Our 2016 doghouses!

Our 2016 doghouses are trickling in!

Here’s the first one — this classic beauty was made by students at Algonquin College in the   Building Construction Technicians course. The plywood interior and front and back is a Luan ½” plywood. The sides are made with a Canexel product trimmed in knotty pine. The roof is standard 3 tab asphalt shingle. Many thanks to Tim Rissler for hearing about our fundraiser and making the donation!



The next doghouse — a pine board-and-batten doghouse with a deck– is the brainchild of the very talented Ross McLean of Stonefield Acres Market Garden in Vankleek Hill.


The next doghouse, by Bee Meadow’s  carpenter  Luc Lavoie, is a log cabin (complete with chinking)!

Luc’s concept plans are below!


We have a contemporary entry, currently under construction by Dan Maxwell of JDM Maintenance and Painting. It’s going to look something like this — but made of reclaimed oak. (Photo credit to Barkitecture.) Seriously, how cool is that?

Jacob Morgan, who made this doghouse (complete with rooftop herb garden) at our last Homes with Woofs, is working on one with a green living roof AND a gazebo! We hope to have pictures up soon! (Yep, that’s Jake.)

Update: And here it is! Imagine the roof with plants!

Then there’s this: a doghouse inspired by a train station! Courtesy of Dave Robertson Fine Woodworking, this is bound to be the “best in choo!” All aboard!
