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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

How to build a deer blind roof
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.
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.
Use 3/4″ plywood for the side walls. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and get the job done with a saw.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fit the plywood blinds to the sides of the deer blind, as well.
Fit the blinds to the front of the hunting stand.
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.
