A new habitat is work in progress for a while because you'll find out what the hamster does and wants once they start to settle in.
There are plenty of household items you can use for hides like flower pots, mugs, oil burners, Pringle tubes etc.
I wouldn't worry about moss, you can add greenery with dried hamster herbs, millet sprays etc.

I'd set it all up and post a photo.
Been meaning to set it up but because I'm moving it's been a bit hectic. I should be able to get it all done by Thursday night hopefully, or worst comes to the worst, Friday night.

& Thanks for the link!
