Ontario Mom Builds Epic Igloo in Her Backyard for Her Kids

As a child growing up in Canada, many dreamed of living inside the snow forts we created while playing in the snow.

For a few children, their dream came true when an Ontario woman built an igloo in her backyard for her children to play in.

Elizabeth Sayed, a mother living in Vaughan, created a colorful igloo during the latest restrictions as a fun way to teach her children about Canadian history and how Inuit people build igloos out of snow, not ice, to s shelter.

In order to poke fun at the housing market, Elizabeth posted her creation on social media, announcing the sale of the igloo.


“Exquisite newly built detached home for sale in prime Vaughan location. A steal for $800,000,” Sayed wrote in his caption.

Sayed further sells its location, saying it’s in a great neighborhood with parks, schools, and the freeway nearby.

The igloo is also fully furnished, with a sofa that converts into a bed and a functional kitchen.


“You don’t need a TV when you can watch Star Wars through a telescope,” jokes Elizabeth.

It took about a week to fully construct the igloo, with Sayed only having two hours a day to work on it while his children nap.

The neighbors were interested in visiting the colorful house, but unfortunately the igloo does not welcome visitors at this time.

Sayed mentions that she dedicates the igloo not only to her children, but also to her late aunt who passed away in December 2020 due to kidney failure. She asks people to donate to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
