Pallet divan
Turkish pallets ;-)

1. Pallet divan on the roof.
2. Mattress maker cutting the foam.
3. Pallets put on concrete blocks.
4. Turkish saw in action.
5. Japanese saw in Turkey.
6. All you need is fantasy.

Here it is, the hangout and sleeping divan I build this summer in Turkey.
South West Turkey is hot in the summer, really hot, so a place to sleep looking at the stars or hanging out after sunset. In spring and fall it will be a perfect place for the mid day also, so I look forward to the next visit to our little house by the sea.

Build from trashed pallets, six concrete blocks and a mattress.

Hope this can inspire to get a nap or perhaps make a pallet divan…

all the best

Richard, trust me we have enjoyed it a lot and go there soon where the temperature are less hot, at this time it will be even more useful.
majuvla, nails only, smiles.
old novice, thank you.
Madts, ;-) a lot.
Pete, the truth is I really enjoyed thinking it, hunting free materials and then making it happen. I enjoy that part, the making, just as much as the using.
John, laugh, yes somehow you are really right. If we stack it right… ;-)
Joe, I will lean back and send you a good thought.
Jim, think i could enjoy that, the more tools I get the less tools I need… That’s kind of how it is.
CFrye, big smile, thanks.
Thank you all for the comments.
Best of my thoughts,
