Fort Nacho: A Survival Guide

Solid construction is of utmost importance--the elements of an apartment can be brutal: unpredictable weather patterns, dust buffalo and drafty windows. It's wild out there.

Choose supplies carefully. The winter is long.

VOILA INTRUDER!

This is a pretty awesome little clubhouse/nest/camp. I'd replace the cigarettes with junk food for mine though, LOL! I'm sure the plastic guns are a necessity.

Made my own fort on an uneventful Saturday night. We played records, drank wine and hung out with our dog Lola. Of course it's her new favorite hang out spot.... :)
