Default Plans and directions for tower blind pleasE?

Hey everyone. Havent posted on here in a little while. My grandpa and I are going up to our property in New York tuesday morning. I really really want to build a Tower stand/blind. If anybody has the time would you please send me plans/directions for building one of these. I would like it to be at least 10 feet off the ground and fit at least 2 people in it. Keep in mind I have about a $200 budget.

Thanks guys!

Well I built one a couple years ago .
Use 6 pressure treated 4x4s 2x8 floor. with 1/2 inch ply wood .
Used 2x4 walls with obs and installed a few plexyglass windows .
Its 10 feet off the ground to the floor and 6 by 8 feet and 6 to 8 foot cieling .
It did cost me abought $500. to biuld though .
I could put 4 hunters in it comfortably . althiugh it will never happen .
Hard to biuld for $200. unless you have some materials laying around ..
I ,ll try to post a pic ..

scroll down to my post on my new hunting blind( rolling hunting blind) . those containers work great for a blind ,check in your area factories to see who uses them. most places in my area give them away. just build your platform and bolt it on top.

How much do pressure treated 4x4s cost? I might have to use trees for that part...

4x4 are $12 for 14 footers , I got some yesterday at Menard's. I use Shadow hunters elavators for my blinds very easy to put up. No digging or cement. I doubt if $200 will get a blind but if you look around there are pieces of wood that you could use.
Here is link with instuctions.

Just get the elavators not the whole blind
