"The Pallet Fence"
A good example of
building with pallets

We had the need for a fence and since I had access to a large number
of used wooden pallets we decided to put them to a good use.
This is another example what can be done with recycled products.

The following pictures show the end results.
A total of sixty five pallets were used so far which is
sixty five pallets that didn't go to the local landfill.

Building with recycled pallets

Well I'm at it again.
This time I need a new wood shed and had a lot of good pallets on hand.
The walls will be built the same way I built the pallet fence.

I started by cutting one of the pallets as shown.
These pallets are 39' x 39" (1 meter x 1 meter)
This makes the fence 62" high.
The cut pallet was overlapped on a full pallet
Then they were nailed together,
making a completed section.
They were then loaded on my trailer to be transported 
to the site where the fence is going to be erected.
Two sections being lined up.
Another completed section.
Sharon is giving me a hand.
Now she's concerned that the load may shift.
The sections are laid out where the fence will be.
The first two sections are up.
I used steel angle iron to support them.
Five sections are installed.
I now have six up with one to go.
And the last one is up.
This is the first of three sections of fence this length to be erected.
I'll have to wait until some more pallets come along 
before I can finish the project.
Wooden posts were added to give the fence more support.
We have five more sections ready to put up.
Three of the five sections are up.
The five sections are up.
The fence is just about half finished.

Again it's time to wait for more pallets to become available.
More pallets arrived yesterday so four more sections were 
built and added.
I now have 56 feet completed.
There is 28 feet more to go on this side.
We got some more pallets and have the one side finished.
These sections don't have the top part but that
will be added as the pallets become available.
Right now the objective is to get the back section closed in
so our dogs will be safe.
We've turned the corner with these last three pallets.
We are now almost half way across the back.
Another twenty pallets and we should be finished.
Once the back is closed in I plan on adding the top sections but for
now the important thing is to get it one section high across the back.
Our property is L shaped and we want to be able to let our dogs run 
down here this fall while we are doing some clearing on the back section.
We can't let them run now without being with them and watching them constantly.
Now I have turned the corner to go down the 
west side of the lower section of our property.

That's just about all for now.
The fence is finished except for straightening up the back a bit and that should do it.
For everyone who has watched the progress of this fence
I hope you enjoyed your visits.


Most of my visitors to my three Pallet Pages have submitted pictures of sheds that they built but Jacob Reinwand who lives south of Santa Fe New Mexico in a small village along the Rio Grande River wanted something different. He wanted a wall. He covered the pallets with construction paper, then chicken wire and then stuckoed the entire wall to match the house. I put steel poles in cement every 6 feet for support. 
I also built a garage connected to the wall  but I will have to take new pictures of it.
