James May built a full-size house out of LEGO bricks, and then lived in it for 24 hours.
In his show called Toy Stories, James May started off on a brand new and ambitious toy challenge where he, with the help of some engineers, attempted to build a full-size house out of 3,000,000 LEGO bricks!
During the planning process, James May explained that LEGO was specifically designed to have just enough strength to be held together by its unique brick design, but needed to be able to separate with the thumb pressure of a three-year-old. So, creating a full-size house should therefore be structurally impossible, right?
So, what May and the engineers had to do was build the LEGO around a passive wooden frame structure that would ensure safety and enough rigidity to hold up the several million LEGO bricks that were required to construct the entire house!
But, how would it be like to live in for 24 hours?
