Hang in there for the photo's. I sent them to Paul late this morning and I would assume that he probably won't post till this evening after work?

It is a 6.5 x 14 Roadking frame. Thanks. It was a lot of fun building. I am getting pretty anxious for some serious ice. LOL

Tightlines, you've got a heck of a fish house there. I'll be in Fargo this Thursday, I may give you that call and come take a peek. One problem, my email program went to ***t so I lost all my info in it along with your number. Would you mind emailing it to me again. prod2109@arvig.net.

Thanks,
Fisherdog

Are there four holes, or six holes? And I assume that those are hole lights, on the sides, correct? What are the black boxes below the cabinets by the tv?

WOW Tight! Excellent job! A few questions What is the final weight? final cost? Where did you find the parts like doors windows?
I noticed the vinyl siding what are the corners they dont look like the typical big vinyl corners.
Roof material? wood frame? I was in one that a guy built last year not nearly as nice as this, he had a homemade operating exhaust fan over the stove he used I believe a blower from a small car for the fan he says it works great for the fish fry
Congrats on your new home and don't forget the champaigne and the ribbon cutting.

This is 100% what its all about...

I am in the remodeling and window business so I got a good deal on the windows,aluminum siding,cabinets and strong panel steel roof. It is all wood construction on top of a Roadking frame. I had it out to the weigh station and it came in at 2100 lbs. I have a little over $5000.00 invested. Probably over 150 hours including the drive time looking for that one needed hard to find screw or whatever.LOL I pick up the dinnette at a RV store for 225.00 Got the carpet at a boat dealer for 20.00 bucks. He was about to throw it out and it was a 300.00 dollar peice that they had taken a small corner off to do a repair on a boat. I did get lucky on a few found items.Got a lot of ideas from you folks. Thanks for all the tips...
BTW-- the corners are steel siding j-channel. Didn't think that the aluminum J would hold up as well as the steel.

Tightlines-
Yes! Now that's what we like to talk about around here. I like it. I like it. I like it a lot.

Now for some tough questions. After all the work you put into the house I know you have a new found respect for the so-called "pro's", but if you were to sell your house what is it worth to you? Also,now that you are about to throw your wallet out on the ice have you thought of any ways to try and safeguard it?
Those are a couple of the questions I had to answer when the thought of leaving the shack out on the lake for any extended period of time came up. I found out that we don't own our materials,...materials own us. I'm not trying to be a downer, just thought that we could start another dialog. TROY

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
