Check out the RealBark 6 foot diameter circle blinds (GBX-6). Spacious, cost effective, durable and easy to set up and move if need be.

I bought some Marine grade plywood from a shop making corporate sign boards for commercial signs like you see in front of large buildings and built 2 blinds for myself and my son. I bought some towers from craigslist thinking they were 10" turned out to be 14' and 15'. I raised them in 2012 and then in 2013 attached a staircase to my 15" blind and they have held up great. A lot of work but I actually enjoyed it. Don't really want to do it again any time soon!

I built some blinds years ago out of old real estate signs from ranch listings. They were 10 years old when I built the blinds. It was 4x8 sheets of high quality exterior plywood that had a vinyl coating on both sides with the sign add for the properties on it. That blind lasted 20 years of use. Last year the woodpeckers finally got the better of it and we replaced it with the one I attached a picture of above. The blind isn't as good as it once was but is still perfectly huntable to this day, just not as roomy or tight as it used to be, lots of bugs!

I have 2 dillon blinds, 2 Sportsman Condo blinds and a Redneck blind. All of them are great and have zero problems.My only issue is the Redneck blind is fading on the south side. I also have 3 wood blinds that constantly need maintenance. I am slowly replacing all my wooden blinds with goods blinds like I stated above.

Have a look at Antler Shed blinds, IMO best you can get for the price.
