From the Manufacturer
Replicate the home to the nation's Head of State. 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 9" (22 cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this set is the instruction booklet. In addition to building instructions, it is full of history tidbits about the whitehouse as well as photos.
If you like lego buildings, then I'd say this set is a must have for you. When finished the set is rather small, and there are no minifigs. I wouldn't recommend this for a child, the play value for them is fairly low, it has no minifigs. This set sits on a bookshelf in my place. If fifty dollars is too much for a bookend, then I would recommend a different lego set. There are plenty of others that sell for fifty which have alot more bricks and minis. Overall though, it's a good set, just more of an adult set.
The drawings were simple and broke down the construction into small easily duplicated steps. There was a simple logic to the construction and as the building took shape he became more focussed and patient in his search for the pieces that matched the drawings. Not once did he become frustrated or had major difficulty. Although it is a bit pricey, I would recommend this Lego White House for any child who likes to work alone and enjoys solving puzzles.
The model itself (excluding the base) is 9" wide and maybe 3 or 4 inches tall. It's relatively small at but what it lacks in size it makes up for in detail. The pieces are smaller than the typical Lego set and unlike most other Lego series it does not have any mini-figures. This Lego Architecture series is geared towards designers and adults as much as it is for kids.
This was a good introduction to the Lego Architecture series and I am likely to buy more in the future. 4.5/5 stars.
Upon learning of my mistakes I had to deconstruct and correct my problems. Again to all reading this, haste does make waste. Going further again I found a problem as I discovered missing pieces. Again I searched the web and requested the missing pieces and unfortunately construction was in abeyance. A week and a half later I received the pieces and 45 minutes later the building was indeed finished.
The final product is accurate and of great detail. As an accurate historian I would have liked to have the West Wing added to the structure. I enjoyed constructing this historic piece and will continue to build further pieces in this series. The White House is a very accurate depiction of American architecture.
