We believe in making the most of all the overlooked and undervalued materials at our disposal. Wood pallets used for shipping are produced in mass quantities, and most of them are used once and then dumped in landfills.

Instead, I turn them into coops and animal houses built with a great deal of love and attention to detail. All my structures are built from reclaimed lumber, pallets, discarded materials from construction sites and “damaged” goods discounted at building supply stores.
