The Fabulous Fort

My children had a friend over for the weekend. They decided they should turn my daughters room into a fort. So, her into bedroom is basically covered in blankets and sheets with furniture all topsy turvy. They have the play room, the reading room, the sleeping room, etc...It's complicated to get to her closet, and her dresser, even her bed, but she likes it.
My mind jumps to the verse where I am told that Jesus is preparing a place for me in heaven and I wonder about that sometimes. Does that mean he speaks and then there's a mansion? Or, He is actually building a mansion, with a hammer and nails?  He is a Carpenter, after all.  Or is it all just a figure of speech and I really am not going to have a mansion at all? What kind of place is this?
Whatever is being prepared for me in the Heavenly places, I'm confident it will be very good. Say That Again, Lord Jesus, You have gone to prepare a place for me!

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
