The Blanket McMansion
This contest was prescient for me as I had been thinking about building a pvc blanket fort for a long time. Especially in winter, when you want to sit up and play a board game or something but it's just too cold to get out from under the blankets for any reason.
I was first introduced to the notion of building things out of pvc
a few years back. After I realized what an easy and inexpensive construction material it is, I've had it in mind to try it out. I first tried making a ladder which didn't work and I gave up for a while. But this contest got me thinking about completing this second pvc construction.
I wanted a fort that had a pointy roof like a house and also would sit on the floor around the outside of the bed rather than on top of it.
This fort was designed to fit around the outside edge of a Queen sized bed. Ours is 60" x 80" and the outer dimensions of the fort are around 64" x 84" or thereabouts.
