My niece asked to build a doghouse for her 2 dogs and this is what we came up with. They are renting so they needed something that could be taken apart and moved fairly easy. all four walls and roof can be easily broken down. the porch roof can be removed also it hangs on a cleat that is secured to the front wall. The entry doors will get doggie doors put in eventually and we still have a little trim to do around the bottom and along the roof sides.
I think if we did it again we would cut the 2×4 frames in half and it would still be plenty strong enough but would take away some weight and expense. it is very sturdy and so far the dogs dig it and they are staying warm and dry.
