  • Project Description

    This is a pilot house used in the winter time on my boat to keep out of the weather while driving. Light weight and durable it was the perfect project for my first Aluminum welding project. The sheets were easy to lay-out and cut from 1/8” thick aluminum and the cost of material was about $325.00.I found a company that made custom windows ($300.00). I will have this for many years to come. Materials and tools: 2 pieces 36”x 5' x 1/8” (sides) Aluminum 2 pieces 40” x 5' x 1/8” (front and top) Aluminum was cut to size at the Supply yard and I cut to shape with shop shears. It was welded using 100% argon. The front was done in a break and the top was shaped over a barrel and clamped down to keep the shape to weld.
