If you need a dog house in a hurry, I would recommend the LCS Easy Build Dog House which is available in two sizes.
I have put a couple of these dog houses together and found them to be easy and simple to construct. The house is made of pre-cut, one-inch plywood panels. You get the six basic pieces in your shipment, along with the screws and appropriate screw bit for assembly. The screw holes are pre-drilled which makes it very easy to fasten the base and four sides together. The roof is removable for easy cleaning and placement of fresh bedding.
The plywood panels come with a primer coating on the exterior. The first thing I would suggest you do after assembling your dog house is to paint it with two coats of good exterior paint to protect the outside surfaces. Also—and this is very important—get a piece of rolled roofing with the granular coating and contact-cement this roofing material to the roof of your dog house. This will give good protection to the roof and keep your dog nice and dry!
DO NOT nail the roofing material to the roof of the dog house. The nail points may protrude through the roof and become a potential injury hazard for your dog.
Considering the price of building materials today, this dog house is a great value!
