Today I’m building a quick and easy DIY doghouse for our new puppy, Olive! It’s a pretty basic design, nothing super crazy or complex, but I think it came out well and looks great! There is a drawer for dog treats, toys, leashes or whatever else I decide to put in there. At the end I’ll tell you about the first upgrade it will be getting… a Doggie Water Tower! Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions☺

      thanks VG! I’m cautiously optimistic she won’t eat it before she gets out of puppyhood 🙂

    • Pablo Pérez says:

      We’ll, i don’t know much about dogs but! as long as you have done chew toys for her age should be fine. But if she does chew on it, look at it on the bright side =) “A new project =D” hehehe, wish you all the best Joe.

    I like it my brother great job man good one 🙂

  8. Mikołaj Organek says:

    If You are in this kind of a thing, you could paint (white and red checkerboard) and weather the tank so it would look like an really old miniature water tower. BTW cool project!

    • homesteadonomics says:

      I do like that idea…. I just finished the water tower video but I may have to do a repaint job in the future 😀

  9. Country Living Experience: A Homesteading Journey says:

    As always, you are awesome brother. Great, simple design executed well. Letting your daughter help is very cool too……reminds me of my everyday experience with my daughter wanting to help me with our projects. Keep it up!

    Nice construction and all. But I think it’s to small for when Olive becomes a full grown Australian Shepherd…could have been an extra foot longer.

    • homesteadonomics says:

      I may have to do a addition then 🙂 But hopefully not, I based the sizing off of here mom and dad… they are both smaller to med aussies.

    My Aussie is smart, Bad thing is, they know it, He is constantly trying to outsmart everyone in the household

    Hey Joe, nice job. Alway enjoy watching the things you build. – Jeff

  13. Jacob Hannan says:

    You should collect rainwater from the roof to fill the water tower!

  14. GuardedDig2 says:

    Have it collect rain water for a dog water dish

    Easy……..
    Right………?

  16. Estevan Pargas says:

    Great video how much did it cost

  17. Simos Simos says:

    i think that the door shouldnt be at the middle. In cold weather , the dog will not have anywhere to hide from the air. So the door should be at the left or at the right .

    • Sapphire Otaku says:

      Simos Simos They said it’s just for when they leave her outside for the day and it’s Arizona. A breeze is a good thing there are cold isn’t usually an issue!

  18. Jerome Eberharter says:

    Strong work! What is the grade/rating of the galvanized metal? Thanks!

    • homesteadonomics says:

      thanks Jerome…. the flashing on the corners is just standard trim flashing that you’d use for roofing and weather applications. I think it’s 28 ga or something like that..
