Default Big bow blind build

With the weather I figured that it would be a good time to get this done. It is 6' 3" wide, 8' deep, a bit over 7' tall. The blind sits about 2' up on the skids.
Saturday ended up getting the floor in, door prepped, and side windows framed.
Sundays plan is the finish framing everything and start skinning it.

I'm building a blind of similar size - 8ft wide x 7ft deep. It plan to put it up on 12' pillars. It's almost done. Hoping to get it deployed in the next couple weeks.

What size are your bow windows and what is the distance from floor to bottom of windows?

I'll have three 28x10 windows on the front and one 12x12 on each side towards the front of the blind.
I'll work on it tomorrow, I'll grab the heights then.

Next up paint, then a TPO roof cap. Will insulate with 1/2 foam board, add windows, metal trim all around.
Hopefully ready for the first cool day in the hill country.

Busted butt and got this thing done and in the field. I'll never build another stand that isn't on skids, unloading this 1000lb stand was a breeze.



View from the stand.
