I decided with a child on the way and hopes she will take to hunting I would build a stand big enough. Well I sat down a month ago and started drawing out the plans. I came up with a 5'x8' blind. I also decided I wanted something low maintence and fully bug proof. The stand frame will be 1" square tubing, Sheetmetal skinned, fully insulated, and cedar interior walls stained. I will also add a small removable bed for her. I am going to use Deer View Slider windows. 2-48" and 1-72" the corners will be plexiglass. I found a new camper door with frame and screen on craigslist for $100. I will put it on a 10' tower with stairs leading up to a 3'x8' porch that will hold the propane tank and urinal. The stand will be fully wired with lights and 12 volt plugs to charge phone and ipads. All run off 3 batteries and solar panels.

NOW THE PICTURES

A Man after my own heart!!! Not having kids I decided to rais my standards also so I just went 5 X 5 and I will never go back. Make sure you put some upper and lower shelves in it and consider usingadjustable height brackets.

I built one very very similar and thought this thing is going to last forever. Turns out it wasnt tornado proof though! Actually found it 150 yards from where it was originally set up and had tumbled so many times it was almost round.

Good work. It should last a life time with a good coat of paint.
