Guy Turns 540-Square-Foot Basement Into Lego Wonderland

Here's something that sticks it to any ol' dinky midcentury classic or world's tallest tower: the so-called Garrison of Moriah and its 540-square-foot home base. Its creator, Gerry Burrows, took cues from the architecture shown in Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, turning his basement into a fantasyland of 250K Lego pieces that stands, at its highest point, 12 feet tall. "As I built I would get inspiration on cool directions to take," Burrows told Wired UK. In searching for a house, he added, "I told our realtor that I needed a ‘Lego room.' He thought I was joking at first."
