Contemporary in Just 32 Hours
The detail on this flat-roofed contemporary is so accurate that in some views, we couldn't tell it apart from the real house. What's even more impressive is the fact that its builder, Mark Kasche, put this little puppy together in just 32 hours. The box is plywood, the windows are glazed with polycarbonate plastic, and the chimney is covered in textured paper that makes it look astonishingly similar to the main house's volcanic-stone version. Kasche, a contractor, says the materials ran him around $300. But if he were charging his regular hourly wage of $125, he says, "we're looking at a four-thousand-dollar doghouse." At that rate, beagle Pogo should be the envy of every other hound in the neighborhood.
