Artist Constructs Victorian House of Legos

If only some home builders were this dedicated.

Mike Doyle, a New York-based artist whose fascination with texture and decay might only be rivaled by his patience for mind-numbing minutia, has just constructed a 5½-foot-tall model of a run-down Victorian mansion made entirely of Lego blocks. (A tip of the hat to Curbed for leading us down the rabbit hole.)

Entitled "Victorian on Mud Heap," this meticulously designed fantasy home is the third in his series of Victorians, and took Doyle nearly 600 hours to create and approximately 130,000 Legos to build.
