Materials: Ikea Billy bookshelf, Dioder four piece lighting strip set, multicolour
Description: Sarah shares how to make a two storey hamster apartment with panoramic views of your living room. It’s fairly straight forward and may take a day or less to complete.
The hamster cage is made out of a ‘Billy bookshelf’ with the lucky hamsters occupying the top two “floors”. A glass panel is hinged onto the top shelf. The bottom half has an acrylic sheet secured against the front to allow for a thick layer of wood shavings and happy hamster digging time.
Vents are added for circulation. Red LED lights too so you can spy on your hamster to your heart’s content.
