“The Hamster House inspired this hack.  We had an abundance of Gorm shelving units and were tired of the look of our traditional bird cage – Blue and Cheesy.  Although the original cage was large, it was not the ideal amount of room.  Our birds, Hamilton and Edith, fly around our apartment on a daily basis when ever we are home (supervised of course) but spend the working hours cooped up.  We wanted to give them a chance to spread their wings when they could and have more diverse perchesir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B001EUJJBQ and toysir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B000FHQKCU to play with.
We modded the Gorm Unit by putting 2 of the five shelves upright on the back to maintain support and cut the cost on the amount of hardware clothir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=ur2&o=1 we would need.  Both sides open up entirely and were built out of spare wood from other projects.  We attached Green Hardware Cloth (10 Bucks a Roll from Home Depot) via staple gun to the interior and made a smaller bird access door.  The Hardware Cloth on the face is attached with open Eye Screws so the entire face can be removed for an easy move.  The entire habitat is relatively light and birds love it so much it is difficult to coax them out (adjustment period I suppose).

We also place linoleum tileir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B000VEUVRC on the bottom that can easily be removed and cleans much easier then dealing with the bird cage tray.”
