Hello everybody!

I found this site yesterday, and I already love it! I have found so many beautiful things, and I am really inspired!

As a thanks, I thought that I could share this little idea: The guinnea pig cage for the guinnea pigs I had before!




I have to tell that it is not I who have made this... it is my boyfriend, or, the two of us together. But the idea is mine, and I think this is a good idea, to show it here. He thinks its okay, too Smiley



This is a single wardrobe, bought for approximatly 500 norwegian kroners. When we put it together, it had a "floor" and a "1st floor", and to doors (sorry about my norwegian-english-writing).

My boyfriend used some old shelves to make the other floors. So, the bottom one got to be the basement where we had the food, pellets, etc. The next one had the floor all the way, because it was the original shelf. So the second(?) floor, which pointed our way, with a board as "stairs". The third floor, opposite way,the board toward us, and the last floor pointing our way.

The top floors:



Then he cut out the middle of the doors, and replaced them with some mesh (?)

We nailed some sand paper on the board so that the guinnea pigs could climb up and down without problems.

The result was that they really loved it. It took them some days to get used to the climbing, but the result was three, really happy and healthy guinnea pigs!

Thank you!

In one way: yes. But I used a big and wide spatula only for that use...(of course  Cheesy)
Afterwards I discovered a bucket you can attach to your vacuum cleaner, which really is for vacuum the ash from the fireplace. It works great for shavings (?) as well, for we used that to our little ones Smiley
So I vacuumed, washed with organic spray, let it dry and filled the wardrobe up again.

So yes, it was a little bit more work, but when you got used to ut, it was worth it. They were so happy, and so healthy Smiley

Wow!  This is brilliant!  I'm not sure I'll show it to my guinea pigs - otherwise I think they would get jealous  Wink

Thank you so much for comments!

About the fear of heights:
They were a little bit nervous at the beginning, but it wasn`t really a problem after a weeks time!
Now they are masters of the Guinnea-Pig-Castle! :-D
