Clubhouse - Fort - Castle - No Adults Allowed!!

Since I was a kid a long long time ago I always had a fascination with building fortes and club houses.  Whether it was out of pillows or cardboard i used whatever was at my disposal.  Now that I have more resources available than just pillows and blankets I decided it was an opportune moment in my life to build a real one for my kids.

I have never built a structure in my life but I started out with 4 4x4 by 16' redwood posts and several bags of quikrete and I was launched past the point of no return.  I scoured the internet and got my general ideas laid out in my head much of the design work I owe to Barbara Butler.  I was consumed for the next several months to building the club house of my dreams.  I have never been so happy in my life building this project.

Specs:

Structure Base is 5' x 5'
Total Height 17' Appox
Wood - All Redwood
Tubular Slide
Stainless Steel Firepole
Rock Climbing Wall on the back of the structure
Tire Swing
2 Regular Swings
On secret escape door in the back.

Here are the pictures of my work.

    Hello, I thought making blueprints was in my skill set but have not figured out a way to do it. If anyone out there has that skill I would love to collaborate with them to offer it up to the community.

    What a great fort, I'm sure the kids loved it! I would definitely love blueprints if you can put them together.

    Thanks,

    I don't have plans yet since I did this without them. But I will figure out how to make them.

    Give me a couple of months. :)

    Question 11 months ago

    I just started building my version with two bridges. How high is the bridge (from ground to bottom of 2x6?) and how tall is the tube slide? Nice work btw!
