How To Make A Dog House From The Boards With Their Own Hands
For a beloved four-legged friend you need a good home. And you can make a dog box from the boards with your own hands.
For its manufacture will need pine boards 3 centimeters thick. At first, the boards are planed on a planer, then they are driven through the surface gauge to achieve the same thickness along the entire length. After that, according to the pre-calculated dimensions of the booth, the boards are cut off for the bottom of the booth. However, their length should be strictly the same, as shown in the photo.
If the length of the boards will vary, in the future to get a flat wall of the booth will not work. In order to avoid cracks, at the edges of the board, a quarter is chosen equal to half the board thickness. On the bottom edge, as seen in the photo below
bars of 45 by 45 millimeters are located. These bars play the role of fixing the bottom and in addition to this raise the booth above the ground. This is necessary so that the bottom does not freeze through in winter, does not flood with rain, does not rot. In addition, in this way, there will be less dust and dirt in the booth.
To the ends of the bottom screw boards, which form the side walls of the booth. They are fastened with conventional wood screws. Drill holes for them before screwing them in. The hole diameter is about 3 millimeters. If this is not done, then the edge of the board, when tightening the screw, will almost certainly crack.
After assembling the side walls assemble the back wall of the booth. There is nothing difficult in this, just the boards tightly join one to the other and fasten with self-tapping screws.
For the slope of the roof back side walls booth sawing at the right angle. The front wall is attached in the same way.
After that, proceed to the manufacture of the roof of the booth. It is made like walls. Boards are laid tightly to one another and attached with screws to the end of the walls.
The roof of the booth is made on the basis of the width of the booth plus ten centimeters on each side. The length of the roof is also calculated. Such protrusions allow rainwater to flow down the booth, not outside the wall. After the walls are built, a closed box is obtained.
To the dog could get into the booth you need to cut Laz. Make it best round and at some distance from the center of the front wall. The choice of this form is determined by the goal of preserving heat inside the booth. The location of the manhole for the dog is not a cent due to the fact that in winter it will hide from the snow and cold wind in the closed part of the booth. During the summer heat, the animal will sleep closer to the manhole, where the fresh air and coolness. In addition, the manhole should be at a height from the ground equal to the length of the dog’s legs. This is to ensure that the booth was as clean as possible. If the manhole is at the floor level, all the garbage from the yard will eventually be dragged into the booth. Also, the high position of the manhole reduces the draft that can occur in a booth during a strong wind.
Having a booth, outside it is covered with a layer of primer and then painted. Applying a primer is necessary in order for the paint layer to lay down more evenly, since it is rather difficult to paint the cut wood qualitatively without first applying the primer. The roof is covered with slate, tin.
