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.

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.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
