Default Homemade layout blind

After reading Ryan's post I've decided to throw in a post about a project that I've been fiddling with lately.The last two months I've been thinking about making a layout blind for the upcoming season.Three weeks ago I went to Menard's and boughtsome P.V.C. and roughed one together in an hour or so. It's a pretty simple plan that so far has cost only$30-40. I'll post a couple of pictures, and if anyone wants any details let me know. I look forward to field testing thisgoose hunting in a couple weeks. I left one side of the camo off to show the framework...

Picture #2, sorry they're a little blurry. The side without the camo has a stop in the tee, and when closed the other side will lay on top of it. I wanted a greenish camo pattern for early on hunting hay fields, but I plan on adding straps somehow to attach whatever it is I need. Both of the middle braces come off so it's easy to lug around.

So, what do you put in place to have yourself sitting at a 30-45 degree angle, so not to be flat on your back?
You'll cover the rest of the frame with similar material, too?
