Our structures are about 9′ x 8′ and about 8′ tall in the front and 6′ in the back. They are made from recycled pallets that we can obtain for between $5 and $8 each. Only the steel roof of this structure is new material. The total hard costs (excluding labor) for these barns is less than $150, a one person can construct one with a circular saw and a hammer in less than 4 hours.
Great pallet shed. The goats and sheep would love this for some shade in warmer months.
