HARMON, Ill. -- There's a family in Harmon, Illinois who built a luxurious igloo in their back yard, complete with a fireplace.

Wayne Larson built his igloo the modern way, with a blowtorch.

He burrowed into a huge snowdrift in his back yard and after ten hours, he had a multi-room igloo, complete with fireplace and a hole in the roof to let out the smoke.

Best of all, it was a balmy 33 degrees inside.
