Default Long term deer blind

We have been working on this blind for a while and have finally finished. It's 10X5 and I milled the cedar board out of a tree and ran it through a planer. All materials were recycled. The only thing that cost me anything was the steps for $120.

That's perfect! I'm wanting to do one almost just like yours! My wife would really love it if it only cost me as much as yours did!

Heck of a build, should get a lot of use out of it for many years to come. Should be very comfortable to hunt out of.

Those were considered but we wanted taller windows. Also we were concerned about rain drip from that type of window onto the wood. We might go back and get plexiglass cut to size and have then in channels to slide side to side or swing inside. Either way we will keep the tin shutters for maximum protection in the elements.

They can pretty much make the Windows any size you want. Just put some drip molding above them and you won't get any water in them.

I'll never use home brew windows of any type after having real windows.
