    I think it'd be pretty tough to build an igloo cause of how the top curves. Me and my boys made a fort outside our apartment a couple years back and weused a big (clean) trashcan for pillars and then our neighbor bought some thing to mold snow into the shape of bricks so we could stack 'em right. Waitedfor a cold night and sprayed cold water on it and it froze solid [​IMG] that was some quality work

    You need the right sort of snow - good and deep and compact.

    You can use a spade (not a shovel) to cut the blocks and a saw to tidy them up - makes light work of snow.

    The shape kind of naturally happens but the hardest part is the block in the middle - the last part. You wouldn't be the first person to knock in themiddle 4 feet by accident.
