Maximum Height - LEGO Quest #9

This week's challenge on LEGO Quest is called "maximum height." The website said that it should be a vertical structure, that is standing alone, without anything supporting it."

The LEGO Quest website said that "sometimes structures built for height need to be wider than just one LEGO brick. You might think about how easily it would fall over if it was really thin, and how stable it is when you use a wider base.

"The idea is to have fun, this is not a contest, just build as high as you can, with the bricks that you have."

With that description in mind, Olivia built a tall house. It's the tallest one that she has ever made - most are about half that height.

The back of the house has different areas to relax - a garden area with trees, a pool, fountain, and places to enjoy eating outdoors.

She had fun with this house design, and it definitely challenged her to build in a way that she doesn't normally construct homes.
