Is there a certain type of paint you need to use when painting it?

Bonding primer is the key. Paint won't stick otherwise.

I don't have any pictures of mine, but have had two for about 16 years. All we did was predrill through the side and screw some treated lumber to square it off. Window mounted directly to the lumber.

The dirt floor worried me, snakes/rattlers, scorpions, ants, and everything else that wants to bite me. Now I don't need to be armed to open the door. It's sealed up nicely with carpet on floor and 6" up wall. Y'all wanted framed window pics -




Sorry about pic quality, maybe somebody can lighten them up and repost. You can see the sleeper deck up above windows, it's gone in my upgraded blind (another thread) and the sleeper deck is now below the hunting deck, in the new 'bunkhouse' entryway.

Oh, and don't think for one minute that I'm doing this. This is all UltraDeerTowers construction. You guys that are building your own would do well swinging by and looking their builds over. Dan is a great guy and will be happy to show you around. They're in Arlington, on Anglin St. Call him first.
