    Also, consider how you are going to get it to the lake. Ours just fits on a double snowmobile trailer. With a winch on the tongue of the trailer, I can load and unload it myself no problem.

You have to be there 2-3 days a week to keep an eye on it, especially the way the weather has been the last few years. More rain than snow.

    My father will be moving 2-300 yards from simcoe getting to the lake will just pull on a trailer or on the snow cover road.. he wants a permanent hut..
