Wheel house bathroom question - separate exterior door?


Recommended Posts

This is still your layout correct?

 

First off... Are you really sure that you want to go direct vent instead of fan force? Don't get me wrong, they are nice for simplicity and electrical usage - but are no comparison in comfort (and before someone chimes in, yes - I have one of each in both my house :) ). If you went w/ a 20k ducted fan forced midway under your sidebunk you could run your ducts like this...

Otherwise if you are completely set on putting in a direct vent, I would suggest moving it to the passenger side "V" and putting your door in the side just behind the "V".

Side wall vent, putting any hole the roof of a fish house is a bad gamble. Heck, they haven’t even figured out skylights in real houses yet. Wanderer is right about a vent though, it’ll pay for itself

@Hawg   I thought about mentioning the side vent option too has long as he’s building his own.  Could get the fan closer to the source!!

After seeing the 16 ft.  Y - Angler Edition layout - I'm leaning towards no exterior bathroom door and going with something more like this layout.  At least the bathroom would be the furthest away pos

Yeah I've gone back and forth and have decided I really want to try the direct vent this time. I've been playing with this SketchUp a little bit. Now I'm thinking since my tanks are on the passenger side I'll think about something like this:

My biggest concern here is the door opening towards the vent exhaust. ??

I went to the middle of the house at the point where the V starts with my stud wall and then straight back to the tip of the V. It leaves plenty of room for the bathroom and the tv then got built into the wall and doesn't stick out. This isn't the best picture and tv is not in the casing but you'll get the drift. As far as the gas line goes I have about an inch or so to the floor beneath my door so it just runs along it. The door is open,and it is straight in the real world_bad picture. The direct vent heater works as a great glove and hat warmer/dryer too. Here's a door spring idea that is quiet, no swinging spring.

I really like this layout! I’m hoping that you are doing spray foam on the walls?

Yep! I haven't gotten any quotes but planning on aluminum exterior with spray foam walls, floor ceiling.

Mnbuckhunter, yup, just a light bungee w/o hooks. I had a spring and it drove me nuts. Even when the wind catches it it stops the door softly, just be sure you get the light, not stiff, bungee. Sorry, shows how much I check PM's.

Genius of an idea that I'll be stealing!

    • If anyone checks in here and has any reports, light us up! 😄   I don’t know how many ducks are left in MN with the recent cold snap but there has to be some.  Last weekend we shot a 3 man limit in western MN.  Mostly spoonies but saw 10 different species and harvested 5 of them.   I thought I had two really nice GWT teal drakes but I’m not 100% sure I should mount one.  So early in the season and they still have some pin feathers.     Is that chair at the top of the pic?  Why, yes it is.  My buddy has a sweet set up with some old chairs I gave him.   Feet still got a little cold but it was a super easy watch over the dekes.   Tonight at home I went down to my blind for the last 20 minutes to see what might be flying.  No gun.  NO PHONE!  4 hooded mergansers flew by and 6 GWT settled in pretty much at my feet. The two drakes were really nice - probably nicer than the two in the pic.  One coot was hanging around with them.    The no phone/no pics was probably the best duck call and deke spread ever. 🙃
    • I have fished this stretch for what seems forever. Two hundred yards downstream I caught my first trout at age five. I am certain that I was given one of my lessons on stream by my father on this stretch. He typically gave a "what is that" speech at least once during an outing. The lessons varied from what kind of tree or wildflower was streamside to being a good steward of the outdoors. His lessons taught me to love the places trout lived. He held them in high regard, They were almost holy places to him. He was not a religious person. When he spoke on stream it seemed like a sermon almost. My mom required me to go to church often and my Dad's speeches seemed like they came from the pulpit. He always told me to take it all in and always respect the outdoors.  This summer I was wading up this stream. The weeds were too high to walk the bank. I took a good friend with me to my special stretch of water. I wanted to share this place with him that evoked such strong memories of my father. My dad left me over half a century ago but his spirit lives on when I am on stream. I had a special hole that I wanted to show my friend. I was bursting with anticipation prior to getting there. My mind was replaying ancient memories almost like a slideshow. I remembered the first time there with my dad. I was five years old again. My trip to the past was abruptly terminated. Our trek had a hurdle. It was a wow moment. There in the tiny head water of my stream of time there was an obstruction. What had caused this to happen? It had endured countless rain events, even huge floods through its lifetime. I was certain my dad and I had walked in these same tracks decades prior. At first I was sad looking at the giant felled tree. My mind was rushing to and fro from years past. This tree was for sure older than me and it now laid across my stream. I paused and gave it the respect it deserved and pressed on to my final destination. Call it a metaphor or ramblings of an old gray trout slayer but it is a prominent memory in my book of life.
    • The camera gets turned toward me ever so often
    • had robins Monday but nothing today..
    • Robins are gone as well as most other birds. Think only the locals still here.
    • Woody seems to be a great guy and knows the lake really well from what I have followed.  He used to post on here, and I would follow his summer adventures, and boy did he seem to catch fish...and BIG fish!  I don't think you can go wrong using Woody!!!
