A manufacturing facility in Sagola wins a doghouse–building competition

National Manufacturing Day, recognized Friday, October 6th, is the manufacturing industry’s biggest annual event. The annual affair serves as an opportunity to inspire tomorrow’s workforce, change perceptions, and build a foundation for future jobs in the industry.

In honor of the day, LP hosted a doghouse–building competition between their 20 North American Manufacturing facilities. The teams flexed their skills as they utilized LP products in their custom designs. Companywide and public voting took place on LinkedIn from October 30th through November 2nd.

A tailor–made doghouse, designed by LP Sagola, took home the grand prize.

The design included solar–powered lights, climate controls, dual 180–degree panoramic windows, waterproof laminate flooring, and LP’s SmartSide custom dog–bone shaped shutters.

To celebrate, the winning team received a meal of hot dogs and bratwursts. The winning luxury doghouse was donated to the Northwoods Animal Shelter located in Iron River.
