Made from locally sourced timber and recycled windows, the structure cost less than $6,000 to build; during the winter months, it can be towed out onto the frozen lake aboard a wooden raft. During the warmer months, it sits on the land, perched atop removable concrete blocks. To see additional photos and to read more about the project, go to Dezeen.
