Two big dogs (Alaskan Malamutes) needed some new digs. So my son-in-law and I embarked on a mission to complete the project before the first snow fell (we just made it). Just now getting around to posting.
Based on a 4×8 foot print there are 4 rooms, divided in the middle so 2 rooms to a side (hence the Double Wide reference). I refer to the room with the door as the foyer, and down the hall and around the corner is the bedroom (away from the wind).
The floor is insulated, all exterior walls and all interior walls have drop in insulation and are double sided so the dogs can’t chew on the insulation. The roof (papered and shingled with drip edge) is pitched to the rear and hinged at the rear for easy cleaning.
No treated lumber was used on the interior, only under the floor.
My daughter refers to it as the DogMansion, which I guess goes along with the Taj Macoop I built.
Anyways, sorry I only have the one picture of the Doggy Double Wide.
