Eric Stevens, 23, of Rochester, New York, loves Downton Abbey. How much does he love Downton Abbey?

So much that when he found there was no existing Downton Abbey Lego set, he built one for his girlfriend as a Christmas present.

"The design took about 15 hours, altogether, and about four hours to actually put it together," Stevens told the Daily Mail. "All of the characters are Lego-designed parts, rather than custom printed pieces," he continued.

Stevens built the set using a digital designer, basing it on ground and aerial photos of the real Highclere Castle (where Downton is filmed), as well as floor plans of the building he found online. We love the obsessive detail of the set, from the barely-perceptible sneer on little Lego Thomas's face to the majestic sweep of Lego Matthew Crawley's hair.

Sadly, tiny withering put-downs from Dame Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess are not available as add-ons to the set.
