Nice job and so much less expensive than buying one. You should be proud of all your hard work.

NIce work. Is there a way to keep the windows closed when you aren't there? Only reason I ask is because them dang wasps will find a way in through the crack and set up shop. If you can get a mechanism to seal the windows shut so bugs can't get in, you will be much happier come fall.

Nice job! The only thing I think I would have done differently, (if it was mine) is to add longer windows. Those short windows, spaced far apart will leave big blind spots.

Looks good. Good size to save on cuts too.

I would add cleats, or a face up runner under those steps though. Push one through and you will have 4 PO nails waiting for you. I have scares from that very thing.

Looks great. I'm debating on building some bow blinds for this season myself. Tired of buying popups every couple of years. Even the high $$$ doublebulls don't hold up that well. Sent 2 of those back this year for repairs.

Thanks a lot. And yes there is 2 small holes in each window that has a curled piece of wire on the outside and comes inside the stand to be wrapped around a little screw. hard to explain but it keeps the windows sealed to the stand and no flapping in the wind or anything.
