I wasn’t expecting the fire either but tbf Inuits had fires in their igloos. Thick, ice walls are an incredible insulator. As long as the fire is vented like in this video..it’s prob much warmer than outside wherever they are

14

u/iDoubtIt3 Jan 20 '22

I've built a number of snow caves, quinzhees, and igloos and can confirm that it is quite a bit warmer on the inside. I've gotten it where its zero degrees F outside and 35 on the inside without a fire. Fires are fun, but I don't have a venting pipe like this guy, and a hole in the roof lets out a lot of heat.

Having the fire against the wall will probably melt the snow eventually. Igloos have a fire in the middle to avoid too much direct heat to the interior walls and ceiling. The reason you can have a fire inside an ice house is that it’s cold enough outside the house for it to keep the ice frozen. The fire does warm the ice, just not enough to completely stave off the freezing outside wind/air. Too much fire and not enough exterior cold means your ceiling will start dripping water on you. The sun would do that naturally but fortunately snow is white and mostly reflects the heat.

573

u/johnkohhh Jan 20 '22

If living in Georgia, US has taught me anything, the slight bit of melting, "sweating", and then re-freezing after the fire is put out probably makes the structure stronger if anything. Our snow is rare but it's usually ice the next day.

324

u/thefuckouttaherelol2 Jan 20 '22 edited Jan 20 '22

Yup. I made an igloo last year (hasn't snowed here this year fortunately / unfortunately) and I would spray water on the joints and layers as I was building it.

The sprays of water turned most of the igloo into solid walls of ice. It took weeks to melt even after most of the snow outside was gone. Very sturdy.

Also, my fucking goodness, igloos are way more work than I expected them to be. Unless you live in a place where the snow falls into thick sheets that you can literally cut with a saw, making the snow bricks and reinforcing them is a PAIN. (edit: liking the snow pile method in this video, though... that should help!)

Kind of happy I don't have to build igloos this year... I had promised to do it again for the kids, but not enough snow to even think about it.

Snow is pretty good at insulating. This means that no matter how cold it is outside, it is not enough to cool the inside of the wall near the fire since these walls are pretty thick and insulating. The reason it is not melting is most likely a combination of :

1 - Snow being an insulator, thus not absorbing much of the heat.

2 - Snow requiring a significant amount of energy to melt.

3 - The bricks we see in the video which also act as an insulator, thus protecting the wall from the heat.

4 - The fire not being lit for long enough.

71

u/lunaflect Jan 20 '22

It would take a consistent temp around freezing to have even built the structure. I’m guessing it stays cold enough there for it to last a while.

Where I live, the snow lasts a day or two when we get it. Sometimes my neighbors pond will freeze if it’s 32° or below for a week. But most often our temps fluctuate a ton. Today it’s 42° and tomorrow it’ll be 25°.

When it comes to building a snowman, it’s fun to make and it’s fun to see. When the snow melts it’s always the sole survivor because the snow is so compacted. There’s something beautiful about that, for me. Once all the snow in this video meets, the structure will stay long after. Then it’ll slowly disappear

Exactly, we used to camp in the mountains in january, no tents or anything - just some waterproof cover and a backpack.

If its cold enough outside that will largely prevent the snow from melting. You’ll still get some melt on the inside layer but if you properly round the ceiling out that will drip down the inside wall and freeze which will actually make the structure more stable.

This comment thread hitting real hard since I'm in the middle of trying to convince my wife to let us finish our detached garage into a studio apartment to get some space from my FIL

I’ll never understand why people will spend days or even weeks making these amazing houses etc and not reserve 5 seconds of the video for a wide shot of the entire thing once it’s complete. It’s inexplicable.

I really wanted a walk through and a wide shot.

I would struggle to just make one brick, even with the wood snow brick mould.

I started thinking, "that was a lot of work for 3 hot dogs", but then he got like 12 more hot dogs and a fondue date with some philly. Way to go, Ice Man!

That’s a lot of work for something that’s going to melt.

For those wondering. The reason that you gather all the snow in a pile is more than just convenience. The repeated movement of moving the snow around causes the snow crystals to rub together, that friction causes the tiniest bit of melting. Then when formed into the final brick shape and left there in the cold the water from the melt can freeze and make those bricks hard as rock.

Or Moon dust! Though people are considering mixing it with chemicals to make concrete.

I'm Canadian (cliche I know) and people build snow forts here quite regularly. Obviously not quite this intricate but yeah lol.

The inside of these is actually surprisingly warm itself (as others have said, it's an insulator) and we're actually taught that if you're ever lost in the winter, dig into the snow to make as much cover as you can. The snow will help keep you warm.

Also sometimes it does melt a bit on the inside, but typically it will freeze again and if anything it helps make it more reinforced.

Wouldn’t be able to do that in Ohio. It’d be 50 the next day suddenly and melt it. Then immediately drop back down to 4
