I'm looking to build a couple new blinds this off season and would like to know where to buy materials like flat sheet metal camo or not , doors , windows Ect... I've seen plenty of nice metal and fiberglass blinds on the market but most are 1500 and up without a stand . I'd rather build my own anyway but would appreciate advise on a material supplier (somewhat) local to Ft worth / weatherford Area . Thanks .

I don't know that you'll find all that at a one-stop shop. Anybody that would likely have it all is probably in the business of putting it together and selling it for $1500, not sourcing it to you so that you can do it. For doors/windows, you might talk to deerviewwindows.com, and source the metal from one of those listed above.

Buy a fiberglass with lifetime warranty and you don't have to worry about it.

Most fiberglass blinds are 4x6 which is to small for my son and I so I'm looking to build a 6x6 or 5x7

that would be false

there's a place in Santo , west of weatherford
about exit 386

WesTex Steel

he's got everything, even pink ones

his 6x6 have lockable door, 360 shooting view/windows, carpeted

I can sleep in one of those , 7 ft man can stand in one w no problem

I guess when I said most were 4x6,l was referring to the ones in my price range.I have seen 6X6 and 8X8 blinds but their way too high dollar for me plus I enjoy getting my son involved in a build of our own.
