Free 8 x 14 Ice house

6 posts in this topic

FREE 8x14 ice house located on Millelacs, you haul.

It's well built and has been serving as a cabin on shore but needs a new home now. It sleeps 4 w/ 2 sets of bunks, 4 windows, attic storage space and is well insulated. The wooden skids underneath rotted so this house hasn't seen ice for the last 5 years, but new skids could be easily made.

With a little TLC I think this house has many more years ice fishing in it and the price is right so if you have a trailer and a place to store it give me a shout.

I am interested in the house. How heavy is it? Would it fit on a 2 place snowmobile trailer?

Hi all-I'll try to answer your questions. The house is located on our lot at the end of mazominee point on cove bay, it belongs to a freind of mine and hasn't been getting used so I'm posting this for him. It's very heavy built like a small house w/ a shingled roof and regular stud wall construction. Not sure of the weight but prolly 2-3,000 lbs? It's tucked back in the woods in soft soil so you'd probably need a 4x4 and a heavy duty trailer capable of hauling several thousand pounds like a car or heavy equipment trailer. It's on cement blocks so you can get under it but it'll definetly take a few guys to load and prolly a come along, hi-lift jack and some pry bars. I live in Grand Marais so it would be a long ride down there so serious inquiries only. Drop me an email at the addy listed above and I can try to arrange something.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
