An entire mudroom built with Fido in mind. The chain link fence creating the dog bed space under the upper cabinets isn't exactly lovely, but it's certainly functional and would confine a large, strong dog well. You could make this more attractive by extending the cabinetry down and using open mesh grid on doors on the base, or creating a fence with wooden posts instead of the chain link.

Integrated Entry Storage-This entry system doesn't leave organization to chance. Labels on hooks, baskets, and cubbies ensure that everything goes where it belongs. Closed upper cabinets store off-season gear, while boxes corral smaller items on open shelves. A bench seat opens for more storage capacity and slides neatly under the desk. At the desk, calendars and file bins keep paperwork and calendars organized
A room just for the dogs and their stuff - this might sound like a waste of space, but if you have big dogs, you know how awesome that would be!!! Especially the built in dog bath.... So need this in our home!
