We need a new build section devoted to Pallet homes guys!

I just uploaded a ton of new pics of our 2 cabins being built with pallets and other recycled material.

in the late 90's we had access to a bunch of 7 1/2 foot long oak pallets..hard as a rock. We had an old foundation on the property so we dug it out and had it filled with cement and then I built a frame for a shed from a sill plate with a pallet upright on top and a top board..had to screw them all together as nails were impossible it was so hard and bouncy..I used regular 2x4's for roof and framing doors and I sided it with board and batten and put a shingled roof on, made the doors out of board and batten for the double doors and put a salvaged door with window on the s entrance..partitioned it off in center to make 2 rooms and used a salvaged inside door between..it is really nice and has stood up to a lot of weather.
