Well I picked up a Rockin 2 Metalworks quad pod (Mike is a great guy and builds an awesome product). I didn't have the money to get a nice tower box blind so I figured I could make something pretty awesome out of this. I work in the boating industry so I had our canvas shop do some modifications for it. I added a custom made bimini top, removable carpet, sunbrella canvas that wraps around it with a zipper door, canvas that zips from the bimini to the frame on 3 sides with windows. I think it turned out great and I have hunted it a few times and it is very sturdy and comfortable. It blocks out the north wind and keeps the rain off.

Here it is naked

Here is me putting the canvas up

Here it is in its final state

Here is a view from 100yds out. The feeder pin is 220yds out but the pasture is big and deer just feed all over it.

Great job! Had a buddy that built about 20 of those in the 90's. He took and ran an angle wire from leg to leg for cross bracing instead of welding a brace. It really made them much sturdier. I would think your T-post should really help a lot also. The tarp and camo netting are sharp up
