i was sharing this with people on another forum and i thought i would share it here

many years ago i was given several 7 1/2 foot long pallets and i had a foundaiton that we had poured some excess cement in for a floor..

i used screws cause i couldn't drive a nail into the pallets and i made this shed from them..with t 1 11 siding and double doors on the right end and salvaged doors on the inside (divided with pallets into two rooms) and a salvaged door for entry on south

Fine looking shed, Brenda.

Oak is often used for pallets.  Left in dry, ventilated warehouses the wood seasons, gets as hard as a rock.

thanks, i actually had the walls framed together when my husband was gone, and had the siding up and the rafters made but not up..and when he got home he helped put up the rafters and the roofing material..

i love doing things like this...guess i got it from my dad who had me recycling buildings when i was 5
