Do you need so much stuff that your home and garage are now just overflowing and crowded? Think of all the space you would be able to free up if you had a nice little shed in your backyard!
You can stash your holiday decorations out of the way until you need them. Or you can clear out your closets and make room for your clothes!
A shed is an essential feature in many backyards. Where else can you store the tools, lawnmower, and other stuff that simply doesn’t fit in the house? Some sheds even double as a workshop.
This one is all the better because it’s made from recycled pallets!
It’s good for your pocket since pallets are sold at very low prices, if not free. Would you believe that the shed featured here costs less than $500?
And that includes the money spent on all materials – including the concrete, frames, roofing, and exterior walls! Not bad for a large, sturdy shed, right?
Don’t forget the good that you are doing to the environment when you use recycled pallets. It helps save our natural resources and reduce landfill waste.
Would this shed work in your location? Take a look at the photos below showing how this shed was made and be inspired! 🙂
