“Kevin Bentley (www.facebook.com/thepalletcabin) shares his “Pallet Cabin” with us- one he made from recycled and free pallet wood. This cabin, at 12′ by 12′, stands as a great little hunting, guest, or weekending cabin or cottage, or could potentially be used/ converted into a tiny house for full time living. Kevin, based in Georgia, (and a tiny house fan) has many other projects in the works, so be sure to check out his Facebook page, and subscribe!”

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND FREE rigid foam insulation.
If you happen to live near a business that makes SIPS–Structural Insulated PanelS–they may give away their scraps for free.
We had some pieces which were 4FT by 10FT seven-and-a-half inches thick, R-4 per inch, making it R-30.
YOu will be able to keep this material out of the landfill and insulate your space or someone else’s.
Yes, someone can argue about the outgassing or it being a foam…I have used it to super insulate a 220 Sq Ft space in a mobile home, along with armafoil radiant barrier.I am sensitive to offgassing, and have not had any issues.
I can heat that space with a tiny Delonghi oil filled radiant heater on 900watts of electric. Even when it is frigid outside.
I used the insulation inside of the space, also creating a dead air space between interior wall and my superinsulating materials. On what would be the exterior walls, floor and ceiling.
Very good news! Thanks Gail.
He may not need it in Georgia, but there are ways to insulate the walls and roof.
