Looking for pics of a metal frame deer blinds. Would also like to know what they used for the exterior, how it's attached, and what size metal they used if on a stand.

I'm planning the stand for next year. Right now the plan is 1.5 inch square tubing for the walls and roof. Thinking about 5x8, it's usually just me, but I find other people hunting with me a lot.

Crappy pics wade but this one is a 6x6. Framed in 1.5" 14 GA and skinned with 16 ga smooth. We attached the skin with roofing screws, and used some thin angle trim for the top and corners from Lowe's. Custom DeerView hinged and sliders with one of their deluxe 30x72 doors.

Monarch makes one that bolts together out of 1" square tubing. I bought one 4 x 6 a couple years ago. It is skinned with a thin 1/8 metal and insulated with styrafoam sheets. I added a couple shelves and shooting rest in front of the windows out of 2x4's. Made it pretty simple to bolt it together in the field with just 2 people. It fit perfect on a 16' pallet rack leaving a 2' porch on the end. I have had a door closing issue but that is due a leveling issue.
