My uncle made it for me :) But sadly, the ducks don't sit in the house very often. The pallet has 2 boards/shelves on the bottom that stick out, they are under water and the ducks usually sit on those. They have no trouble getting on it, if you have a pallet and put boards on the sides and shelves on the bottom they should be just fine
Here is Eduard sitting on one of the bottom shelves, it's perfect for preening. The shelve is about 6 inch wide and sticks out a feet or so, when I take the house out of the water I will add more shelves because they totally love them.
I must warn you, your ducks might be frightened of the duck house at first
