(Newser) – It's quite the man cave. Jimmy Grey has been out of work for almost a year and needed a project to stay busy. So the 25-year-old laborer took advantage of the heavy snowfall this winter and built an extreme igloo in the yard of his family's Cleveland-area house. His four-room creation has 6-foot ceilings and an entertainment room, complete with a TV powered via an extension cord from the garage.

Grey also ran wires for cable television with surround-sound stereo. He tells the Plain Dealer that candles help add ambience for nighttime get-togethers with friends, and the freezing temperatures mean that the beer never goes warm.
