cover for 8' x 12' kennel?
 
I have been offered an 8' x 12' kennel for a really good price, however it doesn't come with a top. I'm not sure the height yet, they are checking, I think it's 6'.

Does anyone know if I can use/make something for the top of it? Anyone have a kennel this size?

Also, are patio stones a good 'flooring' choice for it?

Thanks!

You can check out this place to order one http://www.shadenthings.com/mobile/
I have a 10x20 and used one of those tents that has a tarp top. Last year it was connected to poles into the ground, this year I attached it to the kennel and tied it to kennel as reinforcement. I use one bundle of straw a year for floor coverage.

Oh great, thanks!

Do you have grass flooring, or what do you use?

I use straw. Easy to clean up after the dogs and replenish or replace . It's compostable.

I'd never thought about using straw!
