For everyone who's ever looked at a used pallet and thought "that would make a great roof" but didn't know where to start, we just found a great tutorial for you over at ReadyMade. Building a house (even a small one) from pallets is a big project but it actually doesn't require too many tools or materials.
If you can somehow gather 30 40x48 inch pallets, you're more than halfway there. Just grab a hammer, saw, nails, and drill and you're ready to get to work.
The instructions at ReadyMade for a 100-square-foot Tiny Pallet House are pretty thorough. We'd love to know if anyone tries this out. The "house" seems like it would make a great backyard shed and/or office.
