Rent This... Err, Lego House?


A two-story house constructed of 3.3 million plastic Legos was demolished Wednesday. Perhaps the practical lack of insulation or running water kept it from the rental market?

The 20-foot-high home was built in Surrey, England, on land belonging to a vineyard. According to the SF Gate, it featured a kitchen, with Lego appliances such as a toaster and bread bin, a bathroom and bedroom complete with bed and slippers. There was a lovely "stained glass" (read Lego) window. Pets included! There was even a resident cat - made out of Legos, of course.

Who was behind this madness?
