Interesting. Looks like your dog has it made! It’s like a tiny trailer. I like it.

I have an air conditioned dog house that I call my workshop.

Greg, I think you took the words out of a lot of our mouths, except that a lot of them, such as mine are not
air conditioned. Great looking dog house, is there a flap type door off that entrance to keep the cool air in?
Your picture indicates you have fall type weather, do you have to heat the dog house in the winter? Thank
you for sharing and welcome to Lumberjocks.

Now that’s a dog lover’s pup house! If I had a dog, I couldn’t sleep at night if the four-pawed family member had to sleep outside in the cold. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one to have concerns about outdoors pet comfort. Oh, and welcome to LJs :)

Welcome to LJ’s!

How do you keep the Mastiff from chewing up everything on this masterpiece? I am assuming this is the smallest window AC unit they make?

My dogs chew up/eat anything that is wood. I swear they are part beaver. They grab every scrap in the shop and some stuff that isn’t scrap if I don’t catch them. Ipe is the only wood I have found so far that slows them down a bit.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I will try to answer all the questions in the next few words, here we go! This was built for a customer,
The a/c unit is the smallest I could find, it has a steel cage over the control panel to keep “Dahmer” from chewing on it. it is 6×4x4 and fits perfectly on the bed of a truck. the a/c unit slides out for maint. or to replace with a heater ( I also made a filler panel to cover the hole)
it is VERY insulated! I used roll roofing and caulked all seams for waterproofing. and the customer will install the flap for the door. it was a fun build!
here is a couple others

I’d give Tammy Fay (Baker) a call. She’ll likely buy one !

My dog jumps in the creek in my front yard when he needs to cool off, but I do provide him a heat lamp in the winter and an insulated Igloo.
