We had cut a deal with one of the neighbors up there earlier this spring and the guy built a nice deer blind on the point of a hill on our property. He uses it during bow season and we use it during firearms season. Toolman and I were very impressed with the blind and want to build one down here on the farm and another one up north at the cabin.
Being cheap we have kept our eyes and ear open and have come up with over half the material we need already. My latest coup was getting enough 2X6s to the floor bracing. A buddy at work told me he had some scrap lumber the wanted to get rid of. I never asked the size or how much I just told him I would come and get it. He said no, he would bring it into work. The next week he backed his truck up to mine and we tossed a bunch of treated 2X6s in the bed of my truck.
There are a ton of useful items out there that people are getting rid of all the time. It takes little effort to put the word out that you need something. The surprising thing is that it will show up sooner than you think.
Oh, and I need a few pieces of metal roofing for the two blinds, if you have some to get rid of just give me a call….
