Lexi-Lou and Ranger-Roo are Corey Hosick’s German Shepard fur babies. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them. So he built them the ultimate DIY dog house shelter to not only protect them from the elements but to provide the creature comforts of home. Here is his process.
The frame of the DIY dog house is made from two 4w9 I beams crossed with 3×5-in. and 2×2-in. square tubing with brackets I made to then tie in the wood for the build up. Using old scraps was challenging on some levels due to warped boards. I then used 4 PT 4×4’s for the uprights and then jointed my horizontal beams to fit on top of my four posts.
