Building an off-grid cabin is a great—whether for a year-round home away from city life or as a vacation home to unwind. It’s low-cost and it hones your survival skills. But while most off-grid DIY cabins in the woods rely on heavy lumber/logs from the surrounding forest cover, a father and son team from TA Outdoors had a different idea—inspired by building a cabin from pallet wood – using reclaimed pallets.

Unlike conventional building materials, pallet wood is eco-friendly, easily accessible to anyone who’s motivated, cheap (or even free), and surprisingly versatile. As the father-son duo in the video demonstrates, all you need is the grit to see the project through, a saw, nails, a hammer, and a pry bar for deconstructing pallets.

When whole, shipping pallets make versatile building blocks and fit the bill for large projects such as the flooring and frame of a cabin. Cast-off or damaged pallets can often be obtained for free and would suffice for a ton of furniture and home improvement projects. There is also the opportunity to “make one good pallet from two bad ones” as often, a pallet is discarded when only partially damaged.

The underlying goal of the TA Outdoors DIY off-grid cabin project was to show people that building a simple cabin in the woods doesn’t have to be expensive. Any savvy do-it-yourselfer with some hand tools, out-of-the-box thinking, and a passion for the great outdoors can build a cheap, low-tech off-grid homestead.

While small, the cabin they built boasts many of the simple necessities one person would need—including a chair, bookshelf, folding table, raised bed, and a woodstove. Of course, there is no kitchen or bathroom so this is going to be more like camping than home life – but if you’ve been putting off plans to build a simple cabin due to financial constraints, give pallets a shot. The YouTube video offers all the inspiration and instructions you need to turn this lightweight material into a paradise in the woods.
