BBC quoted Gregg as saying, "I just thought it was a cool snow fort. I enjoyed creating it with my other children." Gregg and his wife Katie have nine children; they have adopted eight kids and ninth in an adoption pending. The igloo was built for their oldest child, 19-year-old Zahara who uses a wheelchair.

He added that the children help each other in daily family activity.
