  1. I have a few cardinals and blue jays, that’s about it. Oops, nuthatches too.
  2. All the resorts around there work their butts off moving houses around, Border View included.
  3. Border View is very clean, great people, and the restaurant and bar are hard to beat. A less expensive route, but not right on the lake is Lakeroads Motel. They have clean rooms, nice people, comfortable beds and good showers. It's our go to place besides Border View.
  4. It's hinged but yes, friction holds it upright. I thought at first I might have to put pins in it to hold the bottom back but it doesn't move. It stays whether you want it in straight back or full slouch position. It really does work great, I have never sat in a comfortable booth type thing in a fish house so I didn't go that way. I wish I would have gone to one step softer foam but it's still just fine. I took the leftover foam and put it on the ends as you can see in the picture and cut holes for cans. That has to be the ultimate can cooler. The best thing is how much storage you get under
  5. Yes Dave, sorry I didn't check sooner. Still have questions?
  6. I did exactly the same thing, those pictures are invaluable. Mine starts with the bare trailer the day I brought it home. Man, that was a lot of work hours ago. What needs to be done to get people back on HSO?
  7. Those wiring notes are invaluable. I never put in a screw or nail without checking them. Seating with those table/ booth things has to be the most uncomfortable things on earth. Never quite big enough to sit at and a pain to get in and out of. I did a couch type thing and have a collapsible table I keep in the bathroom for playing cards and stuff. You can store a TON of stuff under it too.
  8. Me too, woodpeckers, little brown somethings, and blue jays. I have ton of squirrels, some of them look big enough to feed a family of 4.
  9. Good job, it looks great. Just curious, did you caulk around your windows? I was told there was no need by the siding guys but I have to believe the water has to go somewhere as it runs down the sides.?.?
  10. Wish the God dang blue jays migrated, they use their beaks to sweep seeds out of the seed feeder, i think the squirrels are paying them (or Antifa ).
  11. 7 more inches of snow expected here today, the birds are struggling to find ground seeds. Anybody getting any unusual birds migrating thru? I have a ton of Purple Finches, Juncos and some sparrows I don't recognize but they must be booking tickets south soon to I would think.? Hope we get a little decent weather before winter but the forecast is low 30's for the next week. I've been blowing a path for spreading seeds the last 2 days for the ground feeders but hoping this melts as fast as the Tuesday snow did so that's not needed. It's way toooooo early.
  12. Oops, sorry I didn't look closer at your pictures. Holes are ok as I didn't see how you insulated the floor. I prefer foam but insulation of any kind is a must. I would reconsider your door location and large storage (bathroom?) area in the front. That's a lot of floor space to take out of a house your size. Site is screwed up and won't let me modify my last post. Look up Lip Ripper Guy's posts, you'll get 100's of good ideas. That hole in my bathroom/storage wall is where I put a tv, it takes up zero space from inside house.
  13. Got brakes? If not, get em. Your holes look a little close to the wall by your wheel boxes, you might have to trim the sides of your hole covers. I did the same thing, not a big deal. Why all the room up front with o hole? That’s a great spot to slit up between a door & hole And a bathroom. Be sure the door hinges toward the front. Good start.
  14. It’s been about 4-5 years since I’ve been in my old open stand. I’m a heat and thermopane window guy now. Talking to my partners in camp we had to stop and think when we saw them last, I know we had quite a few back in the open stand time. You’re right about being very scarce around here now they agree.
