Wow Pete, the puzzle explanation was harder to follow than the puzzle. I just looked at the picture and it looked to me that the base was 3X the width/depth of the pedestal, which along with the description gave the equation x^3=(3x)^2 with x being the number of blocks long the pedestal was. Simply solve for x and then use that value in x^3+(3x)^2 as the answer.
