It's official, the hounds rule the house. I now have no seating for people.
After slowly watching my couch being destroyed, I ditched the couch and made a new bed for the hounds. I bought two large dog pillows, and made a PVC raised frame. It's 6 feet by 3 feet, a lot larger than my old couch, so now I need to re-arrange the furniture.

Dozer and Digger sure look comfy! How long does it take to make a bed like that? Any danger of the bed tipping when the hounds get up there?[/b]
It took longer to go get supplies than it took to build it. (I live 40 miles from Home Depot) I spent $109 all together, $50 for pipe & fittings, $59 for the pillows, but I had the plywood on hand that I used for the base.
It doesn't move at all when they jump on or off. In fact, it held me when I sat on it, and I even laid down on it. (They even joined me :eek: ) I'm not stating my weight combined with thier's, so lets just say it will support at least 5-6 hounds. :lol:

I do need to make a design change on the front. The front rail is too high to clear. I will post more detailed pictures when I finish.

I lowered the front rail of the bed, because it looked like they might catch a paw between the rail and plywood.
Here are some updated pictures with the change.
