Default Bow box blind

I am about to start on a box blind to be used more for bow hunting than rifle but can be used for both. It will be big enough for at least 2 people and camera gear or three people. I am making the frame from 1" square tubing and looking at Deerview windows perhaps. But I need suggestions on what to use to skin it out. Looking at thin sheet metal or aluminum siding like on a trailer. Any ideas?

Depends on your goals (weight, sound (careful with thin metals "popping" in wind), insulation) but you really have a lot of options from corrugated metal, to flat metal to R panel. You could still use a wood sheeting too, even thin ones on the walls..

I have 10 joints of tubing on order. I'll be building another octagon for bow hunting. I really like the current blind and the room it has. Plenty for 2 with 28" sides.

I considered metal but wonder how hot it would be early over smart siding
