Wondering if anyone has any plans or pics of a ladder stand converted box stand. Planning to build one. Not looking for a huge shooting house on 4x4's, just a one man ladder stand with plywood sides and roof with a large enough base to hold a chair. Hoping to build something cheap and easy, but covered for those rainy days

My main concern is how to support the weight of the stand itself, and the 200 pounds (pure muscle of course) i will add to it and keep it from sinking, sliding down the tree, etc... Could I just build a standard ladder stand with a 3/4" platform large enough, and then run some 2x4 braces from the ladder up to the back of the base/floor? Or should I build it, and then when done, add some 2/4 legs from the base/floor down to the groud for rear stand support?
