A New Dog House

Dan worked hard on building a dog house for our two doggies all weekend. Since we got new furniture and new carpet they have been outside dogs. This weekend was the first rainy and cold weather we've had and we want the to be warm this winter. So Dan went to the hardware store and bought all the supplies he needed to construct a fabulous dog house big enough for both doggies. Drew helped too! Some of the deluxe features include a raised, carpeted floor and a hinged roof so we can replace their big soft pillows. We still need to paint it, but the dogs were sleeping happily in their new house last night.

Super carpenter Dan

Drew helps with the construction

He wanted me to take a picture of him!

Great dog house. I think the kids need to do some painting on it though. Some cute little Ava and Drew handprints or maybe even some doggy footprints would be pretty cute!!

It's so cute to see Drew helping out like a big boy. That's quite a dog house! I think I could sleep cozily in there. Good job, Dan and Drew!

There's something so cute about a guy who knows how to use power tools...I should know, I married a carpenter!

Awesome job Drew!! Oh, and good job helping out Dan! Every master carpenter needs a great apprentice :)
