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.
