We use old cut carpet to cover the face of our pallets when we use them as bunkers. Paint doesn't penetrate, and it covers up the slats so you can use even the cheapie pallets.

And that's a nice find on those cart tires! We set them on their side and stack 'em about 4 high. Makes a very nice stand-up bunker.

Where are you searching to find the carpet?

You can sometimes get carpet scraps from a carpet store, otherwise cruse around and do some dumpster diving or curb pick up when someone replaces their carpet. new construction may have some too.

That's what I came up with as far as ideas, but I never seem to see anything going on. A lot less reno's going on right now, but my neighborhood is pretty new so people aren't needing to replace carpet quite yet. I'll have to get some feelers out a little further and see what happens. A single home would probably suit our field perfectly.

I found a few old rolls sitting outside an apartment complex in a college town with the word "FREE" plastered on the sides in standard black sharpie. Had some measurements on them too.

A very old church in a nearby town was being demolished, and so we gathered up all the carpet out of there too.

And, I have also contacted at least three local places that sell and install carpet, and told them I would love to have the old throw-away carpet when they do re-flooring jobs.


Got to know your sources, of course.

Yep apartments are great places to check. But just be ready to do the work yourself and get it done quickly...they often do not want it laying around for long and the people laying it are not generally willing to do work for free. Not always the case, but often is.

BTW on those tires above, Watch for mosquitoes, tires are perfect breeding ground for them. We throw anti breeding tablets in them every spring.
I took a drill and put holes in all the dependent positions that water could accumulate in. Mine are the regular truck tires that sit on top of each other on top of the barrels.

Check out snowmobile/motorcycle/ATV dealers; they usually recieve these vehicles in crates which are made from OSB and strapping. They usually allow you to help yourself to these. Very useful for bunkers.
