James May, the Top Gear presenter, is planning to build a house entirely out of Lego bricks. No big deal, you say. We've all done that. May has his sights set on something a little bigger – making a life-sized house out of the plastic bricks, including a staircase and a fully plumbed, working toilet.
Why? Because he can. In his upcoming show James May's Toy Stories (the creative department was out playing Nerf the day the name was decided), May will "take some of Britain's best-loved toys and put generations of families at the heart of some ludicrously ambitious adventures", according to the BBC press release. Recently he built a garden from Plasticine, which he cheekily entered in the Chelsea Flower Show.
May has no idea how many brick's he'll need, but is said to have "thousands" already. We have a feeling it'll take a few more than that, but we wish him luck. When it's done, May plans to live in the house for a couple of days to try it out.
