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?

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....
    •   Can anyone explain why I get ads here for dating sites with a picture of a big busted older woman   or Russian and oriental girls looking for marriage when I don't even go on those sites?
    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
