Tree Fort Journal - Designing and Building a Tree Fort

This is the recollective of the newly-built tree fort in our back yard.

There are screen shots of the design process and photos of the progress. I used AutoCAD R12 - a pretty old program but did the job splendidly.

If you want to see all the photos and drawings in one place go here.

Photo of initial site
Here is a photo the site prior to starting. The old structure was rotting badly, as was the adjacent fence. Growing out of the structure is a double-trunked white birch tree.
