    Do you have to use this type of wood? Or can u go for something a little more thinner? I’m trying make a cat house as weird as it sounds.

  6. scottgixxer67 says:

    Myself, a framer for many years ,,you learn tricks to make the job look better…Like putting the saw blade on backwards when cutting plexiglass and vinyl siding ,for clean looking cuts…Also wear safety glasses !!!

  7. car1it0sWAY says:

    I’d live in there and I don’t even have a dog

  8. Spicy Illuminati says:

    I love this dog house.

  9. ambar saenz says:

    you should make one the has more protection for winter time.

    • Texas Outdoors with Tony says:

      I live in the most south part of texas and during the winter my dog stays outside since It doesn’t get to cols and when it gets colder we gave a nice warm cozy dog house for him in the garage. but he lives the cold.

    • Texas Outdoors with Tony says:

      i spend tons of time with him though

    • Ehsas Amim says:

      if it’s a double fur coat dog that’s typically for cold environments like huskies, pyrennes etc it will have no problem in a kennel

    • Daniel Speese says:

      Rest In Piss Christina Grimme dogs actually do well in winter. Don’t stick your Chihuahua out there but most medium to larger dogs enjoy it. My Aussie mix loves being outside no matter the season

    • T Ritchie says:

      EmiTubeย  Straw not blankets. Blanket’s will get wet but straw usually don’t.Straw make’s good bedding for animal’s and make things better in the winter.Something I learned growing up around outdoor dogs.

    Nice but it must weigh a ton. Shoulda made the roof removable or easy sweep out etc.

      HELL NO

    • Miss Kim says:

      Do the same thing, maybe corner block or at least add some L-brackets top, center, and bottom of each corner for strength. Maybe for cats, make it taller than it is wide, and put 3-4 โ€œfloorsโ€ in, about 18โ€- 2โ€™ high each, and cut an alternating hole at least 9โ€ around in each floor, so they can easily jump up to the next level, cross over, and go up another floor. (If the holes aligned above each other, theyโ€™d not be able to do that.). You can add an angled beach for climbing lip, but the holes work fine for most cats. Then, use 4โ€x4โ€ posts to cut a good 8โ€ for feet to keep it all off the ground and out of the rain and snow. 4 feet for a smaller one like 3-4โ€™ square,, 6 feet for one bigger than that.

      Iโ€™ve made a few shelters, I angled the roofs slightly to have a sloping roof to keep rain and snow off, painted them on the outside only, tossed shingles on the top, and in 2 of them, some scrap carpet.thr make good shelters and feeding stations (not the same in one structure, they need to be away from the food to get used for a shelter), They love them, especially nice for winter or to get out of the heat in summer. You can add windows so they can watch the yard and keep an eye out for trouble, but have a way to sleep away from the windows. I keep mine in shadier areas.

      If youโ€™re worried about plastic window materials chipping when cutting, just cut them larger than the hole and duct tape them in place in the inside. The cats donโ€™t care. But theyโ€™ll like the view.

      Mine are super heavy, bc I framed in the bottom, part of the top, and corner blocked them all, but they are very sturdy. Very. Sturdy. Indeed.
