I built this Dog house with reclaimed pallet wood. Our dog didn't have anyplace besides our house to get in out of the weather so I built this over a weekend. I used all pine and fir and I made the ship lap siding. I built it so it will unbolt and come apart for easy moving. The top lifts up so a breeze can cool it down on hot days as well as easy clean up.I put a metal ridge cap on and insulated the floor, walls,and ceiling.
It is thermostatically controlled from inside the house for those cold winter nights, It is equipped with one light which is also controlled from inside the house. I put the window in for the fun of it which the dog seems to like.
