Do you mind if I copy your design for a stand on my property? I like it. :) One question, What is the highth of the floor?

Now that's a blind you can spend the whole day in. Just like home.

She's 8ft to the bottom of the floor....10ft long and 6ft wide ....then 6'2''sloped to 5'10"....I made the house it's self 6ftx6ft inside dimensions and the frame work I made from 2"x2'' to save money....framing and PT floor joist and bracing are all I had to buy ...everything else was construction dumpster diving...well the bug screen curtains... I bought material.....the windows will be sliders using aluminum Jmolding

All insulation is cardboard in the walls and the floor will have 3"Styrofoam board insulation....covered by cardboard...The center "deck door....is 2 sides of a freezer box...filled will more heavy card board and wrapped in wood look contact vinyl :D

Badgie,
Better be careful or the assessor will raise your taxes based on your "additions". If you ever feel the need to practice your blind building skills, you'd be welcome to build a prototype or two in my woods. I'll field test em and tell you what needs improvements (looks like no improvements needed to me). You
are an inspiration to us all. Thanks for coming back to the forum.

Nicely done Badgie! I was thinking of usinf a handicap portajohn on a raised deck, but the price of one of those things is unreal. They wanted $600. just for the shell! I like your method better. (a mother in law suite, with a comanding view, Near everything, easy walking distance to local points of instrest, and pets are ok with a lead deposit!) :)
