It”s so cool to see someone”s childhood hobby become a passion and career that lasts a lifetime.
This is the case with Jeffrey Pelletier, a Seattle architect who traces his love of design and architecture back to his passion for playing with LEGOs as a kid. The plastic brick blocks inspired him to pursue his dreams of building larger structures, though his love of LEGOs still lasts to this day. So when he and his husband decided to renovate their home, he made sure that there was a place in the house that was specifically designed for his favorite hobby…
This was the first floor of the house before they started remodeling.
And here it is after the renovations. Looks pretty awesome, right?
It”s a beautiful house, but this isn”t even the best part…
The basement didn”t have a lot going on before the reno. But it would end up being the coolest room in the entire house.
Pelletier built the ultimate LEGO room, where he keeps his huge collection of plastic brick pieces.
He houses 250,000 pieces in 153 bins and 189 drawers.
Each container holds different sets — because with this many LEGOs, you have to stay organized!
Some are divided by color, others by type.
All combine to make this the ultimate LEGO-building station.
Pelletier uses the LEGOs (and his architectural skills) to build incredible structures in his spare time. Like this LEGO complex.
Or this LEGO library.
And even a model of the home itself…
It”s spot on!

The happy couple and their son have moved into this amazing home, and you can be sure that they have plenty of nights of epic LEGO builds ahead of them!
