Here is one.
This is Rascals for the time being, as it is smaller than I wanted I may make it RoAs' instead but not sure if the mesh is too large. RoA is a Dwarf.

here is a topview of my 'vision'.

I have to cut the wood a little because it was large than I anticipated.
I made a little staircase out of Popsicle sticks.

I needed to see how much space was underneath and used the cans to hold up the woodXD.
Just need a few more things before I can put it in.


Making sure the top of the wheel fit into the hole i cut for it. As you can see I dont have it meshed or anything. Heck I hadnt even really sat down to put the holes in.

before i cut the window in. Making sure it would all fit and look okay.

Final product. ( I blurred my messy room :/)



if you're wondering about the tape, i have it covering the zipties and around the mesh. Just so noone gets caught on it.
I have clear packing tape around the window.
this is what he was in before. Someone pointed out that the wheel was not suitable and can cause problems. Which the injury on his paw was evidence enough. They suggested the wodent wheel and the next day i ordered 2 and they arrived 4 days later.

I would like to credit a few tutorials on these forums! I took the hard way with a lack of tools but I hope my hams will be happier.

That looks really awesome :D
Just be careful rascal doesn't figure out how to get out of the gap above the wheel!

Fluffy- Thankyou :] Oh yes, I have thought of that, I am making a bubble cage around the wheel part. I just need to get new wire cutters as my literally snapped in two :[.

Gizmodo- Thankyou :], and I think he does, he has far more space than he did before and he is interested in his hammock. :D

Ill have to add move pictures.
I am moving Rein of Ash to the 64Qt^ that i made up there and I got 2 105 Qt bins to make Reese and Rascal's cages. More suitable for Syrians. :P

However is the Wire Mesh to big for my Dwarf?
