Green roofs on houses become more and more popular nowadays, so how about creating one on a dog house? You probably already have one you can improve and besides that’s much more easier. This beatiful project is inspired by a California-based company Sustainable Pet Design, which offers prefabricated dog houses with green roofs.
For the project you’ll need: safecoat seals and roof guard, 1×8-inch rough cedar piece, three copper drainpipes, nontoxic wood filler, zero VOC exterior paint, several bamboo pieces, some fabric, nontoxic glue, organic soil, native plants and some tools. You can find the full list of materials and instructions on ReadyMade website or in ReadyMade’s August/September issue.
