Eichler-Inspired Modern Beam House: $4,500

"The ‘beam house’ draws its inspiration from the architecture of Palm Springs and Southern California. This luxury dog house brings mid-century modern architecture to your own backyard with clean lines of vertical wood siding and a low slung pitched roof. The broad eaves allow for a shaded interior while providing your dog a shaded area to stay cool. A custom planter box is situated below the extended eaves to allow for water run off to water and hydrate the planting below. The deck provides indoor and outdoor comfort for the dog to cuddle up on the cool artificial turf while also allowing it to soak in some rays on their personal deck. A window gives the pup a view and a way to keep track on what is going on outside of the house."

Mid-Century Modern Ranch House: $3,500

"The low-pitched roof and eaves allows for a shaded interior while providing passive ventilation for the pup to stay cool. The roof is comprised of expressed beams and eaves with cedar shingles from end to end. As an aesthetic feature for the owner, a custom planter box is situated below the extended eaves to allow for water run off to water and hydrate the planting below. It has both indoor and outdoor comforts for the dog by means of a deck. The deck extends inside to create a cozy retreat for the dog to cuddle up on the cool artificial turf while also allowing it to soak in some rays on his personal deck. The internal part of the dog retreat contains a window or portal for the dog to be able to keep track of what going on both inside and outside of his retreat."

Modern Butterfly House: $3,000

"Much care was taken into the building of the house for the safety of our beloved pets. The house is constructed of wood and has been painted, sealed, trimmed and enclosed as best as possible to protect the house from the elements and your pet. Wear and tear is dependent on the house outdoor environment, sun, rain, moisture, exposure and of course, the size and personality of your pet."

Modern Re-Treat House: $3,500

"The deck extends inside to create a cozy retreat for the dog to cuddle up on his custom made dog bed while also allowing it to soak in some rays on his personal deck. The internal part of the dog retreat contains a window or portal for the dog to be able to keep track of what going on both inside and outside of his retreat. The roof is also thought about with the addition of a live roof system of which has carex grass planted in a 2' x 3' grid. This live roof gives both a temperature barrier for the retreat and also a lounging area for the dog. The roof is accessible through the back ledge for any dog to lounge and enjoy the view."
