    I've looked at many forts and this is by far the best one for me! I want to make it, but I don't heave a 4 by 4 cardboard box. Is there a good substitute for this?

    Do you know those tri-folds? You can use those to make the walls, then cover it with a blanket for a roof

    it depends on how big the person is if they are small you can use a smaller box maybe you can try to put a couple boxes together for a bigger person.
