Oscar “Winston” Taylor III
I wanted to build my best friend “Oscar” his own house. Even though he’s an inside dog, I figured he should have a place of his own while he’s out playing in the yard. I started researching for DIY Dog House Plans online. I wanted to make sure I had everything I needed before starting my project. While researching dog house plans, I soon realized there was more to building a dog house than I thought.

Oscar decided to go with a rock dog house to match his dad’s house. My house is a 2 story river rock house. My wife says it looks like a gingerbread house.

  1. Wow, I love these dog House designs. The dog log mansion with hot tub is out of this world! what a great idea to offer plans to make these awesome dog houses for our furry friends.

    My dog is an indoor dog too but he sure loves to spend time outside in the summer. I am considering building him a little house but I think I will skip the hot tub for now.

    1. Hi Dave,

      Those are just some designs I came across researching DIY dog house plans. The dog house plans that come with Ted’s Woodworking are not the same designs in the images.

      You can easily find plans for other dog house plans online. There are a lot more designs to choose from. I never realized how creative you could be with a dog house.

      I originally wanted to build a replica of Snoopy’s dog house but settled on the rock dog house instead. I had the rock and leftover shingles so it made sense to build it.

      I love the dog log mansion image too! Who ever thought of adding the hot tub gets an A for their humor. The dog sure looks like he’s having a good time.

      Thanks for your comment Dave,


  2. Very well thought out. I have never thought or dreamed that dog houses could be so luxurious. For someone who does not know much about woodworking, if I decided to make one of those on your list, being a novice can it be done with ease? Thanks again for the great article

    1. Hello Nathan,

      The dog houses in the images above are for more advanced woodworkers. The dog house plans you get with Ted’s Woodworking are not the same dog house plans I featured in the article.

      I only highlighted those dog houses to show my readers the variety of designs you can choose to build. As a novice woodworker. You will be able to build a professional quality dog house.

      Ted’s Woodworking dog house plans come with step-by-step illustrated instructions with a complete parts list. Even a guy with two left thumbs could build a dog house with Ted’s Woodworking plans.

      Thanks for your question and comment Nathan,


  3. Oh my goodness, what a great selection here…and for the cats too. Brilliant, I am very inspired now to do a total renovation of our dogs’ house. These are totally beautiful! Actually, it might pay for me to go totally all out for our pooch. The hard part would be to figure out just which design to choose from, they are all beautiful. I’m leaning to Oscar’s Rock Dog House for now 🙂

    1. Hi Rina,

      You can get as creative as you want with your dog house. I was completely surprised at the designs of some of the dog houses. I’m sure you will like the rock dog house as much as Oscar and his friends do.

      I hard a hard time deciding which type of dog house to build until I stumbled on some of the original rock used to build my house in the basement. Was even lucky enough to have some extra shingles too!

      The only things I needed to buy was tar paper for the roof and some wood to build the dog house. It was a very inexpensive dog house to build and it didn’t take that much time. Maybe 2 weeks or so to build.

      Thanks for your comment Rina, please let us know how your rock dog house turns out!
