Help me remember the name of a children's / young adult book (series?)

I'm looking for a book or series about a boy who is an inventor (or something similar). I'm pretty sure I know what series it's not but I may be mixing things together.

My two elementary school age children have become even more voracious with their reading lately. Although I think the Wimpy Kid, Captain Underpants and Percy Jackson books are great, I've been trying to find and share some books and series that I remember liking at that age. We're getting into the Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary books. I'm getting the Mad Scientists Club series and the Great Brain series too.
However, there's is one book or maybe series that has been lurking in my memory and refuses to give up enough detail (like character names or anything useful) for me to remember it. I vaguely remember a book about a boy who was an inventor (or something similar) and worked out of his family's barn. I'm not sure but I think he might have come to live with an aunt and uncle. He makes friends with a girl close to his age. I think there may also be a dog involved.
I'm sorry that there isn't more detail. It is entirely possible that I am conflating some parts of some of the other series that I mentioned above.
