Digging the staircase Casey
We bought a piece of property that came with a bunch of junk. Well we had a staircase as well. And it got used on a new blind build at the in-laws farm.

Yep, when you have "strippers stairs" and a "lighting rod" as part of your deer stand...............epic build!

Well, a number of does were struck down by youth hunters out of the blind this season. Couldnt be happier with it!

Recently, I finally got around to rigging the solar setup. Went with one 100 watt panel and a mppt controller. I really wanted to mount the panel on the roof but decided against it due to the safety concern of any future maintenance.



Also decided to stick with everything 12v.



The ceiling fan is going to be really nice on those hot summer night hog killings. Even comes with a 3 year/ 36,000 mile warranty.




The wife says she really likes the under shelf mood lighting.



Only thing left in the plans is some outside lights.

Some of the items used-

That is absurd, excessive, and over built. Love it!

Well played!

What did the electrical system cost you, not counting lights and fans? What type of batteries you using?

Great looking blind. You and your family will enjoy that for a long time. You will also like adding solar power when you get that added.
