Here is the latest construction on our land.  The funny thing is the guy who sit here is the one taken all the pictures and supervising

Looks like it's going to be a nice blind!  Do you have any plans at all for this?  I've been wanting to make one for a while now but can never find plans that I like.
 
Thanks!

Forgot to post pics of my stand. I have been waiting 2 yrs for this to get built. It might not get completely finished but as long as they get the roof on I'll be in business!

Swandog I also took pics and supervised. Figured it would get done alot faster if I stayed out of the way[:D] I did feed and "water" the crew though! LOl

Thanks everyone, even though it's hard work in some ways it is the best part (meeting up with the hunting crew in the off season).  BTW, that is me on the roof in the pics.  That's how we check for stability...put the biggest guy on top and see if it holds (just kidding).
 
BH21 - Unfortunately, there are no plans...just a basic concept and then we go from there.   I'll ask our head designer for the measurements and list of material and let you know.
 
DoeEyed- Stand looks good and don't think the cook and drink supplier isn't a big part of the crew.
 
Goose- Just call we work for beer.
That's why they call it hunting and not getting

Great looking stands.  Room for a cot in there?

My wife would accuse me of never wanting to come home if I build something like that. Are those brand spanking new windows too???

BH21 -
 
You might want to prefab the walls and roof on the ground. We use a heavy plastic sheet that is almost as thick as those roll up snow sleds. It works really well though. I can build things a whole lot faster on the ground. Make sure that you tie it down well w/ cables or dig deep. We can't dig holes because of all the rock.

Everything is new. It hopefully will be there for generations to come.
