I made this dog house out of shiplap cladding that was left over from the build of my workshop.

I sold this dog house on eBay to someone who lives locally, and I even got to meet the dog who would be using it which was a wonderful experience.

    1. Haha thanks Archie. Luckily I was taught to make the most of what I’ve got! Small but does the job

  1. Great woodworking channel! I follow quite a few of the American woodworkers on YouTube which are also great but it’s nice to see a good hobby woodworker from the UK with a workshop that looks more like mine! I think your videos are really nicely paced with no nonsense padding them out! looking forward to more.

  2. So funny that you took that much care making a dog house and you don’t have a dog, I can’t stop smiling!!! I’m currently building a dog house for my two Labs and I’ve gotten to the point of making the roof, not knowing how to “build a roof” I naturally turned to YouTube & I believe you are the only one to really say how you made your a-frame roof, angles, etc. so thank you! I look forward to watching your other videos!

  3. 1 thing everyone forgets when building a dog house is insulating it. It’s very important especially if you’re going to have an outside dog because it gets cold at night, Being in just a wooden box doesn’t protect you much from the cold, but having it insulated keeps the warmth from the dog warm. Also, When it’s warm outside the insulation keeps the cooler air from at night and in the morning hours inside the doghouse during the hot parts of the day so your dog stays cooler. I believe at Lowe’s and Home Depot they sell those big boards of like Styrofoam insulation you could use that wouldn’t be harmful to your dog breathing in any particles because it’s a solid piece. You wouldn’t build a house with no insulation, so why would you for your dog?

    1. Dogs don’t need insulation! They have a fur coat! It’s only a recent thing that dogs have been allowed inside the house

  4. The way this was built so perfect and neat,man you might as well build an add-on kitchen ,toilet & bath for that dog when you get one,well done…!
