I built my current one at 5x8. I started thinking 5x7 but the extra foot minimized cutting and it sure is roomy as all get out inside.

After building (2) 5 foot deep stands, I won't ever go back to a 4 footer. An extra hour cutting and the nominal cost is well worth it for the long days spent sitting in it.

We built a 4x8 and it's great for 2 adults and a kid. Next one will be a 5x8 or 6x8 for the added leg room to stretch out or recline back.

Add a few vertical narrow windows and ready for two bow hunters too.

This, I have a 5x8 that has a 7 foot high roof with a residential door on it. It is everyone's favorite blind on the lease. Easily hunt 3 people and the kiddos can sleep in front or behind you on the floor if they need a nap.

Won't you have a lot of wasted material in a 5x7?

Just by making it 5 ft you are going to have waste but yes, with a 7 ft width it is more waste.

No there's not much waste....You can use the 12" drop from the 7 foot side for the 5 foot side...I am planning on building several so I'll use the drops from the floor and roof for the next one's...
