The blind is awesome. You have a lot of windows and your going to have a problem with rain, especially a blowing rain. My bow blind had 3 deerview windows and I was very happy for some time till a storm hit. The front 1/3 of my bind interior was wet for a month. When I got them I thought I was water/weather proofing my blind but any water that hits that glass runs straight down and will get past that furry seal around the windows and soak your wall, floor, carpet ect. I solved my water problems with the dv deluxe model windows.

Unfortunately I already had the openings framed before I realized they carried the deluxe model. I donít have a good picture but I did use the rain handlers from Home Depot above the windows. I put a drip ledge flashing that the window closes on top of that will help kick the water out. Iíve done this on my other stands and it helps a lot. I get very little water inside during a hard rain. Hereís the best pic I have.
