James May Rises To House Building Targets

Recommended Posts

Top Gear presenter James May is looking for volunteers to help him build a new house in Surrey - made entirely out of Lego bricks.

As part of his BBC series James May's Toy Stories, he plans to build a two-storey house in the middle of the Denbies Wine Estate, in Dorking.

More than three million Lego bricks have been delivered to the site.

May will host a building day next Saturday, when members of the public can help him with the project.

The house will be life-size with a staircase, toilet and shower, and May said once it was completed he intended to live in it for a few days.

He said although the house would be temporary, there had still been various "planning hoops" to leap through.

Two months ago James May built a garden out of plasticine

"I've got a man working on a flushing Lego lavatory. We think it's possible.

"Things like power supply, sanitation and plumbing coming into the house are as they could be for a real building... everything within my Lego house must as far as possible be Lego," he said.

May said although he already had thousands of Lego bricks, he could not be sure there would be enough.

"So if people do have bricks that aren't being used that they would be happy to donate to a very worthy pioneering Lego cause, then we'll be happy to take them off your hands."

The event follows two other successful toy challenges which saw May build what was said to be the world's first Plasticine garden, which won the People's Choice Award at the Chelsea Flower Show, and also the world's largest model plane.

How much does he get paid by Lego for this?
