Default Big Octagon Build

Needed to get busy building a blind for my lease and wanted to build something that will last and be big enough for two people. All I lack is the skin and a metal roof but this is what I got so far. Each panel is 36" wide. Windows will be 24"x10".

Well I finally put the skin on. I'll start painting over the next few days. I'll do my cutouts once I get my Windows.

Great build.. I like it a lot..
Just an idea... If it's setting on the ground why not just leave the roof flat and elevate the front 3-5 inches higher than the back.. It doesn't take much.

It's going on an 8' tower
I think I'm just going to spend a couple bucks on some tin and call it a day

Built one a couple years ago, (a tad smaller than yours) and you will enjoy hunting out of it. Nice build.
