Lego Building Process

I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time. Last Xmas I got back to building with Lego. At the time I spent 2 days building the Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van. The time really flew by. Part of it was organizing the elements and putting them together. It was also hard to deny getting back to my youth when I would spend days putting structure together with lego and wood blocks.

As I was building the VW Van, I would take shots to remember the progress. I really enjoyed viewing the progress and seeing the underlying structure. Every couple of hours significant progress would be made. Fast forward to now and I’m just followed the same process building Fallingwater. The biggest difference between the two builds for me was I spent a lot less time organizing the bricks. For the VW I spent hours organizing the bricks by color and size. For Fallingwater I just dumped everything before starting with the instructions.

Below I’ve posted some of the pics that I shot for both the VW and Fallingwater. At the time I posted them first on Instagram and secondly on Flickr. What shouldn’t be understated is that people really enjoy commenting and favoriting that stuff in real time. While I wasn’t going to stop before I finished, I found the encouragement helpful plugging away.

This is taking a bit of time to organize

I had to open all fifteen bags to get to page six

    Creating 3D models with Lego pieces can be more painstaking than it looks, depending on how large and sophisticated the models’ designs are. Nonetheless it allows for a lot of creative projects to flourish.
