      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Another skid house build

Recommended Posts

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?

You can leech, just buy one.  It's only money, you can make more tomorrow.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
