This Artist will Create an Exact Replica of your House with LEGOs
And the end results are absolutely insane.
There are two types of people in the world when it comes to LEGOs: Those who absolutely love to build with them, and those who strictly enjoy looking at them. Sometimes building them is obnoxious (how do you not drop those tiny little pieces?), but getting to see fun models of something you care about is oddly satisfying in the end. Which is why this LEGO artist on Etsy is one we can all appreciate.
Little Brick Lane, an Etsy shop that’s been online since 2017, has generated quite the hype in the past few months. Why? Because this woman can build your house with LEGOs. That’s right, an exact replica of your house purely with this popular toy. And the end results are absolutely insane.
Shari Austrian, the artist behind the shop, offers two models for you to buy. The first is a Custom LEGO Model Home for $1,500 where she will build the exterior of your house. However, the big doozy is her second option where she builds the exterior and the interior of your home for $2,500. That may seem like a lot for a LEGO home, but after glancing at the meticulous details of each home, the price tag almost seems worth it.
In an interview with Apartment Therapy, Shari mentioned the idea came to her after originally building a LEGO model of her home as a celebration of her family moving. Since then she has built four LEGO model homes, and has launched her Etsy shop online. Each project takes about 8 to 10 weeks to complete, and they are absolutely magnificent to look at.
So if you’re looking for an original idea for a special someone in your life—maybe for your parents, or even a close loved one—this may just be the most original gift you will ever give.
