Today on Modern Builds I'm building my second modern dog house. This one is a bit more appropriate for the average sized dog compared to my last dog house.

  1. Wasn’t sold on the colour at first but at the end, against all the timber, it looks great! Great project as always Mike

  2. Wood glue doesn’t work well on paint. Most people recommend scraping pant off before trying to glue to the wood. I’m sure the nails will suffice though.

    1. I was going to say the same thing. Otherwise a very nice build.

      Mike, I love how simple your builds are, in that they use basic tools that most people have access to. Please keep it up.

  3. doggouse with red oak floors and a solar porch light….nice!🖒💥 what about the wondow and blind??🤔😉😆haha j.k.
    foreal that is a kick a#$ doghouse nice work Mike!🖒🖒

  4. Just a suggestion…
    Next time you make a dog house try to locate the doorway in one side of the structure (off center) so the dog can hide behind the large side wall so be protected from wind when inside.
    Overall a luxurious dog house well done.

  5. i love this!!!! i gonna try to make one for my dog here in Colombia… but i dont know all the mesures and in the written article dont show all!!!! help because i can try to make it but i need to pay for some one cut the wood

    1. Alicia Villegas You easily adjust the measurements to fit your dog, also if you hardware stores there luke home depot or menards they will cut it for free

  6. First off, this was a awesome build! great job. I’m building 2 smaller versions for my 2 yorkshire terriers. I wanted to know the height difference between the front and back of the dog house? I also wanted to know where to find the solar panel?? Again, thank you for this awesome build!

    1. I got the solar light from home depot, they’re the kind that go along a sidewalk. i dont remember the exact difference, it may be in the video, i think to was between 6 and 12 inches

    1. fancy build materials like plywood and pallets? haha, these are pretty cheap material, you can get them anywhere!

  7. So I am almost finished building one at my place. Where on earth did you find cedar shingles? Awesome channel by the way.

    1. Right on! I got mine at my local Home Depot… I know a lot of places have quit carrying them, though because of the fire risk. My local Lowe’s didn’t carry them.

    2. Yea here in the Midwest they are wanting to sell them by the pallet. Perhaps I will try another route. Would love to see some kitchen tricks you know. Have been going round and round on cheap kitchen remodel ideas and can’t seem to commit to one.

  8. This is a decorative dog house, not one for everyday use. The doors of the dog house need to be located on the side and the house has to (edit) have two parts. It also should have some isolation.

    1. I was thinking the same way. Dog houses should have good insulation as well. Imagine living in a small space like that and its summer or winter. Maybe it will work for a 16yo diy project though 🙂
