    I,ve found I like a 5' spread at bottom better than 4' . Gives a little more throw over shoot hole of your grassing and a little more maneuvering room inside blind. I also use the 30" top opening but using switch grass for bushing along top extend it up to about 5" tall . I think blind wall height actually measures 52" but stands 48" vertical.Its easy to shoot around and peak thru openings between grass bundles. Also gives enough room for dog to not be underfoot inside blind. Love shooting from the a frames as compared to layouts

    It would make a good chicken coop in the off season too.

    Looks good. I built and hunted out of a bunch or 4x8's and think the next one will be 5x10.

    Started using tan stretch cord through eye let screws spaced out every 8 to 10 inches on top and I middle to quickly brush or touch up rather than using tire wire with screws.

    6 foot at bottoms, 20 inches up top an 10 foot long. We still need to skin em with plywood but they should get the job done.

    I use the camo bungees available at Walmart with blk. metal hooks on ends. Just lay grass against wall and hook to cattle panel wire. usually do a top row and 3/4 down row as we leave our 16 ftr. a frame up all season. Switch grass is secured in bundles with bailing twine and it works good. Takes 24 bungees to do blind.
