That is the best possible outcome. Now you can have a cage made to Your specifications. Looking forward to see it.

Aww thank you. You are sweet. He is going to research into materials and plan it. I will be sure to post a picture when it is finished.

Using Ikea stuff is fine. It may be mdf but it's encased in melamine - perfectly safe. the important thing is not to have any raw edges of mdf (without melamine on) that could be chewed.

Have a look at the Linmon diy cage.

DIY Ikea Linnmon Hamster Cage 🐹 877 sq ins for the same price as a pet store cage! - YouTube

Or an easier option (and probably cheaper would be buy a 100cm Savic Plaza cage and get some good accessories for it (eg a better shelf at one end and a good labyrinth house). It has a nice big front opening door and good for any hamster. I have a robo in it right now but had to make adjustments for a dwarf hamster, due to the height, for safety.
