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.

    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
