    Do a forum search on 'pallet coops'. There are any number of threads on the subject.

    I used a whole pallet for a base then attached 2x4 as legs then used broken up pallets to make wall panels. Had to buy a few bits and pieces but worked out very cheap. Also i had very little previous construction experience
