Every one handles unemployment differently. Some spend too much time playing video games, others apply for jobs obsessively. Jimmy Grey Jr. decided to build an igloo.

According to the Associated Press, Grey has been out of work for nearly a year and was looking for some project to keep him busy, so he built this structure in the front of his parent’s home just outside Cleveland.

This isn’t just any igloo, it’s a winter palace. There are four rooms with 6-foot high ceilings. He has a television inside that is powered by an electrical outlet inside his parent’s garage. Grey and some friends actually watched the Super Bowl from inside the ice cave. Here’s a video of the igloo’s interior.

But apparently the “best perk” for Grey is that his beer will never go cold. Who says unemployment has to be depressing?
