My buddy and I made this for his dog in December. It took us about 2 days of after dinner work and it came out pretty nice. We were both pretty pleased. It doesn't get too cold in Alabama, but we insulated it anyway.
I never had any experience of leaving a dog outside.Please tell me is this for security reasons like a watchdog or what?I always kept mine or liked to to have them in the house in the hub of the society.Not intended in anyway as a criticism just we do things different here leaving dogs out side seems to be very popular in the states I wonder why.Alistair
This is great. I was recently talking to a friend and he was asking if I would help him build something like this over the summer. We're in Illinois so it will be super-insulated. Probably even the floor. Nice to have a visual now. I'll have to show it to him and see what he says. Did you have any kind of a plan to start with?
I wish you wouldn't have posted this. Now my wife wants me to make one and we don't have a dog. Either she is hinting about getting a dog or she is making plans for me to sleep in it.
Nice job on your buddy's dog house…...that was a really cool man-friend thing to do together.
This is a nice looking doghouse. Would I be correct in assuming the roof is hinged for easy access?
I've been thinking of something like this for our dogs. Mine would need to be suited for hot summers and a couple weeks of cold weather. I was thinking of making shutters for windows that could be opened to allow a breeze in summer and closed to block the wind in winter.
Nice looking dog house. When I had my hunting dogs in ND I always had that inside wall as others have suggested. If you do make another one someday, you might want to insullate the floor if you did not do so and keep the dog house off the grond. That way the dog is not getting the moisture from the ground. Also have the roof lift off or a trap door in case Fido drags something in the house you need to get out.
