Big RAT house for the rat

Materials: Gorm system

Description: You might be asking..”What a strange introduction to a hack..” I’d like to introduce the house of our 5 rat girls..

As a new cage for our rat pack would be WAAAY to gf and i decided to have a go at it ourselves..Meaning – I’d have a go 😉

It all started with a trip to the nearest Ikea store and the purchase of this.

Price ok, everything ok..and now what??

This is how it looked when we got it home..

You will need one of these..

Cut pieces…


Special tray for food, toys…stuff 🙂

Wheels for extra mobility (2.99€ for 4)

Activate this..:)

The neighbours like me a bit less..but what has to be done, has to be done..

As we all know how sneaky rats are… I’d rather put in 100 extra staples than search for the rat in our apartment.

The netting is cheaper in a roll than in one piece… we need the same thing to hold the Space Shuttle together…cable ties.

The best cage is useless without doors..

Take care you get straight pieces… crooked wood will not help your project..


Interior design…

Fresh from England..Sputnik rat houses..

Litter box with small Samla toilet.., rat Manca has to pose..

The 2-nd Sputnik hanging on the ceiling-again – cable ties..:)

I hope you like my work..:)
