Thank you for the design! We adjusted the size to suit our two dogs and made the roof removable (by installing two extra cross-beams instead of nailing to the frame) more and photos >>
Hi, I'm fifteen and I have been building this dog kennel from your plans. It's been such a great summer holiday project. more and photos >>
I used your dog house design and it was fantastic! It is easy to modify the plans to fit individual needs! I wanted the house to be more and photo >>

Here is how we modified the Build Eazy dog house to accommodate our very large dogs (2). First we needed the dog house to be much bigger and have an opening large enough for our greyhounds more and photos>>
Hi! Thanks for the Dog Kennel Plan. We are sending some pictures about our Dog Kennel made with your plan. We will finish it with the dog's name and some paintings. see photos >>>
Thanks for the doghouse plans. I modified them a little as the pictures will show. Pine clap board siding, black shingles, white with blue trim. This was a great weekend project even if you are a beginner to woodworking just take your time... more and photos >>>

Hi there, Thank you so much for the dog house plans. They were very easy to follow and modify.
As my dog is just a little gal I reduced the size of the project, Added a shake roof and cedar trim. more >> See photo
The instructions were great! materials were all easy to find, my girlfriend and I managed to build it in about 6 hours, the only modification we made was the addition of an asphalt roof, a solid plywood floor and a weather resistant dog door rather than the open door. more >> See photo Jesse P.
Hi I used your plan but decided that asphalt bricks are better than wooden roof.
Lucianna -our Labrador- really enjoys it. I painted it red as our football team Olympiakos!!!

Hi, We just thought we would send in some photos of the dog house we built using your plans as a base for our project with some variations. Changed the flooring to a bit better timber, shorten it slightly, added a hinged roof and used weatherboard for the roof. My wife and I are really happy with it and Astro loves it already. This dog house is built strong and we can see it lasting a long time. Thanks. Brett, Rachel & Astro See photos
Hello , We just want to share the dog house that my fiancee and I build. Thanks for the building plans, we added the hinges so we can access the house to clean it easier.
Sincerely, Chanpen and Ryan See photo
Just finished the dog house with your plans. I had to adjust a little as we have three large dogs, but it was very easy. Although I made a few mistakes, I think I did fairly well it being my second project following plans.

I just want to say thanks to all the people on Buildeazy. The project was rally easy to make following the instructions.
The Dog Kennel is huge and comfortable (I think).
There is room enough for 2 medium size dogs and more.

This was easy to build (made even easier with a mitre saw) and is so huge I even added another small compartment in the side for the cat. Wouldn't use it though. Wonder why?!
Exactly what I needed! This is how I envisioned how to build a dog house... Thanks for the help.
Great thanks for the help, just what I needed, TOP MARKS TO YOU.
