I appreciate all the kind words guys. Hopefully, if the weather cooperates I'll get it to the lease this weekend and all set up.

Got it out the lease and all set up. I even wired up my fans, swampcooler and battery with a solar panel!

The center piece in the window is a vent I made out of screen and plywood to let the blind breath a little and still keep the bugs out. I was a last min idea so I didn't get it painted.

Again, great work there. I went to Home Depot and got some of that lattice track. It works great. Thanks for the idea. I would charge rent to sit in there!

You win the DIY blind build for the year! That's awesome and I'm jealous of your roof. I have the same design but it's not nearly as good as yours

You are the man! I can't get my hexigon blinds to fit together and you made a round one that is really sweet. Wish I had your skill. Good luck hunting.

Nice build! Any estimate for what you paid for materials. I recently had a few custom fiberglass blind made for $1,250 each. They are 5'deep x 7'wide x 6'6" tall on 4' stands. I wonder how the cost of the round compares?
