Follow along as I build Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School masterpiece "Wingspread" out of LEGO!
Saturday, April 25, 2015
I've made incredible progress this week. The guest wing roof is complete, along with the giant pergola on the back of it. Today I completed the pergolas on each side of the children's wing as well.
I took a stab at some trees this morning. I'm quite happy with the large oak that sits just next to the terrace. This thing is quite heavy - I used a large portion of my leaf supply on it, but I'm loving the full look of it. It uses lengths of flex tube to provide stability.
All I have left to build now is the children's wing roof, the poolside patio, and I need to finish filling out the garden.
As I near the end, finishing each section, I get to experience great waves of relief and satisfaction. When I started this a couple years ago, I had no idea I could be this happy about a LEGO model. Along the way, this has been so many things to me: constant frustration, a continued locus of contemplation, an immense challenge of my abilities. I look forward to sharing the finished model with the world.
