This stylish ranch-style dog house is made from three sheets of plywood and is big enough for a large dog. Redwood lattice battens and a shed roof create the rustic ranch-house look.
A little arbor of 2-by-2s above the door adds interest and provides shade, and a removable asphalt-shingle roof makes cleaning inside easy.
