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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
