How much does this ice house weigh? Pic included

13 posts in this topic

I think it's 8x16, 2x4 constuction, paneling, couple bunks and a cabinet inside.

I know there are a lot of other variables that make it hard to give an exact estimate but I'm just looking for a ball park figure.

I'm thinking maybe 2,000 lbs, could be 3,000??

Thanks guys.

"Ouch"? you thinking of carrying that like a portable? A house like that will be on Mille Lacs before they let you drive on.

4000 lbs on a fish house with skids spreads out the weight alot better than and 4000 lbs car on 4 tires

Just a suggestion--I have a gravel plant nearby. You go over and weigh your truck on their scales without the house. You go back with the house and weigh again. Subtract the two numbers. I have done this when moving boxes of personal goods that was to be reimbursed by the pound. They probably won't even charge you--call and ask!

Ouch, that one is a swamper.

Better have good ice and don't leave it out to long in the spring...guessing wherever that one sits will be the low spot.

Does anyone have a clue what a half ton pickup weighs? Mine is 6500 lbs just for a reference number compared to a 4000 lb house which isnt light but not extremely heavy either.
