I sat here one day searching the internet and came across a picture of a beautiful indoor, under the stairs built in dog house. They had four of them shown (see below) and one was nicer than the next. I showed my husband and he thought they were very cute also. My husband’s friend Pete had been over and Pete is a carpenter. He thought the houses were a great idea. We did not talk to much about it anymore but I kept thinking about how my three dogs would LOVE that cozy little area.
About a week later, I had still been thinking about the indoor under the stair dog house. That afternoon my door bell rang and it was Pete. He said “Are you still thinking about the dog house under the stairs?” I informed him I was and he told me he thought it was such a great idea. So, he started the work the next day. The one Pete built for me in not as elaborate as the ones in the picture’s below however, I LOVE it and my dogs do too.
Here is the original picture that I saw and LOVED..
When he first started, I was so surprised at how much room there is under the staircase. It was just wasted space. If I ever want to make it into a closet or a storage area, it would be a very easy thing to do. But I for one love it for my dog and my dogs love it as well. They use it all the time. We put their cozy beds in there and I made up some lavender sachet bags for a relaxing fragrance for them to feel calm. I really think they are very happy when they choose to go in the space it makes them feel like it is their own little den.
If you would like to have this made for your doggie’s and you live in the Charlotte NC area contact Pete at 704-936-7083
