'17 Yetti Build

Recommended Posts

So I haven't posted in awhile but thought I would update on the progress.  Wasn't too much to show up until now.  Cedar tongue and groove is finally finished and the bathroom wall is completed.  I used the Minwax matte finish water based poly 2 coats sanded in between before it was installed.  That process took forever, in between fall fieldwork and only being able to work on it weekends.  Now it's on to the small cupboard for the oven & the aluminum tube frames for the Yetti pleather couches.  Each wheel well will have a hinged countertop and storage below.  All the trim is left to do.  I'm not sure what to do with the outside corners of the wheel well.  I know you can get pine 90 degree molding but I'm not sure I want pine. 


This is the second Yetti I've finished, learned more on this one than the last one.  Its been going fairly well some setbacks like trying to shorten my thumb on the tablesaw... I won't show you the pics of that.  LOL


Anyways here are the pics.  Typical IPhone and wrong orientation pictures,


The empty shell, 8x16 in Matte black



Rubber flooring sample




Bathroom wall in the v front, bathroom door will be barn door style slider hanging on the inside of the wall.  Need to build a box around the brake controller after the flooring is installed.




Drivers side wheel well, built in storage on top, 30K btu furnace will be installed in front of the wheel well under the front couch with two ducts blowing back, one duct blowing towards the door and one to the v front.




Passenger side wheel well storage will house the stereo, switches and 12V fuse panel.  Battery, sub/amp and converter will all be installed under the rear couch.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
