About the plans.
The plans are in both Standard and Metric dimensions.
Measure, cut, drill and assemble. The play fort is designed to be self-supporting, which means that there are no posts to concrete into the ground. This allows the fort to be moved around. The complete frame is fixed together with bolts, so as well as being very strong, the fort can also be dismantled. The building of this project is broken down into two stages. FIRSTLY: the cutting and drilling of all the timber pieces, where there is a detailed drawing of every piece of timber used in the frame showing where to drill every hole and SECONDLY: putting together the structure, with step-by-step instructions.
NOTE: These plans are for a kid's fort. It does however, require an experienced adult DIYer to build the fort. A kid may help.

Once the members have been cut and all the holes drilled, simply line up the holes in one member with the holes in another member (according to directions), place the bolts in the holes and the fort will take shape automatically.
