This step by step woodworking project is about free 4×6 shooting house plans. I have designed this small but sturdy shooting house so you can have a nice shelter during the hunting season. You can make a lot of adjustments to my design, so it suits your needs. You can even build an elevated stand and then build the house, so you have a better view on the field. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

How to build a 4×6 deer blind
The first step of the project is to build the floor frame. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber, after taking accurate measurements. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components.
Continue the project by attaching the 3/4″ plywood sheet to the floor frame. Align the edges and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the joists.
Build the side wall frames for the deer box from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Frame the window opening, as well. You can adjust the size of the opening to suit your needs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.
Frame the front wall for the shooting house from 2×4 lumber, as well. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.
Frame the back wall for the deer blind in the same manner described above.
Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shooting house. Plumb the walls with a spirit level and make sure the edges are flush. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Moreover, lock the adjacent walls together tightly with 3 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes.
You need to take a look over PART 2 of the deer blind plans, where I show you how to build the roof and the front door.
I have designed this sturdy 4×6 deer box so you can shelter yourself during the hunting season. You can make adjustments to the size and to the shape of the shooting house to suit your needs.
