      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Performance Engineering in Glencoe, MN builds a nice shell at a pretty reasonable price.

If you want top end though, check out E&T Enterpises, makers of the Shack Rack fish house frame. Best on the market IMO. I am having them build me a 8'x14' "shell". This includes the frame, all steel studs, smooth alumiminum siding, and a rubber roof. It's gonna cost right aroung $5000, and I figure another $1500-$2000 to finish the inside myself.

Fishhousesupply.com has nice frames at a good price, however you would need to frame everything yourself which in my opinion is a lot more fun. But do be prepaired to spend some money. around 5-6 thousand on the short side of things.

Milaca unclaimed freight had one for sale a few weeks ago. If they don't, it probably wouldn't take more than a week to get one, thats how long they said it would take to custom order one.

What ever you do don't have one built with aluminum studs! Every fastner will sweat and freeze that you put in to those aluminum studs!

Buddy of mine had a shack rack, great house but every screw he added in it to hang shelves, rattle reels, tables and everything else frosted up and the wood trim and paneling rotting out!

Fish House Supply and Performance Engineering would be where I would start looking.
