    Thank you so much. We are happy with it and if you find the pallets for free works out cheap!!

    Yeap thats my way of thinking too. I can get broken or damaged pallets free from work s truck load at a time so it woulnt take long to get enough to build a small pen

    That's cool. It took us a lot if calls and time finding places willing to give up pallets around here were we live. Some wouldn't even part with them if you offered to pay them

    Love the size!! Great job.

    Can't tell from the pictures but I hope you used wire(hardware cloth is one of the best) on the roof and windows.

    Thank you. Yes we did and at bottom and door to. We ran out of hardware cloth at top of roof and used poultry wire for now. But we are going to buy more hardware cloth and layer it over where we had to use poultry wire as temporary fix
