    Built with scraps and left over stuff laying around. Not the best looking but it works.

    Wish I had better pictures. First is a banks blind that we built a platform to sit on. Second we built from scraps leftover after I built my house.

    I have two I built A few that are 4 ft deep by 6 ft long wich is nice and a 4ft deep by 4ft wide. Then I bought two 5 panel octagon blinds which are nice and one 4ft wide by 4 ft deep blind . Haven’t put them all up yet. Built a 4ft deep by 6 ft wide one for a friend also . The older we get the more I love my blinds and after there there 6 months to a year the deer don’t care about them at all.The ones I bought so far which are more cheap cost are the Terrain blind and the bonner blinds but you have to build a floor or platform unless you just want to pin it to the ground with no floor.

    Thought i had pics on phone, but cant find them.
    Ive got a 8x8x8. 8 ft off the ground. Plexi windows, framed, hinged from the top. 2 vertical plexi windows, hinged on the sides. Not 100% done with it yet, but it will be fully insulated with a propane wall mount heater when done.

    If you’re gonna seal it tight to keep wasps out, be sure to add a couple of vents or it will sweat like crazy.

    I have 2 built one bare bone cheap as possible. Only used things from around the farm. Put metal on the sides with nothing under it. It is loud if you bump into it. Have 34 dollars in it and labor. The other did the exact opposite very nice plexiglass windows advantec floor matching tin on outside rug on floor few hundred in it. The thing i feel is very important if not very high. Is that the back is closed and half the sides, and i paint the inside from windows up black. When looking in from the outside all you see is a black hole. I feel 4x6 is the correct size. You get to big and set on one end you can't see the closest 25 yards to the other end. The last 2 i built are 5 feet to the bottom of floor on skids. Move them around with tractor and pallet forks. Easier to build in the shop than on site. One farm is leased, and you will at some point find a better spot.

    A shooting house is on my agenda this year. I removed a deck from my house this past summer and replaced with a covered porch, I have a pile of treated lumber left over to frame and floor it with. I plan on a 4' x 6' resting on 6"x 6" posts. I'm figuring on using OSB plywood for the sides wrapped with roll roofing and topped with a shingle roof. Can't wait to get started after deer season is over.

    I’m going to have to keep my eye on this thread. Going to start on one for next year in the bottoms on our small fields. Tell me what the purpose is of elevating the blind more than like 2-3 ft? I understand for a tree stand because of scent, but don’t quite understand why you would elevate a permanent box blind. I’m ready to learn....
