    I started my pallet shed build today. Last fall I put in the patio stones for a base. The pallets sit on PT 4 x 4’s and are separated by 2×4-8’s.

    Today was building walls. Next step will be top plates, door frame and roof.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    Will have to follow this along. Just today seen a picture of one that was used for goats. Came out pretty nice

    What are you going to use the shed for? Are the pallets strictly going to act as the framing or be exposed in or outside?

    @smallerstick good use of the pallets,
    What will you put over them as a finished product, and what about the inside

    Looking forward to seeing this build

    Good use of those presumably free pallets. Going to use some to frome the roof too?

    Peter,
    Very interesting, looking forward to see what you have in store for the pallet shed.

    Pallets are just the structure. It will have pine board and batten outside and unfinished inside. I will be using it for lumber storage as well as a utility garden shed.

    I will be using some pallets for the roof, as well.

    Have seen pallets used for many types of buidings, but debated over doing it. Really interested in your final say so when this is done

    I’ve seen this done on pinterest and it can turn out pretty nice.

    Keep us updated!

    This is really cool! Its going to be neat to see how you move forward from the bare pallets.

    My only comment so far is about the lack of precision in the pallets. There is maybe 1/2″ variation in the height all around. The top plates will not be pretty but with any luck at all will be level enough for a roof.
    It’s only 8 x 12 so what can go wrong? LOL

    Total investment so far is $115.

    Great idea, especially if you got the pallets for free.

    Peter,
    So your roof will have a very slight pitch to it? LOL
    Can’t buy a 8 x 12 shed for anywhere near that.

    interesting, so with a pallet shed will you skin the sides of it?

    I’m planning a simple truss in about the centre and a clerestory style roof using the remaining pallets.

    Sides will be pine board and batten. That will be the biggest expense, I’m sure.

    nice my kiln will just have the ply as the side and i’ll end up just painting it. Where did you end up getting so many pallets?

    I’ve been gathering them all winter. There are a couple of local merchants who have been very cooperative …. and glad to have someone take the used pallets away for them. Some are in grim condition but those can be dismantled and reused to repair others.

    Yeah, I was going to say that I’ve never found pallets to be the exact same dimensions, but for $115 so far you are doing pretty good.

    Interesting and as you point out an inexpensive endeavor. As with the others, looking forward to your progress and final product.
