There are few structures in the United States with the history and reverence of The White House, designed by James Hoban. On July 16, 1792, President George Washington chose this James Hoban design from six competing designs from renowned architects. This six-story Sandstone structure was meant to command respect for the nation from citizens and foreign visitors. Construction took place from 1792 - 1800 and it was rebuilt by Hoban following the fire of 1814. The assembled White House model stands 8.8" (22.4cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.
- Architectural replica of the real-world White House
- Booklet included with details on design and history (English language only)
- Measures 3.9" (10cm) tall, 8.8" (22.4cm) wide and 5.6" (14.4cm) deep

- July 10th, 2015Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Simple beautifulMrJansson | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set has just everything you would expect from an architecture set. Amazing building techniques, stylish design and of course very interesting facts and history. The first thought I had was; Well, it´s seems kinda cool, but not really special. When you´ve finished it however , you discover how beautiful it actually is. And the size of it! Much bigger than I imagined! All in all a great addition to the collection and a must have for you Americans. If you´re thinking of buying this set I would definitely recommend you to buy it as soon as possible since it´s been available for five yeras now. Well done LEGO and the Architecture Team! Keep up the good work!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 1 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55The White House
- January 9th, 2013Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Lots of character!jonizzzle | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!This was actually my first set from the Architecture series but I held off on building it (I built the Farnsworth House first). The detail of this set was magnificent and the building techniques were pretty clever in depicting the White House's character. There was one point where I was assembling a pretty abstract portion of the house and after a few steps I admired the Lego designer's building methods because I would've never thought of that! This actually took about an hour and a half taking my time and I actually made a few mistakes miscounting the correct location of a stud or a brick but those mistakes were easily spotted once the pieces start fighting each other. This was a VERY fun build and awesome display. Highly recommend this set in this price range.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55The White House

It took him 6 hours, and he finished it, perfectly :) He's a dedicated hardcore Lego builder for sure lol. He was so excited when he got this!
