fish house design

I just picked up this fish house and I like the hole placement a lot.  Its a 8 x 12 plus the v front.  Just thought I would share.  No chairs to mess with anywhere in the house.  Whole house only weighs 2100 lbs.  All aluminum frame-everything but the axle.  The cedar boards are pop riveted to the frame!

 Very nice setup.  Do you plan on staying over night in it?

 Boards right to the frame? Sounds chilly. Looks pretty darn cool though, I like that set-up.

I dont go around guessing cup sizes either I just know a nice rack when I see one.

I will stay over night in it atleast out hunting.  It didn't have a heater in it at all and I just picked up the one in the picture today. It is just a ceramic heater, but it has a 20 lb tank.   The plan is to put a vented heater in it though, just not sure where to put it yet.  I see that fish house supply has a few on sale now.  Ill post up one more pic of the back.  I want to keep it lightweight, as it will be pulled with the pioneer and track set up.

It will take a bit more to heat it I am sure.  It has the hard "blue board insulation in between the square tubing on the frame.  The floor is insulated, so that will help.

 I bet a poker/pinochle table would unfold and fit perfectly in that spot if the need arose.

Between the wheel wells I am thinking  a half a table that pops up with a drop down leg for each side to make one nice perfect bed/flat surface.

Cribbage table, you heathen.

 Awesome design. Pretty sweet how nobody has to squeeze their way through a maze of chairs. Even sweet if you could lay a board across and use the cushions for a bed.

Not sure who made it,  the farmer I bought it from told me if you want me to track it down I will.    He was from somewhere by Glyndon and is an aluminum welder by trade.
