    Fish House Build

    I tried burbot (pout) for the first time last weekend and it was delicious! Cubed the pieces and boiled in 7up, then dipped in butter. Needless to say I’ll be keeping them from now on! Brought my best buddy out for the first time the last couple days, I think he enjoyed it as much as I did

    Never weighed it, figured around 3K but not sure. Been out 5 days in the house already, first weekend in it the outside temp was -30 for a low and -15 to -20 for highs and it stayed at 70+ without a problem! Watching football/tv while fishing has been awesome! I pulled up the first fish in the house, sauger Definitely a keeper, and a decent walleye too Slimball burbot and the biggest tullibee I’ve ever seen. I’m sure they get plenty bigger but that thing was fun to catch. I didn’t think I’d personally use the rattle reels much, if at all, but gotta say I’m really glad I put them in. Can’t wait to get back out this weekend, tight lines!

    For how easy the rubber roof was to install I’ll stick with that every time. There’s termination bars that I used all the way around it and of course the adhesive as well, I want to say I used the latex one but not 100%.

    added two folding legs to the bunk that take the majority of the weight now. Also got the satellite hooked up! Hoping this Saturday will be the first trip for it out on the lake. Really excited other than a forecast low of -25 to -30 below and highs around -10 to -15, should be a good test for the furnace and insulation anyways. I tested it out last night to see how long it’d take to heat up from cold (right around 0 degrees outside) to 70, it was just over 30 min but I turned the burners on to speed it up. The house is pretty much done, just have a couple little things left. I’ll try remember to post some pics of how the first trip goes

    Twin bunks, are you talking about the rubber roof or what do you mean?

    The one I got was the only one that Wally mart had that fit the tv that size and swivel, but it was pretty spendy, I think $75 or 80. It was very simple to hang the tv though.

    Leech, one step ahead of you. Made sure to get a TV mount that swivels away, it can move about a foot and a half to the sides and actually can turn it all the way so the screen isn’t facing the back. I know without a doubt that TV would be broken by the end of the year if I didn’t get that mount! Got a good portion of what’s left done today, just a few minor things left and it’s ready for the maiden voyage!

    Berke, yes it is paneling and available at the save big money store. They have a bunch of different options. Getting close to be doing, a bunch of trim work left mainly. Here’s a couple pics.

    Cooperman, i did use adhesive but don’t think I got it warm enough to properly set up. It help in some areas but some not at all. I’ll probably just put in a few staples in areas where it’s not held down and on the seams to be sure.

    Yes to hide it and it’s also surrounded by fire resistant materials now. I got the suburban NT-20SEQ.

    Did a little trim work today. Also made the box for the furnace and got the exterior part done, just isn’t hooked up yet.

    I did buy the mounting brackets for putting it on the roof and those are mounted on permanently. It’s just 3 nuts to take off to remove it from the brackets so it’ll be easy to take off. Still not positive if I’ll leave it on when I leave the house on the lake or remove it every time, mainly worried about someone stealing it. Although a friend of mine leaves his on permanently and hasn’t had a problem yet so I suppose we’ll see.

    The stereo I’m putting in is just Bluetooth and radio. Decided to put in under the dinette, easy to wire as the batteries will be back there. Looking back now I probably would have left that out and got a nice portable speaker. Oh well it’ll be nice to have in the end. I really liked how the counters over the wheels turned out. Still have another coat and then a clear coat. Doing the V counter also like this, window and door casings will be the same stain as well. Also got the satellite dish mounted today, the dish tailgator. Starting to count the steps to when it’s done which is an awesome feeling!

    Picking away at it a little each day. 120V system is done and works, 12v system is mostly done but have to install the outlets and the stereo/speakers, then go get the batteries, probably two AGMs. Thinking of moving the speakers to the V below the counter so I don’t have to build boxes for them on the ceiling and I didn’t wire them how I should have, so now trying to decide if I want to cover the ceiling holes where the speaker wires are dangling or put a small light in each of the 4. Seems a bit excessive so might just cover them. Countertops will be simple, just 1x’s stained and finish nailed on. Same with the table for the dinette. Still have to install the furnace as well. Then the bunks and the small finishing touches will be last. Hoping by the end of the coming weekend it is competely ready for the lake!
