Just in time for Halloween, artist Mike Doyle has created these beautifully detailed Victorian mansions out of nothing but Legos. He uses no outside materials when creating these houses, and one house can take up to 600 hours to make and uses 130,000 pieces to build.

Doyle says about his work that they "speak to the inherent unpredictability of those things which we call our foundation." He also mentions that "the piece offers no answers or necessarily any hope, but rather points to life’s fragility."

It is horror and so real!! Like it. 130,000 pieces ain't small number and I'm wondering how many bricks I need to build up my own LEGO house lol

My friend told me it costs 7 million legos to build up a two-story house but I don't understand how she figure it out. She just refer to movoto's lego calculator. I don't know what it is and what for. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

Nathan.
