We're in the process of prefabing 4 stands in my buddies warehouse. so far we have the 4 bases done and the walls built for one of them. Their going to be 8x6 and 6.5 high to accomodate the tallest one of us. Another friend who works for a building supply company gave us a bunch of demo house windows to use. The windows are a nice feature but I'm thinking of using some plexiglass instead so I can customize them to fit my shooting style. I've kind of got an idea of how to make them but would be open to suggestions. Also suggestions on how to get these bases up 14ft in the air in wooded areas.

Maybe use climbers if you have trees close to tie off Rope and pullings?

Hi, got a question. since you have your shoot house done, can you shoot a compound bow out of it? I am getting ready to build one very much like yours. By the way you done an awsome job on yours. I would like to be able to shoot my bow from it also. been putting alot of thought into the windows and have several ideas but was wondering if your windows were big enough?
