Giant Bait Shop Yard Deco

Introduction: Giant Bait Shop Yard Deco


I have  always  loved  fishing and the look and  feel  of a cool cabin type lodge so  I built  one.  I  Hope  you  like  it . Like  I said  never   did  a instructable  before  and  most  of  this  was  random measurements   I  had  no  plans  just random  stuff  all added  together.  You  should always  remember  to use  safe  practices when  using   tools.

ALSO YOU NEED TO LOOK AT YOUR CITY OR STATE LAWS FOR HOW TALL THIS STRUCTURE CAN BE, AND I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES YOU GET WHILE MAKING THIS.


Step 1: The Base

Step 2: Front and Rear Walls

In the  next phase i took a piece  of scrap wood  about 3ft  tall and 12  inches  wide   its  the green square in this picture  shown. I laid  the fence  pieces  over  it and screwed  them  in  it.  Then  traced  pattern  of  front    you need  to  make  another  for  rear.  Then  cut.

now  take 2-- 2 x4’s the  length of  base of  the front  and rear of the shack and position on deck as to put rear all the  back  and  front one  in a way to leave  a deck (PORCH) in front of the shack. I used 3 inch screws to fasten to the deck  . BE CAREFUL on screws  you use as if they go through and you have animals  they  could  get hurt going  under deck.  make  sure  they  dont go through.     Take  the rear panel and place on deck in rear and screw into 2x4 that is on deck. Have someone hold  that,  while  you screw in front panel.  Now  measure  the space  between  rear  and  front panels  that’s  the width, take  a 2 x4      screw near the  top. Your helper isn’t needed now and it should be stable  enough for  you to secure .  Now  you  can  cut  sides  to fit  and  nail  in. I ran 1x 2  along roof line  of front and rear panels of shack that way I could fasten roof

don’t worry  about  exact  dimensions  because  it adds  to the  look  be  a little  off  I  didn’t  measure  almost  anything  except front and  rear  and  roof.
