Building a Greenhouse or Cold Frame out of a Dog Kennel

By Natalie
July 1, 2013

When we got our Lab pup, Bailey, we decided to buy an outside dog kennel so that she wouldn't get into all of my plants. The idea was that we would leave her in there if we needed to run an errand, instead of letting her have free run of the yard. By the time she was 1 1/2 years old, however, she had only spent an entire 1/2 hour in it. So, it was a wasted $250. Or so I thought! I really wanted a greenhouse, and the kennel made the perfect frame for it!

I love your ideas . I am going to redo a kennel I have young guineafowl housed in to make it more weatherproof from the rain and to roof it where rain will run off. We have wracked our brains trying to come up with alternatives that were less expensive than purchased tops and would actually suit our purpose and this is it. Thank-you so much for your post! Thank You!

You're very welcome! Another friend topped her large chicken coup this way too, and it worked really well for her, so I'm sure it will work for you, too!
