I am discussing with my hubby about ways to save money building our coop. I mentioned pallets but, we were wondering just how much less it really costs. We can't find any building materials free/cheap. I've been looking only for a couple months though. We'd still need to buy wood/siding for the outside, roof and floor as well as flooring, window, venting....etc. All the pallets will do is structure. For that we are looking at 2X4s. We are very interested in making it as predator safe as we can since we have a country/water front property. I am just looking for estimates on how much you think was saved using pallets.
