Have you ever wondered how many bricks it would take to make a real house of lego bricks? Well you can wonder no more.

An estate agent from America has created a calculator to work out just how many brick it would take to make a mirror image of your own house.

He has worked out that the average American home would add up to more than 10 million blocks worth of Lego. This is without adding in external walls and ceilings.

If you were to buy 100 bricks from the pick a brick store in Lego stores it would cost you £19. To build the average UK semi-detached house it would cost £1.1 million pounds! Proving that lego is not a building material of the future, the average semi-detached brick house in the UK costs around £199,00,00.
