This house in upstate New York is completely encased in ice
 
This house encased in snow and ice up to 7 inches thick may look fake, but photographer John Kucko assures his social media followers itís anything but.

The beach home in Webster, New York, about 5 miles from Rochester, is located in a ďvery remoteĒ area near the shoreline of Lake Ontario. In the spring and summer, itís a weekend getaway; but when it comes to winter, itís more of a hazard than anything else.

Winters are wicked in that area.

I'm surprised the house is structurally sound if that happens on a regular basis. Ice is heavy!

Why are the 2 neighbor houses completely unaffected ?

OY

Maybe those are lived-in during the winter, with inhabitants clearing the ice and heating hindering the build up in the first place?

The article says that neighboring houses have retaining walls. Also, if the other houses are inhabited, then residual heat (plus the residents periodically clearing off the ice) may also be responsible.

ETA: Oops, should have refreshed.

My Mom grew up right across Lake Ontario from Webster, on an island. Her front door was less than 10 metres (or so) from the lake. She has several photos showing the front of the house looking similar.

Lake Ontario can be an unforgiving force.

And farther below Lake Ontario
Takes in what Lake Erie can send her
And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
With the gales of November remembered

... you're welcome for the depressing earworm.
