Pirate ship fort: A carpenter in Jacksonville built the most amazing fort, a walk-in pirate ship. Just because you are all grown up doesn't mean that you can't have a built backyard fort. Consider the pod, or the shed-turned-office. These are adult forts. They have enormous potential for whimsy and fun.

Bunk bed fort: This fort is so simple, and so easy. It doesn't involve hiring a carpenter. A bunk bed plus a simple curtain = a fort.

Play tent for kids: With the help of some long curtains, the corner of a living room (or any room, really) could become a magical fort. All you need for this project is a few boards, nails, wall anchors, curtain panels, and fabric. One afternoon's work could provide hours, and hours, and hours of fun for kids. Or for yourself.
