Since I live in NC I have no need for, nor have I ever built a fish house. I do however know that this looks very nice. I would think if you built it now it would cost $4000+ not including your labor?? Am I close?

I would have to say around $5500 my neighbor bought a 14ft one last
year for $4500 and it was in very bad shape

It may be a stupid question but how do you determine where it is safe to roll those things over the ice and where to set your auger ?

i guess tyhe answer is it's never safe.

typically on a house like this, i myself would wait till i see someone on the ice with something that weighs about as much as this house then i would wait a few days for safe measure then i would pull it out with a 4-wheeler.

or around 10 inches of ice.

Wow ! Sounds exciting. I've always been interested in trying ice fishing. I once witnessed some ice fishing from the shore while visiting Chicago but was too chicken to even walk out there to see how they did it. I do mostly river fishing down here with a canoe or crabbing on the docks at Tybee Island

Anyone else have an idea of how much i should $ i should ask for this?

I'll give you $10.00. With Global Warming kicking in, your market has diminished buddy! :)

Try finding 1 or 2 on craigslist and see what they are running. I think it looks awesome. Obviously there's no reason to have one here in GA.

I been ice fishing. I much preffer off shore fishing with sunny skys and blue water and my nuts not numb. Im sure in a house like that it would be a bit different than the pop up we used but I will still stick to my inshore and offshore salt fishing :) come on down anytime.

Walleyefisher -

Who are you on the FM board???

I'm the same name there as here.

Anyways, I'd stick with Walleye for about the same money, maybe a little less.

Did you guys build it?? Or was is "professionally" built??

Here's the exact link to the part of the fishing minnesota board where they sell fish houses.


Also, might want to try the StarTribune, Pioneer Press classifieds, or TraderOnline.com

Also also, what are the dimensions of it?? How much are you looking to get out of it?? I've got a buddy that was thinking about building one next year.
