Wood Pallet Houses – Savings, Skills and Care For Nature
Pallets are probably the most accessible construction material that can help build countless and diverse structures. We have seen over time how pallets, joined in different DIY ideas, can bring extra shape both inside and outside our homes, metamorphosing from a rigid looking material into useful items around the household. This time we are raising the stake and take a look at some wood pallets houses, small and simple structures as one may infer.
We’ll start with a small cabin which can serve as a holiday retreat, entirely made from wood pallets. The series of images can offer you some details about the steps of the construction so you can mimic the process yourselves. This tiny house has no foundation and is suspended on a couple of cement blocks and it can very well placed in the corner of a garden. Clad in plywood, the house has its walls finished with pallet planks, getting a special texture.
A similar project, different from the previous one thanks to some glass-work added at the gables, giving the recycled material built structure a somewhat modern feel. The doors and the windows were painted in red to give the place a bit of personality. Important to note that by using old wood pallets for such constructions, be them seasonal, you can save money, sharpen your DIY skills, and further decrease your environmental impact.
But if you want more than that, you can rise a house featuring a bolder architecture, such as the one in the images below. They say that a one year pallet wood which is used in American shipping trades is in so large quantity that about 84% of world’s houses can be built out of it, according to an I-Beam survey. Of course, we talk about such tiny houses.
