Check out Boris the Bouvier! Doesn’t he look simply dashing in his orange Hot Dogs collar? Boris (named after the legendary Boris Karloff) is a man about town, strutting his stuff on the Halifax Common, rocking out in Hot Dogs All Dressed couture. After a long photo shoot Boris takes time off to shop for some sock monkeys…they look so tasty…!

We would love to see how great your pet looks in Hot Dogs All Dressed collars and leashes! Send us your photos at info@henhouse.ca and we will post them on the blog!


One of our latest creations – a custom armoire made out of beautiful solid birch, finished in a chestnut stain. As always, the drawers are dovetailed, providing the ultimate support and indication of longevity. Funky hardware fitted by anthropologie (our favorite new place to score unique and decorative hardware).

Birch Armoire $2575, can be made in other types of woods and finishes


After quite a few weeks and and a lot of attention to detail, the kitchen is complete! Now all of the little design features which were planned out months ago,have finally come together to form a complete picture – the colours in the stone floor which were carefully chosen and laid out by hand, the tile scene centered amongst the back splash behind the stove, the custom blended antique finish, the design featured on th front of the island…all of it pulls together to reveal a true henhouse kitchen. Visit our website to get inspired by our other great kitchen galleries!


Does this sign look familiar? It currently resides in our shop, behind our store counter…but many moons ago it used to live outside our old store on South Street. Designed and handcrafted by the henhouse gals (a.k.a Denise and Sappho) it has stayed with us over the years as we outgrew our old store and moved into our new nest in the Hydrostone Market. Since then it has been updated by the lovely folks over at eye candy, who installed the new text at the bottom.
