This was the first doghouse I made 2-3 years ago. All pressure treated 2×4 lumber on the inside, pink insulation, and osb board for both the inside and out. Then cedar panelling for the exterior and cedar tone shingles. My daughter helped with the design and build, have since done more but not as elaborate. Will upload similar doghouses that we have built recently.

Classy….complete with a portal. Good that you insulated it….is better when you have to spend a cold night in it.(lol)

Your dog Should love it. I have been meaning to make a custome one for my Lab as well. Cedar was a great idea and nice touch.

Nice project but never thought to insulate one in this neck of the woods.
