Where Did The Cape Cod Design Come From?
The Cape Cod style home originated in the 17th century in New England, most of these houses were a story and a half with a pitched roof and end gables.
These homes were designed to deal with the harsh elements of the Cape Cod weather, which at times could be brutal.
The traditional home had simplistic features with a central front door with pane glass windows on each side framing the door.
The style is still popular after all this time and the design can be seen from coast to coast.

Frequently Asked Questions About The Dog House Kennel Combo:
Question: How is the dog house kennel combo shipped to my house?
Answer: Since the kennel system is so large it has to be constructed in panels and then assembled when it reaches its new home. All the panels are secured on a shipping pallet, then covered and then transported by a freight truck to your reside.
Which makes the free shipping feature a big deal since these dog house kennels are too large to ship by standard UPS or FedEx. Consider that on average the freight charge to ship these houses is $400 to $600.00 minimum.
Question: Can I have special custom work to the current design?
Answer: Yes we have done custom work for dog owners over the years and in almost all cases we have been able to fulfill the request, as long as it doesn’t require a complete redesign. Just call or email us with your request and we can give you a quote.
Question: Is there an air condition heater unit that will work with this dog house kennel?
Answer: Yes, however it has to be our larger climate control unit (Model 5000) because of the extra square footage over our regular dog houses.
Question: How hard is it to assemble and how long will it take?
Answer: That is going to depend on your skill set and if you have any help, in the past customers have been able to assemble in a day easily with two people, if you have more then it will be faster and easier.

Answer: The Great Dane, the Bull Mastiff, the Saint Bernard, the Pyrenees Mountain Dog , the Newfoundland and other breeds of similar size or an entire tribe of Chihuahuas!
