About the black covering. It is vinyl coated polyester. I bought it at a tent and awning shop for $50.oo. That is the last picture for tonight.

I am orginally from southeast Michigan but moved to TEnnessee to work at the Saturn plant. I go home a few times in the winter to go Ice fishing. I will leave the shanty either on a lake close to my inlaws and best friends house for them to use when I am at home or on a trailer at my inlaws farm so who ever wants to take it out can. I am calling it my first 2 man sort of portable shanty.

  Since it is to dark to get good pictures of the outside of the shanty I thought I would take some of the inside now that it is all sealed up.

Thats not a shack, it is a piece of artwork, beautiful work man. I think anyone would say you should puff out your chest and strut like a rooster around that shanty (shanty isn't the right word).

OK here a few in the daylight. I still have some flashing to put on. I have a few things to do today. Not sure if I will be able to finish it today. I am a season ticket holder with the Nashville Predators and today is the first preseason home game and I have a lot to do before I get ready to go to the game.

OK I did take the time to staple the covering down on the ends. But I had to go buy another1x2 8 feet long, cut it and I am putting on the finish today. I put one coat on last night and another this morning and will do another tonight after the hockey game.

  I am interested in a little input from everyone with in the next couple of days. I have cut two of these from the left over plywood from the end walls. I was thinking of using them on the top of the end walls as flashing. But now when I look at the shanty I think they look kind of ratty. I am wondering what someone else would do. Should I take the time and go buy a couple more 8 foot long 1x2's cut them to fit and finish them or should I use the two that are ready to be put on?

I still have some trim around the door and the locks for the door to put on but for the most part it is finished, I am going to take some of the canvas that I have left over and sewing velcro to squares of it I will make patches to put over the vent holes.
