Probably, Mia, Cooper, Bruno, and Tessa are the luckiest dogs on Earth. These four pets are owned by Aaron Franks, who lives in Pennsylvania. Aaron does not have real experience in building to speak of. Despite that, he singlehandedly created an epic backyard construction project that was dedicated to his pooches.
A few years ago, Aaron started converting his backyard into his dogs’ three-story playhouse. He wanted it to include lights, pirate-themed swimming pool, running water, and lots of space where his dogs could play and relax. At first, Aaron was not really sure how his project would turn out, but he still began constructing.
For Aaron, this playhouse project was a labor of love. He worked on it little by little. Sometimes, he even spent a month on a few boards. If Aaron had a few extra bucks, he would go out and add something to it. Aaron said that things just came together as he went along.
The finished product contains everything that any dog would want in a playhouse. The deck is on the top level. From there, the dogs can use a ramp to go down to the second level, which is the inside of the house. This is where they can lay down and enjoy the view outside through the windows.
To reach the first level, the dogs can use the staircase. This is where the pool is located. The pups have separate rooms too. If they want to lay by the poolside, there is also a cozy place to do that. Of course, Aaron built a dedicated spot where the pooches can do their business too.
If the dogs don’t feel like swimming or lounging, they can enjoy the rope swing. Unsurprisingly, Aaron’s dogs love their new playhouse. He said that his two older dogs like laying and hanging out in it. They love being able to see over the fence, which is a new view to them.
Meanwhile, the youngest two dogs love jumping and playing around. They enjoy swinging a lot. At night time, the entire playhouse lights up. Although it took so much time and effort, Aaron feels that it was all worth it. This was his way of showing them his love, aside from feeding and walking them every day.
