This is the stuff sweet winter dreams are made of.
Apparently, you don’t have to make a trip to the Arctic Circle to build your own igloo.
When New Zealander Daniel Gray went to visit his girlfriend, Kathleen Starrie, and her family in Edmonton, Canada, he was inspired to do something out-of-the-ordinary to keep entertained in the colder climate.
With the help of his girlfriend, her parents, and a few neighbors, Gray constructed a multi-colored igloo made from hundreds of frozen milk cartons in the family’s snowy backyard. If constructed correctly, an igloo should be strong, solid and secure.
But this one took the concept of the igloo to a whole new level of awesomeness.
“I wanted to keep him occupied, not with my daughter necessarily. I wanted to keep him busy with something else,” Starrie’s mother Brigid Burton explained. “I didn’t want Daniel to just be twiddling his thumbs while he’s here in Canada so I thought, this needs to be something that’s got some meat to it.”
The construction of this amazing structure took five days.
For those suffering the blow of the current bitter cold temperatures in the Midwest, an igloo may come in handy. So, you may want to get building. The igloo is the ultimate snow shelter.
