Albert has built a small cabin for his garden, where you can meditate, practice yoga or relax yourself, anyway you can also adapt it for your children to use it as a playhouse, so the possibilities are many.
The concept is well thought out, the structure is made of pallets in a very simple way, and then it has been coated using brushwood, which gives it a more than a worthy finish, so the work employed building it ends up being the minimum 🙂
The tools and materials used are: 6 pallets, one hammer, sandpaper, screws, nails and metal brackets, varnish, brushwood 5m (17 feet).
First we have to sand the pallets to start working with them.
Look for a good place to locate the cabin, then to start you just have to put a pallet as a base to build the floor, and then attach some metal brackets to it to fix the side walls, both made with 2 pallets.
Then end it closing the structure of the cabin, add a rear pallet and fix it like the other 2 walls, and then set some pallet planks over de walls, using some nails to stabilize all the structure. Over the ground place a wooden board to make it more comfortable. It’s a good time now to start varnishing or painting the cabin.
Other details that Albert has added to the cottage is a small porch and an outside seat, also made with 2 whole pallets. The wooden blocks from the porch have been located over the roof, just to give later some curve to the brushwood.
Finally just cover the walls and the roof with the brushwood, if you don’t want to get wet when it rains you can add a plastic sheet between the pallets structure and the brushwood. Other aspects that will add a special touch to the cabin are: some curtains working as a door, cushions for the outdoor seating, and torches at the entrance. Be careful and don’t put the torches to close to the brushwood! if not a “little” accident can occur.
Thanks Albert we love your cabin 🙂
