You love your pup but don’t love when he sheds? Build an outdoor house for your dog that will keep him dry and warm and your house fur-free. Follow the steps below to create a customized dog house that fits your family’s personality .Different dogs have different needs, but almost every dog will need the following: an insulated, dry space that he can call home whether it’s hot or cold.
Pay attention to these factors when building a dog house.Think about insulation. Remember that the base builds the foundation for the whole house and creates a space of air between the ground and the floor that acts as insulation for the house. A house without a base is cooler during the cold months and warmer during the hot months.
Consider the specific elements that might affect the base in your outdoor environment. If it rains often in your area, make sure to use a non-toxic, water-resistant material and build the base high enough off of the ground to prevent flooding.
Dog houses are fairly simple projects and can be usually be completed by someone with just basic building skills. They’ll take anywhere from half a day to a few days to complete and can easily be done in under $100.
