A rainbow colored igloo made from an unlikely source (17 HQ Photos)

Over the holidays New Zealand native Daniel Gray traveled from his current residence in Canada to his family home where he had five weeks to kill with his family. Naturally, his mind began to wonder. After collecting a few hundred milk cartons, they filled each one with water and some food coloring and created ice-colored bricks. The seemingly simple project to make an igloo out of frozen milk cartons ended up taking over 150 hours and 500 ice bricks to complete. But the result is something spectacular.

    • Prometheus

      Dude, it's not made with milk and juice, they just used the cartons to make the bricks.

    We can't do that in Florida but that is really awesome

    • majorfathead

      Why would you rate this down?

      • J10

        Because, obviously you can't do that in Florida. Nobody was enlightened by the comment, it certainly wasn't funny, and it's best read in the voice of a mentally handicapped person.

        I can't build an igloo in Florida.. Ok, no shit. Next.

  • Boab

    It is middle of summer in NZ and it never snows like that there. Maybe he did this in Canadia?

    • Alicia

      Yep, it said that he traveled to Canada! 🙂

      • Emily

        No, it said he traveled from Canada to his family home. Which I would assume is in NZ since that is where he is from.

    • Mr. Milk

      Definitely Canadian milk cartons.
      Next level: Canadian Milk Bag Igloo.

    • HUH?

  • 2Dogs

    • http://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

      FACT: Canadians drink 100 gallons of Whole Milk a week.

  • Becky

    The man is from New Zealand and was spending time in Edmonton, Alberta with his girlfriend. Her mother wanted to keep him occupied so he made an igloo with his girlfriend.
