DIY Dog Houses – Dog House Plans –

Doodles are really inside type dogs but that does not mean they don’t love also spending time outside and there is nothing better to a dog then a nice deck with a fancy dog house to call HOME! A nice place to rest, cool off while playing or dry off after a romp in the mud, rain or snow.

Building a Dog House

Saltbox Roof Dog House
This is very possibly my favorite dog house plan of all the ones showcased here.  It begins with a fairly basic box with a standard pitched roof but what makes it unique is that the roof is extended on one side to create a covered porch. There’s a certain economy of design to it that is appealing. Another twist: the doorway is located on what is normally considered the side of a dog house. It’s also offset from the center of the wall which makes for a more sheltered interior. The drawings and instructions for this plan are also top notch. By Kevin Ireland From CornerHardware.com

Harry and Sal’s Dog House – Very cool looking A-frame dog house where the roof extends almost all the way to the ground.  This design could be fairly easily adapted for any size dog. The roof is made from Scandinavian pine cladding with a metal ridge cover and a weatherproof “sarking” underlay. You’ll have the dogs barking under the sarking with this beauty! Note that dimensions for this house are all metric.

Industrial Strength Dog House

Industrial Strength Dog House

Industrial Strength Dog House – Here’s a massive house that could withstand a hurricane. The interior framing is very beefy, featuring 2X4 studs and trusses with a ridge pole.  It sports an attractive front porch, composite barn sheathing painted red, and an asphalt roof.  I like this comment by the owner: By the time all was said and done it was no longer “the dog house” it was the “chateau de dogue” and the resulting structure weighs about 900-lbs and is the size of your average college dorm room. Now, that’s a dog house!

How to Build a DogHouse – Nice looking doghouse with a rustic look thanks to the rough sawn pine boards used on the roof.  The author provides some helpful safety tips about using pressure-treated lumber and offers suggestions for sealing and finishing the wood if you opt not to use pressure-treated material.  The plans provide a decent set of drawings with dimensions although novice woodworkers may find the instructions a bit lacking compared to some of the other plans listed here.

4-H Dog House – This dog house plan is part of a publication titled: “The care of dogs and puppies”, which is a worthwhile (and free) reference source for dog owners. According to the authors, the house is designed to meet these basic requirements: It should be warm in winter, cool in summer, draft free, dry at all times, easy to clean, have a sun deck, provide shade and encourage exercise. It is a conventional pitched roof design with a twist: the pitch is not very steep, making it suitable for the dog to lounge on top of the roof. Inside the house is a removable partition that can be kept in during the winter to provide a snug sleeping compartment or taken out during the summer to make the house cooler and provide more sleeping space. The house has a removable side flap and roof for easier cleaning. I like the design of this house except that it is not insulated; also it is almost impossible to discern the dimensions in the drawing.

Build a mini ranch house for your pooch

Build a mini ranch house for your pooch

Build a mini ranch house for your pooch – Here’s a stylish ranch-style doghouse a beginning-to-intermediate woodworker can make for about $200. It’s made from three sheets of plywood and big enough for a large dog. Redwood lattice battens and a shed roof create the rustic ranch-house look. A little arbor of 2-by-2s above the door adds interest and provides shade, and a removable asphalt-shingle roof makes cleaning inside easy.

Dog-House-450x350

Georgia-Pacific Dog House – Plans for a medium-sized dog house that can be easily built by a moderately experienced carpenter over the course of a weekend.  The design features a conventional pitched roof with a matching pitched entrance. The structure is made from 2″x4″ studs and plywood (Georgia-Pacific’s brand of course) with pressure-treated lumber for the raised base (make sure you cover that material so the dog can’t chew on it). All in all, a simple but functional dog house.

Removable Partition Dog House – A double cavity house with a removable partition panel between. Includes a lift-off roof held in place by hook fasteners and a swing-up back door to facilitate cleaning. PDF plans provide dimensions and plywood cutting layouts but no assembly instructions. Free plan from North Dakota State University.
