Easiest Demolition Job Ever?

After failing to find a buyer, the house built entirely out of Legos in Surrey, England, is being dismantled brick by mult-colored brick. Built by James May of the BBC's Top Gear, the home was never intended as a permanent structure and was built on a vineyard without the necessary permits. It did however feature a working toilet, shower and a "very uncomfortable bed." One visitor apparently made off with the Lego constructed cat.

Alas, the vineyard needs to grow its grapes and May had to sell or dismantle. Legoland was interested but could not afford the moving fee. So the 3.3 million Lego bricks are coming down and will be donated to charity.

What do you think: Silly waste of time or Genius tourist attraction?

R Factor

I wonder what the R factor of a lego home is. there is obviosly a lot of air in the brick.

I think this would make an ideal house for people who love to remodel.
