3 - 4'x8' for top and bottom
9 - 4'x8' for the 36' of siding
bunch of 2"x4"s
6 - 2"x6"x8' for runners

If you get too many, you can always take them back.



Good Hunting,
Gary

could be wrong but i got 6 sheets for the siding. i finished my 6x8 with 6 sheets for the siding. osb 7/16 is cheaper but heavier 50 lbs per sheet. 3/8 is 35 lbs per sheet. is the the 6x6 going to be elevated? what kind of windows. you can use the plywood cutoffs for window covers.

some people rip the 2x4s in half. then your bunch of 2x4 will be a whole bunch. i would leave the roof in 2x4s for strength.

is your blind going to come apart for moving or one structure?

A little tip...
If you are trying to save on material, make the tallest part of your stand 6'. That way your 4x8 sheets on the sides will yield a 2'x4' scrap piece that can be used to help piece together your floor or roof. I can actually built a full 4x4 stand with only 4 pieces of plywood using that method.

You are correct sir, my bad. Only need 6 sheets for 24' of siding. Not sure how you got 6 sheets to cover 28' unless the blind is awful short and you mixed in the left over pieces.

the blind has 6' walls with a framed section that goes on top for the roof. just tall enough for my 5'11" body to stand up.

i put the 2'x8 and 2'x6' pieces on the bottom and used a 2x2 on the seam. i tacked carpet on the inside up to that 2x2. i used the plywood cutoffs from the 6' sides for the window covers.

here is how i used 2x2's to build the frame. my first blind build. the roof is flat and i stopped the frame on the walls at the top for the roof frame made of 2x2's to slip down. i used seam seal to keep rain from getting through the seams of the metal on the roof. the blind comes apart. four walls, roof section and two 1'x6' foot floor sections to go under each end of the blind. the blind sits on a 7' tall platform that has a 6'x6' top that i had built last year and had popup on. the blind hangs over each 1'.

you could get away with less framing if it was built in one structure but mine needed to come apart to get it up on the platform.
