1. Fasten the top plate, side studs, and bottom plate together with wood screws.

Make sure the corners you are attaching are leveled.

2. Connect the center support studs so that the outside edge (edge closest to the framework) is exactly 11" (27.90cm) in from the sides of the top and bottom plates.

Two wood screws on each end will be fine.

3. Attach the thinner support studs so that they sit flush against the end studs. Use wood screws to attach.

Dog House PlansDog house Building Tip: These thinner studs are not a required part of the plan, but just to add a little more support. Secure thinner studs to the same side of the top and bottom plates, it must go evenly with the outside edge.
