First post here so, hey, hi!
In 2015 I finished building my new house in Germany. Well, I didn't 'really' build it but with the help of two amazing architects I designed my dream home. It's now a reality and since then I have been thinking that with all the architectural plans, it would be awesome to create a large LEGO clone of the house.
Problem is, I have no idea where to start. As in, I think I can do it in LeoCAD and then hopefully I can get a list of pieces and I can go off and buy them but the problem is, I have no knowledge of techniques that might be needed to build a house in lego. So, I can scale the house more or less (due to sizes of pieces) to a 50cmx50cm square, but I then have no idea what's best:
* which bricks for the wall and how to lay them;
* do I need to glue them?
* bricks for internal walls?
* how can I create a ceiling that opens up to see the inside;
So, I am looking for references to maybe books, online references that may aid me in understanding what's involved. Also, once I have a list of pieces I need (LeoCAD will give me that, right?) where can I get them? Any comments and suggestions, warning and other experiences would be great.
