Luck Dog’s Grass Shack in Minnesota


Luck needed shelter during winter and summer and a manager’s office after his long days working the cows on the farm. His people, the Goschke’s, have various skills: Steve has building skills and Kally has horticulture and design skills. Luck Dog’s Grass Shack was built with people home construction methods on skids so we could move it into place with a Bobcat by the house door after building part of it in the shed during winter. The placement of the doghouse near the house door (where he considers his post), ventilation, cool summer temps, and warm dry winter temps. make this house a successful home for Luck Dog that he uses as his main home and office. There is a shelf in the winter den for his cat friends but he ain’t sharing yet.

The video and slide show present the features and steps of construction of his entire house, including the green roof.

Homeowner & Cow Herding Dog

Luck Dog lives and works cattle on a Minnesota farm with Steve and Kally and friends. He prefers to not go into the people house so he has, among other options, his house which he needs for warmth in winter and shade and shelter from biting flies, etc., in summer which the green roof provides.
