Built to hunt with friends and family. Used quite a bit of scrap wood to keep cost down.

Elevators on the corners will let me elevate it some day but for now it's on cinder blocks.

That should do the job, like the paint job.

I’d continue to darken the interior.
Looks good.

Nice work. Do you use the same type of thumb latches to hold your windows in the up position?

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Yes, sir!

I have an idea for your roof. PM if you're interested. Or, search my posts and you'll find some pic's of what I'm currently hunting from. I built it abut 4 years ago.

I like it.
5 x 7 is a great size for a blind.
I often tell those that want to go 4x8 to chop off a foot from the length and add it to the depth.
