What is Pet Palaces?

You love your pets, and you love DIY — or, at least, reading about it. Our new show Pet Palaces combines both these things. We’re bringing you all kinds of incredible DIY habitats for pets of every species!

Host Luke Barr regularly tackles unique challenges as he strives to design spaces that fit the pets, as well as the needs of their owners. That’s right: These “palaces” aren’t limited to cat towers and dog houses. Barr designs for ALL kinds of pets. Keep an eye out for the catio episode, one of Barr’s personal favorite projects. 

Who is Luke Barr?

Barr’s love for DIY started early. Growing up in a family of carpenters and electricians means his loved ones taught him how to make custom things for his home. He’s now channeling that love into helping pet owners give their furry, scaly or feathered friends beautiful spaces.

Barr also loves animals; he currently has a dog, cat and indoor chicken. So these incredible “palaces” are designed by someone with hands-on experience owning pets, who understands how to balance a pet’s needs within an owner’s space.
