If I had a way to get them home I could get tons of them. So I'll give you the directions, you pick them up and make me and the wife some cool stuff.

I know my husband would have been thinking "OMG, she's found me another project!"

Am building my silkie coop out of pallets and a wood shipping crate.

The hardest part has been the disassembling if some of them.

http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/92455_coop_day_2_064.jpg

This was a couple of weeks ago, have added 4 mil plastic sheeting as a vapor barrier, and the 3/4 plywood from the shipping crates as the siding. And in between the pallets & am stuffing it with hay as insulation.
The missing slats on the inside of the pallet, I am cutting strips of the 3/4 ply and filling in the spaces. Tomorrow I hope to add the roof and shingle it.

If you click on my BYC page, you can see pics of what we have built using pallets.  It's the only thing we use.

OK has anyone made any of the things they saw or planning to?

I'm thinking lawn furniture and some cool shelves.

That was pretty neat!  I forwarded it on to my son-in-law because he's so creative and always looking for ideas.  Thanks for posting it, wolftracks!

I just can't get enough of watching it. LOL

I see so many pallets around here and no way to get them home, but I'm going to figure out something soon.
