The 8×16 Dog Kennel Building Plans Include:
- 7′-7″ or 8′-1″ wall height – The 7′-7″ wall height allows a pre-hung factory built door to go on any wall and reduces the amount of siding and labor needed to build the shed. The 8′-1″ wall height lets you use 92-5/8″ framing studs just like a home.
- Factory or Home Built Doors – Using a pre hung door makes the door building and hanging job much easier. The shed plans also include door plans if you prefer to build your own doors.
- Multiple Door Options – Drawings explaining how to build the door on the end or sides of the shed.
