SOLD-Ice house from Art Shanty Projects - $200 obo - Medicine Lake, MN

5 posts in this topic

For sale is the fabulous Map Shanty from the 2009 Art Shanty Projects on Medicine Lake. This could be a great house for ice fishing, but it could also be a backyard fort or playhouse for the kids in the summer. (Maybe even a shed? A guest-room shack?)

• Bright, colorful blue color

• Optional Map wallpaper

• Well -insulated, sturdy

• The base is 8ft x 8ft with an angled height between 8-10 feet (see photo)

• Double-paned plexiglass windows

• Construction consists of 8 lower wall panels, 4 upper 'arrow' panels, 3 roof panels and 3 floor panels. Easy to take apart and store!

• Materials: 2x4 and plywood walls with foam insulation; Plexiglass windows; corrugated plastic roofing

• Includes 2 small benches and a small loft for lounging and getting sun by the front window.

• Ready-made for easy assemble/disassemble.

Here's the catch -- *** Buyer must provide transportation and pick up from Medicine Lake in Plymouth by 5pm Saturday, Feb. 21st. This is a firm deadline to be off the lake. *** This is just about 10 miles west of downtown Minneapolis. We will pull the house to shore and arrange for 4 people to help disassemble and explain the construction. You'll need a ladder (maybe 2), drills, a few people and a truck/trailer.

$200 Or Best Offer. Medicine Lake in Plymouth, MN

Don't know if it is for sale anymore or not, but I drive past Medicine Lake every morning on the way to work and did not see it out there this morning. Only ones left was one of the Red Dice and a really tall two or three level Ice House.

Dibbs, I see no one has claimed it (posted) or stated they want it, just sniffers. Please email me btunell@msn.com.

It is later than the deadline, but can get anytime.

    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it.
