Doggy Condo out of Scrap Wood
« on: December 21, 2015, 10:03:28 AM »
Building an Octagon shaped Gazebo can be a bit wastefull with wood usage and the plans i followed to build it were way off in what they specified as needed on the materials list. After i finished the gazebo i had quite a bit of wood left, some of which i am using to build a swing set for the grandkids, and some of which i used to build this two story Doggy Condo for Brandi and Benji ( also know as the Fur Balls).

Winds up they love it. It has a ramp that goes to second floor. The second floor has linoleum for its flooring. Three doors make for easy access, cleaning, and feeding. Overall it is 8 feet wide, 4 feet deep and about 6 feet tall. I will be adding electric lights and cooling fan when i wire the gazebo in the spring.

I was going to say either Scoobie Do,101 dalmations, or lady and the tramp  to answer magic man.  Actually Lynn may not be too far off. Benji ( the darker color one), actually sits in front of the TV and watches it for hours as if he really understood what goes one. He is a panic. Most dogs hate vacuums. He barks at the vacuum a couple of times, then jumps on carpet attachment and rides it back and forth as if it were a carnival ride.

The two of them are actually brother and sister from the same litter. They are Bichon Yorkie mixes. Real hiper, but extremely lovable and great with everyone, especially kids.

If they go to the second floor they should be able to see the TV screen that is going into the gazebo.
