Are You Looking For A Custom Dog House?

One of my friends has been working for an architecture firm for the past year or so, but he recently has had the itch to design custom dog houses.  We always used to have dog houses for our family dogs at home.  Unfortunately, because I live in a small condo with just a patio I haven’t had the luxury of getting a dog house let alone a custom dog house for my furry friends (hopefully that will all change as I’m looking to buy a house with a nice backyard).

I stopped by my architecture friend’s house the other day and got a first hand look at one of his custom dog house prototypes.  My girlfriend’s parents dog, Yuki even had the chance to test drive this doggy home.

Custom Craftsman Dog House

I don’t think he has names for these houses yet so we’ll just call prototype 1 the Craftsman Dog House.

Yep, that’s our pal Yuki testing out one of the porches on this little abode.  It looks pretty comfy!

Here’s another angle of the same house…and the same dog…this time practicing a sit-stay.  You can see on the inside there’s a nice little doggy bed to keep your little buddy cozy and warm.

Here’s a side angle and you can see Luke in the background about to settle into his dog bed.  I’m not too sure what the pricing will be on these custom dog houses, but I’m sure you can work on pricing with the designer.

I’ve been looking for a new home (a human home that is) for a few years now and I really like the architecture of this Craftsman Dog House (I’ve been actually looking at Eichler homes).  Hopefully if I can find the right Eichler home I can commission my buddy to design a beautify mid-century modern Eichler doggy home for Stetson, Linus, and Adelle.  First things first…I have to find a new home for me and the doggies.  Wish us luck!

Are you looking for a custom dog house?  If so, let us know what you’re looking for in the comment section below.  What do you guys think about these custom craftsman doggy homes?  Do you already have a dog house for you furry friends?

UPDATE: We heard that the pricing is going to be somewhere between $400-600 depending on the size of your dog.  Here are some more pictures of this dog house.  Also, I made some updates to the post as indeed this is a Craftsman Bungalow style dog house.
