Hi, THIS MAY HELP..
I built a 6x8 three years ago that has worked quite well. First i built a base with 2x6's, put 2 2x6 skids on. floor is 6x4 to stand on and 6x2 open to ice.
I then got a 2"x2", 2"x4", 2"x6", 2"x8" and attached each on the sides of the base (each make the wall go up and additional 2 inches). I then built walls out of 2"x2"'s with 1/4 plywood and 1.5 inch pink hard insulation. each wall was apr 2 inches shorter than the next. Then hinged each of the walls on the corresponding 2x2-2x8 so that they all came to the same height when up. ( i had to calculate so when the walls fold down they would not hit the wall on the otherside). Then made a removable ceiling out of 2x2's/ 1/4 plywood (and pink hard insulation) , 2 sections of 6x4'.

when i take the shack apart i take off the ceiling, fold down the walls (one after another) then put the 2 ceiling pieces on top (for storage).
I transport on a snowmobile trailer, (winch it when i need to get it off the ice)

That sounds very interesting. You don't happen to have any pictures you could email me do you? This could be a way for me to go... Of course I would have to go smaller than 8x12, but that is possible. Most of the time I think I'll be fishing alone anyway. Maybe the dog. [email protected]

Thanks for the idea.

Like Perchman, I to made a take apart house. We made ours 8x8 and was trying to think of a way expand it to a 8x12, but we never did it. I don't have any pictures of it but if you want to leave an address, I can draw up some of the details on how we did ours and mail them to you, or we could get together and go through it.

KSW- Thanks for the offer. I'd really like to do this. Send me your email address and I'll get you my address. I'm not sure I want to post that here. [email protected]

So what does something like this cost? I would love a house, but the cost is the big factor. Cheap is good! (well, on some things anyway)

Deeky,

Last time I priced things out I figured it would cost me about 300-500 in materials. that's with insulation and thinner probalby 1/4" plywood sides. and treated floor and roof. I'm probably going to deviate quite a bit from my last plan as I want to make this one that I can take apart for storage so I really don't have a closer estimate at this time. If you know anyone in the construction field you could probably dumpster dive for quite a bit of material. 10 years ago I built a 6x8 for free this way. I had to use "chipboard" sides so it didn't last more than three years but for free I was very happy.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
