Ice House Building

Starting a build on a 6.5x10 ice house. I plan on using commercial shop door panels. Looking for ideas to mount the panels. 

Has anyone built theirs with panels?

I would build a steel frame to box them in. Then you shouldnt have a problem.

I would get  3 x 3 angle iron and weld to trailer and bolt the bottom panel to the side of the angle iron. And then use flat iron straps in place of hinges.

 

I thought about the garage panels many times. Just didnt know where to get them.

I used structural panels on mine and channel iron to hold it on the bottom.

I am getting the panels thru a door company, they have to pay to get rid of the old doors. I am getting the commercial door panels as they are insulated and covered with aluminum on both sides. Where residential only covered 1 side.
