Junk cars, old sofas, anything old and unused can be made into a bunker. ;)

The place were doing it may actually be at the bottom of a shill, like along it, so you can utilize the hill on one side :) which means no framing or anything for a treehouse type place

Well on our field we built, we just used scrap lumber we obtained from various sources. Look on craigslist for free wood, go to contruction sites. Places throw away tons of usable wood every day! We built our entire field free. on the front page there are a couple pics of some of what we have done:

Try not to use anything that can retain water... Idk where you live but in florida if you use tires and it rains they are going to be infested with mosquitos. Try using sand bags!

if you have the resourses, try fencing off the designated playing area, otherwise some people tend to try and take the super long way arround to be "sneaky"... (They Get Lost)

That is exactly the right situation for us haha and what we were planning. This place is near, (but not to close) to basically an UPROAR of construction and there is tonsss of wood everywhere and me and a friend with carpentry experience. Your field you built is quite impressive and hopefully is what ors will look like!

You should also have a disposal/ recycling place for the eviornmental regulations. I have been to some places where there are more paint cases than bunkers.

Ya it took the 5 of us 2 years to get it developed like it is and it changes constantly. One thing i would reccomend is to build wedges and anything you can freestanding it helps save wood. We built a house in the center of the field using 4x4s and 1'x8' 1/2 inch particle board. Just remember no matter the oddball cuts and what not in it, you can most likely use it. We have a couple cactus shaped bunkers lol.

At a field I play at, there are some lockers from an old school. It would probably be really hard to find lockers, but if you do, and you lay them out right, you can make them into a really snake.

Try using pallets, or even for fun stack boxes that your cases of paint came in on-top of each-other, those make cool bunkers.

what you do is make a village,like little houses,out of play wood.its resonably cheap and you wont belive how much fun it is going swat on a group of kids hunkerd up in a small building.they have one at my local feild and its what gets all the kids there trust me!another good thing to do would be rent (or if you know some one that has one even better) a front loader or mini excavater and dig trinches or just make hills and mounts of dirt.give me a while il be back with more sugestons man lol.

You can go to home depot or low's and by scrap wood for like $1. If you have any wood laying aaround your house use that and digging out bunkers is always fun.
