About this creation
August 1st 2009

I have completed building the oldest of the Alabama Power Corporate Headquarters buildings. Pictures are available through this website of the actual building. These are current day photos, so there are more power company buildings than there once was. I did the orginal building that has the dark red roof and gold Electra statue on top.

The building is approximately 34 inches tall and sits on a 32 x 65 stud base. Approximately 6,000 LEGO elements where used.

I am currently building cars from the 1920's to display around the building.








April 21st 2009





Here is how my internal construction looks. I am building it 1 stud wide, but then every 6 bricks high and I adding a row of 2 stud bricks and tying them together with black plates. I haven't decided yet if I should go in and floor some of the levels...




Front facade of the building and statues of Power, Light, and Heat.


I think I may go back and add 1-2 more floors to the building...what do you think? (actually in the pictures under August 1st you can see that I did go back and add 2 more floors to it)

That's fantastic. The details, the roof, the authenticity. A diorama including those 1920s cars you mention is surely something to look forward to.

Quoting Mackenzie B. the first pic looks digital
Well, I took the picture without a background so I had to do a lot of photoshopping to clean it up, but it's the real thing. Wesley
