Introduction: How You Will Make a Big Igloo

If you ever wanted to make a big igloo and didn't, now you will

Step 1: Find Your Source of Ice

Usually it can be snow or a lot of freezers in one place

Step 2: Put Your Ice in One Place That You Can Get to Pretty Easily

Put your ice in one place that you can get to pretty easily.

Step 3: Very Careful Step:

    This isn't very informative. The pictures are meaningless, and the descriptions are pretty obvious...

    I am going to be honest this Instructable was stupid I live in a snow belt and I have built many igloos and you are right on your instructions but please keep Instructables serious.

    Although an 'igloo' is built with ice bricks, I have built a shelter out of snow using this method and it works. We built a pile of snow then poured water on it a couple of times to make a nice ice shell. I wish I could remember what it's really called...

    It's called a Quince, or some variation of that.

    Pretty sure a quince is a fruit. I believe what your thinking of is a Quinzhee, but you are right. An igloo is made from bricks of snow, and a quinzhee is made from digging out snow.

    got to love the: Caution The entrance tunnel may narrow or the ceiling may even collapse due to softening snow cause by temperatures near freezing or rain. Inhabitants of snow shelters are advised to have a snow tool available to clear blocked exits. these things always make me lughff

    failed on the link, just ask wikipedia or google.

    I have one of those dinosaurs near my house, outside of a buisiness

    that is the shortest description i have ever seen describing how to make an igloo, its actually alot more complicated than that :D

    this doesn't explain anything. it should be removed.taking up bandwidth.


    Man, that's one of the best instructables ever!

    what the hell do these pictures have to do with anything?

    erm...i fear a collapsed roof though...i think i'll just share mine with a penguin...
