Interior of Permanent shack - HELP needed

11 posts in this topic

We are rookies at this permanent shack stuff but have the crank down frame and exterior purchased, we just need to finish off the interior. Any words of wisdom would be helpful. Especially what type of heater, cook top/stove, bunks, lights,... pretty much everything. Thanks in advance for your help!!

I guess it depeneds on what size your shack is, and what you want out of it. If your looking for bunks and everything, look at the web sites that manufacture houses and get some ideas. Things to consider, are you going to be spending a lot of nights in the house, or just one here and there. How many people are going to be fishing in it normally. If your going to be spending a lot of nights, a direct vent heater is a must, like an empire. A good thing to do is do a scale drawing to lay the house out with holes, bunks, stove etc. Do you have a generator, or just 12v? So many things to think about.

DON'T use paneling for your interior walls! It almost always shows some warpage after time. I'm going with knotty pine for next year. If you're looking for a 4 burner cooktop/oven, I have one for sale.

One thing I did with my Perm. was made a a table/booth style seat. Table folds down to also make for a bunk, and under the seats is storage for Kitchen stuff (Plates and what not) under one bench and Battery storage and charger storage under the other. I hard wired so I can just plugged a extension cord to the back, to charge the batteries by generator or House power.

If you need some pic's for ideas. email me at robinson@lakedalelink.net and I send you some pics of the bunk/table thing. Much like a camper.

And don’t forget the CO detector. I hate to hear every year of people losing their lives because of CO poisoning.
