Man builds igloo that puts man caves to shame

WORCESTER, MA (WHDH/CNN) -

It's been said "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade." But what about when life dumps heaps of snow on you? Well a Western Massachusetts man has answer for that too.

Call it a man cave or call it 'Club Ice,' either way, you can certainly call it big and cold.

"As long as the natural snow keeps coming, we'll be in business," says Michael Kozlowski of Worcester.

He has built a number of igloos each winter only using shovels. But this one is his best yet.

It has a TV, a couch, and a lamp that doubles as a hand warmer.

"It really brightens up the room, and it's really hot, so if you put your hand right there for a couple seconds, you'll warm right up," he adds.

The key, he says, is safety in the form of a 4x4 holding up an umbrella of wood, 12-feet high.

"This way, we ensure no collapses, it's always going to be safe and it's easy to maintain because you never need snow for the top half," said Kozlowski.

He Started in November, by mixing ice rink snow with manmade snow that he makes in his family's backyard.

Inside the igloo, you can see layers, ust like an iceberg. So when winter's bleakness gets you down, Michael says, don't run from it, embrace it.

"People may think it's crazy but it's a good workout, you're doing something creative and when you're older it's something you'll remember. Something cool you did while you're young."
