Pallet ideas

Love this picture not my farm but I thought it was so cute

For a while now I have been intrigued by the use of pallets. They seem to be everywhere and if you look for example at certain business or on the craigslist or free cycle you see people trying to get rid of them all the time.

On my internet search I have seen, sheds, chicken coops, garden fences etc.. I decided to start a link section of these places and ideas so I don't have to keep repeat looking for them when I am trying to tell people about how wonderful they are:

 Here is our picture of are newly made pig pen
