I have been working on this shooting house the last couple of days, and I will say it was quite a job to set it up. I pre built everthing bottom, each side with siding and it was a lot of trouble to setup. i used treated wood and the sides were quite heavy to handle (even with winch). Next time i will use lumber not treated and put the siding on after it is setup. Just wanted to pass on the info

Looks good. Nice job. The hard work will hopefully pay off in about 10 months or so.

Make sure that you use some tie downs. I have had two blow over through the years. Best thing are those screw in dog leash anchors and some rope or cabling. You might think that it is to heavy to blow over but the wind from a good thunderstorm will blow it right over.

I put some of those dog anchors in with some cable in prep for the storm tonight. I guess we 'll see if its going to make it. They are saying it is going to be bad tonight. Thanks for the tips!
