Fancy Dog House
What makes for a fancy dog house? Well... for starters, consider a solid wood
structure with cedar shingles and siding, a window with shutters, an internal
wall for greater protection from the elements, and a covered deck for enhanced
lounging possibilities. Then throw in a heater/AC unit to help your hound stay
cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Of course, the walls, floor, and
roof should be insulated using at least 2" thick foam.
the doorway, a heavy-duty vinyl flap may suffice but for a truly fancy dog
house, how about a hinged two-way door with a personalized (dogalized?) name
plate. Other decorative touches that can really spruce up a dog house include
fake (but realistic looking) mail boxes, chimneys, wind vanes, and other
knick-knacks that attach to the outside of the house.
