How to build a dog house using fence pickets that were left over from our picket fence. I cut the dog ears off at the end of each picket for the roof, so, it measured just under 6 foot in length and about 4 foot in width. The height was about 4 foot as well. These houses are under a lean-to that extends about 5 feet out as well.
PICKETS = 50 to 60
2X4's = 6 TO 8 depending on dimensions
NAILS = 2 per picket on the outside walls and 3 per picket for the roof and flooring.
SCREWS = I used screws for the roof supports so I would jack up the vertical 2×4's.
