I can tell you right now, sitting in a 4' deep blind sucks a proverbial fat ****.

By the time you position your chair to shoot, you've banged it against the back wall, then in surprise, you kick the front wall and hit your head on the window frame all in one motion. No thank you. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

I sit for long periods, and want room to stretch out.

Make it 6x8 floor, and then use corrugated or R-panel for a roof over plywood and felt.

Sure, it costs more to build, but you'll be a whole lot more comfortable in the long run.

Plywood doors are crap, unless they have a rigid frame, and a good skeleton to stiffen the door itself. First humid day it'll warp beyond salvation, and you have built a really big mouse and coon house.

Same goes for windows.

I've built my own, and it's a pain in the butt. While I am quite capable, I will not be doing it again. Deerview products are a lot of value for windows that function as they should in a hunting blind. I've not found any commercial windows that do what I want.
