I am looking to build a 4x6 or 4x8 box for my place in Goliad.
Where do you guys think I can find a tower for it at a reasonable cost?
What is a reasonable cost?

Lyssy & Eckels in George West keeps them in stock. Just have to call the store for a price. They have them with staircases. Staircase adds a lot to the final price.

A metal stand with a porch will be in the $900 range.. Check the classified section here also if you don't mind hauling one.

In my experience you can save some serious $$ by working with a local fabricator vs. buying one at a box store. Cost will vary depending on what features you want and who paints it. A porch and stairs are nice, but add significant cost compared to a simple ladder.

Feel free to PM me if I can help with more info.

This is a 5' tower I recently built. Actually built two of them. Cost about $175-$200/ea to build, but my dad owns a metal shop so that is his pricing. This one isnt painted, but will be. I already painted the other one. More time is involved than you think. So if you're thinking $850-$1k/ea is high, like i did, its NOT.

Edit: forgot to add this tower is for a 4x6 blind w/ a 2' landing. My 4x6 stands have the door in the 4' side.
