The search for the best dog house


Marc (my husband) and I have finally decided to start the renovation of our little house. We’re still in the planning stage though, and we’re yet to get rid of the unnecessary stuff littered all over the place. Another main thing on our agenda: find (or make) the perfect dog house for Sheero.

The dog house I have in mind is not the ordinary type that you can dump in your garden. Sheero is an “inside the house” dog, and I really don’t want to let her sleep outside (she looks like a dirty rag when kept outside the house too long). But Marc didn’t want her dog house clashing with our planned Modern Mexican decor motif. So our best choice: get a customized dog house.

I searched Google for “custom dog house” in order to have an idea of how much it would cost. Well, let’s just say… Forget it. Haha. The cost of luxury dog houses is more than triple the cost of our planned house renovation. We’ll just make the dog house by ourselves.

In my unsuccessful search, I did stumble upon sites that show the incredible lengths rich people will go for their dogs. Here’s a screenshot of the site (La Petite Maison Playhouses):

The details of their dog houses are just incredible. I think these types of dog houses are way beyond my crafty skills, but I might be able to come up with something less luxurious. Probably a mini version of a Philippine nipa hut (bahay kubo).

But for now, it’s back to the drawing board…

    I was wondering if you could send me sort-of instructions for how to build the doggy house. I was looking for a summer project.
