handy calculator to figure out how many LEGO bricks would it take to build your house out of LEGO, and also, how much it would cost. Give it a try!
Fun, huh? Movoto shares the following on their blog: Has your inner child ever dreamed of living in a LEGO house? With a little imagination and hard work, building a new room or extending an existing room would be easy—and most importantly fun. Of course, a home built with millions of brightly colored bricks might not sit well with your Home Ownders Association. But when has an HOA ever made anything easy? At the Movoto Real Estate HQ, LEGO held a special place in our childhood. Boats, airplanes, and cars–we’ve built them all and tore them apart to rebuild them again. At least once, we’ve mused about building a real-life LEGO house…
Our house is 1,459 square feet, so according to the LEGO House Calculator it would take almost 9 million LEGO bricks to build, and cost close to a million dollars. And that’s just the exterior of the house (exterior wall and roof), the interior walls would be extra! I knew LEGO was expensive, but wow! I could buy so much more real house for that much money!
You have probably heard about this already, but there is at least one person who attempted to build an entire house out of LEGO bricks. Below is a video showing how the LEGO house was built. I don’t like the exterior of the LEGO house – it’s pretty ugly in my opinion, but the interior is quite lovely.
If you are looking for a house, check out Movoto! They may not be able to find you a dream-house made of LEGO, but they would probably understand the needs of a LEGO fan for plenty of storage-space and lots of room for displaying your collection.
So how much would it cost to make your house out of LEGO? And how does it compare to the cost of your current house? Share your results in the comment section below!
