Doghouse carpentry plans

Build your own doghouse:

doghousebig
This doghouse was specifically built in a certain manner. The picture on the front cover was the doghouse built for this plan.

Some modifications were made to simplify this plan for the novice. However the original was designed to be 4x6x5 doghouse with insulation. There are options to place doorways in different places.
There are also 2 different doorway sizes, (1’6”x 2’0” and 2’0” x 2’6”)

There are two different plans: one plan is for the doorway to be in the front (The four foot section) and another plan is for the doorway to be on the side. (On the back half of the six foot side.)

These instructions are a guide to build a 4×6 doghouse that is roughly five feet tall. The housing area is one foot from the ground and the roof is five feet from the deck.

Arghh! Pirate Ship Fort guidebook

Piratecover

It is called a Pirate Ship because it resembles a ship. It is not intended to function as an actual ship at sea or lake. The picture on the front cover is the fort that was designed for this plan.

Some modifications were made to simplify this plan for the novice. The original was designed to be a solitary 3x20x7 fort. Other parts were added, such as an optional mast that could reach eight feet or higher. This is obviously optional. It will be easy to add these portions later if you want, rather than build the entire thing at once.

These instructions are a guide to build a three foot wide and 17 feet plus long fort that is roughly seven feet tall to the top of the railings. It has a step unit leading onto the port side. The deck is four feet from the ground and the Aft deck is five feet from the ground. The underground area is four feet from ground.

Cost: The price for the materials to build this project would be dependent upon what material that you purchase. Some lumber is more expensive than others. However, the original structure was designed with standard pine so the general cost would be around $1500, that would include hardware.

There were a couple of places where the directions weren’t just exact but nothing that kept it from turning out great. Here’s a photo of it under construction and one as a finished project. Just over $300 in materials, not bad at all and plenty of room to expand, add a deck, store toys underneath or put in a sandbox, etc. Plus its portable if you want it to be and can be moved if you think the grass needs a rest in a certain area. It is not in the pictures but we did put poles in the ground and secured the fort to them, the wind gets pretty ridiculous sometimes. Later we are thinking about attaching it to a tree with environmentally friendly bolts so that when the kids a re a little older they can go up in to a tree house from the fort. Lots of possibilities.
