Default Suggestions on dog house designing and building

How do you guys keep your GSDs outdoors? My pup is getting a little too big for the crate and it looks like I will need to look for a solution that will last. I am considering converting my old tool shed into her permanent home but it looks ugly and is going to take a while to clean up I might consider buying or building a house from scratch.

If you don't mind, do share pics your dog house, I need all the inspiration I can get

Never had any issues with dogs in the house, maybe keep the pup inside?

If you insist on keeping a pet outside then the best inspiration I got for you is to find a good rolling chicken coop and adjust the design for a dog.

Well the wife is a clean freak so absolutely no dogs allowed indoors. Besides I've always kept my previous dogs outdoors too with no problems.

The chicken coop sounds like a good idea but it can be a little exposed to the elements, it rains 270 out of 365 days here and I might need something a little more resilient. Also I need a design which is well ventilated, it's summer 365 days a year here.

Found some nice designs. Might try to adapt one of them for tropical climates
