So this time, I raised the whole structure way up off the ground to allow air to move underneath, and to allow for yet another place for dogs to hide. They'll love it next summer, it'll be great for shade! I had all these logs lying around, so started with those and leveled out the whole thing.
Dog Condo #1 was way more of a fiasco. Now, a few years later and the dogs are a bit more mellow, so I don't have anyone stealing my tools, gloves or eating insulation. Then again, Ripper is in the other pen so that was 99.9% of the problem back then.
I don't know how 70lb Harris fits in this tiny doghouse! Where are his gangly legs?!?!
Jack stretches... like they actually did something all day. Ha!
Framing this masterpiece. I really don't know what the heck I'm doing, but it's sturdy!
Next stage: insulating! That is not the final roof - I'm planning on having a ramp that goes up to the slightly slanted roof so they can zoom up there and get a good view of the dog yard!
Of course Gracie is the first to check it out. Hm, maybe she never got out at all.
This is inside the condo after I was done for the day. Not easy to get a picture of the whole thing when every dog who comes inside has to be right in my face. Plus they were super hyper and needed a run! Which they all got since they were so patient all day... :)
