Build your own hamster cage – photo guide


Hazel’s cage. Can you find her in the picture?

If you have seen Hazels big hamster cage in some of my posts and you have wondered how we have built it then have a look at the following pictures!

I can’t give any detailed step-by-step description as I my boyfriend has done most of the work :) But maybe some of you can find some inspiration to build your very own big cage for your furry little friend.

Here we go.

Let me know if you are interested in some more detailed information about how this cage has been built or what material we have used! I’m sure Ross is more than happy to help as he is really proud of his little project :)

    How do you deal with the problem of urine? Or do yours have a specific spot they go and you placed something there?

      Hey Stephanie,
      Hazel usually pees in one corner that is close to where she sleeps. I always put a piece of poly pocket there ( i fold it up a little bit so that it covers the wall as well) and some sheets of kitchen roll on top. The sheets I change once a week. Very easy, quick and clean :)

    Stephanie, this is truly amazing! I’ve been browsing for a new cage since the pet store sold me one that is way too small. You have inspired me to design my own. I am fortunate to be married to a woodworker. :) My hamster too has a chosen corner to pee, but he kinda just poops anywhere. My question is, how often do you change out the bedding? I do once a week now but with that much space, I’m thinking more like once a month would be sufficient. Also, did y’all make the ramps and water bottle holder as well? Any tips on that? I’m worried about adhesives or anything that would be toxic cause my little guy loves to chew.
