According to Fish House Supply, they're ideal for ice houses 14 to 20 feet. I'd say yeah, it would work.

Hawk I bought your neighbor Mels big pig of a house. They bought a different one and me and a couple guys had the great idea of redoing this one. Well its coming alone but didnt expect this much work. It was pretty much in need of a total renovation. It will be nice when its done. I haven't heard of anybody having this heater and was wondering if it would work. You can buy them for under $200 so thought what the hey.

I saw his new house and didn't even think about sell the old. The ventless heaters will put alot of humidity in the air, which causes alot of problems in a house even if a window is left open. I know alot of people use them. I think not having a fresh air draw caused alot of the problems in that house anyway, That and not putting a wood on the metal tubing.

We went and put wood on the metal tubing and then put up a vapor barrier. We are now puting some pretty heavy paneling in now. We also removed every screw in the sheet metal and replaced with the rubber washer selve tapping screws a size bigger. Then we caulked every seam on the house. I am pretty confident it wont leak but i also dont want to a heater that is gonna make vapor moisture. This may not be the ticket then. Prolly go with a direct vent wall mount.

Also, if you're sleeping in it, vented is so much safer. You don't want to wake up dead.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
