Default Wooden house with removable roof wanted

Hi, does anyone know who sells a wooden house with a removable roof big enough for a Syrian hamster? I can't find one in the shops or online.

Rodipet do some great houses with removable tops, have a look at the granite or labyrinth.

I have the large labyrinth house for our Syrian It's huge though - your cage needsto big enough for it! I have the one with the lift off dish on top - saves taking the whole roof off each time. He does love it though. He nests in the front left partition and used the toilet in the middle back partition (which was where I put the litter tray). I've now had to move the toilet to the right partition - and he uses it there, because he wanted the back middle one for an enormous hoard.

If you just want a house with a lift off roof, and not with a litter tray inside (I think you mentioned your hammy uses a litter tray in the corner of the cage, then this one is a good size. Far too small for a guinea pig - slightly smaller than the two room house linked above. It fits together like a jigsaw- no nails. The door is large though so it works best with a bendy bridge tunnel over the door.

As they're all wood, you would need to paint them with plasti kote(pet safe) water based enamel paint so they're wipe clean in case of accidents/soiling.

These are popular too and not so huge

Hi thanks for info. I've ordered the Ferplast guinea pig house on Amazon because it will be here tomorrow and I don't like waiting. I just want to be able to check on my hamster without waking him or disturbing his nest.

I think that's a good option and not too expensive either I actually had the rabbit sized one at one point so I could fit the toilet inside but it filled up the cage too much as it's huge.

I have the guinea pig one but not given to any hamster yet! Tarak (syrian) has the labarynth from zooplus. Its great.

The main thing is to put it on a deeeep layer of substrate so that your hamster can burrow. Tarak has some love!y food stashes going on under his nest.

Pets at home have a series of wooden houses for most small animals. I think the house is called thistle cottage.
Hope this helps

Serendipity, the house maze is fantastic. Thanks for posting the link for Ria. I'm going to look to see if I can buy it here. If I can't buy it here, I will try to make a version and I will post a new thread with instructions if anyone else wants to make one.

The guinea pig house is great, too.

Henry was annoyed when i removed his little house and pee'ed in the plant pot to make his point then had a right old dig next to it but he didn't have to wait long for his new big house with his old bedding in it. After a proper sniffing inspection he made his bed and moved in.
