    Man that sucker is well insulated. The smell of the cedars is worth that, cedar will keep the smell down. What is your total investment in that

    I'm currently building a another blind, I'm putting removable wheels so I can pull around with ATV and pull the wheel pins and it drops to the ground.. Here's a few pics so far

    Trailer will be your best bet - Get that thing on some wheels!

    After reading this entire thread and following closely, I have decided to try and make something similar. I am having a lot of trouble trying to find the wire mesh that you have as your base for the structure - so I ask - if I use a wire mesh that is finer - with smaller openings - like the 1x1 wire mesh seen here www.bwire.com -

    Is that something that you think may be able to work as the main structure under everything else? You have used much larger openings - but I am not sure what the pros and cons of this would be.

    That cattle or hog panel is available at any farm supply store such as Tractor Supply or Rural King.

  12. How did you attach the tarp to the panels? Zipties?
     
  13. Do you know the dimensions on the panels? Did you use the 6'x16' ?
