Hi everyone, I wanted to share with you the project I've been working on: A 5ft by 5ft model of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Wingspread", a home in Wind Point, Wisconsin built in 1937. I'm nearing the end of the build, and have been keeping a blog of my progress called "Building Wingspread". Follow the link if you'd like to see more pictures.

When complete, the build will be around 50,000 pieces. It will be at Brickworld Chicago and multiple Kenosha, Wisconsin area shows this year.
