Yes. Carpet on the floor and about 2' up the walls, and wood from there up. Insulated walls and ceiling, and led lighting.

My wife will be out of town next week, so I'm gonna try to knock out some work on the blind.

I'm gonna use 3/4" toungue and groove OSB subfloor for the floor. What would be the best thing to paint the bottom of it with before I put it in? The only time it will see direct moisture is if I pull it through a water puddle or something.....but I'd like it sealed up good either way.

I rolled two coats of Kilz Complete on the bottom before I put it down. It's an oil based, indoor/outdoor, sealer/primer. I'll do the inside before the carpet goes down.

Havnt even looked at the blind for a while until the last week. I got the window holes cut out " much to the chagrin of my neighbors", and the outer windows built, hung, and painted.

That's all I've got for now. I'm waiting for some free material from a buddy of mine to start the inside finish-out.

I bought a sheet of lexan for the windows, and I've ordered the extruded aluminum tracks for them to slide in. Have to get walls and paint up 1st. Then the lexan windows, trim, carpet, lights, gas line, and stabilizer jacks on the back.

Inside dimensions are 6' across, 10'2" long, 73 high at the top of the side walls, and I think 83 1/4" at the highest point in the middle.

Hopefully I'll get the free stuff to sheath the inside this weekend, if not I'll have to tie up as many loose ends as possible, and maybe work on stabilizer jacks for the back.

I was gonna build some kind of drop down stabilizer/outrigger legs for the back. Initialy I thought I'd use fold down trailer tongue jacks.....but they have too much play to suit me, so I thought I'd build something. Then I remembered the jacks my old pop-up camper had before my coward ex roomate stole it.

I searched around a bit for something similar, and just ordered these!

http://www.easternmarine.com/atwood-...s-2-pack-82298

I'll probably need a set for the front too, but the tongue jack will due for now.

Havnt updated in a while, because I havn't had time to work consistently. I put plywood around the bottom 2' where the carpet will go up the walls. And I lined te rest of the inside with some masonite type stuff because my friend got it for free. Tonight I put 1X3 pine around the perimeter even with the top of the windows. This is what the lexan windows will but up against when up/closed.

Those are for 12 volt outlets. It'll just have a deep cycle battery with a 12v solar maintainer.

I put a shelf out of 1X12 and 1X3 along the back wall above the windows the other day. And I built the faux cedar beam for the ceiling last night. It will house some LED lights.

All you need now is a bed and a portable deer cooler on the small pull behind trailer which hooks up behind this trailer. By the time season gets in you can get everything to the woods in just one trip. Where does the camera mount at?

You put it over the top when you added the "gas line" and the "faux cedar beam for the LED ceiling lights."
