now I can bring the kids with or just sleep in there the night before so i don't scare em away

Thats dedication. I found the older I get the more I sleep in and have coffee. I always have much better luck in the evenings at my place. But I guess since I dont go in the mornings who knows. Looks pretty cool to me. What's in store for the windows? Pro tip, I like to hang some camo net on the inside. It cuts down on glare and really helps them to not see your shadow moving around

Camo netting or black paint the inside. Then, you don’t have to wear camo. You can wear black to blend in. Still may require orange for laws though. I know a few people who have done this.

That is going to look nice. You can pull it out weeks before the season opens for them to get used to. And in the off season it can become the kids play house and a fun place to 'camp out' on summer evenings.  

Maybe used carpet on the floor to cut down on noise??? Fiberglass insulation or styrofoam is cheap for the walls and roof. Make things a bit more comfortable while drinking coffee on a crisp morning.

wouldn't want to be hunting in a big wind storm.

Fill the bin with sand etc and it wouldn't blow over

Wouldnt want to roll away though.

Will also be tucked into a grove at the edge with one side poking out to the field

I had a redneck dream of doing that with a Genie lift. Always thought it would be fun to drive down the back side of a fence row, lift it up, poke through the other side and hunt. Sure wind might make you seasick and hard to shoot but it would be a sweet deer stand.
