4×6 Shooting House Roof Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 4×6 shooting house roof plans. This is PART 2 of the shooting house project, where I show you how to build the lean to roof. Moreover, I show you how to build the door for the front of the small deer blind. You should also check out my other hunting blind projects. 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 roof for a 4×6 deer blind

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the deer blind. Mark the cut lines on the 2×6 beams and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with attention, using sandpaper.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the deer blind. Align the edges flush and place the rafters every 16″ on center. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws, to lock them into place tightly.

Front wall - Siding

Front wall – Siding

Attach the 1/2″ plywood or 3/4″ plywood sheets to the front wall of the shooting house. Cut out door opening and the window opening, using the information shown in the diagram. Make sure you don’t damage the panel as you will use it when assembling the door. Use 6d nails to secure the sheets into place, every 8″ along the framing.

Tall side wall - Siding

Fit the plywood sheets to the tall side wall, using the information from the diagram. Make the cuts so you can cover the window openings. Use hinges to secure the blinds into place. Use 6d nails to secure the sheets into place, every 8″ along the framing.

Small side wall - Siding

Fit tar paper to the roof of the deer blind. Afterwards, install asphalt shingles to seal the roof.

Building the door

Building the door

Build the door frame from 2×2 lumber. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them together tightly. Make sure the corners are square and fit the panel to the frame. Use 2″ nails to secure the panel into place tightly.

Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface tightly. Apply a few coats of paint to protect the components from the elements and to make it blend in with the landscape.
