Ice House Help?

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone i just got done making an ice house 6x7x6 and i was going to heat it with a portable propane heater. Is there any regulations i should consider when using one. like with vents? Its made of plywood.

Thank You

Your safest bet is with a Mr. Heater Buddy or Big Buddy Heater, I strongly recommend spending the extra money on the Big Buddy.

They are ventless, and you don't have to worry about cracking a window or leaving the door open like you would with a sunflower.

If you do use a sunflower, just make sure that the head isn't touching the wood and you'll be fine.

Another thing I like to do is have a small hole run outside of the house and run your propane hose through it. That way you can save space in a smaller house like yours by not having the tank in the way, and it's more safe.

Good luck.

      Hoping things button up with the colder night time temps later in the week...all the crappies I have been getting lately have been shallow....and I'm talking even on edges of pencil reeds in that 8ft depth.  IMO they are acting like late March panfish, very aggressive and seem to have started the migration towards their spawning grounds.  I'll be out catching crappies even if I have to walk out...who knows...maybe mother nature will throw us a another curveball and it will get real cold again in a couple weeks. Good Luck!
