Well after my last post about building a cheap blind, I looked through the links posted and took some advice and since then it has come a long way. I've still got to finish up the bench to sit on, but I am pretty happey with how the front shelf and walls came together.

Thanks Jeff. I was happy with how the front and back turned out but had to redo the side walls vs the pictures here in order to make them more stable and easier to take off for transport and then assembly in the field.

As for size, it's 8' wide by 6' deep. Should comfortably fit three and four if necessary.

It looks heavy, hopefully you will only have to move it once! I like the shelf and gun rack.

Thanks. I really appreciate the link you posted that you followed as well as your pics. I took your cue and made it modular. There is a back wall, two side walls,the bench and front piece. The floor is two pieces. It all fit on my 5x10 trailer and I was able to load it myself. It went right together out at the spot.

That looks great. Those solid walls will be appreciated when the temp drops and wind picks up. How any concern about rot with that OSB? Or will the paint protect it?

The frame is all treated. The sides and back are made from exterior siding and the plywood top is also treated. We will see how they all hold up to the elements but the skin is just screwed to the frame so easy and cheap to replace as needed.

I've worried about that too and may still end up cutting a viewing port in the back wall so you can look behind you while seated. But it's not as tall as it looks, if you are standing up you are above it. i think it is 54" so seated you barely clear the rear roof.
