Ice House Build

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.

What size T&G are you using? The cabinets look like 3/4, but it may just look that way due to the door framing.

The T & G is all 3/4".  If I was going to do the whole house T & G then I would have use the 5/16" stuff.  Also I found much better boards using the 3/4" stuff and the cost wasn't that much more.

This weekend was spent getting the cabinets finished up and a couple coats of polyurethane on all the wood.  Very slow going but it needs to be done to protect all the wood.

All the FRP panelling is done.  It came out very nice.  Now all i need to do is finish the bunk and table and trim it out.  Im going to wait until late summer/fall before i install the carpet so that way it goes into next ice season fresh and new.

looks great what kind of a heater are you putting in it

I'm just going to use a vent free wall mount heater.  Maybe in the future I will put in a nice forced air one but the budget doesn't allow for it right now.

vent free

Be careful, these are legal for stores to sell but very dangerous to use.  They are non-compliant with building codes.

O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.

A CO detector is a good thing to have some redundancy built in.....put in two of them and make them different brands and types...also, maybe one is battery operated and one hardwired, etc, etc

Just a little update.  Not much has gotten done in the last week or so.  I have been really sick, the kid has been sick, and I'm trying to get my boat ready for open water.  Also I'm redoing a large part of my lawn so I have been trying to get that ready for sod.  To much to do and not enough time for everything.  I did receive my foam for my mattresses so I will start sewing up the covers for those probably this weekend.  Other then that I have a little bit of trim work left to finish up and put the clear coat on that will be finished up.  I almost forgot but I was able to cut the holes out and installed the catch covers.  I think I will need 1 more hole. When I have a minute I'll snap a shot to add to the pictures.

Kudos to you for your progress with everything else going on and needing attention!  Every year I have updates and upgrades planned for my campershack, and I will cross 3-4 of my items off my list in a day or 2 and then not be able to do anything for 3 weeks and I don't have near the other commitments that you do.  I guess we all love to do these projects AND read about these projects because it is so satisfying when something you have built or renovated serves the purpose you had envisioned even for just a day or a weekend.  Keep up the updates as I love to see project progress and new ideas.

skrimp somewhere else but get a vented heater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sleeping in it once is too many times and risky, not to mention the moisture dripping from the ceiling and down the walls, the windows you'll never see out of without a squeegee,  the mold that will form next summer, the sore throats, the headaches and most of all-the funeral expense. Even if you have to get a less expensive heater with a stovepipe it's better and safer. You can run the pipe out the side walls and attractively patch it later. It only takes a couple hours to start feeling the effects of CO2. Be Safe.

Spot on @Hawg, an additional $200 is a small price to pay to keep one's wife & <2 year old child safe. Good Ventless heaters run $150 - $200. The Suburban vented 19,000 BTU runs $389. Last fall I found mine for $312, free shipping just took a bit of searching. My DIY 6.5 x 12 + V front wheel house has 3" batt insulation floor, walls and ceiling. At -17 deg my 19k Sunurban runs 5 cycles per hour 4 min per cycle inside temp at 70 deg. Clear windows, no headaches, no dripping water and no frozen shut door after it sets over night without heat. Fully automatic, flip a switch, set thermostat heat on.

Yeah I always feel like I need to be doing something.  Its a good thing and bad thing sometimes.  It keeps me busy but sometimes way to busy.

That's the cheapest price I have seen.  Believe me I have been looking but the cheapest vented heaters I have seen are $500+.  My budget is about maxed out for the time being but I suppose I have all summer to look around.  Why are these heaters so expensive?  I only paid $350 for my 50000 btu vented garage heater.  These are so much smaller.

Supply & Demand - lot more garages than RV`s & ice Houses along with cagey marketing convincing buyers it's actually worth the sell price. Reason many pay $1000 for a plastic tub, a couple aluminum poles, multi layered fabric & 2 chairs and called a flip. You can get 100 minimum order ice augers made to your specs., shipped to your business for $33 each tax free than sell them for $200. Most of the stuff we buy for outdoors sports fall into this arena.

    • 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.
