I am going to build a blind this next year, a big one. What are some things you have done to the interior of you blind that you don't necessarily need and others would say are you hunting or living Post up some pics of the interior also so I can get some ideas.

An example. Saw a guy that put a USB and 12volt port in the wall

I had an extra string of white solar Christmas lights.....

I put a small inline switch on the inside, put the solar panel/battery box outside in the sun and ran the lights around the inside top of blind.
I use them when I get into or out of the blind at night or before we uncover the windows.

Funnel with a buried hose to wiz in, big propane tank with a hose for your heater. My dad put a toilet seat in his this year on hinges to folds down and you can slide a bucket right under it and do your business. He said he's too old to be climbing ladders in a hurry.

I've got a solar panel with a marine battery that powers a cigarette lighter adapter, a couple of red LED clearance lights mounted on the ceiling, and a small computer fan that blows over top of the Buddy heater to circulate the heat.

Nicely trimmed with weathered cedar. I figure this shabby chic look will add $200 to it's value.

I've got a solar panel wired to a feeder battery. It powers a 12V charging station, and green LED "make ready" lights mounted down low off a switch near the door. That way you can get your gear sorted in the dark without flashing a headlamp everywhere. Also have a little huffer fan for those hot days.

Other good things are shelves high and low, with rubber liners to keep them quiet. I keep a foam mat rolled up on the high shelves for mid-day siestas. Carpet on the walls to soak up the bumps, and rubber horse mat on the floor. Also have window screens in the back two windows to let 'er vent in the early season (no shot to the rear at my spot).

Some good ideas right there guys, I appreciate it. Solar panel and a 12 volt battery for L.E.D lights- "Genius", and why not a phone charger to go with it.Going to spoil myself a little for next year for sure.

Wow, very nice blinds--for the most part, mine are very bare. Mr. Buddy, crappy chairs(put all your money in the chairs)my windows are crap(get good Windows) my floor and covering is bad(make sure the floor is quiet) and get one of those water tight plastic containers at the boat section of Academy. Put some matches, toothpicks, a small light, some ear plugs, etc. and get to hunting.
