So I bought a piece of tile left over from a water treatment plant. It is 5.5 feet across and 7 feet tall.

A buddy of mine had it and had cut horizontal shooting windows for shotgun turkey hunting. I bought it to make a warm shooting house for my young kids to be able to hunt late season here in Ohio.

Anyway here is what it looked like when I picked it up.




It is super heavy duty with 1/4 inch thick side walls.

I didn't like the horizontal windows so I re-attached the cut out pieces with strips of plastic from a 55 gallon drum.


And then re-cut the windows vertically.


I used a old fiberglass satellite dish for a roof. It was like 8 feet across but I cut it down and test fit it.


Here is what was left of the dish.


I separated the dish and siliconed the seams and put new galvanized bolts in each flange. I put a piece of screen over the hole in the middle to keep the bees out and used a 6" PVC cap as a vent. I then trimmed the dish down and painted it.

I was having trouble loading the pics so I am trying a smaller file size.

I framed in a door opening and made up a super heavy duty door with treated lumber with a window in the door.



I did the same thing for the windows and built hinged windows.


I then blacked everything out.


Before I painted it camo I put screen over the openings to hold the camo pattern and then put plexi-glass over the screen on the inside.


After finishing it I must say it turned out much better than I ever thought it would. It is virtually indestructible. Hope you enjoyed:)

Awesome job brother. Hope your kids get a monster late season buck out of it.
