DIY Project – Outdoor Fort




From Rich,

Made this almost entirely as outlined in the plan – the only thing I changed was the spacing between the balusters (3.5 inches) and I made a ramp rather than steps. All told, I ran almost $1,000 CAD after tax- that includes pavers, the slide, pressure treated boards.

Took 2 days, start to finish, largely one person. Pictures are of the almost complete version (still needs some extra balusters) One tip for the floor boards – the spacing is slightly off – didn’t make too much of a difference, but the whole project needs to be 1 inch narrower to get half inch spacing between the deck boards.



From Plans:

Difficulty Level: easy

Time Required: 2 days

Total Cost: $1,000 CAD
