Here is a dog house that I built for our puppy this past summer (you can see her in the second picture). I built it using house construction techniques, since that’s pretty much all I know. The walls are 2×4 studs 16” OC. The floor is pressure treated 2×4s and 5/4×6 decking boards. The floor rests on two pressure treated 4×4s to keep it off the ground, so that it stays dry and also helps regulate the temperature. The roof is OSB with tar paper and shingles and a ridge cap to let out the hot air.
I spent a lot of time and effort building this, and she doesn’t seem to know what it’s for…. Oh well, I enjoyed building it!
