That looks a whole lot like my Big Dogg and I’m a fan. The best question is where did you get the metal panels? Had I been able to find them I’d have built my own. What did you frame it with?

Thanks everyone, the exterior is mossy oak bottomland sheet metal purchased from Metal Mart. The entire frame is 1.5” square tubing. The interior is finished out with 1/4” beadboard plywood from Home Depot. I’ll post pictures once the staining is done. We fabed the platform and stairs ourselves. Still have to prep and paint those. Both stairs and platform detach from the stand for ease of movement.

I’m assuming the door and windows are DeerView brand?

Great looking blind, but aren't the windows too low?

Not sure, bottom of the window is 39” up from the floor, thought that was pretty standard.

We use 40 and right in there seems to be pretty standard. It may just seem low cause the overall blind seems tall.

That is a great looking blind. Very nice build. Happy hunting.


If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

Looks great!
Two questions for ya. I’m wanting to make something similar.

-are the legs a continuous piece from bottom to the roof? Or are they mounted on there somehow? I didn’t see any brackets or anything, so I’m assuming a solid piece.

-how much do you think it will weigh? Not including stairs
and catwalk?

Yes the legs are continuous from ground to ceiling. Not sure on weight. My brother in law and I tipped it into the back of a truck, hauled it to the stand location on the ranch bout a mile down the road and stood it up just the two of us.... but I wouldn’t recommend it! I’d say 3-4 people minimum to move it. When we go back down I’ll take some more pics now that it’s finished.

Very nice!!! Out of curiosity, did you use any insulation board between the paneling and sheet metal?
