Dale, I'm seeing a "super sized" theme with all of your projects!

This stuff is awesome!

Dale - what are the overall box dimensions? Is it big enough for 2 bowhunters? Can you shoot a bow through those windows or is it for guns only?

Taxi....Go big, or go to oklahoma.:) That's what Legdog always tells me.

Seems like the outside dimensions were like 69"X84" or so, it's plenty big for 2 bow hunters to shoot thru those vertical windows. Which by the way, still don't have shoot thru over them.

I bought some sweet plexi windows and tracks with the help of another TBHer (who can take credit here if he'd like)......and I'm gonna try to get them installed this weekend. That part of the project has been "re-worked" several times.

I carpeted the floor, 18" up the walls, and the ceiling (thanks Chicken), and have some big comfy office chairs in there too! (thank you Jered)

I'm gonna build a "center console" type deal too. For storage/cup holders/binoc holder......

sweet looking blind, about how much does it cost to build something like that?

I'll let ya know when it's done.....:(

Seriously though, I got most of the steel for the tower here at work, my dad had the steel for the windows, I had a bunch of the lumber & screws, and the company that makes chimney caps for us "donated" the roof, so it'd be real hard to know how much it would cost. Got the carpet for nothing too, as well as the chairs, and I got a swingin deal on the plexi windows, thank you again anonymous TBHers.

Is that your camp house or your blind? J/K

Nice work as is the rest of what you build looks like.

I like "go big or go to OK."

That is a great job. I have a little smaller version with 2 jury style chairs in it. They swivel and lean back and are leather like. Put a rolling base on them so they would move around.

I'd love to try and knock this design off.

My only problem is, it would have to be hauled into Mexico by my Dad (who is the only one with a license to pull the tandem axel trailer in Mex)

I bet it could be built so it could be transported in panels in the back of a truck.

Great looking blind Dale. It looks big enough to be a Honeymoon suite. :)

I swear I'm gonna buy a REAL wire feed welder an an O2 bottle and build some shat myself.
I burned up my cheap Chicago wire feed.
I almost have a torch rig, minus an o2 bottle.

LOL. Yah, gotta get real if ya wanna build real stuff like Dales dose. :D ;)b

I'm on hold at the present due to rain this morning :(. Been building a 10' steel tower with steps, and a box with a metal frame that bolts to it for assembly in the field before standing it up.

Throwback!

That ol blind is still settin in that same spot. Been hundreds of critters kilt out of it. May get another year or two out of it, but I'm afraid it is rotting away. The problem with double walled blinds is when any moisture gets in, it doesn't dry out, it just rots faster.

would you mind explaining how you raised it? I built one with my buddy and we've got to raise it this weekend, and it's too heavy to lift with manpower.. I figured UTV to pull it up. I've watched some videos on how people do it but hell if you have a better way...

Like my golf game, that blind is rotting away due to lack of use, and insufficient maintenance.
