Building the Hunting Blind Roof

Jack 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 4×6 deer blind roof plans. This is PART 2 of the deer blind project, where I show you how to build the roof and the dack door. Make sure you pay attention to the instructions and make adjustments if necessary. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a deer blind roof

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the deer blinds. Mark the cut lines on the beams and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the deer stand and place them every 16″ on center. Fit a 2×6 beam to one side of the deer stand. Drill pilot holes and insert screws so u can lock the beam and the rafters to the top plates.

Side walls

Side walls

Use 3/4″ plywood for the side walls. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and get the job done with a saw.

Front and back wall panels

Front and back wall panels

Cut the front and back walls for the deer blind from 3/4″ plywood using the pattern described in the diagram. Mark the cut lines and then get the job done with a saw.

Fitting the exterior walls

Fitting the exterior walls

Fit the wall panels to the exterior of the deer blind and then secure them into place with 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the framing.

Fitting the roof shee

Fitting the roof sheet

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheet to the top of the deer stand. Center the sheet to the framing and then insert 1 5/8″ screws into the rafters, so you can lock the plywood panel into place.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

Cover the roof of the deer blind with tar paper and then install asphalt shingles. Fit nice drip edges to the four edges of the roof.

Building the door

Building the door

Build the door frame from 2×2 lumber. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to build the door frame. Then attach the panel that you have cut out in the previous steps. Align the edges flush and insert 1 5/8″ screws.

Fitting the door

Fitting the door

Fit the door to the opening and lock it into place with hinges. Install a latch to lock the door into place tightly. Fit the panel to the window opening. Use hinges to secure it into place.

Remember that you need to apply a few coats of protective paint to the shelter, so you both make it low key and protect the components from decay. Take a look over PART 1 of the 4×6 deer blind project, where I show you how to build the floor and the wall frames.
