Follow the instructions: The first most important step is figuring where the door needs to go. Take the necessary time needed to come up with the ideal place to build your pet house. After figuring out where the pets’ house will go, cut out a pilot hole by using a dry wall saw. The hole should be big enough to allow your head to go through. If the space looks like you pictured it to be you can proceed with cutting out the required space. As you create the space (through cutting), factor in the gate’s/door’s height and the width. By now you should have created a big enough hole that you can crawl in and out off. Install in a light which will “shine” over everything you do. Now address the floor. You can decide to let the floor type you have in the rest of the house to continue into your pet’s room.
