Inside the barn
Building the barn was a lot of hard work, but I learned a lot about the pallet industry and urban migration throughout the process, and got to teach visitors about it, too. I was surprised to learn how many pallets are used every year, and how many of them go to waste after they've met their end destination. Pallets are also made almost entirely out of hardwood, which makes their end waste even more detrimental.
