Any old materials you have may become handy
Arrange any old building materials in the shape of a box or a small shelter. And make a temporary solution to hide your pet from cold weather. But note that this shelter won’t stand very harsh conditions such as snow and winds.
Use cattle panels or hoop house as goat house
This type of shelter can work well in a milder climate for lean goats because on both ends, it’s open. The hoop house is adequately sturdy to resist snowfall. But if you install it as an adjunct shelter next to a stable, this shelter will function in harsher climates.
Why not use a dog run fence?
A dog run can be used for a few small goats, although it is meant for dogs. In windy and rainy weather, you have to cover it with something, maybe get a trap. In freezing cold, you can place tarps to coat all sides. You can use the dog run as a sleeping place if you cover it as said before. It will give protection in the night after you close the door to keep other animals from jumping on.
Make wooden frame shelter
Get some wood, make it in a box frame in the size appropriate to keep your goats in. Use metal shingles to make for a nice roof. If the floor is directly the ground beneath, you don’t need to make for a wooded floor. Just cover the waste with sand or some wooden sheds. You also have the choice to make a good door for your pet.
