A large "Dogloo", which is mostly one piece is pretty sturdy, I had one before.
I learned to put it outside the fence with a cutout for the dogloo entry, I had a hard time fitting the fence panel up against it, had to drill a couple of holes in the entry way and wire it to the panel. They got so expensive when it finally broke apart (thermal degradation/brittling) after 8 years, I never replaced it. I think the largest size is over $200 now.

I would recommend a calf-hutch, or even a small shed. Dog houses really don't protect goats from weather enough. I live in NJ and we have the same weather, trust me, they need an awning with a dog house underneath, or a larger calf-hutch/shed remember they will have to have hay and water and ideally minerals inside of it as well.
