A shed

Granted, most sheds are made of wood, but what sets this shed apart from its contemporaries is that it is made from leftover shipping pallets. Vast numbers of shipping pallets are used and discarded every day, and John McDonald of Summerville, Nova Scotia, decided they'd make good construction materials for his firewood shed. His shed was built with 25 pallets, cost him less than $50, and holds about 3 1/2 cords of wood.
