Lining inside of house

Recommended Posts

pikestabber

I have an old 4x7 that I am breathing new life into. It's aluminum on the outside and foam-lined inside with slate around the walls near the wood stove as a heat barrier. The foam has some sort of fiberglass mesh covering that was tacked over it (flexible, plastic-like) that was painted black, but it's all cracked and chipped and paint is flaking terribly. For that reason, I don't care to repaint it, but I want to restore the all black interior. What are my "lining" options? Black plastic? A friend of mine did that and it seemed to work well. Tar paper? Would this be safe if heated or not? In either case it wouldn't go up very close to the stove, but I can still get the heat rocking with the wood stove and I'm too naive to know if heated tar paper releases any toxins? Other options? Must be cheap, lightweight, and safe. Thanks in advance, guys.

Black plastic might condensate and tar paper may get to smelly when hot , I think I would try some of the landscaping fabric ,the kind that you put under the rocks so weeds don't grow threw. 2c

cheap, lightweight, and safe....goodluck.

If safe includes fire proof it gets tough. I've never tried lighting old dried out landscape fabric on fire, so don't know how that goes, but I am just gonna assume it goes up in flames just like everything else cheap and lightweight. I use tin behind my wood stove and have used black fabric stapled to the walls.

I don't mean safe as in "fire proof"...just safe as in "when it gets hot in the fish house it doesn't turn the wall covering to toxic fumes." I have plenty of fireproof wall coverage behind the stove.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
