Staircase doghouse

My Bassett hounds love being outside and take cover from the sun under my staircase below my door wall so I turned it in to a doghouse

  • This is such a clever idea! How inventive of you to create a space out of the area your pups were already using. What's great about is that it's a completely hidden space. What kind of stone/veneer did you use on the outside?

  • The stone was bought from a local building supplier and was left over from when I had the house done it's a castle stone and there is many manufacturers of this cultured stone
