Daniel Gray, a New Zealander visiting Canada to meet his girlfriend’s family, found a very unique way to spend some of his time during their cold December visit. With the help of his girlfriend (Kathleen Starrie) and her family, he built the most amazing thing in their Edmonton backyard.

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.

And so the construction began. The couple, along with help from Starrie’s parents and even a friendly neighbor, spent five days building what you’re about to see.

They started out by clearing out some snow to create space.
