it ways a ton. Kind of hoping to lighten it up. I was going back and fourth with 6x8 and 8x8 because of the weight. How heavy would you say it is.

I have a 6X8 about 20yrs old. I am pretty sure when I bought it they told me it was around 100lbs. By the way the house is almost in as good as shape as the day I bought it, Canvas Craft puts out a very high quality product.

Thanks guys cant weight to pick it up. I checked the web site and it says the 8x8 is 145 pounds to me its worth wrestling for beingcomfortable and having warm feet. I dont move around much.

All ready have some good ideas to move it around thanks to the ideas of jim43 and jimalm. Time to get the welder going and fire up the stove in the garage.

I have an old 6x8 also. Been out in it at 20 below with some awful winds. A great house. Just getting too heavy as I get older. I made a cradle for mine and put some old water skis under it. I can leave some of the covers off the holes when it's folded up and put 5 gal buckets in them when I'm pulling it. Still looks like new.

Overnighters are in the picture. I bought the kit and assembled it myself tonight in the basement. Bp was right it ways a ton I wonder if I should have used cdx plywood instead of treated could have saved a third of weight. It was warmer in the ice house than the basement room. Now I got to figure how I'm going to get out of the basement, didnt think that one through to well. blushlaugh

    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation. 
    • Some times it's just nice getting out of town and when your with the right people a wet weekend can still be fun. This weekend should be better!
    • Cool story! 
    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that casement windows.are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
