5 Fantastic DIY Forts!

1) WILD HUTS!

As the name suggests, the founders of 100 Wild Huts have challenged themselves to create 100 wilderness structures over an extended period of time. While the site offers numerous choices when it comes to basic survival construction, Wild Hut 19 stands out because as the creators note, “in order to push ourselves we decided to build a mathematically complex geodesic dome… from wobbly twigs. ” A huge part of the design process is actually being out in the elements in which “tall trees had been knocked down by the wind in an elemental game of woodland dominos.”

2) TREE-LESS-HOUSE

This fabulous design by Robert Potokar and Janez Breznik “is a wooden play structure that is elevated without requiring nearby trees to support its weight.” Like an AT-AT frozen in mid stride, the tall structure provides a fabulous vantage point from which kids can survey what will one day all be theirs. “The design was guided by the goal of creating interesting and different spatial experiences for children that inspire new forms of play.”

3) FLAT PACK TREE HOUSE

Imagine constructing a tree house without nails, screws, nuts, bolts, or any other hardware for that matter. Designed by Rogier Martens & Sam van Veluw is a play space for kids that doesn’t harm the environment. “It is a tree friendly tree house and easy to build using straps and lashings. The whole package consists of 7 panels, 4 straps and lashings and a manual. The construction of the tree house takes about 30 to 45 minutes.”
