I made this Pallet Storage Shed/Cabin from pallets and other reclaimed wood, some wood screws, and my own labor. It measures 85 x 110 inches (approx. 7 x 9′ shed). I did purchase a Porter Cable 6-tool Combo Set to finish the job.
Pallet Storage Shed/Cabin Floor & Walls:
First, I cleared and leveled a spot in my yard. Next, I used several pallets and laid them down as the flooring. I split other pallets apart and used the deck boards to create a diagonal flooring, putting the boards up against one another tightly. Next, I framed out the walls using two layers of pallets to create the height I wanted. I secured them together vertically and horizontally with screws. I also ran long 2×4″ boards through the tops and secured the pallets to the board for additional stability. Then, I clad the outside of the shed with more deck boards and used recycled plywood panels to finish out the inside. I spanned across the top with long boards and created a roofing frame. Finally, I topped it with more plywood.
Pallet Storage Shed/Cabin – the Door and Finish Framing:
I created a light door using long deck boards, and only screwed them together with boards along the top and bottom. Then, I framed out the door opening and reinforced the header area. Then, I upcycled some hinges and mounted the door in place. I placed a few pallets on the outside for a place to stand as I exited/entered the cabin. I may roof and paint it in the long-term, but for now, I’m excited that the project is built.
Editor’s note: Be sure to check with your local planning/zoning department and/or code enforcement departments to verify the maximum size and location of sheds/cabins, etc. Some areas have very strict easement requirements, as well as size, height, and clearance from fence lines.
