That's similar to the type of blind I may be building on my place but yours is bigger. But I plan on running some 10/2 Underground feeder wire out to it with a small panel and then I can run an elect milk house heater in it and maybe some dimmable low level lighting.

Had one of these in there:

After a while I had my coat and gloves off, just had the bibs on. Felt comfortable


yep, Big Buddy way to go. Set it up for a 20# tank and don't forget to add a little ventilation or keep a window cracked.

:shock: the way my luck has been lately, I would build that overlooking my creek and the next week they would run an interstate through it.

Looks good! I would recommend the Mr. Heater buddy heater for your blind. You can run them on a 20 pound cylinder or the individual bottles. They have an automatic shut off of hit/knocked over, also have a shut off if the carbon monoxide levels get too high. We use them to heat our outfitter tents and hunting blinds during rifle season here in Colorado.

No dish yet but something to shoot for, just finished insulating the ceiling and laying in the boards. I'm so excited for season!
