As noted very early in the video, this first skyscraper of mine was required to be simple in its design so that I could get it done as quickly as possible. Without that self-imposed mandate, this project could have taken months. Instead, it used up about 4 evenings of initial design work, another couple sessions of optimization for parts efficiency, strength, and ease of assembly, a single long evening on Bricklink, and less than 12 total hours of actual building. The end result is comprised of nearly 8,000 pieces & has a nearly 47" high roofline, not including stuff on the roof.

One down (up?), several more to go. For the moment, however, I'm going to take a break from building towards the ceiling and do a little more work under the tables!
