A Fish/Whale Shaped Ice-Fishing House

I have a full-out sketched plan to build something very similar to this, and had never seen a fish-shaped ice-fishing shack before, but always figured SOMEONE had to have built one…..sure enough- Ron McMullin from Northern Wisconsin has- and its built/scultped out of of foam-insulation. The idea/plan I have would be made out of plywood- not as warm, but more durable. Great stuff though Ron!

you could take one and a half inch board foam and make rings then glue it together to make your form. The cutouts would make your smaller parts. When you are done shaping me with a rasp and corse sandpaper paint the outside and the inside for that matter with snowcoat. You can also tint snowcoat so you can have more colors than white.

I really do like the idea and think it’s a great one. I missed out on some BIG styrofoam blocks and thick sheets or it. Bummer!

I have seen this one on many trips to the U.P. and love it! Never thought I might consider that type of work, but we will see this summer. I have intentions of building a new shack fr next year. Check Gogebic next season!
