Place your 'ice bets'

There is still time to enter the competition and win great prizes, including a weekend stay in a UK Passivhaus B&B, and Passivhaus prize packs to be won. Which box will retain the most ice? Will it be the super-insulated green Passivhaus box? Or will it be the red box built to Scottish Building Standard?
