A man in Brooklyn built a “Boutique Winter Igloo” during the recent city-wide blizzard, which was then listed for $200 a night on Airbnb.
Advertising art director Patrick Horton came up with the dome structure in a Greenpoint, Brooklyn backyard, which was complete with blankets, plastic-bagged pillows and lights.
"Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays the Snopocalypse of 2016's most desirable getaway. Hand-crafted, and built using only natural elements – we're offering the experience of a life time in this chic dome-style bungalow for you and bae,” Horton said on the post.
Fresh powder covered the dome’s peak and a tiny pine tree hugged the exterior.
However, Airbnb didn't take long before removing the listing, and Horton confirmed that the company’s living standards were not met.
Airbnb sent an appreciative takedown notice to Horton that encouraged his next listing to include a roof that doesn't melt.
“We are happy to see that you guys are staying busy and having fun during Blizpocalypse. Unfortunately, your igloo, while very well constructed, has failed to meet our occupancy standards and has been removed from search results. Be sure to pick a place with running water, electricity, and a roof that doesn't melt,” Airbnb said.
