What kind and size nail gun is the right one to use for building insulated dog houses?

Question by Chikees: What and size is the right one to use for insulated ?
I want to buy a nail gun to build my own and went online to check out how much they were when I found out that there is quite a few different brands, types, and size nail guns. Boy was I surprised. I will need the nail to go through a 2×4 and plywood as well as siding. Thanks in advance

    You will need a framing nailer, which will work for building the 2×4 frame as well as nailing on the plywood for the walls and roof. Use 16d nails for the framing and 8d nails for the sheathing. As for siding, what are you using? If you’re using plywood siding, you can use the same gun. If vinyl, you will want to hand nail. Vinyl needs to be able to expand and contract, and if you nail it tight it will buckle. Hope this helps.
