Default A different kind of blind

So I wanted to build a blind that would fit on a standard tower frame (4x4) but that I can shoot my longbow out of. Here is the first model. This one is going to be used on the ground. The next one is going to have an angled front. And will be more complex. Got the main shell built on this one. Will add a house hollow core door. Next is caulking and then painting inside and out. I know it looks funny but it is functional.

What is the sheathing? Will the lifted one have vertical or horizontal windows?

The sheeting is cloraplast plastic sheets like political signs.
It is going to have a vertical window more than likely.

Did you use screws with orange washers, or nails, to secure the coroplast sheets to the wood frame?

Got every seam caulked and used sheet rock corners on the 4 wall corners. Going to prime and hopefully paint it on Sunday. Will post some more pictures then.
Also bought a hollow core door from the habitat store for 8 bucks. Going to cut it down to size and install it as well.

So I have completed the blind. I painted the plastic with Zinser 123 primer. It sticks to everything I was told. Then rolled with exterior latex paint. The door was added and I will put it on a pallet to get it of the ground. I learned a lot working with the cloraplast sheets and so now I am ready to tackle the elevated model. This one is going to the ranch tomorrow.
