I would have to find a new photo host besides Photobucket, and I don't really want to deal with finding a new host and re-doing all the links.  

ahh dang okay sounds good, building one myself right now and had been looking at yours way earlier when you where building it, your house turned out great again btw.

also would you do anything different with the infloor heat or were you happy with how it worked and held up last season?

Sorry, I'll try to get it figured out, but I won't have any time for the next month with hunting season and work.  

In floor heat worked perfectly, but we do have an updated design with a couple tweaks to it.

Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.

Lip_Ripper, did you do anything special with the aluminum siding around the nailing flange of the windows? just wondering if I were to use wood studs and run the aluminum siding up to the edges of the actual window would the thickness of the nailing flange cause the aluminum to bubble or anything? I would think the walls would need to be very straight and plumb so there are no ripples. Maybe I'm splitting hairs here but I'm just curious. Solid ice house btw!

We tape the studs around the window opening, and then get the window in place, and clamp it down for a day or so.  Then the siding gets cut up to the actual window, or maybe just 1/8" short.  Then the diamond plate trim over the top.  Once everything is in place, you'd have a really hard time seeing the slight outward bow caused by the tape and nailing flange.  

 

With wood studs, you may want to look at a stainless fastener through the diamond plate, siding, and flange.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
