What does it weigh? Is it fireproof? Is it high density foam? What will rats, mice, squirrels, coons, etc do to it if they start to chew threw it?

From the website off of the OP, I am guessing he is the owner of the website he might be trying to skirt the rules of the classified section.

Sorry, not the owner. I work for a guy and we've done foam in the oil and gas field for a while and when things started getting slow he asked us to think of anything else that we could possibly produce, so I came up with this idea.

The foam is eps and it is covered in a pure polyurea spray coating. Much like spray on truck bed liner.

I think this one man concept will weigh about 200 lbs. and Im not sure that rodents will mess with it. The polyurea coating is extremely flame retardant as that is one of its best features in the oil and gas field other than its resistance to chemical breakdown.

+1 for trying to make it through the sump. I have thought about doing a similar blind - but glassing it. That said - everybody has their own pet idea what is perfect. I prefer blinds larger than 4x4 - but mostly because they require a bit of juggling to move a long gun in, and I want to hunt with the kids.

Thanks y'all. It was kind of a long shot for me but it turned out really nice and tougher than I thought it would.

It looks like a good blind. I wonder about how critters will react to it?
Only time will tell. Good creativity!!

Might think about building a cold storage unit.

Thanks! My first idea that we made actually is like a cold storage unit that we use to duck hunt out of. Kind of like a giant cooler / dry storage box. I took one of the first ones to put in my garage to hold all of my hunting stuff, decoys, etc. for the offseason.

Neat idea! How do you think these would compare to fiberglass blinds?

In my mind the insulation of the foam and sound reduction are the biggest differences. Obviously Im partial to the idea but in all honesty I was blown away by the finished product. It far exceeded my expectations.
