Hello Tim,

fantastic house. I think there is no radiator inside. ;-)

Best wishes Micha

Hi Micha. No heat in this house!! It was minus 35 celsius and I remember that the camera and I were frozen stiff after a few minutes!

Very interesting. What was the temperature?

Timothy K on March 13, 2011

It was 35 below celcius and a stiff wind to make it more like about 45 below! Too cold even for me!

Really nice work, I must say

Timothy K on April 4, 2011

Great work is right. I'd hate to be the one building it in the middle of winter! Cheers Tim

so cool

Timothy K on April 29, 2011

Yeah it was downright cool. Nothing like standing on the ice in the winter with a nice wind to help things along!! Cheers from Winnipeg// Tim

Yep, too cool, pun intended. Your cold is much colder than my cold in NEPA. Two years back I was out in the woods cutting firewood in -26C. Unusually cold for these parts. My hands turned death white. I thought frostbite for sure. An RN friend assured me nothing more than Raynerds syndrome.

Cold is indeed relative.


Timothy K on November 23, 2011

Well Bob let me tell you... I've seen minus 75 celcius with the wind chill factor and there's not much you can do to stay warm. I worked on the Dewline for 9 years but mostly indoors. I have frozen many parts of my anatomy and now pay the price for that. Go figure that I hate winter!! Tim
