Re: House Dog to Kennel Dog.

See that is why I thought Fiberglass. It has a R value of 13 verses 3.5 with foam. its 3.5 inches thick and could fill up all the areas well. I will look into the foam panels though, only problem is the thickest one is 2 in.

Re: House Dog to Kennel Dog.

Is fiberglass insulation ok if seal it in. I am just thinking it will be a better R factor then foam panels.

So far my list to get this going is going to be:

5 - 8ft 2x4's ($12.50)
2 - 7/16 sheathing ($12)
3 - Panels to do the walls. Debating between plywood ($33) or composite siding ($54)
