I figured I would share pics of the shed/slash dog house I built last fall.The overall dimension is 16'x24'. My wife and I did all of the construction on it minus the concrete work. We were able to complete the entire project in four days minus electrical and insulation. The hardest part of the whole project was shingling as the roof trusses were a 12/12 pitch I designed to accommodate the 8'x24' loft. One of the most important reason we built it was to provide shelter for our two 90lb Labs. In a couple of the photos you can see where the two 10x10 kennels are connected on the southern wall into which each dog as a heavy duty dog door to allow them access to their sleeping and eating compartments which works about to each of them having 2'x8' of sheltered interior space. The next project for the shed will be to install and plumb a small propane furnace for heat for when I am tinkering on my toys during our cold NoDak winter days.
