Assembly on site would probably make it a little easier for you.

The winds have no effect on these blinds they are pretty heavy and sit low to the ground. If you needed to tie off some big rocks or cinderblocks to the blind. I hunt around Sheffield and havent had a problem with them blowing over. We built ours at the lease, we just tied the panels together and then put the carpet on. We waited till we were at the location of the blind to put on the roof. I moved leases this yr and we just took the roof off, and cut the ties holding the circle shape of the blind. Put it on a trailor flat and moved them, they worked perfect.

I've been checking this thread out and I'm planning to try theses blinds out this year!! I've used a very similar technique but the roof was flat in mine and I love the idea of the PVC piping to make a dome and as a matter of fact I went to home depote today to check out prices I think I'm gunna go with 5ft concrete fixture wiring (not sure what its actually called) and then by some 20 foot pipeing and cut it from there hopefully ill have a roof roughly 6.5 feet or so. Only difference other then that is since the wire comes in rolls I'm gunna use tpost to keep it in place

I have always used Astroturf for the walls and roof, and had to deal with deterioration every few years.

I wonder how this would work for the walls? Are the panels flexible enough to make the curve?

I seen a chicken coup made out of PVC pipe like that to get a domed shape, or an arch for the chicken coup. Nice design!

I built it, and it's out...too early to tell about durability. Search "Cattle panel coroplast blind" for the thread and pics, here in the DIY.

I brought this TTT for a friend of mine the other day.

On the snake question, as with any ground blind, there are always the possibility of snakes. Built a couple of these a few years ago and they are solid blinds. Thinking of building another, but I have thought of possibly putting it on an elevated platform.
