Dog Cabin

Log Cabin for Dogs

If you have a pile of wood left over from your log cabin build, why not use it for a log cabin for your dog?

No self-respecting pooch should be without his or her very own log cabin kennel. After all, man’s best friend certainly deserves nothing but the best and his master will surely have great fun designing and building it.

Dog Log CabinMy dog cabin is going to sit outside the back door on paving slabs. The kennel sits on 4×2″ pressure treated timber bearers that were left over from building my log cabin roof.

The floor of the dog cabin is the same as the tongue and groove boarding I used in my cabin. The sides are made of 10mm pine tongue and groove; any cheap boarding would have been fine but hey I wanted it to look nice for my furry friend.

Dog KennelThe curved entrance was marked out by using a large plastic planting pot as a template.

The roof is actually made from pressure treated gravel boarding surplus from a fencing job covered in an old off-cut of shed felt.

So there we have it. A mostly recycled or reused deluxe dog cabin.
