The Security Director's Private Bathroom

Here's Ralph's coyote-proof enclosure. I painted it to match the house, and now I'm putting the sunshade on top.
Carpenter fastening the shade material to the enclosure. I used 1-1/2" 20 gauge steel angle with self-tapping screws to fasten the solar screen fabric to the top. I didn't put fabric on the sides because I want Ralph to be able to see the front driveway easily. It's his job to spot "boogers". That's what we pay him for.
Carpenter demonstrates opening one of the two lids. Since I'm too big to fit through the doggie door, I needed a way to get in and clean Ralph's bathroom.
The completed enclosure.

A Ralph's-eye-view.


  1. can you tell me where to get the material, my dog just got attacked by a coyote and need something like that to ensure their safety

  2. Hi,
    I had a welding shop fabricate the enclosure from my design. (I never learned to weld.) It's just easily available hollow square tubing mostly.
