We started by building the base. We wanted the dog house to have a bit of a front porch, so that was important when thinking and measuring out the house frame.

Using a jigsaw, we cut out the holes from the plywood to create a seamless floor.

To save time and hassle, we stained the floor before framing up the house.

We then Framed the house and roof. There are some added braces needed for the barn door and multiple roof panels.

Using bead board paneling, we cut the front and back first. Cutting the door opening was needed before attaching the front panel.

We added a support beam to the roof before adding the roof panels. We used one 12 foot roof panel and cut it into smaller pieces for the roof.

We then added the door hardware along with the door. The door piece is the cut out piece of bead board painted and glued to a larger piece of plywood. We then used a left over piece of paneling to create the "BIRDIE" sign.
Its ready for a dog bed and your favorite four legged friend.
