Curtis’ wife had an awesome idea: Take pallets and build a cabin playfort for their son. He made the idea come to life and the result is an awesome micro cottage made for almost no expense (his grandparents had the roofing material and siding).
Right now with the price of lumber skyrocketing, pallets are about the only wood you can still get for free or relatively cheap (for example, the Tractor Supply Company near me sells their pallets for $1 each).
Curtis’ craftsmanship proves that pallets can be used to create a super cool cabin! While this one is only for his son to play in, I could easily see someone transforming his design into an off-grid home. Thanks for sharing it with us, Curtis!

Micro Cottage Built From Pallet Wood
Here’s a look inside the cabin.
Notice he used fence panels on the inside to create siding!
Here’s a view of the roof.
Before they got the roof on…
Siding going up! You can see the pallet frame beneath.
He put the structure on concrete blocks.
There’s even a little flip-up window.
A fun light!
My wife thought it would be a nice birthday gift for one of my younger sons. The kids already have a tree house so a small cabin was next on the list. I got the pallets from our business and the wood siding and roof was wood from my grandparents. Other than the screws, since the wood was available, it was very inexpensive.
