Mini Wildlife Observation Platform Made of Pallets For Free!

After spending a huge amount of time creating a small wetland for wildlife we decided to add a small observation platform so that we could enjoy the sights and sounds of the plants and animals that we've attracted.

After salvaging materials from pallets that we got for free from Jennifer's dad...

...we simply placed a salvaged 4x6 on the ground to make-level two pallets that would form the deck frame:

We then disassembled enough additional pallets to provide us with the boards we needed to fill-in the gaps:

Next we added our little bistro set and screwed it down to the platform as it's often windy here and we did not want anything blowing into the wetland:

That's it! Easy-peasy. Other than half-a-box of nails, we spent nothing on this project. Free pallets for all, we say!
