LEGO lamps and boxes are all well and good, but what would it take to really live a LEGO life? BBC personality James May, one of the hosts of the popular series Top Gear, decided to take his love of LEGO to the limits, and then a bit beyond that. May commissioned a house built entirely out of LEGO as a piece for his TV series, James May’s Toy Stories.
