    Good job.
    I recommend putting the WiFi on top of the quinsy.
    The flat screen and PS3 can go in the far corner.

    Good video, I slept in a quinzee once, and that pretty much covers it. Instead of waiting several hours for the snow to settle, we lightly packed it down by walking on it with snowshoes, before digging out the inside.

    One good tip is to stick in a bunch of sticks, each about 1 foot long, all over the mound of snow before digging it out. That way when your hollowing out the inside, you know to stop as soon as you see the ends of the sticks. That way you don’t make the walls dangerously thin.

    These are fantastic, how about something on water in a survival situation.
