Hello and happy Monday! I’ve got a treat for you today – I teamed up with the amazing Shara from Woodshop Diaries to bring you the plans and tutorial for this adorable DIY Doghouse with Deck!
Look. How. Cute!!!
I first “met” Shara when she submitted her twisty side table for my One Board Challenge a couple of years ago. I dreamed up The One Board Challenge and invited a few blogger friends of mine to build something awesome out of a single board. After seeing how much interest it generated from the woodworking community, I opened up the contest to everyone and Shara’s side table was one of my favorite (and one of the most impressive) submissions.
When Shara reached out to me to write the plans for a doghouse she wanted to build for her beloved Lucy Lou, I couldn’t say “heck yeah!” fast enough. I think Lucy loves her new digs, don’t you?
Be sure to visit Woodshop Diaries for the tutorial – Shara wrote up an extensive post with a lot more photos and building tips, so head over to her site to get the full run-down. She’s even got a helpful video to walk you through the build!
I love that Shara added a food bowl and a toy box. She also insulated the inside to keep Lucy nice and toasty in the wintertime. Who could ask for anything more?
Are you ready to build your own DIY Doghouse with Deck? I’ve got you covered with the free plans! Click the button below to have the plans emailed to you, then head over to Shara’s site for more photos and info!

Hey Jen, thank you so much for sharing this idea! I think it will take me a little while to finish it, but I’m sure my doggy will love her new house!
So you think there is enough room inside to add a half wall, to the left of the door? In order to help keep wind out. My dog looks to be the same size as Lucy. Thanks!
Your plans say the roof beams need to be cut at a 75° cut. Thats to steep, may want to make sure you fix that angle.
Thanks Brian. It’s 75º off square (90º – 75º = 15º). Sorry for the confusion!
Not sure how to comment. My son is building this for an online school woodworking project. As we are VERY novice woodworkers, when your plans says ‘drill pocket holes, the plans don’t indicate exactly where those should go
I’d love to download the plans, but everytime I click the Download link it brings right back to the top of the page. I’ve entered my e-mail to the box on the right and confirmed from the e-mail that was sent.

Hello Jen I seem to be having the same issue.
Alvin Mureithi says
Tried downloading the plans but I can’t seem to find them
Please could you resend them
Can I get the measurements for a medium size dog house
If you want to add the insulation like in the video where are the cuts for that and how much plyboard do you need to buy??
Do you have the measurements and/or plans for the toy box and the food and water dish?
Would love the doghouse with deck plans if still available.
Karen Weber says
I was hoping to download the plans for this dog house with deck. But the link does not appear to be working. Would love to be added to the newsletter too.
Monica Preston says
I still received the plans in my email and I checked the junk folder.
Love the design. How does it handle rain? Does it stay dry inside or should I consider tar and shingles on the roof? Maybe real tongue and groove siding?
