Recommended Posts

We'll after building 4 or 5 shacks so far, I think I finally got the dimensions down I wanted and can live with moving by myself...

Heres the progression... 4.5ft x 7ft hole 48x28 fully insulated with a mr heater wall mount heater.


2x4 framed floor


7/16 ply

I missed a cpl photos somewhere but It went together really quick, the whole shack comes apart for easy storage in the off season...




Slide on roof


getting some insulation put in.


insulation in and the walls and floor put together... My natural big screen tv! better than cable!


go-pro mount to back wall


rattle wheels, still have one more to install. BNS knows why...


spear holder for transport...


Start to paint- Black enamel- roof


Painted insides...


Rattle wheel painted for the most part along with the ceiling.


Ceiling on and outside fully painted...


Wall mount heater installed...


Outside painted with vents installed...

All I have left is ski's which is in the works, carpet for the floor and a spear hole cover and this thing will be ready to hit the ice... Oh Ill have a 3ftx3ft logo sticker on the front too.... smile

Inside is 6' 3" I believe, Total hidth is 75" walls plus 2" of floor frame., Walls go together with 3 1/2" screws. Sheeting is 1/4 luan board.

Gordie I bought primer white for the bottom foot of sheeting. We did cover it last year and I thought of you when I picked it up! smile Ill have to wait after this first trip next week to get it painted, I dont have the time before hand.

Na, I used the parts for the newer shacks and the one I do have from last year is getting turned into a permanent ground blind. I made this one for around $375 all together. With only having the 2x4's to start with.
