Swedish summer house

So... after a few nights work and way too much time spent waiting for the paint to dry, our puppy’s swedish-summerhouse-kennel is finally finished. I must admit that I had a great time playing handy man. I believe that you will always be the person you grew up to be. In my case that is a country-town kind of guy who likes playing rough sports, going fishing and doing handy-man work.

I also realized that living in Sydney makes this kind of labour a bit harder than when you live in the country side. I did not have all the right tools and not the same plentiful supply of building materials that I normally would have living in Sweden but hey, I am pretty proud of the final result.

I can assure you that after my obsessive strive toward perfection and three solid coats of paint this kennel will withstand the signs of time pretty well. Unfortunately I have realized that the kennel is a bit on the small side as an Amstaff grows pretty solid. Especially as the breeder has told us that his bone structure is on the heavy side :) I might consider selling this beauty so I can buy some more material and make a bigger model.

If you know anyone who is interested in a hand-built swedish summer house for their dog, please let me know.
