I was inspired to use leftover materials from projects long finished and to include some sustainable features such as passive solar and rooftop photovoltaic and a roof design with rain barrel water capture type feature. A survey of dog owners led me to include a circulating fan to keep the interior comfortably cool. I added some cedar edging for insect and rodent control. All but the solar panels were purchased in ...

Redwood Cabin was inspired by the first dog I have yet to call my own. I tried to imagine what would be cozy for a family dog to curl up inside of, after a long day of getting pets. Keeping the owners in mind, I made the roof detachable for easier cleaning. Redwood Cabin will provide a warm, cozy space for your dog to lay their head and dream of squirrels.

We built this doghouse with our family dog in mind. The house has a slanted roof to keep the sun off, an open doorway to make it inviting and a flower box as an added touch. We used mostly recycled materials and had the roofing supplies donated by Umbrella Roofing. This was a family affair. We had multiple design changes before we came up with the final piece. Our family loves it and hopes yours will too.

The attempt was to build as ECO Friendly as possible, and aside from screws & nails and some trim, we have a doghouse utilizing repurposed materials! And since we used all repurposed materials, we have also chosen to donate our $500 building materials stipend to the Eagle Valley Humane Society.
