What this New Zealander built while visiting Canada to meet his girlfriend’s parents will make you truly jealous and wish you had some snow in your backyard if you don’t already. Daniel Gray with the help of his girlfriend, Kathleen Starrie and her family will show you how much better winter is in Edmonton.

“I wanted to keep him occupied, not with my daughter necessarily. I wanted to keep him busy with something else,” Starrie’s mother Brigid Burton said with a laugh, “I didn’t want Daniel to just be twiddling his thumbs while he’s here in Canada so I thought, this needs to be something that’s got some meat to it.” The couple, Stattie’s parents and a jolly neighbor spent five days together building what you’re about to see.

Gray says he is very proud of his accomplishment but, he’s also very happy the job is finally done. “It was a lot of work so, it’s nice to actually have it there,” he said, “It’s been joked about that I have to sleep in it but, I don’t think it’ll be happening.” Give this a share on Facebook before you go.
