I've seen them on the internet before. Just be very very diligent when inspecting it. Its probably had a hard life

I have done it before , works quite well I used 3 sections put a floor and sides and a roof , I'd do it again in a second if I had more scaffolding

Scaffolding work great for treestand we put up 2 last year try to find 5 foot braces Good thing about them is they are very safe a lot safer than home made stands
I'd put up more of them but it's expensive if you have to buy them but if you get them for free go for it there great I would send some pics of our stands but not sure how

Good luck

I had a friend that did that he was a stone mason and shot a lot of deer from it . we had to tie all the joints to cut down on the noise.
