Roof is on and the girls are out of paint. They got the inside mostly done before they ran out. Waiting on a door and some windows to trim out the inside.

Hope you have a small crane to move it or plan on hunting the back yard stand. i build a bow stand 7 x 6 last year and had to disassemble the walls to move it. looks great

I built to take the walls and roof apart if I have to but I'm hoping that with a little help I can just pull the top off the base and with a little help me and a couple guys can load it.

I'm in for the disassembly phase of the thread. Looks great. Starting my build as soon as I get the metal base from my metal fab guy. Contemplating building and transport strategy for sure.

I cannot guarantee this post will be informative and/or funny to everyone.

Looks good! Don't know how much you take to the stand, but if I didn't have a landing at the door it would be a couple of trips up and down the ladder to get my stuff in, so I didn't fall off with my hands full.

It should have a porch no doubt. I just wasn't in the mood to build it the day I built my stairs. Can add easily later. Also pockets are feeling empty so at this point I may just get it huntable. I'm seriously thinking insulation, inside carpet on the walls and the porch might be a project for later.

Nice work. What height do your windows start at? Do you plan to shoot sitting or standing? Trying to figure this out on a build of my own.

It's funny to see the clothes change from pants/t-shirts, to jackets, to shorts/tanktops all in a 20 day span, gotta love Texas weather!!

What windows are you using?

These were windows that someone else ordered and never picked. I'd have to measure next time I go to the lease but I think they're 10"w x28"h

My wife took them. And her stupid phone deleted them. I'll take some more next time I'm at the lease.
