Some people really go the extra mile for their pets. A couple and their pet dog Jack were looking for sleeping solutions since Jack sleeps under anything, but they wanted to give him a safe and comfy den of his own. With a bit of inspiration from Pinterest, Jack’s owner got to work on a dog house right under the stairs.

#4. Making Measurements
It’s a good idea to use your pet’s mat as a rough guideline, and by putting it inside the dog house it can help them transition to the new space! They also used pine wood for the interior.
