Need siding help for fish house! Don't know what to do.

8 posts in this topic

I am having trouble making a decision on what kind of siding to look into for my perm. Vinyl vs. aluminum vs. steel vs. whatever else I don't know what to do! I want durability, lighter weight, and reasonable pricing. What do you guys suggest doing and where to look?

Be careful if you decide to use vinyl. Some vinyl will crack and break when it gets good and cold outside.

I have horizontal run pole barn tin on mine. Works well.

Go with pole barn or "roofing tin" you can purchase at most home improvement stores or lumber yards. One thing we do on the skid houses is run 16-24 inches of pressure treated wood or flat tin on the bottom to help prevent wicking of moisture and making it easy to break out of the snow.

I hope you don't need all that horse power to move the house around. whistle But then it is RED.

No we just use the three point and those little wheels to bring them across land for summer storage. On skids we move them around with pick-ups pretty easy.

As for the greeen we need our tractors to stay above ground as much as possible. Green ones are just exspensive soil submarines. wink

AND . . . Jonny knows a thing or two about taking tractors below ground level.

Since he has dubbed Buddy the submarine commander, I propose the we bestow upon him the title of something along the lines of a Subterranean Commander (or maybe The Mole).

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
