2010 Fish House Build

Recommended Posts

Do you use regular 3/4" thick t&g paneling or something

Thinner , lighter ? It sure does look nice but must get

Pretty heavy . I also see your thinking about a yetti .

Do you think the aluminum trailer will hold up ?

It is 5/16"...very lightweight.

No go on the Yetti. After having a hydraulic frame, I can't imagine going to a crank. The aluminum frame should be just fine. Voyager/Yetti knows what they are doing.

Thanks for posting this, am building a house right now myself and this is a great reference!! Am just about finished with the exterior and am now starting the electric. The electric is much more confusing than I thought. I purchased a "power center" from fish house supply and lets just say it doesn't have very good instructions. Thinking of switching to a system like you said and just have a battery charger plugged in.

If you have questions on the electrical power converter maybe I can help. The instructions or lack of are confusing.

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
