    Describe 'Ducks Pallet Palaces' here
    As you can say I got the Duck bug and the rest is history!!

    I decided to use and re-use most of my materials. This is the material list as follows.....

    10 pallets of aprox same size...I used 4ft pallets that were close to the same size.
    8 ft of bailing wire.... used to wire the sides together
    3 sheets of metal roofing....we had many peices just lying around from other old buildings
    2 sheets of lumber tarps .... we got them from a local truss company


    The ventilation was not good so I cut holes on all four sides about 3"x3". I didn't put a floor in but after the severe wet weather we have had I wood definitly do it and raise it up at least 6 inches of the ground. I made a trough if a 5ft 1x4 for the bottom and then the same for the front and back and for the sides, then put some old 4x4's on each end and one in the middle for the feeder. Their water is outside. Here is the other one we made the same day only this one we had to make the front out of some scrap wood as you can see threw the clear plastic.[[​IMG]

    I like how easy this would be but I could never do it. Our winds would eviscerate the entire structure in one blow.
