If the cattle panels are 16' long, then depending on how high you want the top to be will determine how far apart to put the pallet walls. Put up one wall, bow the panel against it, and move the other end in and out until you have the height you like, then that is where you set the opposite side wall.

Here the larger one with a wood deck - this is our “She Shed”



It’s a place to get all 8 or so of us out of the rain - just added a heavy duty tarp (25’x40’) and then I doubled it. Used a couple ratchet straps at the back to conch it right.

Zip ties in the front

Cool idea. Ever thought of painting the tarp to try to extend the life of it? May work, or may not.

Latex paint? Would oil base just fall off?

I'm not sure. I'd just ask a salesman at sherwin Williams if anything would stick to it

Great ideas and build...thx I been using Cattle panels/Tpost/Pallets for years for blinds..also you can get metal clips/or weld /braze..to hold panels together..
I make build fst with Ty Wraps..once I get it RIGHT then I weld/clip /braze...But if you get Quality Ty Wraps or Tie wire ..its basically permanent...but easily torn apart and moved...The other thing I found is That Vinyl that the use for bill boards and banners(used or outdated is free to low cost) ..is TUFF stuff and makes great roof and or sidewalls ..and is paintable and stands up to sun well''..I put grommets in mine

Nice. Great info.
We’ve also thought about stripping it out with 1x4’s and running tin length wise for a more permanent fixture.
