Is it one of those affordable apartments? A studio for a mere $1,000/month?

Someone should put an AC in the side of it and report it to the city.

Would adding a space heater run afoul of the neighborhood association rules on historic preservation?

Actually it is an igloo. It was constructed using blocks formed with a plastic storage container. The spaces inbetween the blocks were then fillied in. Below is the link to the timelapse proving that it is infact an igloo.

Having spent several hours building this ice home, the kids, as many as 6 Back Bay kids at a time sat inside enjoying chocolate chip cookies. What fun on a snow day! The ice house is still enjoyed by neighbors, passers by and many 4 legged friends!

Is that the blood of the children you lured in with your cookies?

It is lasting pretty well a whole week, only small 'modifications' (second doorway, pink inside), but its not melted nor given way to the kid seen sitting on top. The weather tomorrow will either reinforce it or wash it away... Bring on the snow and maybe we can make another unit and setup a condo trust.

The igloo stood up to the weather, kids, curiosity and yes the dogs for more than a week. The rain on Thursday added too much wieght to the roof leading to a cave-in. However on Friday someone partially rebuilt the walls: the compacted, evelvated floor and surrounding walls has given it a whole new look: anyone in need of an outdoor Pulpit?
