Pet Travel Kennel Into Doghouse

Hello everyone!  Finally made an account after using this site for over 5yrs because I'm hoping to find some advice. I have a big, plastic, dog-sized travel kennel (airplane kind).  Since my pet isn't using it anymore, thought I'd convert it into an outside doghouse seeing as though it's practically complete already.  To prevent rain from getting inside, I need to cover up the side & back barred "windows".  My 1st impulse was to replace the metal bars with wood, but rain would just leak in through the top.  Any thoughts on attaching a makeshift roof?  I've added a picture of it to help (the metal door has been removed).

How do I bend elect. conduit?

I have a 5" radius 1/2" emt bender and 100' of 1/2" emt. I need to make three bends in each piece, 1- 90 degree in the middle and 1-45 degree bend on each side of the 90. Here's my problem: I need the "legs" (sides - picture a doghouse with a 90 deg peak and straight up and down sides) to be exactly 27" apart INSIDE measurement. Now, where do I make my marks on the pipe and what direction do I bend (facing the 90 or facing away from the 90)? I need these measurements to be precise so I can make all ten pieces of pipe the same. How 'bout you Journeyman Electricians? Anybody. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
