Do you want an insulated hunting blind that will last for many years, but don't want to spend the big $$$$ to buy one?
Are you pretty handy in the garage?

I have a bunch of these insulated panels that we've been building our latest deer blinds out of. The panels measure 64" x 22" and are 1.75" thick. They are constructed of high density foam insulation sandwiched between two sheets of 26ga metal. They have an insulation value of R-18. These are NOT Styrofoam...

It takes 20 panels to build a 5'x 5' blind and that is including walls, floor, and roof/ceiling.

There is no need for an interior frame. Just build a base to set your floor. The panels screw together and are very rigid. A simple piece of outside angle trim holds the walls together. I'm willing to share any information with you on building the blinds, as long as you don't go start up a multi-million dollar company building them! LOL

The panels are $12.50 each. So, you are looking at $250 for a 5x5 blind. You just need to get some good windows and a door from Tyler over at Deerview Windows.

We can negotiate delivery.

I assume 20 panels makes it a 5X5 and 5' tall. If I add 4 more panels it would add 22" to the height in order to stand up in it?

20 Panels is figured 5'8" at front and sloping back to about 5'2" at the rear. Yes, adding more panels on each side would give you that much more height...

One more question...........How heavy is a completed blind that size? I have a base already in place that I need to put a new stand on. I was planning on making one in sections to assemble in the field. But I like this one. I'd have to be able to place it on the base already completed.

I've never really weighed one of the blinds. But, I'm going to estimate the weight per panel to be between 10 and 15lbs, plus your windows and doors... I think you could build your wall, ceiling and floor panels at home and then assemble them in the field with a helper using the corner pieces.

Okay, I just took inventory and have 60 panels that we can spare right now. Working on a deal with a new supplier, but who knows what might happen there.

Thanks to all of you that have purchased thus far!

Old post, but are you still selling panels separately?
