Ice House Build

Recommended Posts

I picked up all the insulation last night.  I will be using the Pink expanded foam and wedging it between the studs.   Once I get some installed I'll get a few updated pics.

Did you house wrap it? If you didn’t make sure to tape your joints. A lot of guys have had good luck cutting the foam on a table saw if your stud spacing is true. Are you finishing the inside? If so, make sure to take measurements and pictures of where your wires run. Then when you hang something later on you don’t need to worry about hitting the wires

You said that you didn't insulate the floor.  I wonder if you could glue some of the pink foam under it to help out save cold foot?

Yeah I was thinking about that.  I think I will just wait and use it next winter to see if I want to insulate the floor.  I figured I could always crawl under it and shove some foam between the cross members.

Insulation is all installed now.  Took longer then I though it would.  After doing it I'm going to make sure I budget in spray foam for any future houses I build.  I will pick up some of the T & G and start working on that this weekend.  I'm going to do something a little different then most houses.  I'm only putting the T & G 3 ft up the walls and the ceiling will be covered also.  Other then that I'm going to use FRP to keep it nice and bright inside.  Its the cheapest way I have found to finish off the inside and still have a nice look when its finished.  The plan is to have it finished by memorial day weekend because we are planning on using it as a camper that weekend.

Using the FRP half way will keep some weight down as well.

Yeah That's kind of another reason why I'm going to use it.  Now that I'm looking at it I probably should have put a window in the back as well but oh well.  Now I know for any future builds haha.

Yes windows around are good, to watch tip ups and for Wardens!  😆

On a future light weight build you could include a power winch lift for another $175. A bit of wiring but really sweet to have in -15 temp & 30 mph snowy wind.

I was actually going to do that but then I got to thinking "do I really need them on a 12ft house?"  Probably not and I'm only 24 so a little cranking wont hurt me.  I think if I would have built a 16ft house I would have use electric winches.

Haha!  Yeah I really don't fish tip ups much probably because they never seem to work for me so I usually use rattle reals inside.  And another reason is it always seems like the only time I have to fish is when its -10 out.  One of the reasons I'm building a wheel house haha.

I started the cabinets tonight in this wicked blizzard. I didn't think the house would see any winter use until next winter but here we are getting dumped on.  Haha

The opening for the cabinets are cut and the bottom bunk/table seats are all boxed in.  I just need to put the hinge on those are done.  I still need to put the center cap on the ceiling and put the clear coat on all the wood.

May be too late but nailer plates where you ran wires through studs are cheap insurance. Ice Nuts are easy, cheap, and work great for winches. Plus you have cranks for backup. Electrics can be a pain.

Yeah the Ice nuts are on the list of goodies left to get.  Hole covers and table hardware is all order.

    • I'm OK with the replay if it's used for a challenge.  The automatic review is pretty lame though.   And I agree with Dave about the playcall.  If he would have thrown to an open receiver nobody would have said it was an awful call.  Cousins effed that up.
    • I have an terrova with Ipilot, (not link),   I lay the trolling motor in the bottom of the boat which is stored in covered storage.  It has been fine for several years.   Gets darn cold up around Cook.   No problem.  On the other hand I bring my depth finders and transducer home and store above freezing due to bad experiences with Lowrance transducers in previous years and ambiguity in documents about my elite 7s I have two  
    • ^^^^^^^^   1. zimmerman and stefanski should be fired, cousins benched. (or released)   2. the review by the "experts" in NY has destroyed any legitimacy this sport may have had.   Should note cousins contract. speilman got played. (he should go too)    
    • Ive never really been a fan of replay.  I think we've all seen cases where the refs still screwed it up after replay so we're trading one bad call for another.  Its interesting to hear the rules guy they have commenting on the broadcasts.  They always give their opinions on how they see the play and whether it should be overturned or not.  Yesterday there were 2 reviews that they disagreed with how the officials called the play after review which shows how its all still subjective.    You can look at every single play during a game and probably find something to call on both teams if you look hard enough which I think is a case of what happened during Diggs touchdown that was called back.  Cook either ran into the defender or intentionally tried to block him.  I'm not sure its 100% clear either way and isn't the benchmark supposed to be "clear and indisputable"?  Unfortunately now that replay is a thing pandora is out of its box and I don't think it can ever be put back in.  
    • 1. I think the play call was fine, Cousins just F'ed it up. Play action on first down after you have been running up and down the field on a team is pretty standard but throwing into triple coverage on a play like that is not.   2. Anyone who has ever advocated for instant replay review in sports is now getting what they deserve in my opinion. I could have told you that there would be a natural progression that would lead to this point and beyond. I say get rid of replay review in it's entirety and live and die by what referees call on the field. I was told at the beginning stages of replay that the reason was "so we get the calls right". If that is really the reason, you should be happy they got it right. 
    • Only 2 comments on the game.    1. What a lousy throw by Cousins in the endzone and what a lousy play call.  They were running the ball right down the Packers throats, why would you not keep running it.  2. I think I hate the new PI replay.  To take a touchdown off the board because they noticed someone maybe sorta blocking when they reviewed the scoring play is kind of a joke.  The PI wasn't called on the field and no one challenged it.  When you're reviewing the scoring play it seems like you should only be reviewing if the player got the ball across the line without losing control.  Pretty soon they'll be reviewing every lineman to make sure they weren't holding on the play as well and that none of them moved a thousandth of a second before the snap.  If that happens I hope they also review every defensive player to make sure they didn't move early, hold, or engage a receiver after 5 yards.  It really feels like we've gone too far with this replay thing and they're using it as a answer to everything when sometime you're just exchanging one bad call for another.    I think thats all I've got besides the fact that I haven't been real impressed with the NFC north so far.  The Packers and Vikings look average to decent but hardly superbowl contenders.  The Bears squeaked out a win but they are looking like they don't have much to work with at QB.  And the Lions as usual aren't worth talking about.  
    • The roof is finally on and I got some of the wiring started.  The tin came in over the weekend so I was able to pick that up last night.  I will start to put that up this week if the weather permits.
    • This is where:   Big Dave2 HSO Legacy Member Don't know much about football, huh?   😁   Doesn't matter if we have a good QB. We're a running team! 🙄
    • I hope they draft a good QB next year. That was a shiatty play call on first and goal to begin with. Pack aren't that impressive, neither are the Vikes.
