I'll try and get in touch with him for some pictures.
I'd love some of those bricks myself. One can never have enough tan.

I believe the next step in giantism would be to build this in real life size...
Seriously, I wish I'd be mini-scaled to be able to visit this huge and yet only started construction.
BRILLIANT & BRAVO

The video linked to in my opening post was only a rehearsal of the interview but because the satellite van didn't arrive in time to do a live interview they missed their link up and could only send the rehearsal tape.
Here's a different article with a small number of photos. And yes, it contains a misquote.

He didn't give me any stats on the actual number of bricks used but I'm not sure I really want to know after seeing all that tan.
Hopefully the picture will take you to the flickr gallery I just put up. I'll add to the gallery as I get more pics from my brother. And I'll see if I can drag some stats out of him. Feel free to ask questions. I'll put them to him but it may take a while to get answers.

Glad you guys like it. I'll be sure to pass on your comments.
Just want to point out one thing, the odd looking basement sections are where landscaping will eventually be joined to the mill as it sits in a sort of geological trough and is banked on several sides. You can see the beginnings of contours in angled lines where the tan meets the grey.
