    You did a great job! I'm gathering pallets today to get to it. Eyeballing some scraps around our property as well. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll be posting on here :)

    That is a fantastic pallet coop! I hope you don't mind that I "Pinned" one of your photos to one of my Pinterest boards so I can come back to it when I hopefully build a pallet coop in a few weeks.

    Question, if you don't mind,

    How do you get the pallets apart to salvage the boards?

    Since they started stapling them with those monster staples instead of nailing them we've given up on building with pallet wood because we can't get the boards off without them getting chewed to shreds anywhere there was a staple.

    I use a sawz-all and just cut them apart- goes so much quicker. I just built a coop this weekend using mainly pallets for the lumber and signs for the siding.

    We used a saws-all. Get in between the plank and the 2x4 and saw the nails off. It takes time but it's pretty easy. And try and find pallets all the same size too.
