"Dog house" is actually hidden access to a doggie door, providing visual & physical security against intruders. Always thought it would be cool to have a dog door into the garage on the side of the house with a covered dog run.
Ruins like this spark my imagination. *** Castell Dinas Brân is a medieval castle standing high on a hill above the town of Llangollen in Denbighshire, Wales. It is also the site of an Iron Age hill fort.
