This is a raised fort that was built by Dad and me a long time ago. It has a trick door and a secret entrance. The ramp was originally designed to raise and lower, but the mechanism was 100 cranks for 1 inch of raise. That would be 12,000 cranks to fully raise it! The fort is raised 10 feet off the ground. Any pictures I find of it being built I'll post. The secret door looks like a wall, (The wall on the right side of the door) but when pushed, it opens. It locks from inside with a deadbolt.

We would sleep in here with friends over, and Dad would come out and start scratching the walls and banging on the windows. Good times.
It also was the center of a lot of Airsoft battles, until I built the Airsoft course Hunter's Run in the woods. Most of the attack and defend battles were boring, because the defenders would lock themselves in the fort, and nothing could be done to get to them. The floor is covered in BBs.
As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.

I love it! I never had anything this fancy. We had a little playhouse, and lots of forts built out of plywood, but nothing like this. :D
Neat Instructable...hey, how did you do the Flash video?...did you make the video from scratch or using a tool...thanks, Jack
Just hover your mouse over "Submit" (On the orange banner above, under the ad banner) then hit "New Slideshow" It's just like making Instructables, all you do is add pictures and a description.
Oops, when I said "pull the string to open the door" I meant window.
Cool thanks
Hey dude, that's a pretty sick fort. It looks awesome. Your dog looks tired. :-O Nice house dude, this Slideshow is one of the best I've seen. +1 rating.
