We will make a harness from a bar for the floor of the booth, we will need 3 bars 115 cm each, and 2 bars 92 cm each. We fasten the frame of the bars as shown in the figure with self-tapping screws (100 mm).
Cut a plywood sheet 125 x 92 cm, fasten it to the frame with self-tapping screws (50 mm).
We will produce two side frames for a doghouse, for each frame we will need 2 bars of 125 cm each, and 3 bars of 58 cm each. We assemble the frames and fasten them to the floor of the booth as shown in the drawings.
Now we will make a frame for the back wall of the booth, the frame consists of 3 bars 58 cm long and 2 bars 115 cm long. We fasten the frame with self-tapping screws to the floor and to the adjacent side frames.
In the same way, you need to assemble the front frame, in the front frame you need to provide a place under the entrance to the booth with a width of 38 cm. The figure shows the wiring diagram of the front frame. All frames are attached to each other and to the bottom frame with self-tapping screws.
We are starting to manufacture a roof for a doghouse. In this construction, a gable roof is used, for its manufacture, you will need to cut out of a bar, 8 stop lengths of 76 cm. As the roof ridge, we use a 125 cm long timber.
We assemble the frame of the roof of the booth as shown in the diagram.
Getting to trim the side frames. We cut out of plywood with an electric jigsaw for the wall of the booth, in the front wall we gently mark and cut out the inlet for our pet.
In the same way, we cut out from plywood two panels for the roof of the booth, the dimensions of each panel are 125 x 77 cm. We fasten the panels to the rafters with screws.
To prevent the roof of the booth from getting wet, it needs to be covered with a covering material, you can use sheeting, shingles or roofing felt.
Dog box can be painted on the outside with any paint for outdoor work.
