Paneling in fish house

5 posts in this topic

Our paneling keeps warping up. If we put poly between the studs and paneling will this keep it from warping? Or is this a problem from constant hot/cold/hot/cold enviroment? We used that paneling from menards that's looks like real cedar but it's actually a picture printed on the sheet. (we've had arguments with people who swear it's real wood) It's really not cheap paneling so we're getting sick of fixing it every year.

We had that problem in my Dad aluminum custom house. It has a aluminum frame and after like a year it was warped terrible so we contact where the house was built and they said they used a plastic covered paneling looks like wood but it has a plastic look to it. It is all attached using plastic rivits. Then between the paneling and studs they put a vapor barrier ours looked like a piece of about 1/4" foam faced with a piece of cardboard. Ever since we did this never have had problems with it warping. The house still will sweat and condense but no more warped paneling every year. Go under the icefishing forum understanding posting pictures link and look at the picture I took of Marine_Man behind him is the paneling that is in ours house. I would think that you can find something like this at Menards.

Make sure you use plywood backed paneling! At home depot it tells you if it is suitable for mobile homes right on the back! Thats what you need! I bought mine at Menards last year and made sure that it had real wood backing and works great! Another thing you can use is called Luan Plywood also available at menards, it is 1/4" thick but very light! Works well also! Hope this helps!

Forget the paneling... Go with pine car siding

I used 1/8" mahogany paneling in mine but I turned it backwards so the ruff side was to the interior of the house then I painted it white so the inside of the house is very bright even with low lighting. I did put a vapor barrier between the paneling and studs, I've had no problem with it warping and it has been in use for 15 years.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
