    They are pretty much the same design as the others. the main changes are a tilted to the roof and hinges so the stays up very easily. I also round the doors and did some minor changes inside, not sure if you will be able to spot them or not. Any other ideas for upgrades are appreciated

  2. Look's damn good...may be some felt and shingel's to protect the roof from rain snow heat.

    those are the ones i build and run the hinge on the back. should hold a bulldog comfortably. mostly depends on your opening size.

    Take those plans and make the back and front the sides and the sides the front and back with tshe door to one side and adjust measurements and you will have alot nicer dog houses. I can show some pictures of mine and the hold bulldogs and coonhounds of different sizes fine.

    Not talking about the two room plans. I'm talking about the one sheet plywood plans. The way they are built from the plans posted all the wind goes to the back but if turned like I said resembles the two room houses and helps block wind.

    I used pretty much the same plans but modified them to suit me. lol My son had a litter of pups that needed to go out and it isnt finished yet. I still need to caulk and seal it, wrap it in aluminum coil stock, (cause I dont like to paint every few years) make a roof cap out of 26 gauge galanized sheet metal and put aluminum anlgle on the doorway and any place they might chew on. I used foam insulation board in the walls and on the roof section were they sleep. Winter hasnt been that bad. A couple of nights in the single digits and they seemed warm and cozy with plenty of straw. I'll load some pics..........
