In The LEGO Neighborhood Book, you’ll create buildings with real-world details like cornices and facades, and try your hand at interior design by filling your buildings with furniture and light fixtures. Then add the finishing touches to your models with plants, traffic lights, scaffolding, and park benches. Snap together a few houses, shops, and apartment buildings to create your own neighborhood!

Inside you’ll find:

  • Complete, step-by-step instructions for four multistory buildings
  • Dozens of inspiring ideas to use in your own models
  • Mini builds for a recliner, old-time lamp post, traffic light, and more
  • A gallery of the authors’ designs

For ages 10+
