Creating A Custom LEGO Home – Getting Started Howto Tutorial


Allrighty, here’s another Lego tutorial from Jaystepher here and some of you have been asking how do I build my custom houses. I’m actually going to show you. We’re going to do it from the ground up. So I’m actually going to build a full-sized Lego house. The first thing we’re going to start off with is base plates. The first thing we’re going to start off with is base plates. Of course we all have these. Maybe a couple of these. And some of these tiny ones. Now they do make those 15 by 15 inch base plates but I do not have one. Now they do make those 15 by 15 inch base plates but I do not have one. Now they do make those 15 by 15 inch base plates but I do not have one. So I’m actually going to piece one together out of these scrap pieces that I have. So I’m actually going to piece one together out of these scrap pieces that I have. So, let’s kind of get started here. Si I’m just gonna make me a base plate for my house. Si I’m just gonna make me a base plate for my house. And of course, that’s where we want to start at. And of course, that’s where we want to start at. Now in addition to that, everyone was asking me how do I start my house. Now in addition to that, everyone was asking me how do I start my house. I usually use these type of plates. I usually use these type of plates. They’re just 1 by plates. This is a 1 by 10, 1 by 8, 1 by 6, 1 by 4, 1 by 3, 1 by 2, and a 1 by 1. Now if you’re lucky to find one of these little angle things, corner plate, you’re good. Now if you’re lucky to find one of these little angle things, corner plate, you’re good. Now if you’re lucky to find one of these little angle things, corner plate, you’re good. Now if you’re lucky to find one of these little angle things, corner plate, you’re good. Sn then you got those right there. So this is what we’re going to be using for the Lego house. As to layout the floor plan of it. As to layout the floor plan of it. As to layout the floor plan of it. Kind of like a footer to a real house. Kind of like a footer to a real house. You don’t have to use these, but when I start putting in the floor, the tile floors, kitchen cabinets and stuff like that, these are easier to use. So let’s actually get started. The first thing I want to do is figure out what I want to do with my house? How am I going to build it. The first thing I want to do is figure out what I want to do with my house? How am I going to build it. So one of the things that I am going to build, I would like to build me a nice …. No, maybe a two-story house. Maybe? I’m not sure if I’m going to build a two-story or one-story yet. But one thing we need to is establish is how we’re going to do it. The first thing that I want to do is I want to build a two-car garage, and I want to put the garage kind of back here but it’s going to be attached to the main house here. and I want to put the garage kind of back here but it’s going to be attached to the main house here. Kind of like a traditional American-style home. So one of the things that I’m going to start with is figuring where I’m going to put the house at. is figuring where I’m going to put the house at. A bad idea is to start at this very edge here. I never do that. My house will never be this big. I mean I could but it would be kind of silly. So one of the things that I am going to do is I’m going to start building the layout of the house. I’m going to start building the layout of the house. Now also it’s useful to actually grab maybe a 1 by 4 block. Now also it’s useful to actually grab maybe a 1 by 4 block. Now also it’s useful to actually grab maybe a 1 by 4 block. Now also it’s useful to actually grab maybe a 1 by 4 block. Several of these as a matter of fact. Any color will be fine just to layout the windows and doors. Because I want to know how to do my doors and windows. You know just to put them I know where they’re going to be at. Because I want to know how to do my doors and windows. You know just to put them I know where they’re going to be at. So let’s get started laying out the layout of the house. So let’s get started laying out the layout of the house. Alright, so I got some of these pieces. I will be using this for the garage. I will show you how to build the actual garage door, because everyone’s asking about garage doors, bathrooms, kitchens. So I’m gonna do the works. I don’t really care much about building the backyard. It can be done. I can just get more base plates to do that. So, let’s get started. One thing that I’m gonna do is just keep a… maybe … go 2 by 2s. I want to build at least a decent house on this. To start off with the corner piece here at the very top corner and kind of work our way around. Since I’m not using a big giant base plate, I have to offset some of these pieces. Since I’m not using a big giant base plate, I have to offset some of these pieces. So I’m starting where the garage is going to be at which is going to be right here. So I’m just going to start setting in pieces. And right about here… Now, I going to do something different. I actually want to build a regular two-car garage. I actually want to build a regular two-car garage. I’ve seen one car garages which are just fine and dandy, but I think it be better if I built an actual two-car garage with two separate doors. but I think it be better if I built an actual two-car garage with two separate doors. That’s very easy to do. One of the things that you got to do is you got to figure out what you’re going to use for your hinge. I usually use these. One of the things that you got to do is you got to figure out what you’re going to use for your hinge. I usually use these. I to build everything inside. Unlike the Lego Creator kits which are just … I don’t know why they do some of the corny things they do in those. Unlike the Lego Creator kits which are just … I don’t know why they do some of the corny things they do in those. I need to find me a 2 by 3 base plate and put it here. So we got the 2 by 3 plate. So we got the 2 by 3 plate. Now most Lego cars are usually six units wide. Now most Lego cars are usually six units wide. So let me see if I can find a six-unit wide or at least something with six units. So let me see if I can find a six-unit wide or at least something with six units. I’ll just use that blue one. That car’s going to come in there like that. So this is going to be the center piece. Because we’re going to have to attach the hinge to the door. So there we go. Now this in here is going to be tiled so I’m not going to be worried about that this is going to look like here. Now this in here is going to be tiled so I’m not going to be worried about that this is going to look like here. We’re going to come in, and one of the things I want to do, and I’m going to do put lights. Just fake little lights on the front of my house. So I think what I’m going to do is come here and do this. is come here and do this. That’s a very big garage. The way this is going right now I think
