Man Builds Impressive 250,000 LEGO-Brick Mega-Structure

Inspired by fantasy buildings featured in sagas like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings , LEGO fan Gerry Burrows has built an awe-inspiring giant structure called the Garrison of Moriah.
Ever since he was just a kid, Gerry Burrows dreamed of building something big using LEGO bricks, but it was only after finishing college that he realized he finally had the freedom to pull it off. He began thinking about how he finally had the space and financial freedom to fulfill his childhood dream ‘without a little sister to rampage through my Lego creations’ so he called his realtor and told him he needed a LEGO room. As soon as he bought his first house he unpacked a box of his old LEGO bricks.
Even more impressive is how this LEGO master managed to create his Garrison of Moriah with very little planning. He made no initial plans, on paper or computer, but simply started assembling the bricks, focusing on individual structures. As he kept building he got inspiration on what direction to take to make his masterpiece looks as cool as possible. Amazingly enough he suffered no disasters during the entire building process.




The Garrison of Moriah is currently 8.5-meters-long, covering a third of Burrows’ basement, stands between 2 and 3.5 meters tall and has a depth of between 60 and 150 centimeters. Its maker estimates he used between 200,000 and 250,000 LEGO bricks so far, because it’s currently a work in progress: ‘It’s still growing. The bridge isn’t complete, nor is the other end of the bridge. And I’m building a fleet of custom ships.’
