I'd like to see a super close-up pic of how you hinged the windows if you don't mind please. And I'm curious as to how quiet they will be when opened/closed.

This is probably one of the most impressive blinds I've seen built! You've done a great job!

I think this blind and the converted water reservoir/pit blind are the two best home made blinds I have seen on this site. Great idea, and great craftsmanship.

What size panels did you use? and how much did you cut off the end to make the blind that tall?

They are 16' full length.Then ripped one length ways and welded it to a full panel to make one 16'x6'.The base is 4'x6'

I weld 3 nuts together and the rod I weld to the stand is welded to the nut it passes through.The rod welded to the window passes through the other end and I drill out the nuts to give a little room and they don't make any noise.The last stand I built I used weldable door hinges.This is 3/8 rod and nuts but 1/4 would work.

I use it by a big stack of hay but I think it will work by itself were the deer are used to seeing hay.
