And so the last day came… at last! Time to make all final adjustments, clean out all trash snow, ice, tools and everything else that was not supposed to be in there. And fix the bed! We like to be very accurate when we do things, so when it was time to put the wooden […]
The day before the last day… It was starting to feel now, the time pressure. On this day we built the bed frame and Martin continued with the lights. We finished up some loose ends and started to feel really good about the atmosphere in the room. Check check check it out!
The last pice of the ice wall was placed and glued. The glue we use here, when gluing together ice, is ordinary tap water. You just have to get it really cold before you pour it on, which frankly isn’t very hard up here. We made a big effort to get the walls as ready […]
The bad thing about having a timelapse camera is when you forget it at home. That’s what happened on this morning. That’s why you can’t see how we got the medium sized UFO up on the ice pillar. Maybe it flew by it self? We don’t know… This day was also the day when Martin […]
On the fourteenth day, they started to create the slightly smaller UFO. We put the snice block on the lathe and started to make it round. Then we paused that work for a while and continued with the walls. It looks like there is not so much work done, but believe me, there are a […]

Ok, so we haven´t been that good at updating the blog. But we will try to improve! A lot of things is going on, both in the suite and outside. Today, the biggest challenge was to get our ufo off the ground and up on the beam of ice. This was actually probably the biggest […]
This has been a really intense weekend, with a lot of work and a lot of parties. Our ufo has been spinning, the chisels has been carving, and the lathe worked really well. Without actually ever having seen a ufo, I think this is as close to a real one we can come with snow […]
