Easy DIY Pallet goat house

It's been awhile since I posted anything , I've made a extreme career change & went back to school ! Enough about that, let's talk about my latest project ! We needed housing for our goats that was both easy to do and also easy on the wallet ! I found a local business that has huge 8x8 pallets that were perfect for the project , So I got two of them . I went to the hardware store & bought some wood screws, a remnant of vinyl flooring & 3 sheets of tin roof, a total of less than $50. When I got home me & my son started the project, it was quite simple. We put one pallet on blocks and got it level, put plywood ( which I had here) down on top of the pallet for the subfloor then took some old standard size pallets I had and stood them on their end for the sides then lifted the other 8x8 pallet on top of the whole thing for a roof. We then took plywood and out it on the sides, put the tin on the roof & the vinyl floor in, the vinyl floor makes clean up super easy ! After I took the pictures we took one more pallet and put in  the front to close it some & also fixed a "door" So we can close them in at night. It's a very sturdy, warm shelter for our beloved goats , it was easy & quick to build & also easy on the budget ! Good luck and thanks for stopping by :)
