I am looking at building a summerhouse but have no money!

I already have the timber for the carcass but obviously need floor, roof and walls. I am thinking of recycling/upcycling old pallets over a skin of roofing felt for the walls and floor and obviously the felt over the top on the roof.

However, if anyone has any ideas where I can get ply or OSB board very cheaply, even usable offcuts and/or secondhand then I would use that.

Arnold Laver sometimes has half-decent offcuts and slightly damaged product. I've had usable short-length tongue and groove from their pile before.

If there's any building sites near by you might get lucky, the one by my work had a load of fencing made from sheets (OSB/Ply) that all got chucked in the tip at the end
