Today’s post topic will be structured made out of pallets…
Pallets are pretty abundant and easy to acquire. Most of the time they can be free.
So, let’s explore…
First I’d like to you check out this housing solution by I-Beam Design, “The Pallet House”.
The average life of a Refugee camp is 7 years, with some exceeding beyond 50 years. There is a need for an alternative shelter to the typical tent solution that can transform a temporary living condition into a permanent home.
Pallet House by I-Beam Design, was conceived as a transitional shelter for returning Refugees.

I couldn’t get the video to show up here, so I’ll have to just give you the link… Pallet House I Beam Design on YouTube (Opens in a new window)
It’s a good looking house, especially for a pallet house.
Check out Michael Janzen’s Tiny Free House…
I love his idea of building this on a trailer. Go check out his blog Tiny Free House.
