Puphaus is the first offering from Atlanta based design studio, Pyramd Design Co. Sporting backgrounds in graphic and industrial design, dog-loving founders Roy Fleeman and Zach Griggs wanted to design & build something unique for man's best friend: the Puphaus. Time to ditch the plastic igloos and give our pups some stylish new digs.
American Made with Western Red Cedar and Portland Cement Board
Taking cues from modern home design, naturally-derived materials were chosen that would look and feel at home in any outdoor setting, while coming together to make a head-turning architectural statement.
ADJUSTABLE FEET FOR EASY LEVELING
INTEGRATED FOOD AND WATER BOWLS
FLOATING ROOF FOR ENHANCED AIR CIRCULATION
CORROSION RESISTANT HARDWARE
Puphaus is quickly and easily assembled without any tools.
Puphaus’ unique construction allows it to flatpack for affordable shipping, and once unboxed it can be easily assembled in five steps without any tools.
+ Where can I use Puphaus?
Puphaus is designed to be used outdoors, but can certainly be used indoors as well. When located outdoors, it is recommended that Puphaus be placed on a flat, level surface such as a lawn, patio, or deck, in an area that is not prone to flooding.
+ When will Puphaus ship?
Puphaus will ship Fall 2015
+ What colors/finishes are available?
Puphaus is currently only offered in natural western red cedar and gray portland cement board. These materials are left unfinished by design. However, if desired, customers may apply a wood stained or oiled finish to the cedar panels. Color can also be applied to the cement board by using an off-the-shelf concrete stain (Behr or similar). We encourage you to have fun with your Puphaus, although Pyramd cannot take responsibility for any ill-fated enhancements!
+ Does Puphaus require maintenance?
That is the beauty of the materials, they are naturally maintenance-free. Puphaus will develop a certain patina as it ages - which is encouraged! However if you want to postpone the natural aging and staining of Puphaus, it is recommended that you do your best to keep debris such as wet leaves, mud, etc. from settling on the surfaces. Be advised that nature will eventually win!
+ Will my dog fit in a Puphaus?
Puphaus is designed for dogs under 50 lbs. Any pup over the 50 lb limit likely will not fit comfortably.
+ Can I sleep in a Puphaus?
Not recommended! Puphaus was designed for medium weight dogs and cannot support the weight of a human being! So avoid standing, sitting or kneeling on the Puphaus panels, especially during assembly/disassembly.
+ How long will Puphaus last?
Pyramd cannot promise a lifespan for Puphaus since we cannot control the elements in which it is used. However, you can take comfort knowing that the cement board material is designed to last 20 years in the most extreme weather conditions. Also, cedar is the #1 wood of choice for outdoor use due to the oils that occur naturally within the wood, keeping it safe from rot, decay, and insects.
