Apart from the tips above, make sure that everything element that goes into building your dog house must be dog-friendly. Also, don't forget to customize – like building a larger back door (that can be opened by humans, but other closed solid in the back acting like the back wall) so that you can come in and clean at regular intervals, painting your dog house in attractive colours, add over-hangs to the roof, etc.
Elevate the dog house slightly: You will not want it be to level with the ground in the porch or in the garden for a variety of reasons — during rain there could be a possibility of water flowing into the dog house that's certainly not good for the dog. Further, it keeps the dog out of contact with the damp soil (especially if it is in the garden).
Start with a solid foundation: Dog houses are built of wood mostly. However, any kind of wood won't do. Start with the size of your dog and try to build a house around it's size – not the size when it's a little puppy but the actual size it's expected to grow to. If you are using artificial wood or pre-treated wood panels, make sure that you neutralize the chemicals since some of these can be harmful for animals. Better still, avoid using artificial wood panels altogether.
