Hang in there for the photo's. I sent them to Paul late this morning and I would assume that he probably won't post till this evening after work?

It is a 6.5 x 14 Roadking frame. Thanks. It was a lot of fun building. I am getting pretty anxious for some serious ice. LOL

Tightlines, you've got a heck of a fish house there. I'll be in Fargo this Thursday, I may give you that call and come take a peek. One problem, my email program went to ***t so I lost all my info in it along with your number. Would you mind emailing it to me again. [email protected]

Thanks,
Fisherdog

Are there four holes, or six holes? And I assume that those are hole lights, on the sides, correct? What are the black boxes below the cabinets by the tv?

WOW Tight! Excellent job! A few questions What is the final weight? final cost? Where did you find the parts like doors windows?
I noticed the vinyl siding what are the corners they dont look like the typical big vinyl corners.
Roof material? wood frame? I was in one that a guy built last year not nearly as nice as this, he had a homemade operating exhaust fan over the stove he used I believe a blower from a small car for the fan he says it works great for the fish fry
Congrats on your new home and don't forget the champaigne and the ribbon cutting.

This is 100% what its all about...

I am in the remodeling and window business so I got a good deal on the windows,aluminum siding,cabinets and strong panel steel roof. It is all wood construction on top of a Roadking frame. I had it out to the weigh station and it came in at 2100 lbs. I have a little over $5000.00 invested. Probably over 150 hours including the drive time looking for that one needed hard to find screw or whatever.LOL I pick up the dinnette at a RV store for 225.00 Got the carpet at a boat dealer for 20.00 bucks. He was about to throw it out and it was a 300.00 dollar peice that they had taken a small corner off to do a repair on a boat. I did get lucky on a few found items.Got a lot of ideas from you folks. Thanks for all the tips...
BTW-- the corners are steel siding j-channel. Didn't think that the aluminum J would hold up as well as the steel.

Tightlines-
Yes! Now that's what we like to talk about around here. I like it. I like it. I like it a lot.

Now for some tough questions. After all the work you put into the house I know you have a new found respect for the so-called "pro's", but if you were to sell your house what is it worth to you? Also,now that you are about to throw your wallet out on the ice have you thought of any ways to try and safeguard it?
Those are a couple of the questions I had to answer when the thought of leaving the shack out on the lake for any extended period of time came up. I found out that we don't own our materials,...materials own us. I'm not trying to be a downer, just thought that we could start another dialog. TROY

Hey thanks Grump and everyone for all the nice compliments. All of a sudden I am finding out that I have a lot more fishing buddies this year than last year...LOL LOL. So did you folks hear that Marcum has a new camera out called a OVS560. I quess the camera motor for rotation is on the camera and it also has temp and depth the camera is at. Might just have to upgrade the 500 to a 560. Does it ever end???

Tightlines:

You might make me so envious that I'm forced to move to a state that is cold enough support that house. Kudos from Colorado on a job well done!

Hey Troy:: How is your new shack coming along? I did talk to my insurance agent and he told me that the shack is covered under my home-owner policy. The only thing it is not covered is sinking. That would really suck. I don't think I will be leaving it out when I am not in it. Should be pretty easy to pull around. Hey Backwater, if ya's see's me out on da ice, just stop on in anytime. Am planning several trips to Upper Red and LOW so am getting anxious for 12" of ice..

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      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.
