DIY Doghouse with Porch

This post is sponsored by Build Something!

I have teamed up with Build Something to bring you an upgrade to Fido’s residence!! I love the little porch on this dog house and I now think every dog house needs one! Lol!! As winter is approaching my little furballs were going to need a place to keep warm…in south Texas winters aren’t all that cold, but it can still get chilly on a few nights so I built a doghouse for our orphan pups, that’s what I call them!! We didn’t adopt them, they just live here and won’t leave so, you know!! Lol!! Get the plans to build your own DIY doghouse to keep your furry friend warm this winter!

The dogs wouldn’t go near the doghouse while I was trying to get them to model for me, but I figure if it gets cold enough they will be begging to go inside!! Lol!!

I was able to build this cute little doghouse for a tiny bit over a hundred bucks, and when I had shopped online for one before deciding to build one, there was nothing really I could buy for around 100 bucks… besides those DogLoos and they wouldn’t fit my four pups in them! Plus it really only took me a day to build…and that was all by myself! Woohoo!! MY kind of project!! Annnndddd, one more thing, you can easily customize the look to match your own home so it’s not an eyesore sticking out in your yard!! Haha!
