To make a 10′ x 10′ shelter you will need 9 pallets (the standard ones that are 48″ x 40″), 3 cattle panels , 9 t-posts and a large tarp that is about 20 x 15 ft, depending on how far down the back of the shelter you want to go (We purchased this 16’x20′ heavy duty tarp).

Between the riding mower and all the other stuff we discovered we'd need to keep up with the yard, we quickly lost half of the 2 car garage to yard equipment. We priced storage sheds, but ones that would be big enough to hold the mowers and be tall enough to keep me from cracking my head inside cost way too much; over $2300 for a 10'x10' shed at a local big box home improvement store. We decided to build, but even low end building materials were going to add up quickly. Pallet Shed Building 101. My Yorkshire Allotment: The Pallet shed build.

My pallet shed is finally complete and I am very pleased how it turned out. I love the tin can roof! I picked up the cute daisy sign at our local Goodwill for only $3.

Pallet House: edificio hecho con PALETS reutilizados

Una posible reutilización de estos elementos de madera está en la arquitectura, así lo demostraron dos estudiantes de la Universidad de Viena con su Casa de Palets. Para la construcción de esta casa de 60m2 se emplearon 800 palets, colocándolos como elementos de fachada, de techo, de pared, y como proteccción solar. El espacio entre los palets contiene elementos estructurales, el aislamiento, los cables y la iluminación…; las partes transparentes de la fachada se pueden cerrar por razones de seguridad con otros palets.

Gracias el empleo de 800 palets reciclados, y a la celulosa o la arena como material aislante (depende de la localización), podemos considerar a este edificio como muy ecológico y sostenible.

Well designers Andreas Claus Schnetzer and Pils Gregor have bested their original design with an even lower-cost shipping pallet home that was completed this year in South Africa. The 'Slumtube' utilizes discarded pallets along with other local materials like clay and straw to make an insulated and affordable home that can withstand the extremely hot and cold temperatures of Johannesburg. Schnetzer and Gregor built upon what they learned from constructing modular pallet houses, improving upon their original design to make it even more affordable. In previous designs, the pallets were used as floors, walls, ceilings and cladding, but they required sturdy wood beams, which were the most expensive part of the home. The new round design eliminates some of these expensive beams, but it’s still designed and built to European standards for structural soundness.
