Family members gathered at a reunion in Eastern Minnesota built a formidable snow fort, with thanks to a John Deere tractor.

Members of an Eastern Minnesota family used a John Deere tractor while exerting their efforts during Christmas vacation to build a structure fit for them and their visiting kin's residential purposes, a local television station reports.

The new home has two entrances, parallel rooms, hallways, chairs and skylights – all of which is made of snow that Adam Flink of Stillwater had plowed into an enormous heap with his John Deere tractor.

"No air conditioning needed," Stephen Shealy of Georgia told television station KARE. "We were joking about building a fire but something tells me that's not the best idea."

Prior to this vacation, Shealy, who is from Georgia and Adam Flink’s brother-in-law, never built a snow fort. What they constructed is so big they talked about requiring a map so they wouldn't get lost. Family members also joked about having done such a good job they could put the home on the market, which family members who are real estate agents could assist with.

"When we get tired of each other we come out here and dig snow," one relative told the Minneapolis-St. Paul television station. "It's a wonderful time."
