Budget blind build and install

I lost my lease at the end of last season and my old stand was pushed over (by bigfoot apparently). When i got on my new lease i went on a search for a new blind and quickly realized that even used ones are crazy expensive. I started researching into building my own, and even though this was a considerably cheaper option, i was still hoping to find a more cost friendly option. After asking questions on here, someone mentioned using a shipping create. There is a company called Road Runner moving and storage that sells big creates for $55, so i went for it. This thing was 7'x5'x7' (LxWxH) and crazy heavy. Long story short i had old plexy glass laying around and my uncle had 5-6 sheets of roofing metal in his back yard, so all i needed were legs, support beams, and misc hardware. After tinkering with it here and there for a solid month, it was ready for the trip to the land. I went ahead and built the complete base at home to save time (legs, floor, cross beams). Had three other guys with me and we got the walls and roof together in about an hour. All in all i have around $250 in material into this thing. Its not 100% sealed up but nothing that some silicon and foam cant fix. I still plan to paint it next time i go up there, but very happy with the way it turned out....
