Etsy is chock-full of hand-made arts and crafts to peruse, but I gotta say, I think this is one of the coolest products I’ve seen on the website. A designer named Shari Austrian will build a super detailed replica of your house of out LEGO. Austrian’s Etsy page is called Little Brick Lane, and she got the genius idea when her family was building their own house.
Her twin boys (like most kids these days) loved playing with LEGO, so Austrian decided to join in on the fun and build a mini version of the family’s new house. She had so much fun she decided to make a business out of it in late 2017.
Austrian typically takes 8-10 weeks to complete each LEGO project, and she uses interior and exterior photos and architectural plans for inspiration. The incredibly intricate, one-of-a-kind pieces cost at least $2,500. If you’re looking to go the cheaper route, exterior-only models run about $1,500 and up.
Austrian gets into the nitty-gritty of each house and doesn’t overlook any component, including flowers in the yard and appliances.
I think I might have to get one of these of my childhood home!
