When it comes to building Lego structures, Alice Finch doesn’t kid around. She constructed an incredibly huge replica of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry from Harry Potter using 400,000 bricks. Yes, you read that number correctly.
Finch revealed the piece at BrickCon 2012 last October, and she took home the Best in Show and People’s Choice awards. It’s easy to see why. And Finch is ready to share her creation with the world now that she’s had some time to reconstruct the castle in her home.
She spoke with The Brothers Brick about the massive build and said it took her approximately 12 months to put together. She doesn’t want to know how much it cost. What I particularly love about her model is the number of details she added to the interior. You’ve got the kitchen with toiling house elves, the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom, the Great Hall, the scene where the centaurs run off with Dolores Umbridge and so much more. It boggles the mind.
Check out some of the details in pics after the break.
