Carpet floor?

Recommended Posts

spearingboy

First off I'm glad to see that there's finally a spearing forum. Just wondering how many or if any of you guys carpet the floors on your spearhouses to cut down on the noise? I have a Mankato house and I would like to carpet it with some indoor/outdoor carpet but I'm not sure how it will hold up with the water getting into it and then freezing. Any comments? Thanks.

Welcome to our new forum.

I have a two mankato houses that i use both for spearing.

I have placed carpet in both of these houses. There is no reason why a guy should not have carpet in the house. Like you said, it cuts down the sound, but it also will help with heat in the house.

I highly recommend placing carpet in the bottom of the floor.

Its a must have in your house!!! The carpet will also help from light coming in throw the cracks in the flow. It also makes the house a lot more comfortable to sit in for hour on end!!! smile.gif

I've had the same carpet in my mankato for over 20 years. In addition to the above mentioned reasons its also nice to stretch out on and take a nap on those slowwww days.

Thanks for all the responses guys. What types of carpet do you use?

Mike89 good to hear from you. I was hoping that you would post on here. I'm living in Osakis right now and am going to school in Alex. We should get together sometime and do some spearing.

that is true. I have taken carpet from houses that people take out, and use it. Dont spend the extra money for carpet that you know will be trash in 2 years. Take some that you know that people are going to throw it away.

One suggestion,

If you get the freebie from a removal make sure that no cats or dogs have done thier bussiness on it! Check the back for stains!

Don't ask how I know this blush.gif

Later,

Kenny

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
