Studio Schicketanz is a California-based architectural firm behind a series of stunning homes. The outfit’s latest build is decidedly smaller but no less awesome. The brand built a dog house. But not just any dog house, mind you. No, this is easily the sweetest pup pad we’ve ever seen. As noted in designboom, the highlight is the green roof, which allows Fido some space to explore above the area he rests in. A motion-activated faucet on that roof offers hydration for your dog and helps irrigate the greenery. There’s even a storage area for toys, a drain for easy cleanup, and windows on the side walls. Unfortunately, you can’t just run to your local PetSmart to snag this luxurious doggy home. An auction will take place later this month with proceeds going to the SPCA of Monterey County. 

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
