Can you use wooden pallets for garden shed floor?

I think Bunnings employee's have to be careful with the advice they give, given there would be public liability issues for bad advice if it was to turn pear shaped.

 

I would use sleepers over pavers as there is more weight in them but I also have an old aviary that was replace by a shed that is just sitting on pavers in the back yard waiting to be thrown away it hasn't blown away yet...

That's fair enough, @Tricia2002.

 

If you change your mind, creating a concrete slab that is 3000x1500x75mm would require around 39 x bags of Bastion 20kg Concrete Mix which would cost $284. @tom_builds has excellent articles on How to pour a concrete slab and How to finish a concrete slab which I trust you'll find helpful.

"Unfortunately, timber pallets don't last long when in contact with water and soil."

 

I learnt that a few years back - termites loved them. :unhappy:
