Step by step guide on how to build an igloo.
It took approx. 2.5 hours to build.
Video of an igloo I built with the help of my children in a field near my house in January 2013 with explanation of building method.
We built it using washing up bowls which were packed with snow into to form the bricks for building. Once each one was laid, we packed snow between the joints and smoothed more snow over the filled joints inside and out to bind the structure together.
After each layer of bricks was laid, they were shaped with a kitchen knife to get the required angle for the next layer.

Thanks for watching.
