The world’s largest igloo is now sitting in Green Bay after more than two months of difficult team work by a group of prospective record-setters.
“I think we were all really relieved,” says group leader Paul Steckart. “We broke out some champagne, had a couple drinks and kind of just sat there and stared at it.”
The current world record was set in Canada by a group of engineers in 2008. Their igloo came in at 25 ft 9 in across and 13 ft 8 in tall.
The so called Bigloo that Steckart’s group has built in Green Bay registers in at approximately 27 feet across and 17 feet tall.
“It’s been 9 weeks since we started on it.”
Throughout that time they have received all the proper paperwork from Guinness and just need to get all their documented information in order.
The next and final step – they will have the Bigloo officially measured Monday.
“We’re going to have it on camera through one of our local TV stations. We’ll have a notary and a witness.” explains Steckart.
