Slate Roof Kennels, The Wooden Workshop. Oakford, Devon (10)

These slate roofed kennels are a custom built, self contained home for this customers working dogs. Fully lined and insulated, with washable floors and a spacious integrated covered run.

Design and features

As with all of our animal housing, these slate roof kennels were created with both security and comfort in mind. The fabricated steel barred sections create a secure, rust free barrier with a lockable access door to keep the animals safe. The covered run area provides protection, from wet weather and also gives summer shade. The sleeping areas have washable floors and are fully lined and insulated to help temperature regulation year round, with internal louvred ventilation to prevent mildew build up and keep the area dry. All exposed areas are protected with anti chew strips and we use pre treated, animal safe timber, making this a durable, top quality kennel that will last.

Construction and Installation

To start the installation we created a washable concrete base with built in drainage. This kennel was built against the wall of the property giving convenient access from the house. Each timber section was built in our workshop and assembled on site where we then installed the tile roof and guttering.
