What kind of person builds stuff from free wooden pallets? I am fat and old with no fine motor skills and ADHD. I squeeze a nickle so hard, you can hear the buffalo squeak. I started with 8 free pallets and hardware from Restore to make this octagon. It is not plumb. It is not level. It is, however, sturdy: Notice, the preliminary inspectors seemed concerned about the stump that would not come out easily. I decided it is not sharp, and my ducks free-range all the time, so they are accustomed to natural obstacles. I am going to use shutters for the door. I am going to put chicken wire on the panels beside the front door. (Hardware cloth is too expensive. I have chicken wire.) I believe this will work because the ducks will go to the back of the house; the coon will have to reach far to get beyond the pallet; lights and sounds nearby deter coons. The roof is going to be a challenge. Planning would require this old soul to sit and think. Lumber and paint from Restore is on the back porch waiting for experimentation. Posting this photo invokes peer pressure. Witness woman battle a shortage of power tools and geometric ability.
