About a year ago I searched Pinterest for shed ideas and came up with so many different types, styles and everything from DIY to professionally built. I also stumbled upon the pallet projects and I couldn’t get over how many projects were created using pallets. That’s when I came up with the idea, I will build my own shed using pallets.
The Pallet Shed…
To build the pallet shed, I am using two different types of pallets. The first type of pallet is treated but unfinished wood and contains thin and wide boards. I will be using these pallets for the walls and the wrap around porch.
The second type of pallet is what I call a super pallet. Why super? Because they’re built with strong wood and 4×6 piece runners unlike the other pallets. These pallets are seen partially painted blue. I’ve also seen other colors, but for my project they are blue. They are super sturdy and make a wonderful floor for my shed.
To start the project, I leveled six super pallets for the floor. I added five regular pallets along the front and left side of the super pallets to create my porch. The standard pallets were added for the wrap-around-porch.
After I finish building the shed, I plan on adding plywood on top of the super pallets for a solid flooring. I decided to wait on the flooring till the roof is in place. Ohio weather can be crazy and until the roof is on I would rather the rain or snow had some place to go.
For the sides, I added standard pallets on their sides. I connected the pallets using pallet wood while I build the outer three walls. Why only three? The front wall will contain the door and two windows.
I added pallet boards in the corners to help keep the walls in place.
This is just the beginning of the project pallet shed. Over the next week or two I will post our progress step-by-step and share details as we go.
