Default Cardboard Clubhouse



I was working on my rainwater setup, when I had to remove the cardboard box that was around the 275 gallon plastic container.

Instead of recycling it, why not build a fort for the Little Girl.

Of course, it quickly spiraled out of hand. I built a two-story cardboard clubhouse, INCLUDING a cardboard ladder AND a cardboard slide.

There is a really simple 2x4 lumber frame under the slide, and the roof is clear plastic, but EVERYTHING else is cardboard.

That is awesome! And with the amount of rain we've been getting you shouldn't have to worry about that. I do know the fun of boxes as a kid. The parent's refrigerator box was such great fun, we had it for years in the basement as a playhouse.

We just ordered a dishwasher. I'll have to keep the box from that.

Wait a minute.... It's German-made - that means Euro-style minimal packaging!

A friend of mine just ordered a new clothes washer and dryer. She will probably make an awesome fort from that!

Very cool! Really something to consider the next time I order something that comes in a HUGE box.
