Beginning of the second year at Foresthold, my first attempt at an above-ground fortress. The main living area, farms, workshops, etc. are actually underground, but the ground level will serve as a massive barracks, as well as allow safe farming of above-ground plants, and a safe, endless water supply.
A small, two-story wooden building near the center of the fortress serves as a barracks, as well as the entrance into the underground portion of the fortress.
The second floor has beds, a weapon rack, and an ammo stockpile. The southern wall is a row of fortifications, to allow marks-dwarves to fire upon intruders.
Just to the south of the keep is the trade depot, which will probably be replaced by one built from Jet as soon as the human traders leave.
Just behind the keep are a set of cages used to house young animals, as well as those without breeding partners, to keep path-finding time to a minimum, while allowing me to keep and raise the animals.
The stairs on the side are serving as temporary scaffolding, until the roof is completed, so the rest of the beds can be installed. - timmeh
