    I want one! Ha ha. I can get pallets for free but I think this may be beyond my husband and my skill level.

    Thanks for sharing the link. We're in the process of planning our coop and I'm leaning towards pallet use. These are very cool!

    I love these pallet reuse plans but no one tells how they disassemble their pallets. As a kid, I worked in a sawmill building pallets and it was oak with ringshank nails from a air nailer! If you missed, the nail stuck and the oak board broke first!

    What an impressive gallery! When you consider the zillions of wood pallets that go unused into landfills each year, it is heartening to see such practical designs you could actually LIVE in.

    There's lots of great ideas there for carpenters to create one-of-a-kind coops. Thanks for sharing!

    Quote:There are a couple of ways to disassemble pallets. We use to do it by using a crow bar and hammer. That was A LOT of work. We finally bought a sawzall, so now we use that.
