Jeffrey Pelletier, a Seattle-based architect and owner of Board & Vellum, renovated an old home built in 1902 and turned a portion of the basement into an amazing lounge that comes equipped with organized storage for his 250,000 LEGO bricks and accessories. Connected to the LEGO room is a well-stocked bar to help with some of the larger, stressful LEGO builds. The massive project was built by N & R Construction, with casework created by Evan Scott Cabinet and Furniture. More photos from Houzz‘s recent tour of the home are available to view online.
Dubbed the Lego Lounge, the basement includes a bar, a media room, laundry, storage and a guest bedroom. “We really got a lot of bang for the use of that footage,” says Pelletier. Although it can be a hassle lowering a basement floor the way Pelletier did, he ended up with an extra floor of living space without having to expand the home’s shell.
Shelves keep Pelletier’s Lego pieces neatly arranged. Kellen is only 1, so he hasn’t developed an interest in playing with the Legos yet — or removing them from their carefully organized cases.
