Default Any ideas for interior design of deer blind?

I'm in the planning phase of building my first box blind. After my last thread I have decided to go with a 5x8. What are some of your favorite features that you have added to your blind or features that came with it if you purchased it?

I had built a 6x8 with a bunk running across the front half. If I went out by myself I'd just sleep in the blind so I didn't have to get up, get ready, drive out, walk to the blind, etc.

A shelf like others have said. I put 3-4 notches in the shelf to hold your rifles up with out sliding around. Hooks up high for stuff. Carpet for quietness. Wire across the top of windows for burlap camo curtains. It slides back and forth easy. Conversion van seats. Check my threads for pictures. You can get them at junk yards.

I built mine 8x8 so I would have plenty of room. Gun/bow rack, Mr. Buddy Heater, comfy chair, Yeti Roadie, table for coffee and all the crap I carry and of course the pic, and might as well put in a magazine rack.

For gun blinds I leave a san**** in each stand
My Windows also Have the wire at top and bottom of the Windows to hang strips of burlap so they don't blow.
I have some new little lights that look like light switches that stick to a wall for early and late. battery operated fan ain't a bad idea.

Do you leave it set up all year (have you had it that long), or do you take it down and store it?
