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