If you didn't know....Lowes has a 8x10 ice house kit for $429.78! There is some walking involved and you get to pick through lumber piles, but it is all there.
Anyway, that is what it cost me for my lumber package today. I'm building an 8x10 shanty that will have a sloped roof 6'6" at the high side dropping to 6'3" on the low side. It is a "4 holer" (a 22" opening in all 4 corners) and will have the entry door in the center of the high 10' side.
The floor is 2x4 joists (2' centers) set on two 4x4x12' skids. I made the skids longer than the building to possibly help with loading/manhandling. The walls will be 2x2 studs sheeted with 3/8" plywood. The roof will be 2x4 with 1/2" plywood and rolled roofing keeping things dry. The walls and ceiling will be insulated with 1" foil backed low density foam (blue board was too expensive!).
Ok, what looks like a potential problem? It will be pretty heavy and I am working on the logistics of getting it on and off my 2 place snowmachine trailer. I plan on putting in a couple of hinged shelves and probably a small plexiglass window or two. Am I missing anything??
I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.
