Austin Barkitecture event.
I went for the reclaimed wood because I try and use as much recycled material in my doghouses as possible. If someone is throwing something away and it can be reused in a manner that just takes some elbow grease to re-purpose, then it's worth the effort in my mind. I like the idea of taking something that previously kept a dog contained to a particular area and making into a space that it can call its outdoor home...
...It's great to think that everyone who participated wound up making a good deal of money for some of the local animal rescues. Some of the houses went for more than $350 and featured rainwater collection/drinking water and plants for eventual green roof areas. Also, hopefully some of the dogs available for adoption went to new homes.
