If I'm short-timing, I pre-drill the holes and shove the house in position afterward.

If you're drilling in the house, I built something that looks like a triangle with a shelf on one side that sits up around the hole. It collects alot of the ice, slush and water.

The brand of auger you have has a lot to do with it. My Strikemaster turns pretty slow and that keeps the chips under the floor. I borrowed a friends older Jiffy last year, and the thing threw chips everywhere! It spun a lot faster than the Strikemaster. I also keep a broom in the shanty, and that cleans up any mess I might make.

I auger first.... before I fire up the heater. Auger carefully especially just before you go through. Don't "plunger" the holes like outside. Keep it cold inside helps and sweep, like Wables said.
I also keep a couple of those battery powered fans to move around wink.gif
Thats part of the reason that I'm replacing the holes with troughs, in my hardside.

I'm anal when it comes to snow, ice and junk layin around the shack. I know a guy with a shack and you cant stand within 3 ft of the hole without sliding in. You lay something down and it slides in the hole.

Cut out the bottom of a 5 gal bucket.
Place that over your hole and drill, it'll keep all the ice chips off the floor.
When you clean out your hole don't scoop it out the door, scoop it into a bucket.
Shovel the snow off the ice in front of the shack and make everyone stamps the snow off their boots. Use rugs that you can shakeout along with a broom.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
