    The Mica I is a 12x16. Looks easy enough to put up.

    ADUKHNT, This is a basic 12x16 with a full loft. It would provide shelter for you and your dog and a couple of hunting partners plus some gear. This design may be a bit more or even a bit less than you may require.

    I just built at Lake Louise.

    Look at a saltbox design if you are looking for loft area. Easier and possibly safer to roof.

    I would certainly be interested in any design that's easier and safer...but..can you explain how a saltbox plan meets this criteria?

    This is a saltbox design house. No eaves extension, entry under the eave side. Perhaps we aren't talking about the same saltbox.

    Perhaps he's just talking about a shed roof building. A single pitch roof and work well, but in snow country the steeper pitch of Mic's design is more desirable. In Lake Louise country snow weight is not as big of issue as it is in the western Susitna Valley.

    I have to assume so.

    Sorry if I was not clear.

    It would have 2 shed roofs. One on the loft, one on the first floor. Each seperately framed and covered. Pitch can be whatever is needed.

    I did a 12/12 pitch 20X36 that peaked at 27 feet and it was high enough to pay a roofer. Not cheap at all.

    Exactly. The lower roof would act as scaffolding when working on the upper roof. No trusses to buy/build. With the right windows the view could be pretty good.

    Problem, It would need a long beam in the middle. I carried 2 - 20 footers in over the ice. Putting them up was a chore.

    I am up there a "bit" in the winter and have 2 freight snowmachines w/sleds. In a pinch I could haul a bit in for you.

    I was always taught to be a good neighbor.

    Take all that you can in VIA the ice.





    Plan carefully. Build a model if you need to. It sucks being short a couple studs or OSB.

    Get heavy items in over the ice in the winter. Stove, windows, doors.

    A full pallet of 2X6X10 was a bit tough for my 300F. I swapped it to the 550F and it could have hauled twice that. I have a very easy trip. Mostly flat with only 1 minor rise.

    I figure those beams were 250-300# each and I took them in at 35MPH and still had throttle left.

    mike.. given that you have done a couple of these remote projects. Would you rather build on site, assemble prebuilt panels, or haul in modules. I have been thinking panels might be the easiest.

    Much easier to haul in pieces and put it up on site. We tried to bring on in as panels. Takes forever to try to haul, and risk breaking things up. If you are building with a generator and an air nailer, it doesn't take long to bang a cabin together once all the material is there. The quickest way we have found is to precut and and label as much as you can at home. Once all the material is on site, 4 guys can put it up in a day generally if it is mostly cut and labeled at home. Sure beats trying to haul panels.

    What size/type of panels did you try?

    After considering it I can see how stacking panels on a sled too high might become top heavy.
