This Woman Builds Incredibly Detailed Replicas Of People’s Houses Out Of LEGO

Published 2 months ago

Is there a better way to let your creativity run wild than by building something out of LEGO bricks? You can create almost anything – vehicles, animals, robots, and one woman even got so good, she started creating detailed replicas of people’s homes!

Designer Shari Austrian started recreating people’s homes out of LEGO bricks and they don’t just look good from the outside – she even designs detailed interiors. Shari now sells the miniature homes on her ETSY shop and the prices can reach up to $3,500!

The replicas cost $1.25 per square foot, meaning a 3,000 sq ft home would cost a whopping $3,750!

Shari says that each of the LEGO pieces costs around 10 cents and the models can be made up of tens of thousands of pieces. Even though the replica houses sell for a hefty price, they’re very well worth it. But just in case you’re looking for something a little cheaper, the designer also sells exterior-only houses for around $1,500.

“I have always adored, collected and created all sorts of miniatures — they’re just so cute. From the time I was a little girl, I was building mini fruits, animals, and homes out of Play-Doh and LEGO,” said Austrian in an interview with TODAY Home.

To design the houses, Austrian uses interior and exterior photos  as well as the architectural plans

The designer is a perfectionist and says she values the clean lines, precision and interlocking strength of the bricks

However, one problem that the designer keeps running in is the shipping of the little homes. “I pour all of my passion and energy into creating solid, tiny masterpieces for my customers to enjoy. But my efforts are only one part of the equation when having to [transport them],” wrote Shari on a recent Facebook post. “I was a bit nervous about handing a model over to UPS but they assured me that everything would be just fine, that they package and ship lighting fixtures, etc. [However,] my model was destroyed. I flew out to Tennessee the following week to reassemble the model so it was as good as new but the whole experience was heartbreaking.” Let’s hope the UPS is more careful next time!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