maybe leaning more towards a two-story. So we’re just start doing this. I think we’re going to go two-story. It will be a lot better. Let’s just build a traditional house. It will be cooler. Stuff like that. I’m running out of pieces. I might have to look for more. Now, when I build my doors, I’m going to put an exterior door right here. This is going to go out on the patio. Now, when I build my doors, I’m going to put an exterior door right here. This is going to go out on the patio. So one of the things i’d like to do, when I use a door, and I thought I had found one I guess I didn’t. Let me go see if I can find one. So when I do my doors, here’s a basic door. Just a classic door that you use to see. No you could just put blocks underneath this, and set this door on top, but I like to tile underneath my doors. so we don’t want to do that. One thing I will do, is I want to come in here and put a spacer right here. One thing I will do, is I want to come in here and put a spacer right here. One thing I will do, is I want to come in here and put a spacer right here. You’ll have a little 1 by 3 gap. Now I’m also going to put an interior door to inside the house. Now I’m also going to put an interior door to inside the house. Whereas the the patio going to go? Well I want the patio to be around six units. Well I want the patio to be around six units. Maybe eight units deep. Let’s go 6 units, I think it will look better. So my best bet…. Now I’m also going to plan that there”s going to be a kitchen, and there’s going to be kitchen cabinets up in here. I think I’m going to put my kitchen and dining room back here. So I would need to probably get a 1 by 5. Well there’s no 1 by 5s. So what I’m going to do is just take a 1 by 3, So what I’m going to do is just take a 1 by 3 and a 1 by 2. Place them in like so and we’re done. Now I can get started on the rest house. Then again I don’t want to do that. Let’s just do this. Now as you see, I have a way to get into the garage, Now as you see, I have a way to get into the garage, and I have a door outside from the garage, and I have a door outside from the garage, and also have a door that goes into the kitchen. Let me get started and let’s finish up the rest of the floor plan shall we. Okay I just finished up the first story of the house. Okay I just finished up the first story of the house. Actually it came out pretty good. This will be a
two-story I’ve just decided. So the first thing we got is the two-car garage. So the first thing we got is the two-car garage. This is going to be a kitchen. Dinning room, eating area. Dinning room, eating area. It takes you on the back patio here. This is going to be at downstairs bathroom. This is going to be the living room, and the entrance way. Now I have some stairs. Now I was getting questions on how I actually put the stairs in here. Well I usually put the bathroom underneath the stairs. Well I usually put the bathroom underneath the stairs. I’m just going to set my stairs like this. And there you have it. So when you put your landing up here, it needs to work out perfect. Everything is the right height. I’m probably going to do is put the toilet probably back here. I’m probably going to do is put the toilet probably back here. Or maybe the sink and the toilet back here. I’m not sure yet. Or maybe the sink and the toilet back here. I’m not sure yet. Kitchen. I’ll probably put the kitchen sink here. Kitchen. I’ll probably put the kitchen sink here. Maybe the oven here. And see, and I saw…. I remembered the gentleman’s name. He actually made an actual fridge which I’m probably going to do that here because I want to get more realistic into this. Also this is going to be the fireplace. I like to have a real chimney fireplace. I don’t want some dinky little silly thing coming out of the top of my house. So it’s actually going to be … you can see down through it. So it’s actually going to be … you can see down through it. My house will be probably about 12 inches or 14 inches tall. So it will be pretty tall. My house will be probably about 12 inches or 14 inches tall. So it will be pretty tall. So there’s the first story. Now you can see I have a lot of doors. This will be double doors. Now you can see I have a lot of doors. This will be double doors. Here’s a couple of doors here. Here’s a couple of doors here. As you may see, this is actually starting to look like a floor plan to a house. As you may see, this is actually starting to look like a floor plan to a house. So map out where you want your windows at, So map out where you want your windows at, and that’s what these are for. Like I’m going to put a door here. and that’s what these are for. Like I’m going to put a door here. and that’s what these are for. Like I’m going to put a door here. So I’m just going to set this here for a door. Maybe a window. I might put a window here. Maybe a whole bunch of windows here. You get the idea. Once I’m done with that, we’ll be good. The next video, I’m going to be illustrating will be the garage on actually on how to build the doors. You know in the kitchen and bathroom and all that. So you guys will get to see how I do this from start to finish. You know in the kitchen and bathroom and all that. So you guys will get to see how I do this from start to finish. So just add and subscribe to me. Add me as a friend and subscribe. You’ll know what I’m doing. I’ll give you more details on actually how to build this stuff so thanks for watching. I’ll give you more details on actually how to build this stuff so thanks for watching.

  6. I am going to attempt to build my daughters families house and yard in Lego and I will have several questions as I go along. First I am 63 and have been a Lego fan since they first came out and when you could only get them from Europe. Have several sets including the first train set getting power from middle power track. Anyway when you build a model which is permanent do you glue the bricks?
