Lego Prefab House Mimic

I have been reading the book Prefab Houses published by Taschen. Don't see myself getting one any time soon so, once again, I go to our Lego collection.  Here is my inspiration. The houses are designed by Jean Prouve and are called Maison Standard Metropole. This is from a colony in Meudon, France in 1949. 

Another example. is my version. My son made the car.


Living room with TV. Big windows and a 
nice view so one can birdwatch.


Watch out, Lothario coming into bedroom. This is our new musketeer minifig.

Luckily, he left his sword in the kitchen.

Chest of drawers and lamp.



Sink detail with mirror.

Toilet detail with TP.

Tub detail.

Our other new minifig the wizard is knocking at the door.

Legos are my way to totally relax. You can't be thinking about too many problems in your life if you are desperately trying to find a way to make Legos look like stone walls or bathroom fixtures. And where is that perfect piece? Don't have one? Root around in the buckets until you find a reasonable facsimile.


  1. I love what you've done with your Legos! Very clever. The compact kitchen would work well in a miniature studio apartment. I also think it is very cool that you and son collaborate on projects. (One question: what is the Lego piece that is set to grab the unwary as he/she approaches the toilet?)

    1. Hi Neen, Are you thinking about the prong thing at the sink. That is supposed to be the hot and cold water taps. Yes, my son is a hoot and very helpful.

  2. I love the fact that you have a little Lego toilet! This just solidifies that I'm glad I talked my son out of selling his Legos!

    1. Thanks a lot. Just say no to selling Legos. Too much fun.
