$50 Recycled Pallet Wood Cabin Intro

  • Published on Mar 20, 2018
  • Just an introduction to the next project from St. Bernard Acres. While in between building the cabin for me & Gail, I thought this would be a great use for all the extra wood I find and all the pallets I recycle. Should be fun, and could give some ideas to people.

    Very nice! We are saving pallets right now to make a small sleeping cabin for 4 people. Not much else as we dont want it too big.

    Joe, Are you including the barrel stove kit in the price of the cabin? That'd put you around 100.00 total cost? And what did that fancy board puller tool cost you? I like it, but shoestring is better than my budget. What are the dimensions of the floor you are sitting on?

      +Matt Parker I didn't include the stove as I'm not sure what I will do. The pallet tool was about 50 on Amazon.

    Joe, I’ve been reading of pallet projects for years. Here is a link to one of my favorite sights if the link works, www.reshareable.tv/pallet-emergency-home-can-built-1-day-basic-tools.html. Iv3 always wanted to do 5his myself, but never had the land. Good work!

    I think you should install marble counter tops and central air. Yeah... that's the ticket.

    Good deal Joe, looking forward to see how it turns out.

    Where did you get the tool to take the boards off the pallets with?

      I was wondering the same.... Where did you get that tool to decompose the pallets?

    It's going to be fun to watch you build this little cabin, I've often thought the guys from TA Outdoors could have a hotel by now, if they had a circular saw to go with their drill. It's hard work cutting all that lumber with a bow saw. Are you planning to salvage any of the nails from the pallets? It would save you a few bucks, but it takes a lot of time, too. Linda and I send our best.

      I understand and respect what they're doing, but I'm old and lazy. LOL

      Thanks! I think it'll be fun. I am not planning on salvaging the nails though, and will probably use more power tools lol.

    You have sunshine, god bless Stella 😄
    I have lived the bare survival life. I can't wrap my mind around the thought of anybody wanting to live like that even for one second let alone a week or two.

    If you eventually added say a wraparound porch to your main cabin (house) and screened/ windowed part of it to make a sunroom/extra bedroom, would the powers that be allow this?

      This is just a weekend cabin for now. After we move out there, it will become like a guest cabin.
