Building My Energy-Efficient Dog House Wood construction
Metalic radiant barrier
High RF foamboard insulation
Caulking to reduce heat loss
Double-paned windows 6. Clamp wall pieces together 2. Cut wood for walls, floor, ceiling, and roof 3. Measure foam insulation 4. Cut foam insulation By Ashley Chambers 1. Draw the design 5. Glue foam insulation and wood 7. Put caulking around windows 8. Sew material for door 9. Glue walls and floor together 11. Glue roof pieces together 12. Insert radiant barrier 13. Paint dog house 13. Seal outside edges 10. Caulk seams between walls and floor ... but safety first!!! Starting with some simple materials Our Challenge Our challenge was to build a new dog house design for the K-9 dog house company. The dog house had to be energy efficient so that the dog could comfortable and warm in the winter and cool in the summer.And last the house also had to be 15cm by 15cm. My Test In sunlight: room, 21 degrees, sunlight, 21 degrees
In freezer: room, 19 degrees, freezer, 12 degrees Evaluate The materials in my dog house that helped make sure that the temperature did not drop too quickly were insulation, radiant barriers, caulking and weather stripping. I put insulation with a high R-value inside of walls, floors and ceiling to help prevent heat transfer by conduction and convection and stop movement in air spaces. For radiant barriers I installed shiny foil to because the shiny part reflects radiant energy and prevents it from warming the house. The caulking was put were all edges meet to stop air from getting in the house. And last the weather stripping was used on top of caulking for extra support. Pros and Cons Pros:
- my dog house looks appealing
- it is insulated pretty well Cons:
- windows allow more air in than walls
- style of door allows more air in
