build a better dog house

with only 2pc of 3/4 inch pt ply wood and 4 8ft pt 2x4's.... (per dog house)

you get a double insulated dog house with no compromises and superior weather protection.
the inner walls are insulated with fglass and i used horse stall bedding. (moisture control shavings)
each house took me @ 2 hrs to complete.
i still have to paint them, but you need to let new pt wood dry out for a minimum of 3 weeks.
Dog House Blue Prints


i'm in the northeast...you got a home depot near you?
heres what i did,...print out that link for the blue prints.
it gives you exact measurements for each piece of plywood.

have the little home depot employee measure and cut
the two pieces of plywood EXACTLY like it's stated...it will only work
out mathematically if each board is cut as stated. have him do the 2x4's
too. go home and slap it together with 2-1/2 inch galvanized screws.
always screwing through the plywood into the 2x4's. not the 2x4's into
the plywood. important!


slip him a 10.00 for his trouble and go after 8pm so it's slow.

oh yeah, place and cut the insulation before you screw on the
outside panels. it's easiest to build the inner walls together first.
so basically its a box inside a box...complete the inside box first.

another side note: i left the overhang on the roof portion so no waste for that cut.
and cut the openings last. you gotta have have a electric hand saw though. it will make life
easier.
so tools needed are: circular saw, power drill, and electric hand saw.


some before and after pics.

very similar to a colby doghouse... in structure. Looks like it should last several doggy lifetimes...
