Building with pallets

This post is in progress. Stay tuned for updates.

I love the work with my hands and build things. In Malta I had a workshop under my house for 3 years. In that time I have build several small and big projects.

Below a quick overview and some pictures. Questions and/or comments? let me know below and I’ll be happy to tell more

Quickly skip to:

Living room wall furniture

This project has many many hours in it. Probably close to a 1000 over a period of 2 years time. We were living in a renting house at the time and the landlord didn’t want me to drill in the walls, so I designed a system that clamped itself between the floor and the ceiling. Once the main structure was build I had something to screw into. It was a completely organic build, so just a rough idea and it took shape by it self based on which materials I had available at the time. All wood used came from discarded pallets.

Plant boxes

I like growing stuff so I needed plant boxes. Big once quickly costs €50 and more so I decided to build my own


My brothers roof terrace was too hot most of the summer. So we decided to build some shade.


One day after a heavy storm we found a large amount of driftwoord. I became the wood with which we build our greenhouse and roof garden.

The roof garden in Malta

In Marsaskala, Malta we have built a roof garden / mini urban farm consisting of 15m2 greenhouse with aquaponic setup and over 100 planters with soil. Over the years we have grown:

  • tomatoes
  • different types of lettuce
  • strawberries
  • mint
  • prickly pears
  • rucola / rocket salad
  • zucchini / courgette

In the fish tanks we raise tilapia.

More on this story soon. Stay tuned!
