Let me introduce you to my black lab Gooch. He’s a good-natured, 90-pound, Frisbee-catching, man’s-best-friend. He enjoys retrieving tennis balls from freezing mountain lakes, hiking to the top of mountains (Timpanogos, King’s Peak), backpacking into wilderness areas (Wind River Range, Sawtooths), and exploring the narrows of southern Utah (Spooky, Ding and Dang). He’s an extraordinary companion; so of course, I wanted to build him an extraordinary dog house. So a few years back I built Gooch a warm, comfortable, custom home using the scrap building materials left over from other jobs.
