On my drive home I started considering the need to. I built another one 6 months ago same design that hasn't been anchored and its fine. In the 33 years I have been hunting on my place, no blind has been blown over not even a tower. It might be the abundance of cedar that act as a wind break or I am down in a low spot on most of my property. Still considering it though.

Very well done. So you made it so you could disassemble the 4 walls and the screw back together on site?

Great build.

If I were you I would really put the paint on thick or that OSB will not last long.

Yah, plus the base is too big to fit flat in the trailer with the blind assembled. Also, 7 hours of driving with a giant wind sail would kill my gas mileage.

5 coats of paint. Plus we repaint our blinds every 3-4 years.
