Default Start of the 2 story blind....Here we go....

I finished digging the footings and forming the new blind today. It's about the same size as the Alamo but with two windows on the angled corners. I squared off the back where the door will be. I plan on carrying the shape all the way up to the roof. The lower windows will be Deerview 12" X 12" but I don't know if I can get away with that size window and shoot down at an angle. I'm thinking that I may have to go with the 12" X 24" vertical on top.

I'll post pics as I make progress

How tall will the second story be? Only need the 24 inch windows if you get above 8 foot or so.. But if you can stand and shoot, you wont need them. 10x18 will work fine.. Cant wait to see this build..

I'm thinking that the second story floor height will be about 6.5 feet tall. Overall maybe 12 or 13 feet.

I have no idea yet. Someone on TBH named the Alamo. I named the Shack. Maybe someone will come up with a good name.

I may be calling you. I have some 8" X 8" cedar beams that someone gave me. I'm thinking I'm going to use them across the top plate between the first and second story and mount the second floor deck onto it. Maybe leave the ends sticking out of the stone a little bit on each end for effect?

I'm going to frame the door in some good old 8" X 8" oak oilfield skids too. I'm sure I'll need help standing those things up.

Thanks for the offer Coach.

Is the bottom floor gonna have sleeping arrangements, or 4wheeler parking? Or is it just a means to hold up the 2nd floor?
