Ice house pictures: one person ice house made from freezer with safety features included?

Here are two pictures of ice fishing house designs I like due to the way they incorporate natural light for the short, dark days of winter:



&quotThe Lakehouse" that Ron Ingals of Hermon built is mostly scavenged materials supplemented with $150 worth of purchased items. It features a large picture window, a spice cabinet (Ron likes to cook) a wood stove and home sewn curtains to name a few. All told, ice auger and snowmobile included, his investment is $250. Ron has three kids, so frugality is not an option, it is a requirement, he says.


But the most financially friendly and ingenious design goes to the builder of the freezer ice house:

The &quotChest Freezer Shack" can be used as a tote sled or can be converted by standing up into an ice shack. It has an electrical cable tray for runners, caped with nylon paper-machine foils.


This is a one person ice house made from a freezer. I remember the warnings when I was younger to never go inside an old freezer, but this is a very cool way to reuse the old icebox. Plus, this design comes with free integrated insulation.
