I'm looking at building some inexpensive shelter for my goats and sheep.
Here's my dilemma:
I rent the land my animals are on, so I'm not looking at making a major financial investment.
I thought of portable shelters like calf shelters, but they are just too pricey.
Next option: building with pallets. They are free and all it would take is a bit of my time.
I built a buck shelter 8x8 from a single layer of pallets (4'high) and it looks great.
However, I would like to build something taller for the rest of the herd (about 60 goats and 60 sheep).
I'm thinking 8' high (2 pallets)
Mostly thinking of 3 sided loafing sheds to keep the rain off and the wind out. I rotate my pastures so thinking of building a few in each pasture.
Any ideas? How about footing for a 3 sided loafing shed - what do I need to know? I have some construction experience, but not with footing for something without a floor.
