Holy Crap!? A tiny house/cabin with walls and windows made of ICE??
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these photos! The idea is not so practical, but man oh man is this a cool little Norwegian fishing hut/ice fishing house. This one comes from the Norwegian architecture and design firm, Gartnerfuglen Arkitekter- try saying that ten times fast! Its call "The Unavailability Mobile Ice Fishing Hut" and its windows are simply chicken wire in wooden frames, where water is later filled in these forms, and frozen in place to create window panes. It takes two to assemble, as the photos show.
Again, it really doesn't make much practical sense (why not just use regular light weight windows?), but I love the daring and wild nature of the whole thing. Its a cool looking little greenhouse-esque cabin too.
