Another skid house build

8 posts in this topic

I posted a few pics of my skid house on another thread, I finished this weekend and figured I would post my own thread to help with a few questions that were asked. The house is 8x10. The skids are a 2"x6"x.25" wall with .25" x 6"plate welded to the 2x6. Floor joist are .25" 2x2s 2' on center with 5/8" plywood flooring. The walls and ceilings are both 2"  foundation grade foam sheeting with the floor having 1.5". Spray foam wasn't in the budget for this one. I covered the floor and the 5" baseboard with behr deckover caulking the joint to have a shower pan style floor. The bench and drop away table are more for my kids as is the TV that hooks to the swivel mount via hitch pin. The 8k but direct vent takes a bit to get it heated but had the house to 70* after 2 hours today at 8* temps outside. I will probably use my big buddy to quickly heat while drilling the holes then let the direct vent takeover.  I also built a 7" cpu server fan onto a cigarette plug to help move that air around. Its been fun building and should be a blast on the ice. It's  I'll probably move onto a wheelhouse in a few years when my kids a bit older.

Not sure what's going on with your pictures loading but I only see the last one. But, the house looks great!

 

Well reopened it and now the rest are showing. I really wish I could get one like this that I could pull out with my sled. Nice work. :)

Shes a beauty Clark, a real beauty! 

 

I hope mine turns out half this nice.  Any idea on the weight?  Can I get a better look at that ceiling?

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
