It'd be neat if you could find some old insulation somewhere and insulate the thing!

Years ago I knew a guy who built something like this, but he cut a hole in the floor in the corner of it and somehow underneath the stand put a 5 gal bucket that attached to the outside floor of the bottom of his stand. Well, on the inside, he had an old toilet lid/seat and built a little stool about 3 ft off the floor and well you know... the rest is history! hahaha

tator -- i used 3/4 plywood for the floor. The walls are all built with 2" x 2" skinned with 3/8" plywood. But part of my design, which will be more evident when i take it apart, is that i overlapped the plywood. left an overlap at the bottom to catch the base, and an overlap on the sides to catch the front and back wall. the framing for the roof, actually sits down inside the walls. I wanted everything to go smooth when out in the woods for assembly. So with some forethought, everything on mine should line right back up and be square when assembled.

that's pretty clever, how you have the windows opening on that string like that... never thought of doing something like that. Here in MO you can have a sealed up house but those doggone wasps will still get in... those orange lady bug things are horrible here too! not this past year so much, but the past 3-4 years HORRIBLE! they swarm your house in the thousands if not millions. Anyone else have trouble with them stinking (literally) bugs????
