Finally! We've often wondered if the extravagant "outdoor living room" concept could be done on a non-extravagant budget, or at least look nice but not as fussy as the slick magazine spreads on the topic. Portland homeowners Richard Rolfe and Stephen Rutledge have accomplished just that with what they call their "fort," cobbled together from local salvage.
This is the first fort we've seen with its own chandelier, which is not wired and purely decorative. We love the patchwork but still pulled-together space.
