I've been thinking about building a few pig and sheep sheds out of some pallets if you get around to that sky I'd defiantly like to see some pics.

Will be sure to take some pics most the time for goats and calves I get old totes and cut them for housing. I will make my shelter out of wood I have only buy hardware to build it and see what I can come up with.

Looks functional. Old tin would look good on there. I had a few of those structures starting out with sheep. Only lasted a few years, but got me out of a bind at the time.

Worked on it a little more after it finished raining. I put up some more fencing and worked on the shelter more. I should have it done by the weekend. I think I may leave the sides open so that wind can circulate through there.The roof I will put on then tar paper 30# will have 25 bucks tied up into it.
