Fishkeeper....I was thinking about doing the exact same thing....but more like 24" walls....how heavy is your shanty with the modifications?

About a hundred pounds ...but you can tow it around with one finger ...on ice or hard-pack snow .
With a wood burning stove there is no condensation in the shack .
I use a small block and tackle to get it back(fully loaded with gear)up the snowmachine ramp(home-built) onto the half-ton. It's a lot easier than putting it up by hand by your-self .To put it up by hand , I have to unload all my gear first ....ain't as young as I usetawas .
I glued and screwed 10" long triangular corner blocks into each of the four corners of the walls for strength .
I put a tow bar on the front so that I could pull it behind the snowmachine.
The stove pipe is vented out the plywood wall opposite to the door.
I cut the bottoms out of two plastic ice-cream containers(1 gallon) and stuff them into the two 8" fishing holes cut into the 3/4 plywood floor (diagonal corners) ...keeps any cold air out of shack ...plus holes don't freeze up .

Here's a few pics. of my rig. Pulls very easy 1 person on the ice even covered with 4 inches of snow. The only time it's tough is when there is 4" of slush and hills are a 2 man job.Between the sled,shanty, and gear it weighs a wopping 250lbs. if not a little more.
See ya on the ice. Sean Palmerton Pa.

Nice set up you have there tuckerdg . Mine is very similar . I use only one stretcher pole(at the peak)...but then I hafta put up some coat hangers  :). I have a small wood-burning stove where the kid is .

That would be great. I'd love to see how you have the stove hooked up.I run a small camping grill in mine with the 20# tank out side which adds smo weight when tank is full. How did you run your chimney? This may work for me if it was just 2 of us.

A picture would be worth a thousand words ...but seeing as my daughter forgot to bring her digital camera to town , I will attempt to describe a few points . 
As stated before, I built a 10" wall around the 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood floor(for structural strength and storage when folded for transportation ). On top of the 4' wide end walls I hinged 50" high rounded-top walls. (I don't know why I didn't use 48" high pieces[a 4x8 piece cut in half]...probably 'cause I had 2 pieces that size already). 42 1/2 " from the floor and 12" from the edge of the wall I cut an 8 " square, (using the piece cut out as a hinged and hookable door) for a stove pipe hole . This square hole is covered , from the inside, with a square of tin . In the middle of the tin is a round hole cut larger than the stove pipe passing through it .I press a tin can through this hole and then put the stove pipe through the tin can, so that air circulates around the hot stove pipe, helping to cool it off .(don't want to melt the plastic tarp, 14 or 15 inches away)
Above the  stove-pipe door(hinged and hooked to keep out snow when transporting), I screwed a support for one of those locking shelf brackets . A piece of rounded-to-shape light steel was welded to the end of the shelf bracket . A geared hose clamp, pop-riveted to this piece of metal securely holds the 3" stove pipe , even in fairly strong winds . The bracket is removed when transporting the sled . 
The down-draft stove I built is 10" wide(including the hinge supports), 16" long and 14 1/2 " high and stands on 5" long legs . I cooked a freshly caught snot-rocket on top of this stove ,but lordy was it hot in there .....PS. ...best tasting jack-fish I ever ate .The 10" wide stove lays flat on floor when sled is packed up .
Hope this helps a bit ....until I can post pics .

I'll keep it short , tired. Last year constructed light weight very portable 4x6x8 shack with 2inch roofers insulation ;black  both sides , very rigid in the strong Gail's yah ho dar. 7 sheets 4x8 . started by building a base floor, and 2ft high wall portions stood 4x8 material on existing box style floor . clamped with 1/2 x4 inch strips 6ft (4) frt and back .ran she bolts through with hex to tighten . three bolt/ per 6ft snugged corners were all tied in with flashing, and bolted through w/ washers to stop pull through. 2 sets of cross country skis on bracket attached to back wall outer side of course. pulled like a dream. very warm with one lantern vented generously. The entire shanty disassembles and stacks up on rear panel with the skis

Here are pics to one I "built" last winter

http://community.webshots.com/album/296260691eDumEM

I took a 1972 Apache popup camper, gutted it (kept the bench seats/with pads and cabinets for storage) It will fish 3 easily, and 4 if you know them pretty well.

Not permanent, not dragable, but definitely portable.  Will pull with a snowmobile or 4 wheeler

Unfortunately, I am a big guy (thus the name) and the layout isn't exactly what I want, so I am going to sell it, get another camper, and modify it perfectly for myself (and son and daughter)
"If it ain't freezin', it ain't fishin' "

Big D nice looking shanty.  Have a fun time building the next one.  Things are always nicer when they are customized.  Are you still selling the old one?

Here is one I found out of ND.

You have to pay but its dirt cheap and costs less than $100.00 to build depending on where you live and current material prices.
I have seen some people use black visqueen for heat and darkness inside to see down the hole.

This is the design I based mine on.

http://www.blfga.org/blfga/shanty/shanti.html

I used the FishOntario style ends though (arched top instead of gabled). It weighs approx. 75 lbs and folds up really compact.

A little hard for one guy to set up though compared to the FishOntario style.
