You're over here doing all this and here I am freaking out about how crappy of a wood blind I am going to build this year if I don't buy a fiberglass one...

I HATE wood. I can weld all day, is easier to fill in metal than make up for a short cut board!

Yep im terrible with wood also. Only wood on this one will be 3/4 plywood floor. Couldn't really come up with a better material to seal up the bottom.

No you didn't! I made one of my hay ring blind and used the same rolled tin. I didn't use enough screws and it poped and squeaked when you moved around in it until I put a lot more screws in it. I have made 3 of them and skinned them out differently. I used coroplast 4x8 sheets on my last one. I think that's the way to go.
Nice Job!

Sorry for the delay in posting haven't had time to work on it much. I'm pretty much done with construction. My 5 year old said we needed some camo so we did some rattle can work on it. Getting the insulation sprayed tomorrow and putting it out on Saturday.

I'll post pics after spraying and in the field.
