Looking to build a few tree stands with roofs if someone has plans, pictures, tips, what ever would help. Hunting both deep woods and edge of a field. Keep in mind I'm not a carpenter so tree stands for dummy's would be great.
Built mine a couple years ago as a place to get in out of the rain and cold when needed. Two nice bucks have been taken from it so far. I built it in 5 panels in the driveway and hauled up the mountain and put it back together. It's designed so slide and swivel with the movement of the trees.....will tear them apart if you don't. Be careful, there are a bunch around here I would never climb up in.
Chris, I designed it myself after looking at lots here on Berry Mt. Ron, It's 4x7 inside...I have 2 swivel chairs in there to accommodate my kids that like to tag along.
Also...I used 1/2 inch gal lags to attach 4/4 angle pieces to each tree. The hole for the lag is a slot about 3 inches long and allows the platform to slide back and forth when the wind blows the trees. The upright posts in front have one bolt all the way through that allows the platform to rock with the wind too. The "box" is attached only to the 4x4 platform.
