Now that my dogs have a fenced in back yard to play in every day they need a dog house. This house ended up being 4’x4’ square and stands 52” at the peak. It’s rather large but that’s by design. I have three dogs and they all enjoy it. The construction is 3/4” ply with pine trim. The roof shingles are resawn southern yellow pine.

I also made a fun video covering the build. For those who are interested you can see it here:

You can tell alot about a person by the way they treat their 4-footed friends. Well done.

Wonderful. I’d say to add a few vents. :)

Jay, I watched your YouTube video last night on this project. As always, you do a great job telling the story (and I got a chuckle out of the cameo Steve made at the end of the video). Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing your next project post.
