It doesn't sound bad I totally get it I would do the same not to stress out my faithful friend. I would put plastic or a water proof mattress pad where he losses control for easier clean up. I love my dogs and they are family members. This will give you time to plan your house. Like I saw a house where the owners built custom entertainment center, they put two built in crates for their dogs. I'm sure you have already thought all about it. Take as you go pics please. Another thing we did was take pics of all pluming and electric so it there is ever a problem it's easier to pinpoint where it is.
Do you keep bees? I can't wait to put it together. I get my bees this month. Good to know your still hanging around with us. Pam
No I don't keep bees but have always thought it's interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing about yours and seeing pics though. :)
