An Ikea Expedit Bookcase Turned Hamster Mansion Pet Projects

The framework of Fred’s house is based on an Ikea Expedit 5-by-5 bookshelf. Katja removed the dividers on two of the floors in order to create large spaces for Fred to run around in. The sections of the bookcase that are intended for Fred are reinforced by backs that feature cutouts for vents to allow for proper ventilation. Top to botton glass doors are installed on the fronts of all of Fred’s cubes, which keeps Fred safely inside, but allows Katja easy access for cleaning — via Pawesome

      Please learn to use the internets to follow links back to their source.

      Am guessing Home Depot is some even worse US incarnation of Bunnings. As such, it is not the centre of the hardware/DIY universe. Try looking up glass merchants or glaziers and asking about cut to size glass. Think who you would call if you needed a window at home replaced

    Or just do what I did, and destroy your landlords antique crockery hutch that you found in storage in the shed that you were not supposed to go in and get evicted and lose you bond.
