We started with the basic walls we made this past Spring for our kidding pen.
We then covered the top and sides with a heavy tarp. We had the tarp tied down in this pic. Several weeks later, we had heavy wind gusts (in excess of 50mph) rip most of the tarp off. We used more pieces of scrap lumber to nail it down along the side edges. It has stood well for the past several storms.
This shelter is roughly 16 x 20 and was very easy to build. After we figured up the materials needed to build it, the cost was less then 40 dollars. Over half that was the cost of the green tarp.
This design would make an excellent green house, potting shed, chicken house, etc. If you reinforced the bottom frame, it could easily be placed on wheels/skids and used as a portable livestock shelter.
I have to say this pallet frame building would also make a great temporary hunting camp or emergency shelter. I was very surprised how warm it was in the shelter once we had the tarp and wall plastic secure. I was much more comfortable in it then in our big 3 season camping tent. We will definitely continue to build other shed buildings using this design.
I am really inspired by the construction creativity you can do with wood pallets. I've got all kinds of ideas starting to bubble up in my head...
Keep them pallets coming baby, keep them coming!
