Although some of these pallets may not have the highest of quality wood, if your design and plans are good enough, you can still be sure that your pallet shed will be durable and strong.
Other sources for free or cheap wood pallets are from your neighbors, or if you drive around you may find them from homes where they have done some remodeling work. Many of them would be just too happy to get rid of their pallets saving them the work of getting rid of these pallets. Mills and lumberyards are also great sources for wooden pallets. Classified ads and many websites also offer them as freebies; they do these so they can save money from having someone haul the pallets away for them.
