Questions for permanent house!!!!!

6 posts in this topic

Hello all, I have a question about where to get foam for a bunk bed. I just bought a permanent house and am planning on building a couple of bunks in it. Where do I get this from? ANyone have any ideas? What did the rest of you do with your bunks. Also, have any of you heard about a hookup that will run your trailer lights and also charge your bateries at the same time?

I saw neat bunks built out of canvas with a piece of pipe ran through a continuous loop similar to camp cots. the pipes were attached to the walls into slots in a 2x4. When they weren't being used, they could simply be rolled up and put away. they looked pretty comfortable although I did not try it myself.

kooba, check out any surplus store around you, we got foam for our bunks at one. They had many sizes of foam in the store, two, four,six inch and many others also. They came in large sheets and we cut them down to fit our needs.The bunks we put up were 3/4 plywood by two feet wide and six feet long, they were hinged to the wall so when not in use they folded down and were out of the way. sweet dreams.<(((((><

I've seen several types of foam while out shopping with the wifey at JoAnn fabric and Michaels stores (gotta pay the price to get to go fishing!) They had many thicknesses/densities of foam and I don't think the prices were too unreasonable-can't verify the prices though I wasn't looking too closely just making a mental note where they were for when I'm looking for it.

Check with your local Upholstery Shop. I don't know where your shack is at, but I had some cushions made for my bunks at Solona Upholstery in Malmo,Mn. 320-684-2900. They use good quality foam and sew on a removable cover that can be taken off and washed.Price depends on size, and how fancy you get with the covers. Hope this helps.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
