What does it weigh? Is it fireproof? Is it high density foam? What will rats, mice, squirrels, coons, etc do to it if they start to chew threw it?

From the website off of the OP, I am guessing he is the owner of the website he might be trying to skirt the rules of the classified section.

Sorry, not the owner. I work for a guy and we've done foam in the oil and gas field for a while and when things started getting slow he asked us to think of anything else that we could possibly produce, so I came up with this idea.

The foam is eps and it is covered in a pure polyurea spray coating. Much like spray on truck bed liner.

I think this one man concept will weigh about 200 lbs. and Im not sure that rodents will mess with it. The polyurea coating is extremely flame retardant as that is one of its best features in the oil and gas field other than its resistance to chemical breakdown.

+1 for trying to make it through the sump. I have thought about doing a similar blind - but glassing it. That said - everybody has their own pet idea what is perfect. I prefer blinds larger than 4x4 - but mostly because they require a bit of juggling to move a long gun in, and I want to hunt with the kids.

Thanks y'all. It was kind of a long shot for me but it turned out really nice and tougher than I thought it would.

It looks like a good blind. I wonder about how critters will react to it?
Only time will tell. Good creativity!!

Might think about building a cold storage unit.

Thanks! My first idea that we made actually is like a cold storage unit that we use to duck hunt out of. Kind of like a giant cooler / dry storage box. I took one of the first ones to put in my garage to hold all of my hunting stuff, decoys, etc. for the offseason.

Neat idea! How do you think these would compare to fiberglass blinds?

In my mind the insulation of the foam and sound reduction are the biggest differences. Obviously Im partial to the idea but in all honesty I was blown away by the finished product. It far exceeded my expectations.

Looks good, but like most of the blinds I see on here, the windows are MUCH smaller than I prefer. I want to see everything! Our blinds are typically 42"x42" or 42"x48" and are 1/2" light weight angle-iron frames with old barn tin for cover. You get almost a 270 degree view with only about 3/4" of obstruction at each front corner. We don't hunt feeders so the deer might be anywhere around you and seeing the most area possible is preferable. Height-wise the side windows are about 12" and have about a 10" winglet in the back corner so you can't be sky-lighted from the side. We don't use doors-the front window is about 15-18" tall and you just climb in. I'll post a pic sometime.

Hey man, whatever floats your boat. Everything I've hunted out of my whole life hasn't had anything close to the 3 1/2 foot windows that you are talking about. Typically just 2 foot X 1 foot windows. But thanks for the feedback! Happy Hunting!

I put 12" x 12" offset windows in my last blind and liked being able to avoid being profiled. I could go 12x24 on the next one and be happy. I use Deerview flip ups attached to 2x4 or 2x2's. The 2x4's make the windows deeper into the blind and I think help reduce glare and make me harder to see.

I like the idea. Did you use a mold for the framing? Will you guys be selling these? If so I may be interested in buying a couple from you.

We did not use a mold for this one. We are currently in the patenting process to allow further expansion. We only have one 4x4 one man blind left at this time.

How much are you charging for the 4x4 blind? What larger configurations do you plan on offering? I assume you will paint them?
