We got our first box-blind in place over the weekend. We have 4 tree-stands in-place but with the kids getting older figured it was time to get them involved! Took about 6 hours total. Built the frame at home in the garage then hauled it all out to our land. Adding the door & windows in the next few weeks.

Kids had a blast!

up Good job all the way around from building to getting to spend time outdoors with your kids.

Looks great. Hang some no pest strips in there and you're set.

Well played getting your kids involved. Y'all did a nice job. I'd highly recommend Deer View windows. up

Ha - I actually created my openings based on the Deer View measurements - planning on a 48x10 up front and 24x10 on the sides - all flipping up out of the way. Any suggestions/tips for install? looks pretty easy...

Put some windows in it or you will have a big owl house.

Looks great! Nothing like having your kids get out in the woods and start working on projects like this!

That is the best looking crew that I have seen in a long time. They did a great job.
Ours will be 5 years old in a couple of weeks and he HELPS ME A LOT. He helps with everything.

Thx guys!

Windows coming soon and an upgrade to the flooring. Gotta make it a little quieter in there as well...

I have a daughter about that age, she is not interested at all. My thirteen son on the other hand laid his first bead, welding on the blind we have in work.
