Thread: Bank Holiday Monday project

  1. #1

    Bank Holiday Monday project

    Nearly 2 years ago I built a frame (well designed and got amate to weld it) for a shooting tower. The original location fell through andthen I never really found the time to build it, until this weekend!!
    Got it all in the trailer and then took it to the chickenfarm.

    The hens passed it for quality approval!! Quick discussionand agreement with the farmer about locations and away we went.

    Steel frame and wooden floor along with some roof offcutsfrom work.

    Plywood to line it and roofing felt seemed quickest andcheapest route to waterproof it. Brother in law helped with this bit and that’swhy the felt is cock eyed!!!

    Fantastic panoramic views to 3 sides. Dry location ifweather not playing ball and elevation means much better chance of a shot whatwith all of the new fences around now. Should also help with the tricky foxesthat I am convinced spot me 1st. (especially once they get used tothe tower)

    So all I need now is electric, heater, TV and A FOX!!!

    Maybe paint the timber matt green and plant a russian vine at each post anchor point for rapid natural camouflage/softening of the structure?
