    Default Build a doghouse for Hershe

    So I decided to build a doghouse for my 3 month of black lab puppy, Hershe. I found a how-to-online, but if you're like me a photo guide will be very beneficial. materials include:
    • skill saw
    • drill
    • phillips head drill bit
    • drill bit for screws, screws
    • 6 2x4x12
    • 3 4x8 1/2in plywood
    • nails
    • shingles

    Here's the materials
    hershe's house 2.jpg
    hershe's house 3.jpg
    hershe's house 4.jpg
    hershe's house 5.jpg

    Let me know what you think. Not sure if the photos all all in the right order +/- amount of photos I can upload.

    I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about the dog house.

    That was fun I bet. It looks good, ....however no photos of Hershe. Do you not put in insulation. That would help keep the heat out on warm days and the warmth in on cool days. U would have to put in an interior wall though. I want to build a bird house. Everytime I tell my husband that I want to build a bird house he builds me another one. LOL. I don't think he want me near his tools.

    Here is a picture of Hershe enjoying her doghouse. Yes if does protect her from the elements. There is also a tarp above her kennel (2x the protection).

    Here is another picture of her with me going to Corpus Christi.

    I made this thread so people could see a visual step by step process of me building a doghouse. As for the indoor/outdoor argument there are other threads we can go to debate that topic. Please keep this forum to doghouse related topics. If anyone else has built a doghouse on their own, I'd love to see it. Always looking for an excuse to build something whether its a bookcase or doghouse.

    Thanks.

    PS: Her kennel is her domain where I'm the visitor.

    Well done for not being dragged into a well worn argument and well done with the kennel !

    Thanks,
    Been viewing this site for some time, and though I'd join. There is some information I'd like to share about my lab, but there is still a lot I can learn because others have been doing this far longer. When we get past the "chewing stage" we'll see about being an inside dog.
