Awesome Pallet Treehouse

29 Mar

I’ve been watching the web for Pallet Construction Projects and I’m always impressed by the creativity and talent of the builders who have posted to the web.  I decided last spring to build something with my sons and the result was a pretty awesome tree house.

We started with a few pallets, some old posts and a couple of concrete pavers.  The end result is now aptly named “The Apocalypse Hut” and has plenty of features to help make it Zombie Proof.  In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse the second floor can be sealed off with a cool trap door and there are plenty of shooting ports for the ever present Nerf Darts used for self defense.

The project took two Saturdays to complete,, but we had a ton of fun building and it certainly saw plenty of action throughout the summer of 2012.  This spring we plan to add a few features and then paint it with an all-weather stain.  (Camo colors of course).

Watch for the addition of the “Pallet Shed”.  It’s awesome too!  Coming soon.
