Pallet Porch

Introduction: Pallet Porch

so this my newly created pallet porch that I'd like to share with you! I started by slowly collecting free Heat-Treated pallets from industrial companies in my neighbourhood. I went with a very simple design since this is my very first pallet project. I can honestly say that I made the entire thing for less than $100CDN!!!

The base if made from cinder-blocks, which I received from Freecycle; I was lucky to have found a large 10ft x 3ft pallet for the base, which I secured on top of the cinder-blocks.

Next I simply stacked and secured enough pallets to give me the height I needed before setting down the top layer of my porch, which is an awesome 10ft x 4ft pallet.

The steps were a bit more difficult and I had a friend help with designing them and levelling them and securing them. I still have some finishing touches, such as blocking in the front of the steps for more aesthetic appeal and something for edging around the porch so nobody falls off.

Enjoy!

    Great looking porch. Do you have any more pictures of the construction process?

    Thanks so much; it was really fun to build! I didn't think to take pics of the process...next time I certainly will. I think I have 1 other that show the steps construction better; I'll add it soon. I'd be happy to answer any questions
