Revolving House Keeps Dog Out Of Wind
Murray Crich doesn't have to worry about winds blowing rain or snow into his dog's house anymore. With the help of a Lazy Susan bottom and a wind vane top, the house always faces out of the wind.
"I made a carousel out of a front spindle from an old car," explains Crich. "The bottom of the dog run is concrete, so I just cemented it in. I mounted a steel plate to the bottom of the dog house and bolted that to the spindle."
The weather vane is a piece of plywood mounted to the doghouse roof with a brace. It is further secured by a clamp that runs around the dog house and the brace.
"It takes a little bit of training with the dogs, locking it in place at first until they get used to it," says Crich. "When it gets windy, it will spin right around. The dogs don't mind, and it keeps them dry. People say it looks strange, but it works."
