    The floor of the blind is 16 feet high.
    The four legs are 6 by 6 each.
    You can stand inside it because its 7 feet high.
    There are two soft comfortable chairs inside.
    The entire blind is covered in black tar paper with camouflage cloth around it.
    The roof has shingles on it.
    The floor has a rug.
    Three Plexiglass windows with hinge on each.
    He has a fiberglas ladder going up to it.
    The door has a pad lock on it.
    He said he can take a nap in it during a fall hot afternoon, while waiting for the evening deer hunt.

      If you look at photo number three he has a Tinks bottle and a heater can ready to go.

        Looks pretty comfy Gary. It could still use drywall, furnace, A/C, toilet and a 70" flat screen TV. If he would install a corn feeder under the blind, he could just drop big rocks on their head and save ammo.

          He made the blind high inside so he can stand up and shoot his compound bow without hitting the roof.

              Quite a few years back, somebody compiled "Texas Deer Stands" photos.
              One was a Volkswagen ...up in a tree!
              Another was a set of photos showing a 20 or 30 foot travel trailer being set up on top of some uprights about 15 or 20 feet high.
              Completed, it was fully functional and had a deck in front.
              An electrician friend of mine built a box blind beside a pump jack. He had lights, heater and coffee maker.
              Box blinds are fun!

                I like how it is tucked away in the trees. I hate how many guys go buy one of those redneck box blinds and stick it up on the edge of a field out in the open.

                  The one property I hunt has blinds that are made out of feed bins that were cut in half, some are elevated on a platform and others are just on the ground.

                    I once had a smaller version of that, a one-seater that was 4'wide and 4'deep but only about 5' high.
                    I prefer swivel armchairs in box blinds.

                      OT, great point I agree with you. Every box blind I see is on a field and they stand out like a sore thumb. The trees do break up a box blind.

                        My cousin and I made a giant box blind on the ground for turkeys . The cedar lumber we got from a Carpenter who torn it off of a house. The corrugated roof we got from trash dump in the woods. Even the office chairs with wheels we found at the city curb on trash day. The chairs moved easy of the plywood floor. Four people could sit inside it comfortable. It was in a corner of a field and we shot a bunch of Tom turkeys from it.

                          The only draw back when some slob hunters or kids shoot rounds in to it!

                          Have one almost like that with 30-40 .22Lr holes in it found shell casings on the ground, the fiberglass roof panels were a mess!! We think Kids Snuck on the Lease? Real Nice Box Blind

                            Tree, It's a shame Florida hunters would waste bullets because their jealous of your blind.
                            A few New Jersey slob hunters would rather steal tree stands and trail cameras. They need a crane to steal this blind. LOL

                                I'd prefer a short barreled 12 ga for oomph! They are hard to carry concealed. I went 9mm because the ammo is the cheapest. As a former NYer I wanted...

                                Your mention of the .380/9mm is what drew my attention.
                                I meant no offense to you or anyone else.
                                I just don't think the .380 or the 9mm aren't...
