Pallet playhouse

Recycled pallet timber was used to create this kids playhouse with hinged windows and a planter box.





The project


I was given a whole pile of pallets, so I broke them down into a pile of timber and used it to create this playhouse for a friend's son. The little guy was very happy with his birthday present.


As these were recycled pallets from a business, there were some heavy duty ones in there, which meant that I could use the pallets for all the supports and flooring too. I found the corrugated iron for the roof too, so I only needed to buy a heap of screws, the hinges and a lock.
