The big night is coming soon — June 12th, election day, an evening where you can put your candidate in the doghouse and then swing by City Hall to see ours!
Everyone’s racing to get ready, but here’s what we have so far. Aren’t they cool? The first one is by Cardel Homes, designed for Ottawa Sens Fans!
Then there’s Matt Viau’s doghouse. Matt owns Modern Carpentry and has built a three season doghouse out of barnboards and an old patio door. It reminds us of a Vancouver boathouse. Super cool.
Still to come: Vala Home Improvements’ recycled TV console; Bespokegan’s barn with galvanized steel accents; Steve Ardington’s contemporary doghouse with rooftop garden and trellis; Fourth Wall Interior’s canvas/maple teepee; DS Plumbing’s plumbing- themed doghouse; Minto’s traditional style doghouse with sleeping quarters and patio, and Jacob Morgan’s reclaimed wood/log cabin which will have its own herb garden.
What’s exciting is that we’re getting such great media coverage. The Ottawa Citizen/Montreal Gazette ran stories today; Ottawa Life wrote a story about us, and we’ll be on CTV Morning next Wednesday at 9:40 AM.
Global News was at our office on Friday taking pictures of our dogs with our doghouses and plans to film some of our builders on Wednesday with a view to running a story (hopefully before the event; if not, shortly after). And we’ll be on CTV with our celebrity judge Leanne Cusack the day of the event too. Fingers crossed it all goes well!
