    Damn, where you been hiding. I may know of a boy that would sell one that all it needs is legs and sides. I can find out, unless you're hell bent on building one.

    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, give it Narcan.

    The general foot print is 4x8. They came up with the best use of building materials as it comes.

    4x8 is nice too. We have 2 office chairs in each one.

    There is enough room 2 grown men and a kid can sit in each one and move around with ease.

    They have enough head room you can stand up in them and stretch, or not bump your head while getting situated.

    You can slide in very easily even if deer are out in the food plot already.

    They are basically self contained so you can sit them on 4 telephone poles up at 24' or yo can set them at 13' which is where the bulk of the last ones we have set are. That is high enough, so we have discovered.

    When we originally built them we put plexi glass windows in them with pull strings so you could pull up the glass with one hand.

    Eventually we did away with the plexi glass. It just ran up the over all bill and served very little to the over all function of the stand!

    That what I'm looking for. My little girl has got to where she loves going. And of course she gets a nap in EVERYTIME so I want something with some size and comfort.

    My 13 yr and I framed one of these in about six hours. Carpentry is not my strong point, but this was simple.

    Do yourself and favor and buy a set of “elevator” brackets to secure the legs to the stand. About $80 but 4x4 legs slide right in and the brackets easily attach to your base. Buy a few 2x4’s to brace them and you are good to go.

    To echo from above, 4x8 is a standard size sheet of plywood flooring and is very roomy for 2 adults in office chairs. 4x4 is adequate for a one man stand. Put door on back so you can slide in and out of the stand without blowing out the whole field. We build our wall frames with 2x2’s that we screw together. Buy good quality treated lumber and paint any plywood you use. I’ll send you a pic if I can fine one.

    But then you could not call it a TROPHY deer stand. It would be just a deer stand. Our stand is a house, with a window cracked bout 1". We kill deer

    Tee, I asked my buddy about his. He would sell it but he wants what he has in it and that price is outrageous. Its not very big either.

    Surely just the frame of a 4x5x6 box isnt 350 bucks worth of lumber.

    6x6 is a waste of material

    That is why we went with 4x8.

    Depends on what lumber they used, but I could see 350$.

    Treated Plywood is not cheap.

    There is no plywood. It is only the frame, no sides, floor, anything. I thought it was a bit high but then again I don't buy lumber often.
