    Any one on here have an experience building a pallet shed. Looking to get one started. Found some video on google, but.. I think my main problem will be how to prepare and build a foundation. I think the actual shed looks simple enough with pallets though. Hoping to be able to build it for wood pellets.

    I think PalletPete has one. (Imagine that... :p) Start a conversation with him or search his old threads.

    Definitely Pallet Pete has one of the best pallet sheds. Do a search on his name and it should show up. Or you might send him a new Conversation and he'll give you details and pictures.

    That looks great, keeps it dry and lets in air. Reminds me of the old tobacco barns back on the east coast. When I was young I asked my dad why all of those barns have slats and siding missing all over it, he told me that's where they hang the tobacco to dry. I'd like to do one exactly like that one day. Maybe with a big enough opening to load in a pallet stack of firewood. Less restacking.

    Here's mine:

    Built from pallets and $50 worth of lumber from the reject pile at Lowes. I'm planning on upgrading to a combination toolshed/woodshed that will hold more wood (this one holds about 5 cords) that's a little more attractive and useful, but this one does the job. On the bright side, when I finish the new shed I can burn the old shed :)
