I finally finished my first blind. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would, but I will be nice and warm this season! I had to buy the 4x4s and truboard. All the framing was scrap my work was going to throw away. The windows came out of an old camper top. I had the metal left over from doing my house last year. I've got about $75 into it.

Should work and a lot better than setting out in the open. Being a few feet in the air is nice too.

Good looking set up you got going there. Will be a lot more warm then sitting outside in the elements.

looks like it will work well for you...are you going to anchor it to wind proof?

X2. I learned the hard way. Anchoring it is a lot easier then standing it back up. If you put the legs in the ground that should anchor it fine.

I put all the post 2ft in the ground and filled to the top with quickcrete. I've been in it with some of the 30 to 40mph gusts we've had this year and it seems to do fine.
