Default Old Fence Picket Blind

With the prices of lumber being so high I decided to try my hand at an old fence picket blind. I already had the base up at the property that a pop up blind would usually be put up a month before season. I built the sides at the house so it was basically just mount 4 sides to the base and then put a roof on when I went to the land. Today I finally decided to get it finished, turned out pretty good and all thatís left is putting some kind of barrier or something to keep bugs from getting in so easy. Material wise Iím only a 100 into it and the tin roof was the most expensive part.



This is a pop that was only 1 year old.

This is the finished produce that replaced old pop up

Great project, and old fence picket camo just fits perfect into that blind location. Good luck.

Very nice.. good job.
I wouldn't paint it, or nothing.
I'd spray it with a high quality, high UV, sealer.
