Homemade Dog House
I used mostly scrap material to build a cozy 3-ft. high, 6 by 4-ft. dog house in our garage. It keeps our dog warm in cold weather. The garage wall forms one side of the dog house, and a commercial “doggie door”, consisting of 2 clear plastic flaps, leads outside the wall to a step and a plywood windbreak. The doggie door came with an extra panel that can be slid on outside the door to lock it up.
    Inside the garage, there’s a plywood door on the front side of the dog house along with 2 glass windows.
    A pair of 1 by 4-ft. fiberglass electric piglet heat mats are screwed to the garage wall, one above the other, to provide heat inside the dog house. There’s a big pillow inside, and the hinged plywood lid on top of the dog house opens for easy cleaning.
