I think there are vents on either side. Maybe you could include a fan to circulate the air?

The woman who built the Ikea Hack Hamster Mansion's blog. It has pictures of some beautiful cages.

I think why I really loving this Ikea Hack cage is because it recreates a hamster's natural environment.

Ikea hacker is a blog that features how people all over the world have re-purposed Ikea flat pack furniture into different uses. Example: This cage was originally an Ikea bookshelf turned into a hamster cage.

OMG that's so intense. I wish I had the skill to build that for my hammy...but then i'd have to build two. I'd feel bad if i left one in a small tank and one in a mansion
