Fish House Build #2

Recommended Posts

After building my first wheel house back in the spring my uncle liked it so much that now he wants me to build him one.  It will basically be the same build as my first one but with some interior changes.  6.5 x 12 drop down wheel house.  I'm excited that I get to build another one and look forward to the next couple months.

Sell him your old one and keep the new one with all the improvements you wanted to make on the first one!  😄

I've thought about it but he doesn't want the table and bunk in his.

I got the frame home the other day from the shop and it pulled straight.  Its nice to know I did something right building it haha.  I got a little grinding to clean up the corners and nock down some sharp edges and then I can start prepping it for paint.  I always hate doing prep work but know its the only way the paint will last.  There is a ton of oil on this steel I got so I have some work ahead of me to clean it up.

So, your Uncle.  Is he close enough to come over and help grind?  🤨

Or is he paying well enough to just sit back and wait for the finished product!! 🤑🤑

He's about 2 hrs from me but yeah I'm getting paid pretty good for building it.  I really don't have much to grind.  I'm Basically just cleaning up the 4 corners to give it a seamless look and nocking done the sharp edges like on the fender mounts and taking a few burrs off.  Any open tubes will get tube caps on them so I don't have to worry about them much.

How much do these BunchOfish houses cost?  They look nice and pretty well made.  May be I'll put in an order for one too!  😃

PM sent.  If I had the time and shop space to build them, I'd love to do it as a full time job. I'm shooting to have his done by thanksgiving.  It might be tight with bow season coming up.

After a busy weekend of redoing my deck and fixing my truck I was able to start painting the frame Sunday night.  I this is the worst part to the whole build IMO.  The plan is to put down 2 coats of primer and 2-3 coats of paint over that.  Hopefully I will have it done by this weekend so I can insulate the floor and lay down some wood.  After that things will move along pretty quick.  I'm trying to get a large amount of work done before mid September because one bow season hits I will most likely sitting in the woods every weekend.

I managed to get the fenders and swing arm/axles primed last night while it was dumping rain.  Question for everyone,  I'm starting to look for an ice castle door.  Does anyone know where I might find one?  The one I used for my first build I found used.

Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.

    • I did ask about dish soap and he said because there are  no toxicity studies that have been done with soap mixed with their product he can't legally comment on it. He did make it clear in his own way it wasn't needed. Haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet.
    • Interesting.  I was searching for instructions and got conflicting advice.   The no oil thing is good to know...I've got this creeping charlie issue in my lawn.   2,4-D and triminic doesn't seem to do much.    Gonna give this stuff a try.  What did they say about a little soap in the tank?
    • If it is garter snakes, pick them up with your hand and put in a bag.   Release them a mile or so away.  
    • One of my absolute fears, I'd sell the house!
    • Ask and ye shall receive. Now I have so many orioles, lots of young ones, I'm going thru almost a jar of jelly every 2 days! I wouldn't think they would be migrating thru going south yet would they? The catbirds like it too and I have about 1/2 dozen of those. They are pretty neat birds. I also have about a dozen of some kind of sparrow hang around that I can't identify. I can't take good enough pictures to post or I would. They are big birds and the closest I can come is a white crowned but they are not white on top of their heads, that's brown but have black and white stripes over the eyes like white crowned. Also their chests are mottled yellowish brown and darker brown. No yellow patch or white throat like a white throated. Broken white stripes on the wings and lower back. Bill is dark gray on top and light translucent whitish (not really pink?) and they actually look a lot like a female Grossbeak but I know they aren't. Seems one of the sexes are a little browner than white on the head stripes.   They are brown around the eyes but do have a thin white area below that to neck but the white does not go under the bill/throat. I'm searching websites but still can't find them.
    • Delcecchi, Just got off the phone with Brushtox customer service. For tank/spot treating lawn use 3/4 oz per gallon. No surfactants (Diesel will kill all grasses). Should not harm northern grass if directions are followed. Be sure of zero rain for 24 hours. (The mix for brush killing is 4-6 oz/gal and does require surfactant.) Weed will probably take a week to show results. BE Sure to wear long sleeves, long pants, rubber/latex gloves, shoes and socks, and eye protection, it's very irritating to eyes. Apply with coarse spray.  The guy had never heard of this Celandine Majus (Sp)?  Phone number is 800 264 5281 if needed and they are very helpful.  I haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet but plan to later today.  Southern Ag.(crossbow) phone is 941 722 3285 
    • Our annual ice fishing kickoff event is a little over a month away!  We just want to make sure everyone gets it on their calendars!   This year's date is Saturday, September 28.  Held at our building in Blaine, MN.   We'll have seminars from Ice Team and Ice Force Pros, along with vendors showcasing all of the new products for the upcoming ice fishing season!   Oh, and AWESOME deals on everything you need to have a successful season!   We'll post more details as we get closer, but for now please mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28 and we'll see you there!!   Thanks for all of the support!!
    • https://raganandmassey.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Brushtox_1gal.pdf   Looks like a couple quarts per 100 gallons, with some diesel mixed in.   That would be like maybe an ounce or a little less per gallon.   Sounds like heavy duty stuff.   
    • Warning about 80 is just for the day you spray right? It is getting cooler now so I should be ok. Del, I wonder if that Brushtox has mixing instructions for brush killing. That would be pretty strong and I have been warned about following the instructions exactly. Thank you. I will check into it today.
