I have checked YouTube but didn't find much on the way I'm planing to build. I want to build the walls with pallets and fill them with a cobbish mixture. Finally plastering over the pallets and cobbish fill with an earthen plaster. Just unsure about tiny details, like what is the best way to secure a pallet wall to a stone foundation? Etc..
The internet's obsession with pallets, IMHO, has gone too far. Buy yourself some proper lumber.
Lumber usually isn't the main cost in building, so I wonder how much you will save.
Pallets are generally* made from low-quality wood and they're fastened together ferociously. When I've taken pallets apart, it's always been a lot of work or you end up with a lot of waste. Even if you leave them whole, it's still low-quality material and looks it.
IMHO. Just offering some healthy skepticism about the new-conventional wisdom.
*Yes, there are some that are made of higher quality wood, especially for international shipments. But that's usually not what the internet is talking about.
