Jason Middaugh and his daughter worked six months to recreate the house in the holiday classic, “A Christmas Story.” 

He scoured the internet sourcing the 2,000 blocks, which features the “fragile” shipping container, Ralphie, in a bunny suit and the leg lamp.

In this Dec. 12, 2017 photo provided by WSTM-TV, an interior view of a model of the house from "A Christmas Story" rests on a floor in Jason Middaugh's Marcellus, N.Y. home. WSTM-TV in Syracuse reports Middaugh's small family project to recreate the house from the classic holiday film turned into a six-month undertaking. He says he and his family scoured the internet to find the 2,000 pieces needed to construct the home. Lego reviews set proposals when 10,000 people support a project on their special site. The Middaugh family's set has received nearly 9,000 endorsements. (WSTM-TV via (AP)) (AP)
