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…
