I live in Nevada where it gets hot, really really hot and with plastic items you can often get sun rot, so in choosing a dog house plastic is not always the best option. This Dog house has made it through one very hot summer and one very cold winter and held up very well. It is not the deluxe super dog house you will get if you find one made of wood or have it built but for a quick easy to set up and economical dog house this does well. We did put insulation on the floor of it during the winter to help keep the chill of the ground from seeping in but we have also done that with our sturdy wood dog house as well. I was able to assemble this by myself thought there where a couple moments where I felt I was playing twister to fit all the pieces together still even with that it only took about 20 minutes and it was dog ready.
I had purchased this particular dog house many years ago at a local pet store, I had been looking for a new one (had a big chewer dog at one point and that is the only thing that could cause the need to replace it ! ) very well built to last. I could noy find it; never thought about overstock; now I know better they carry everything. If you are looking for a well built, easy to assemble, comfortable, attractive home for your best friend I would highly recomend this item.
I'm a pretty handy man, and I was about to build my own barn style coop. But after researching the prices for lumber and hardware (not to mention the amount of shopping and build time) I started looking at all the pre-made coops available. This coop is by far the best for the price. It is well designed and very strong. It took me less then an hour to assemble and I'm very happy with my purchase. To all of you looking for a premade coop... Pay close attention to the dimensions of all the coops available. They are all very small structures. Don't be decived by the pictures. This coop is suitable to house four or five chickens. It's quite charming and I injoyed putting it together.
