Default Mobile Deer Condo

Been working on it on and off for a while and I can see the light and the end of the tunnel.
8x6
Base is framed out with 2x4s
Rest of the frame is 2x2s
LP Smart siding
Rain drip rails
Deer view widows
Fold down bed for the kiddos
Solid shooting rest
Shelves for storage
LED lights
Solar Panel to charge Interstate Battery
Weatherstation
Cigarette lighter
2 Usb outlets
Voltage meter
12v coffee maker
12v hot box (oven)
I'm sure I'm missing something
And it's going to be elevated!

I love it, but I would have a problem if I built one like this...my wife would want to go with me to the stand all the time. right now the cold ***** rock on top of a metal bucket keeps her out of my open air hunting "blind".

Very nice stand I hope you and your children enjoy the great outdoors for many years. I still have fond memories of my Mom and Dad taking me and sitting in our old wood blinds, of course none were nearly this nice.

That looks awesome. I like the idea of a bed especially for hunting hogs. The hogs on my land don't come out until its very late..or early depending on how you look at it. I hunt in open air tree stands. One thing I like is that I can hear every bush shake, every twig break and leaf crunch as the deer/hog comes out of the brush. Being inside a blind, does it reduce your hearing?
