I am currently sorting my Lego parts into colour, as opposed to having three unsorted 80 litre capacity boxes.
However, this is a tedious process and yesterday I wanted to see if this was actually worth it. So I built this. It only took an hour, and the sorted boxes made it a lot easier. So I'll continue until it's all done.
The building itself is based on the hundreds of office buildings that sprung up in the 1990s. They were usually fairly small with two floors. The ground floor was usually brick but the first floor was often tiled with slate and sloped at odd angles. This particular one is based on a building not too far away from where I live. It used to house an engineering firm till it went bust in 2008.
The building is modular and i'll furnish it shortly.

The building is well done. As to the sorting system, I did that several years back, the biggest pain is keeping up with it as you tear down and rebuild. I perpetually have around 30 quarts of unsorted stuff at all times. I will suggest, though, that you get a few trays for certain smaller items so that you don't have to dig through the bigger boxes to find the 1 tiny part you need to finish an idea.
