Lego Church

My granddaddy sent an email with these photos this week -- this is truly amazing! (and, no, he didn't build this! just forwarded on an email....)

A few quick facts:
How long to build it? It was about a year and a half of planning, building and photographing.
How many pieces of LEGO to build it? more than 75,000
How big is it? About 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 30 inches (2.2 m x 1.7 m x .76 m)
How many LEGO people does it seat? 1,372
How many windows? 3,976

It features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony, restrooms, coat rooms, several mosaics a nave, a baptistry, an altar, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.

And we know a couple who helped supply the "builder" with her Legos! In fact, Lydia said that the lady has "them" seated in the audience!
