wheelhouse blueprints

7 posts in this topic

I'm going to build a wheelhouse this summer and was wondering if anybody has any blueprints that they would like to share or where a good place to buy some would be.

I built my wheel house 3 years ago, I also could not find any plans available anywhere. I went to Milaca unclaimed frieght with a note pad and a tape measure. I must say my house turned out better than I thought it was going to be when I started.

The buddy system is best. I would find someone who has built one who lives by you or works with you.. ASK a million questions. Hopefully you know which layout you want. I have built 2 houses now and been inside several others prior to my builds. Each time i pay attention to new ideas / layouts etc. Here are some simple ground rules or suggestions;

2X2 walls 16" OC

2X4 cieling


110 /12V& gas light

110 & 12V outlets

catch cover holes

thermo payne vinyl slide windows

rubber roof

alum siding

drop down trailer

vented heater

V Front is my personal choice

Foam insulation

Green Treated Floor 5/8 thick plywood

Other considerations inside



stove / oven

# of holes and where (PLAN AROUND YOUR FRAME)

Double doors if you haul wheeler??

White luann plywood on inside panneling.

indoor outdoor carpet works best on floor.

good luck

Do a search for gordons landscape and fish houses. He is out of watertown Mn. He sells the blue prints for frames and fish houses.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
