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.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
    • All of you who wasted your votes can thank us later.  In four years you'll have another chance to earn your right to be critical of the POTUS.
