Looking to build a kennel but want to keep the cost down. What should I use as a floor?
And you don't have to deal with the crevices collecting in between the pavers. Try to find yourself a sweet deal where there is leftover from a job....I looked at 12"x12" pavers, they came out to more money per sq foot than a 4" thick slab if you prepped ground and finished the concrete yourself.
Yes, kennel size does matter. I only have a 10x10, so it was much cheaper for me to buy a ton of gravel, spread it out, ton of sand, spread it out, and buy the pavers, and lay them, then put sand in the gaps between the pavers.I will be pouring another 6x12 slab this spring for sure....Gonna have to go with a little heavier gauge panels though.....
The poultry flooring works well for smaller dogs but if used for larger dogs it will need to be put on a sturdy frame. Just my thought from using it for smaller dogs. Very expensive but very good is something called "Tenderfoot" I think. Not sure about keeping a dog on it all the time though as we never used it. I like wood planks with a good floor type paint ( quarter inch spacing on planks). I think the lime underneath would work well even though we never tried that.
