looks well thought out. Just need some plywood and maybe a couple concrete spacers in case it is un-even.

I've got the plywood in the back of the truck ready to roll out there. Should be a nice setup once I get it put up. I'll post pics.

Yeah Iím betting that was rank.

No carpet at all in any of mine for that EXACT reason.

Iíve got a couple of new bases being built (got lazy and didnít do anything myself this time). Looking at a new lease. Hope I decide to do it or Iím gonna have two bases sitting around with no place to set em up.

TxAg and I put up 4 Krivoman's this past weekend. 3 went on new 8x8 platforms with elevator brackets and 1 went on an old pop up platform. I went with the 4 window blinds with vents and bow hooks and am really pleased with them.

Looks great, throwin' darts. DamonJ and I put 3 up a few weeks ago with similar set ups, except we went a bit higher on the platforms. They turned out awesome!

Yes the elevators make building one a breeze. They are pricey but worth it in my opinion. Also if you ever want to raise your platform higher or move it to another location they make it really easy to remove the 4x4 legs.

That's awesome. I am going to build something very similar with the octagon out of metal.

So what is the difference in doors? Is one the deluxe and the other the classic?





I am going to the hunters extravaganza in SA this weekend. If I don't find something as good in quality and price there (highly unlikely) I will be ordering one on Monday morning.

Top blind was maybe one of the first blinds he made like 10 years ago

Bottom picture is the classic door

Send a PM to Krivoman, I'm sure he can send you a picture of the deluxe door setup
