4×6 Shooting House Plans

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.
