Custom Built 17' V-Nose Ice House $12,500

7 posts in this topic

I am moving to Florida and have to sell the love of my life. This unit was Custom built by my father and I. We have both been carpenters most of our lives. The ice house is located in Spirit Lake, Iowa on the IA/MN border and was only used one season.

The ice house sits on a newly reinforced crank down trailer. It has 4 catch covers and a large sight fishing hole. The interior is knotty pine, it sleeps four, has an inverter for running 12v and 8 plugs and a converter for running the Honda 2000 generator that comes with it. It includes a three burner propane stove, table that converts to a bed, rattle reels and the front of the V-nose is the bathroom.

$12,500 I have that much into it, the trailer and the generator. The house pulls great down the road. I hate to get rid of it but there is not much ice in Florida.

Yes it is tongue and groove, the house weighs 4500 lbs and has reinforced spindels. Just put another $2000 bucks reinforcing the spindles and adding a place to place the propane tanks.

the hole is about 3 foot by 1 foot. It is right in front of the stove. I usually fish a chub off a rattle reel out of it. I loved having the house on Okoboji. It was like looking in a big fish tank.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
