STEP 1: Building the deer blind floor

Floor-frame—deer-stand

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame for the 6×6 deer stand. As you can see in the diagram, you need to cut the joists from 2×6 lumber. Lay the components on a level surface and align the edges flush. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to assemble the frame. Make sure the corners are square. Place the joists every 16″ on center, as shown in the diagram.

Floor-sheets

Fit the 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood sheets to the floor frame and align the edges flush. Leave no gaps between the sheets and secure them into place, every 8″ along the joists, using 1 5/8 screws. Invest in pressure treated plywood if you want your project to last longer.

STEP 2: Building the wall frames for the deer blind

The next step of the project is to build the wall frames for the deer blind. Start with the back wall and cut the 2×4 components at the right dimensions and drill pilot holes through the plates. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the plates to the studs. Make sure the corners are square. As you can see in the plans, you need to frame a window to the wall frames so you can have a good view, and the door opening for an easy access inside.

Front-wall-frame

Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall frame. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to assemble everything together tightly.

Side-wall-frame

Build the side wall frames for the deer stand, using the same techniques described above. Notice the large windows on the sides of the stand, so you have a 360 degree view on the field. You can make modifications to suit your needs.

Fit the side wall frames to the floor and plumb them with a spirit level. Align the edges flush with the floor, drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor.

Next, lay the front and back wall frames into place, making sure the edges are aligned and the corners are square. Lock the adjacent walls together with 3 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square.

STEP 3: Building the gable shed roof

STEP 4: Attaching the wall panels to the deer stand

Center the purlins to the roof, leaving equal overhangs to both sides, and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the purlins into place tightly.
