DIY Doggie Mansion
(Dog House Under the Stairs)
I have to make sure to give all the credit for this to my man for this! This was all his idea, design, and hard work! I had sent him a few under the stairs dog houses a few months ago because I thought it was an awesome idea, and not to mention a total SPACE SAVER!
Well last week he decided he wanted to do it, and Friday he cut a hole in our wall!! Not going to lie...I was scared at first! Not that I didn't have faith in him but... It was a BIG hole!
FYI..You never know what you might find if you cut a hole in your wall.. We found an empty pack of cigarettes, a mountain dew bottle, and a large Pepsi cup. Pretty mild but still wasn't expecting to find anything!
First he found all of the studs, and measured out a perfect square for the entrance. It isn't pretty (I was worried about that part) but he assured me you would never see his cuts.
If you notice there are some wires showing, there is a closet on the other side of that wall, we also have our TV mounted on the this wall and the wiring goes into that closet. So Travis had to do a little rearranging of wires so they wouldn't be in the way.
This is my crazy guy inside his hole, doing some re-wiring (You should have seen him getting in and out of there!)
Next was the removing of the 2x4 in the middle. He had to make a trip to Lowes, to get some pieces cut to frame the door.
We also hung drywall, and put down peel and stick tile for the floor. These dogs have it made!
Here is a picture of both my boys having a little fun in our new little room!
To finish it off, all we needed was some trim!
We still need to paint the inside, and thinking of putting a little sign with the dogs names above it :)
What do you think?? I LOVE it! Can't tell you how proud I am to have such an amazingly handy man in my life!
Obviously our dogs love it too!!
Bo and Hank both have plenty of room to relax!
Check back next week for something new!
