Solar Powered Fish House Build

Recommended Posts

2021 update, solar panels still going strong.  Only thing I had to do was replace battery bank last year with new gel cells.   I have had zero regrets on solar.  The house is always ready to go when I get out. 

One great enhancement that I added was a wifi repeater with an external antenna.  This lets me grab internet from the cabin and repeat it inside my fish house.  With that I added a wifi thermostat so I can turn my heat on remotely  and I put a ring doorbell cam on my door so I can keep an eye on things outside.  Added benefit of good wifi is that I can work “ remote” from the ice fishing house.

Here are the original pictures.  Let me know if you have any questions.

2016 update.  Solar panels still work like they did out of the box..  Replaced one of the original unclaimed freight batteries (I suspect it was a few years old when I purchased it).  The only upgrade

Thanks, I am a homebrewer as well and going to add a nitro tap serving stout on the wall and put the keg in the closet at some point..

Officially jealous. My dream WFH situation would include a rattle reel to going off while I am on a conference call just to see the responses I would get on the phone.
