Portable Ice House Plans

Took my little 4 year old out fishing saturday and the wind came up and ruined things for us.  I got to thinking and would rather build a sturdy portable ice house versus buying one with aluminum poles, etc.  Is there anyone out there that has plans for building a simple ice house?  Any info would be appreciated by me but probably more appreciated by my 4 year old.

Something like this?

I'm sure vs. paying for the blueprints, somebody on here could give you a materials list.

Good luck!

If you don't want to build one yourself, talk to the shop teacher at your local high school. You can probably find a student that will build you one for cost of materials and he gets a grade out of the deal. Win-win.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

Speedmaker, Where are you located? I've got one similar to the one posted in the second post that I don't use anymore. I would sell it for a reasonable price. In good shape.
