James May, a.k.a. Captain Slow on Top Gear, has a BBC show called James May's Toy Stories. After building an award-winning Plasticine garden and the world's largest model airplane, the next thing on May's list is a house built of Legos. A two-storey house. And he intends to live in it for a weekend.

The house will be built in Dorking, England and everything that can be made out of Legos will be made out of Lego. Said May, "I've got a man working on a flushing Lego lavatory. We think it's possible." Seeing that Legoland doesn't even have a house made of Lego – and certainly not Lego toilets – this should indeed be a "pioneering Lego cause." So far, three million Lego bricks have been contributed to the build, but May is looking for more in case you have any lying around.

      It's going to be built in the town of Dorking...sounds appropriate.

      Is it just me, or is there something about a lego toilet that doesn't sound very comfortable.
      • 5 Years Ago
      OMG, two of my favorite things! Legos and Top Gear! I hope they torrent this after it airs.

      Until Hammond crashes through it in a jet powered car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, Hammond has to build a Lego car. They are going to race and see who makes one work first.

      IT'S LEGO. LEGO is the plural of lego. it is, or used to be, printed in the basic literature that came with the sets. it's petty but since the company states it VERY plainly and emphatically, i have to go through life on this secret crusade. go paul revere! go tell everyone ! tell EVERYONE!!! YAY!!!

        It's also "story," not "storey."

      I think duplo would be more practical.

      Going to need a great deal more bricks. Mythbusters recreation of the 3000 pound Lego ball claimed to use 5 million bricks. A house and all parts of it would need hundreds of millions.
