I don't mean to be a critic but I would hate to see all that work go to waste when that thing is far out of level and you need to build some sort of over hang on there, and did you use any treated lumber it does'nt look like the floor joist are.

thanks for the input. Actually 100% of the lumber is treated. And you are right about the over hang, actually at that point we didnt have the roof on. But we have a 8 in over hang all the way around the stand now and have a sloping roof, 8 feet in the front and 7 feet in the back.

I've built a few of these with a few friends. If you can, find some roof rubber membrane, asphalt-type roofing or even metal roofing or decking to get a cap on that thing. You'd be amazed how fast that water will wear on those flat horizontal surfaces....even with that pitch you have.

It does look out of plumb and level, but it's the way the pic was taken across the incline. If you tilt your head to match the image...it comes out pretty close. Nice work with your ice shanty on stilts.

Good luck.

roadhunter, i have a stand I built for my Dad (79) has heater which turns to a stove, a roof w/ windows and can seat 4 comfortable. It has vinyl siding in yellow color with 15 steps to the house itself. When you is freezing and heading ofr the car, My 79 year old dad is sitting in campo shorts and a tshirt having a cup of coffee and fried egss and bacon. Who said deer hunting should be painful. Oh and I don't drag deer, I ride up on em' in my UTV and load in the back! If they go over the ,mountain I go after them w/ a electric winch cable and rope!
