2008 Best Detached Outbuilding Remodel

The owners had some special needs after doubling the size of their four-legged family. Once the young pups were out of their toddler phase, they took the show dog runway by storm and racked up the show trophies. With their success came the desire to have their masters build them a house of their own...which they did. Challenged with designing a doghouse that did not look and feel like a doghouse brought this project into the detached outbuilding category. The style of the architecture and a desire to use natural materials guided the choices of most finishes. The decision to use granite and cedar to create the structure, as well as define spaces with practical, durable materials within the structure was key. Aesthetically this cottage design and use of materials made for a dramatic change to the original backyard and to the lives of all concerned. The cottage in the woods serves the homeowner’s needs for gardening and the dog’s need for space. At last check-in, all seem to be living happily ever after.
