Dog Kennels

The Cottage Works will custom build your dog kennel!

Kennel Construction Specs

Many sizes and options are available. Base pricing for kennels follows the base pricing for our basic or deluxe cottages. We use high quality dog-run panels and pet doors.

Basic Dog Kennels:

  • pressure treated 4×4 skids
  • pressure treated 2×4 floor framing at 12″ on center for extra strength
  • 5/8″ treated plywood flooring (or untreated BCX if you prefer)
  • 2×4 wall framing, with studs spaced at 16″ on center and with a double top plate, with 6′ wall height for gable roof buildings and 4′ sidewall height for gambrel roofed buildings
  • 1/2″ DuraTemp premium siding, primed and painted to your choice of color
  • 2×4 rafters, spaced at 24″ on center, with OSB sheathing
  • 5/12 roof pitch with 4″ overhang, and aluminum drip edge
  • 30-35 year self-sealing fiberglass shingles
  • one heavy duty 30″ door, with black decorative hinges and T-handle door latch with key and one 24×27 single hung steel window with screen
  • screened aluminum vents on each gable end wall
  • pressure treated pine corner and door trim

Deluxe Dog Kennels

Deluxe Kennels include all the features of the basic kennels with the following upgrades:

  • 7′ wall height, instead of 6′ wall height
  • the Deluxe Roof, a more aesthetically pleasing roof (with a house-like look and superior ventilation), including a 12″ overhang on eaves and gable ends, custom roof pitch (3/12 to 8/12; we can match the pitch of your house), full vent strips under the eaves, ridge vent, cedar fascia (stained or painted), pine carsiding soffit, and 35 year architectural shingles.
  • naturally rot resistant cedar for all trim and fascia
