Our puppy is spending her first day outside while we are at work. We figured she'd like it better then sitting in her crate all day. We have a fenced in backyard and she has her crate to keep the rain and sun off if need be. Obviously we don't want to lug it in and out of the house everyday so Project Doghouse is a go. I think I'm going to build it out of cedar fencing like I made my Adirondack chairs out of last year. Also, I'd like to build a bench version of the chairs for my wife for mother's day.
