The castle of my 4-year-old, the pictures
Here it is, made of matching boxes from a washer and a dryer, covered with $2 worth of craft paper, painted on by the resident, with a sliding roof over the 'courtyard' in the corner. There is one external door on the leftmost face; from that box another door leads to the courtyard, and the other box can only be entered from an internal door through the courtyard. Low on the very left edge you can just make out the padlock he put on the door. Right above that is the mailbox, which opens with a drawbridge--pull the rope in front and it opens, pull the rope in back and it draws closed. Tools required: tape, box cutter, string. Total cost: 2 bucks.
