Very easy to assemble, the Garden Igloo comes with a step by step instruction guide. In fact, it’s so simple to build, one person can do it themselves! The tiny shelter doesn’t need foundations and is ideal for sitting on a patio, and, thanks to its geometry, it encloses the greatest volume possible using the least amount of materials. Nonetheless, for such a lightweight [5] structure, the Garden Igloo is surprisingly strong and stable.
