Fun with forts and Engineering pitfalls

On these rainy, cold days we all start to get a little stir crazy… Am I wrong?  Along with social media, we’ve also given up t.v. for the kiddo this lent.  We always try to monitor screen time, but it’s just so tempting when you’ve been inside all day!

This tutorial redeemed me.  I’m not sure I’m ready to actually begin a career as a structural engineer… but I can build a darn good fort now-a-days!!!
