The Sustainable Refuge in the Sky

Built four stories high out of light and resistant wood, with a stainless steel exterior, the structure took five years to complete. It is a stunning design, and with its silver facade reflecting off the snow, the building is also low-carbon and environmentally friendly. Melted ice is used for water in toilets and showers, solar paneling and wind turbines are employed for power, and special care was taken while building to ensure minimal carbon footprint. Sounds great, right? Now your only challenge is getting thereā€¦.
