Default Panel Blind Questions

I have been researching ideas and it seems pretty simple and reasonable. Definitely cheaper than buying a blind. However, I do have some questions.

1. Can 1 person build it by himself? Once I bend the cattle panel into a half moon, will it hold it's shape until I get the 2d one bent and can wire them together?

2. Lots of options for the outside. Mine will be more permanent sitting on a pipeline. Do I need to go with landscape fabric only or should I put a tarp or other more waterproof material over the landscape fabric?

I built some out of concrete wire. Easy.

When you make the half moon drive posts on each side, this will keep it standing.


I use heavy silt fence fabric and it will last a long time. I donít wrap with plastic or tarp as they tend to deteriorate pretty quick

I built my feed pen by myself. Lay them end to end on the ground and wire one end together. Stand them up and make a circle to wire the other end together. I did 8 panels this way 2 at a time.
