Portable fishhouse.............kinda

Recommended Posts

I am going to construct a 6x8 fishhouse which can be take apart. The sides, and roof will be able to be taken down for storage reasons. Just wondering if anyone is familiar with this kind of setup and how you connected the walls and roof sections. I looked at a manufactured model but it was overly complicated and time consuming to assemble. Thanks.

Howdy...

Here's a pic of a little house I built a few years ago. It ended up being almost an 8'x8'. Breaks down into a bunch of sections. In fact, this one is stored in my basement as we speak. Takes roughly an hour to set up alone. Less than half that with two working. Two piece skid and two piece roof (that never leaks grin.gif)

A while back a few members here were interested in building one like mine so I did a quicky write up on it's construction. If you're interested, post an email addy and I'll try and find my doc file... (BTW.... My computer is a MESS!!)

Hey Dan!

I've still got your file if you need it. Would like to see that shack of yours in person sometime too.

UG....

I may just have to take you up on that file. If you'd be so kind, could you send that to these two folks so they don't have to wait for me and my confused computer.... You'd better send one back to me as well. Just in case. (email deleted) You'll have to come up and see the relatives this winter and make a pit stop out at the lil' green house. Sundowners out on Wacky were fantastic last year!!

fubar & J. Hall.... If you have any questions after you read the write-up, I'll be more than happy to help if I can...

Tried the other thread, now I'll try here. I would love a house, but the cost is what hold's me up. What does something like this cost? Cheaper than buying? Rough estimates are fine. Thanks.

Well.. Well.. Well.. Look at all the interest in my little shack....

At least I'm not the only one with "ice fever"..

UG... Thanks for sending me a copy of the file I sent you... Now we all can be on the same page if anyone has questions...

BTW... I think I may have enough EPDM rubber to do another roof IF anyone is interested, and IF I don't build another house. Contact me at the email listed above...

Oh yeah.... One more thing...

I did locate the pic CD that shows how the individual sections bolt together to make a complete house. I still have to download those, but they'll be available shortly...

Dan

I trust you'll take care of the latest set of requests for your little beauty?

I'll be greedy and ask to see what other pics you have of it too.

Maybe we can hook up on the ice this winter...only 4 months if we're lucky.

MAIL CALL!! MAIL CALL!! MAIL CALL!!

Pharcta2, Perchpapa & Gus... You've got mail.

UG... I'm putting your package together. Hold tight buddy!! It's comin' soon....

Deeky... It's been a while since the initial construction, but I'll guess I "invested" about $500.00 to $600.00, after everything was said and done. Don't hold me to those figures... It's been a while and my mind ain't as good as it used to be... confused.gif There's certainly things you can do to lessen the expense. Number of windows for example. I went a bit crazy....

He's watching this thread, so I would suspect he'll see your request and help you out.

PLEASE!! I'M MELTING!! BRING ON THE ICE!!!!

David... It's rather large (+1mb)... But it's on it's way!!

Mods... If it's okay, I could post a bunch of pics showing this little gem and how she goes together... Would save me a ton of emails.... What do ya think?

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
