Ok, several hours sitting in my camp chair over my ice hole on Finger lake got me thinking about building a shanty.
I have an 8x8 snowmachine trailer and I'm thinking of building an shanty that I can haul on it. Have any of you guys built one before? What am I looking at in regards to weight? Logistics of loading it on a tilt trailer? Other issues?
I have seen the photos of all the decked out shantys from down south with satellite tv and espresso bars, but I doubt mine will be quite that decadent. Just something to hold a little heat and keep the kiddos warm while we slay the fish would be adequate.
I'm guessing 1/2" plywood with blueboard insulation would be the basic setup. Any suggestions on framing? 2x4?, 2x2?, ??. Skids? Floor setup?
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated (photos would be great!)
