How do you make an igloo?

I have the walls of the igloo down using the "Poof snow-brick maker",but can't seem to make the roof without part of the wall falling to the ground (if only they made a snow-roof maker!) It is going to rain in a few days, and then it will get something like fifteen below zero, so I want to finish it so that it will turn to ice and we can actually USE it. Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have to make the brick off the wall and then move it onto the wall. It must be cantilevered just enough inward to keep the center of gravity on the layer below AND on the seam of two bricks. PLUS you need to have it abutting the neighboring brick to have the friction to keep it from toppling over.

Have someone support it so it won't fall in. Gradually pack the snow on the roof...and you don't need to use bricks as the roof, just use smoothed packed snow. Overnight, it will freeze and become stronger.
