Looks good...In the future you might want to try a 15 degree angle...You will find that the higher you go up your legs will stick out to far...Your strength is not horizonal its vertical...You will be just fine with what you have but don't go to high with it...Oh yeah they look good enough to sale...I would buy them...

I work for a steel company and my cost is not real good right now either. I really like the looks of those. You could probably sell a few of them.

I like the looks of that, do you have any picks of the finished product yet? I want to make a blind that I can tip into the back of my truck. I'm wanting to insulate it for the cold weather here in Iowa but I need to keep the weight down so hopefully one person can load and unload it.

I had to go with 10 degrees when I went over head high with the platform.
Looks really good, can't wait to see it finished.

Nice deal, I would have to agree the 30 deg angle is going to eat up alot of leg material.

If the floor of the house is set at 7', the legs will be @ 9 1/2' long each, the foot print on this puppy is going to be @ 9' corner to corner.

Edited to add: I would be very concerned about the legs strength being spread out at that height or above. One weak or badly knotted 4x4 could bring the entire house down.

I would love to have some of these. Anywhere I can buy them?

I am building a shooting house to keep me warm this winter. Maybe I am getting old but the cold temps got to me last year. I want the floor to be 12 to 16 feet off the ground. Planning on base 4 foot by 4 foot. Probably 7 foot interior height so I can stand up and stretch. The biggest problem I have had is figureing how to make a good base. I have some ideas but somthing like this would make it really easy.

I made 4 of those myself recently for a shooting platform and 30 degrees is too much of an angle on ours @ 4 feet off the ground. I have a total of about 20 minutes time in each one and get the material for my personal "government" projects free,since I work for a steel supplier.
