Kennel Material Advice

Recommended Posts

Built a couple of box kennels in the past..turned out ok....not brill.....I was going to buy one but now looks like I'm going to build one again.


Im wanting to know what wood you'd recommend....sheet ply.....tongue n groove etc for the external..thickness etc


It's going to be insulated.....would kingspan type be best and what thickness


What would you line the inside with ply....what thickness ( although I can see one of my bitches taking a leek in it because if it's raining out she's that way inclined.


I will be using some sort of anti chew angle metal around the edges.
