After spending 80 hours, using more than 6,300 Lego pieces, and spending about $2,000, Harper reconstructed Fort Gibraltar, the site of Festival du Voyageur.

"It was just a really fun project to create," said Harper.

He built the structure slowly over time and said the process was even therapeutic.

"It's really fun to make anything out of Lego," he said.

Harper's Fort Gibraltar Lego project will be on display this summer at Fort Gibraltar and during next year's Festival du Voyageur, he said.
