Here is a picture of a tower blind sitting in the middle of our bottoms that are in food plot corn, beans and CP33 quail ground and CRP filterstrip ...and deer crossings out the wazoo ..we are woods hunters ..up close in da face ..so it has not had much hunting or many deer taken by it ...we never even finished up the roof or sides ..it is 14' to the floor and is 4'X6' ....but...it just commands too much awesome territory to not use it on special occasions ..like grandkids ...daughter in laws ...old men like me when it's nasty out etc.
SOooooo ...now there is a 19 step set of stairs with handrails on both sides where the ladder once was
Now there is a 4'X4' platform landing at the top of the steps
Now there are 18" wings added to each short side making the finished size of the "clubhouse" 6'X6'
Now there is a roof 7'X8' that is simply 2'X4" as purlins sitting on 2'X6" beams ..1"X4" strips are what the 30# felt paper and barn corregated roofing are screwed to
The exterior is exterior plywood (siding type with decorative grooves) painted a brown/green
NOW you get to vote!! since the whole deal is low tech ..the "windows" for this year are going to simply be cutting out openings in the plywood from which to look out and to hinge the cutout in some manner to keep out kritters and mother nature
the question(s) is window closure hinge from the top? ...hinge from the side? ..open inward? ..open outward? ..large opening like 24X36 or two 24X18? ...any ideas that have worked for you ?? I'm all ears
Boys be kind ...even with the platform already built I still have a bunch of $$ in this project ..maybe down the road real windows,insulation etc could have funding found but now I'm tapped out ..
