I was talking to a friend today about fish houses. He brought up a topic of doing a fish house made of expanding foam he said he saw one a few years back. He said the floor was wood but sides and top were made of expanding foam. He said it was sturdy but light weight. I have sorta of have a hard time beliving this as I do not see how it could stand up to watter let a lone heating the inside with out melting it. Any thoughts on this matter.
I saw 1 on ebay that had a wood flr, 1 wall with door and 1 wall with a window. A wood frame with chicken wire over the frame, then covered with a blue tarp. Then he went inside and sprayed all walls with the foam and smoothed it out. Cut 1 hole for a stove in the back wall and a vent in the front wall. Looked great except for the blue tarp but that could be replaced by something else. It looked to be air tight and light.
HI GUYS! soder blooms has day houses like this, sorta. not sure what the supporting material is, but the studs are alluminum. they are warm as a bug and easy to heat. they are pretty tight too. dont think I'd want to heat them with a sunflower. I was thinking about geting into some rental houses for next season and I started looking into the spray foam. the stuff is pretty expensive. it gets cheaper as you buy larger amounts, but to buy enough to do 6x8 or 8x8 will cost you about 350 - 400- dollars I think I will give it a try though. I think I will build a couple 8x10 day houses and spray them. it wont be until this spring or summer when I do this so I wont be able to tell you my results until then.
anybody else have experience with this stuff?
