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) for easier cleanup inside.
We kept the cutout for the door so that we can keep out any neighborhood cats, squirrels, raccoons, etc that may want to nest on the dog bed inside.
We still need to weatherproof the roof ridge, but there’s no huge rush here yet.
Because we wanted taller sides, but not a very tall dog house, the roof angle was adjusted to 60 degrees. And, as you can see, we left the bottom plate so the door has something to stop it and the bed doesn’t work it’s way out.
Hi, I’m fifteen and I have been building this dog kennel from your plans. It’s been such a great summer holiday project.
I built it for my Irish Staffordshire bull terrier. I found these plans very useful and straight forward, but my dad and I modified the size to 700mm x 1050mm.
We also used 34mm by 34mm pieces of timber for the frame and feather edge board for the roof. It took us just under a week off and on to complete what with having to wait for the paint to dry and the right weather conditions.
Thanks Sean Williams
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 insulated,
so I added insulation to the outer walls and an additional outer shell so that the dog could not chew on the insulation.
I also had extra shingles I wanted to use so I did 1 x 6s on the sides instead of the roof.
As expected the dog house weighs more than originally intended. It takes 4 grown men just to lift it.
Completion dimensions were 51.5 x 34 outside and 48×32 inside. My friends call it the dog house of doom because its so heavy.
They said its a monument to the seriousness of dog house building and the frightening power that one women with a miter saw can wield.
This project took me 1.5 days to from start to finish. Approximately 16 hours of labor.

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 to get in without having to crawl or bend. They don’t do that.
Their legs are like stilts with no give. We used a packing skid (found at a hardware store for nothing) as the base and filled it with cedar chips to keep the bottom of the house warm.
We wanted the house to match our custom fence so battens were added to the side and the roof got a cedar shake roof. Because it is so big, I suggested to the hubby to add a window. So I went to the local antique mall and found a photograph framed in this oval frame.
The frame was then used as a window after it was painted and inserted into the premeasured hole. I also added our dogs names “Lola and Finch”.
We also added faux stone to the “foundation” to match our retaining walls and then painted the whole thing to match our custom fence.
It is fabulous. Both dogs can get in and are safe and warm.
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.
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.
Also a tip; if you use clap board siding; prime the knots with primer and paint one coat of paint on both sides before assembly. This step will help the paint to last longer. When nailing the clap board on make sure the rough side is the outside exposed to the weather. Remember the smooth side in. This applies to any wooden siding you will save yourself time and money over the years on paint and painting.
Works every time
Hope you enjoy the pictures,

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.
I also used plywood for the floor as well as a 2×2 square framed base to allow the addition of a sheet of styrene insulation.
Thanks again for great plan 🙂
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 a asphalt roof, a solid plywood floor and a weather resistant dog door rather than the open door.
Also because the furing strips aren’t true 2×2’s the lengthwise cut “sidewall top plates” should be 45″ or so.
Thank You 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!!!

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
Hello , We just want to share the dog house that my fiancee and I build. Thanks for the building plans, we added the hindges so we can access the house to clean it easier.

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 Buildeasy.
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.
