    I was inspired after seeing some of the uses on this site for pallet coops. I needed to make a Goat shed for "Day-Z" and inbetween bands of rain from this hurricane, my youngest son and I tackled it today. We still have to paint it, then add the siding (board and baton ) and finally set it on the dirt.

    I can now foresee some new breeding pens and coops in the works, this was pretty easy and took about an hour.

    Ryan can now get a 2nd goat so he was really into the build!

    Trying to stay as cheap as possible, a visit to Lowes scored me some fence replacement slats at $1.50 each for the sides. I still need a few trim pieces and it will be officially done. I ended up with just shy of $200 in it including screws which i still have a bucket full of for future projects. The 2ft cut offs from the slats will be used for other projects as well.
