Step 1:

First you go to a place where there are a lot of trees and a snowdrift.

Step 2:

Then you dig in the snowdrift and make a igloo that doesn’t have a top or one side.

Step 3:

Next you go get some branches from a cedar tree because they are good insulation or it helps keep the heat and warm air inside your little shelter for your family.

Step 4:

You put the cedar branches on top and all the sided of your igloo.

Step 5:

Make sure you dig all of the snow off of the ground in your igloo so you’re not sitting or lying on the wet snow. (You can build a fire inside to warm it up and dry the ground)

Step 6:

You can make a door out of cedar trees to, to keep your heat in.

    This would be great if you actually provided pictures detailing each step instead of copying the same ones over and over. Let me know if you need any help!

    seems a little lacking on some things. I know what cedar looks like, but some dont, and what are safe dimensions to use for the interior? how little space can I have before I suffocate? how much before I waste heat? This is a great idea-builder for those who already know how to make igloos, but not a very detailed instructable.
