The project

 

We made this dog kennel using recycled pallet timber, Colorbond offcuts, old fence pails and plywood. The kennel was finished off with a small solar light and stainless steel dog bowl.

That looks fantastic! :-).

I like the recessed doggy bowl idea.

Your dog has a beautiful piece of real estate - but he looks unhappy?

 

Our dog has a less impressive residence. It's in a covered area where a gable roof was not needed. The problem - was me - I tried to make it too 'practical.'

Marine ply and I made shelves for storing dry food, leads, toys etc.

 

In the end he refuses to live there and has it simply became a storage area.

However, when it was for time for walkies - he would run inside and try and hide in the far corner and it was almost impossible to reach him.

So I put removable hinges and a handle on the front. He was shocked one day when the wall 'disappeared' and was detained.

 

Gotcha!Gotcha!

Hi @Noyade

 

That's a very nice and practical dog hideaway. Too bad that your dog has realized that there is no place to hide.
