Picture of duct tape pup tent
 for the duct tape tough contest i was thinking what i could do, not another clothing item, nor a duct tape rose. what about some sort of camp facility, for my dog? it seemed plausible, had lots of pros, and wouldn't cost a fortune.

in this instructable I will show you how to make a duct tape dog house. this is water proof and holds heat well so there is no worry of your dog getting wet in the middle of the night and, as mentioned before, wont empty your piggy bank to do. this was made for my 21 inch high dog, i used his bed to get the lengths so make sure the measurements are correct before you use this much duct tape.

Add a flynet shield for air, lantern and a zipper door

You can make a bigger, lighter tent using 2-3 rolls of clear duct tape and 3
space blankets. I made this over a weekend, and it was the best overall tent we used at Philmont. Credit goes to Al Geist for excellent instructions.

I can't see what the other end looks like, but I assume it is open. If not, please be careful not to seal it up too tight. Unlike the cloth in tents duct tape doesn't breathe and any living thing intside this could suffocate.

yeah, it's not sealed. i used the excess from the back sheet to make flaps. even if i do add a zipper the bottom will still be open. this is a picture of the front "door"
