Got brakes? If not, get em. Your holes look a little close to the wall by your wheel boxes, you might have to trim the sides of your hole covers. I did the same thing, not a big deal. Why all the room up front with o hole? That’s a great spot to slit up between a door & hole And a bathroom. Be sure the door hinges toward the front. Good start.

Oops, sorry I didn't look closer at your pictures. Holes are ok as I didn't see how you insulated the floor. I prefer foam but insulation of any kind is a must. I would reconsider your door location and large storage (bathroom?) area in the front. That's a  lot of floor space to take out of a house your size. Site is screwed up and won't let me modify my last post. Look up Lip Ripper Guy's posts, you'll get 100's of good ideas. That hole in my bathroom/storage wall is where I put a tv, it takes up zero space from inside house.

Good job, it looks great. Just curious, did you caulk around your windows? I was told there was no need by the siding guys but I have to believe the water has to go somewhere as it runs down the sides.?.?

Like the color scheme! Did a similar one a few years back. Still going strong with little to no rust! Yea I'm curious on Hawg's question. I have re-caulked my windows (same brand as yours) and have had not water issues. Is a bit of a chore and on-going maintenance. Let us know!

 

Seating is always a pain in these things.. I've been unable to find a good way to make it space-saving, comfortable and fishable. What are your plans there?

 

Thanks,

One thing i'm super glad I did was take detailed notes on where the wiring is all located. Pictures with a tape measure  and drawings outlining wire placement. Has save a-lot of headaches with updates (rattle reels, couches, beds, bottle openers, antlers, etc).

Those wiring notes are invaluable. I never put in a screw or nail without checking them. Seating with those table/ booth things has to be the most uncomfortable things on earth. Never quite big enough to sit at and a pain to get in and out of. I did a couch type thing and have a collapsible table I keep in the bathroom for playing cards and stuff. You can store a TON of stuff under it too.

What he said ^^^^^^^

 

I created a "build book" that I keep in the fish house. It is fun to look back and reminisce on the building of the shack when fishing is slow. I took measurements of the main runs before spray foaming and wrote them in. I is also easy to count the number of pine boards each run is up on the inside..... One of the other benefits of finishing from the inside to the outside!

I did exactly the same thing, those pictures are invaluable. Mine starts with the bare trailer the day I brought it home. Man, that was a lot of work hours ago.  What needs to be done to get people back on HSO

shut down facebook :)  

 

I miss the glory days on here and seeing these builds 

Definitely spent a lot of time reviewing builds like LilRipper and Hawg. Pretty crazy how things can change. Personally with all of the keyboard warriors that are out in the FB world, I appreciate it here.

Hawg......you still around here?

 

If so, would you mind telling me more about how this bench works? I'm thinking about remodeling my old shack sometime and this looks like exactly what I need.

Yes Dave, sorry I didn't check sooner. Still have questions?

 

That's no problem. Just wondering how the bench works. What holds it in the upright position? Just friction?

It's hinged but yes, friction holds it upright. I thought at first I might have to put pins in it to hold the bottom back but it doesn't move. It stays whether you want it in straight back or full slouch position. It really does work great, I have never sat in a comfortable booth type thing in a fish house so I didn't go that way. I wish I would have gone to one step softer foam but it's still just fine. I took the leftover foam and put it on the ends as you can see in the picture and cut holes for cans. That has to be the ultimate can cooler.🍺  The best thing is how much storage you get underneath.

Where did you get your siding? I've been trying to find that style of siding with no luck. Also did you J-trim around your windows??

I have the same stuff and got it at Metal Sales in Rogers.

Thanks! When installing the panels did you use J channel on the corners or diamond plate? I was thinking about using diamond plate & using butyl tape to seal up the corners since the panel is corrugated & not flat.

    • I've been using the Digger Rack on my ATVs and sleds for some time now.  IMO they are the quickest and easiest way to go.   When I pull up to a spot the 1st thing I want to get at is the auger. 2nd is the depth finder.  I may start fishing or there or I might move but for sure I don't want to unload and dig for those in my tub.    Really though where the Digger proves its worth is with my sharpening business.  The Nils is unique to other auger blades in that the head is adjustable.  That means every blade is taken out to be tested and adjusted on the ice.  I may have 20 heads to test and adjust on any given day.  Racking the auger and clamped in takes a matter of a few seconds.   This makes for a perfect platform to change heads. 
    • Leech mentioned I might use the gun rack style, and I do.  There was a time I put the auger in my flip over tub but quit doing that for a few reasons learned on longer runs:   With gas I had a leak once.  You don’t ever want to repeat that, especially under a travel cover.  Thankfully mine was on top.  But on top you need to have a head cover and strap it down.  More time and hassle.   Its a lot of extra banging dealt to the auger or depth finder and even tackle.  The tub takes more of a beating than you might realize.   In the rack, on the snowmobile (and mounted high) you keep the auger more stable and out of the snow dust and slush you might deal with.  I always ran with the depth finder in the basket, the auger in the gun rack and a wore a fishing backpack with my tackle boxes and anything else I wanted quick access to like food, extra gloves, headlamp, camera, etc.     Its so much quicker and easier to run and gun that way, plus on warmer days or if the lake had bad conditions like deep snow or slush, I’d leave the tub behind completely so I didn’t have to worry about getting stuck as much.  Grab a rod box and go.  Completely self contained on the sled.
    • Ding,ding,ding Winner! 👍👍   "I have to unload everything to drill a hole.  With the rack, I find myself willing to move more."
    • Sorry to hear @smalliehunter it’s always hard to lose a good bird dog.   hopefully another bearded lady is in your future soon...the dog kind  
    • I always put my auger on the bottom of the sled so I don't tear the canvas or crush something (heavy old auger). I have to unload everything to drill a hole.  With the rack, I find myself willing to move more. Four bolts and off comes the rack, if I want to go sledding. Plus, when it nice out, I don't need the sled/house and can "run and gun" as they say.  Like I do much of that- just sounds good 😊
    • that can really hurt too....  sorry for ya...
    • kinda on the same page with Dave...a sled or trailer!!!!!
    • We lost another good one.  My best friend kaya left us today.  Hunted with her for 11 years she left us today at 13 years old.    
    • Well, maybe that's why I don't get it. I don't see a reason to bring more than the sled can carry. I usually have an auger, a heater, vexilar, a bag with 6 poles and tackle, bait bucket, bucket for fish, a case of Busch Light, a few other misc. odds and ends, and that's about it.   Actually, I just put the auger on top of everything anyway. If I had to carry something on my wheeler it would probably be my FL-20 to protect it.
