A step by step instruction on building your very own fort for your backyard.
Build your own fort:
Some of us are not as creative or skilled enough to design our own forts. This instructional document is to help the novice or semi-experienced carpenter to create their own fort for their children or even pets.
This fort was specifically designed in a certain manner. The picture on the front cover is the actual fort that was built for this plan. Some modifications were made to simplify this plan for the novice.
These instructions are a guide to build a six foot square fort that is roughly ten feet tall. It has a ladder leading into a two foot porch area and a four by six foot housing area. The housing area is four feet from the ground and the roof is four feet from the deck. The underground area is four feet from ground.

This fort is roughly 3x3x3. It has a small ramp and porch area for your beloved friends to climb. It stands only 10 inches from the ground. With basic pine, it would only cost around sixty dollars, including hardware.

Build a 8×8 playhouse with an optional porch area and flower boxes. The deck is 6” off the ground and the roof is roughly 10 feet tall. This is a guidebook to construct this fort with diagrams and instructions.
Cost: The price for the materials to build this project would be dependent upon what material that you purchase. Some lumber is more expensive than others. However, the original structure was created with standard pine so the general cost would be around $600, which would include hardware.
Time: I am not going to waste your time to estimate how long it will take you to assemble this fort. Every person has a different speed and it depends on your tools and expertise, obviously. As well as how much free time that is available to you.
Theoretically, it could be completed in one day. Also theoretically, it could take you a week. If you hire some of the contractors that I’ve heard complained about, it could take them a whole year.
