Hunting blind, or, Back to the drawing board.
« on: May 30, 2011, 11:56:05 AM »

 High winds and not enough cross bracing took out my delux hunting blind.
I used hurricane straps to hold the roof on but only cross braced the stilts with 1x2s.
Of course I thought "mabe I should use 2x4s..."

That's for sure WDH. Your sign is so small it is hard to see. ;D
