FOR SALE: Igloo With a View!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Mold Doctor

 OK,

So with too much snow and nothing to do I decided I would build an igloo for Danielle (gf's daughter). Danielle and her bff were tired of the snowman they built with its boring stare, carrot nose and lifeless personality! Could u blame the kids??

So I mustered all the energy I could manage and pushed the pita chips and hummus aside and entered into the abyss...

I shoveled a huge pile of snow all along having the kids help by packing the snow and started to shape a round pile...

After the pile was a respectable 4-5' feet I used a garden handheld shovel to carve out an entrance, interior space and window...All along the kids packed and packed and packed the snow to create  a sturdy structure!

It was a great work out and totally an interactive event! The girls honestly wanted to spend the night in the igloo as it was their little escape! They called it their private "club" and even talked about creating a secret password and gave me (I suggested) an honorary membership as the builder :-)

All in all a great time!
