Description

An igloo, also known as snow house, is a form of shelter built entirely of snow. The primary material used in constructing an igloo is compressed snow since solid ice is known to be a poor insulator. The compressed snow gets shaped into blocks. These blocks are then arranged to form a dome. On the inside, the snow house is terraced so people sleep at the uppermost level, leaving the bottom middle area for working and setting the fire.
