  1. How many years on cables? I'm curious.

    I put stainless on my house before I even took it home last year. It was less than $100 and they installed them. I also see them advertised on Craigs place for $50.

    Thanks for the extra pics. Always nice to see how other houses are built. Enjoy your new house.
  3. Rookie Wheelhouse question

    The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW. I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.

    Guess I had never heard of such a thing before, or even it being mentioned on here on what not to do. I do know on some of the new yetti houses (2018) the furnace is now under the front couch. I didn't give it a second thought, not saying your wrong at all, I wanted the furnace placed for the best heat distribution. I rarely sleep in mine and I built it for me not the next guy.

    Same thermostat I have as well, works good so far. Regulations for furnace placement? Why on earth would there be? One of the reasons I built my own yetti vs buying one was the furnace location. I put mine under the front couch as well, nice even heat blowing towards the door and the rear of the house. Yetti's had a one duct furnace under the front cabinet blowing back, poor design IMO, hot up front cool in the back, already had a house like that. Ice castles also have poor duct placement, some models are better than others, and I get why because the layout determines it to some point. You will love your furnace where its at.
  6. Fish House Build

    What I did for speakers in the ceiling was get two 1" thick rings made for each speaker and fastened them together it made enough depth so I didn't have to cut into the ceiling insulation. I wrapped the ring in 3M black carbon fiber vinyl since it matches the black diamond plate theme in my house. I didn't want to loose the insulation in the roof by cutting a speaker hole. Any real stereo shop can easily make them for you, unless you have a router stand. I bought mine from "e" bay custom made to the inner and outside dimensions I wanted for less than the price of sheet of mdf.

    Looks very nice. Anymore pictures? Price is right inline, especially being hydraulic lift. Weight is very similar to my 8x16 Yetti, mine was 3200 weighed at the elevator scale. Any connection to Legend enclosed trailers?
  8. Wheel House build

    First house I built was a 6-1/2 x 16 yetti.. no bathroom because of no space. House I built last year is a 8 x 16 yetti, this one has a bathroom in the v front. Main reason is I didn't want to drag a portable along to use it for a bathroom, and some places you go its too busy to even pee outside for guys and impossible for the women. Didn't give up much space, custom built a slider door and a moveable toilet lid/bucket stand.

    Thanks I found them.
  10. Wheel House build

    Looking good, if its like mine was everything seems to take longer than it should. I had to buy at 3 Menards last fall for enough useable packs of cedar so that's nothing new, make sure you buy extra there will be some unusable pieces hidden in the 6 pack. Some packages you would only get 3-4 good pieces out of. I repackaged and returned them as defective.

    Looks very nice, I like the tin and the leds, nice touch. Can I ask where you bought the lid supports/stays? I need some for the house I built last year. I need my wheel well lids to go 90 degrees.
  12. 2018 Yetti Re-design

    This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
  13. Atv Tracks

    You want the wider tracks. I've had tracks for years and the wider the better.
  14. Drop down tandem toy hauler

    I've only seen one toy hauler fish house that was big enough for a ranger/general and that was years ago down at the ice fishing show. Full hydraulic and that thing must have weighed 6000lbs empty.
  15. Wfco Converter output?

    I haven't checked my draw yet, it will be on the list. Now that I know I need a fuse in that location it will be actually charging the battery. My house has not left the shop, still finishing it up.
