Lets get some pics. I want to build a blind in my back pasture. I'm thinking 8'X8" with a 7" ceiling. Not sure of distance off the ground. My thought is a 4" deck with 6' of enclosed space. I have a seasonal creek and have put a seasonal duck pond on it. I'm thinking 4' off the ground? Plan "B" is to put it on the ridge and do a ground level blind by the pond. I really like the idea of being dry and warm while watching the meadow. I'm looking for ideas. I am taking apart a 28' camp trailer and saving the siding. Camo paint and ???

An 8'x8' will be huge lol. I would say 4'x6' would be plenty for two people and lawn chairs. However, with your dimensions you could put in a stove

8' square is because lumber is cut at 8'. Two 8'X4' sheets of decking on 8' 2X6's would do the floor. I have 12' metal roofing. A quick frame on the posts, roofing up, throw some wheat straw on the with chicken wire to hold it down and the roof is done and camo'ed. 4' deck and enclose the back half. I have windows from the trailer. I have a couple of solar panels and a marine battery. Plant some turnips and oats in the meadow and I will have pig and deer hunting. I'm almost 70. In a few years my hunting is going to be close to home. Best to prepare now. I already have a camp cot, sleeping bag and 12 volt blanket. I could be quite comfortable.
