Chris "krups1110's" Cage

Postby Joan » Wed May 03, 2006 5:30 pm

Chris' cage is 4'x3'x2' and it has a removeable tray that slides into the bottom, but has mesh above it so in reality it is on a shelf just under the cage. The mesh is 1/2" hardware cloth. There are small shelves on the back and front and a larger one on the right side. It has two apple tree branches in there. I have a ferret hammock in there. There is also two bowls for food and water and I have a tiki hut. I am going to buy a stealth wheel and order a regular nest box, too.

Joan wrote:Charlie built the cage of inexpensive pine and spruce because he figured the guys will probably eat part of it,
but it does look good enough for his rustic living room even though he can't find a spot for it. He set it up for
now in his office.
Note the "Go Back Doors" in the main doors.
The cage is 7 1/2 feet tall by 32 inches by 25 inches - too big to move efficiently, so Charlie built it in sections
that fit together neatly with wood dowel pins - there are no screws holding the final assembly together. It can
be quickly disassembled to move to another location. (See picture four)

Well, first of all I have to decide if I want to put myself through it again. Remaking the same thing isn't always as much fun as making something new. That being said, remaking the cage would let me correct the errors I made with the first one - so I guess its a wash if I were to make another cage.

Cost? Well, I had about $250.00 in material costs, and it took roughly 70 - 80 hours of my time.

In any event, shipping may be a problem. My cage breaks down very easily into three sections - top, middle, and bottom. The top and bottom sections are rigid and the middle section comes apart so the four sides can be shipped flat and bundled together. It all fits together with 8 wooden pegs - no screws or "assembly" involved. But the sections are large and getting cardboard boxes large enough might be a problem. I know the local UPS store has some very large boxes available. I'll check and see what they have. Otherwise, you may want to drive to Chattanooga and pick it up - assuming you have an SUV, van or pickup truck.

If you truly are intested, call me at 423-886-4568 and we can discuss it.

One more thing. Recalling a comment Joan made about the cage, I have decided to include an additional drawer under the existing drawer so you can store flyer accessories and other stuff. The overall size of the cage will be 7' 63/4" high, 33 3/4" wide and 24 1/2" deep.

Im about to make my flyer a new cage, since im off school for summer this Friday!! YAY! well, anyway, this is what it will look like. If you want to know why its shaped like a backwards L, its because there is a window there and I do not want to cover it up!

Here is one of our cages that is also a breakdown cage but not as elegant as Charlies materpiece. it will come apart and is bolted together. four sides and top and bottom. i hang tree branches in it for my critters. the dimensions are 7 ft tall, by 2 ft wide and four foot deep. when put together it is a couple of inches longer on two sides. we also do a 4ft by 4ft by 7 ft tall made the same way.

We also do sell these cages and dimensions can be altered.

Jimmy and Barnie's new cage

Postby Vickie » Sat Jul 19, 2008 7:13 pm

Image

My husband built this duplex for Jimmy and Barnie. It has 8 doors for ease in cleaning/decorating/squirrel returning, and one slide out "gate" divider in the center of each level. If and when Jimmy and Barnie can live together, we'll simply remove the dividers and it will be one big cage. My husband's favorite part of his design is that it's all "modular", so we can easily take it apart into 4 units to move it, and he can also add another level across the top.
First Barnie, and now Jimmy--Zing, went the strings of my heart!

Here is the new cage we made for Momo. It was relatively inexpensive and easy to make, and she loves it! Here are some useful tips:

-we used plastic wreath (rubbermaid style) containers for the top and bottom. It's Christmastime, so you can find these everywhere for about $10-15 dollars. It was easy to poke holes in the top to wire it to the cage

-we used shelving bars as structure and support, as well as something to wire the mesh to. These were only about $10 at the local hardware store.

-wire chicken mesh- total about $20, plus picture hanging wire was the rest of it. We used the picture hanging wire to "sew" it all together!

-topsoil dirt (cost about $1 at Lowe's) fills the bottom of her cage. This is great as it allows her to naturally dig to stash seeds, and also it keeps smells at bay. We have a live plant in the middle, and all of Momo's waste becomes a natural fertilizer for the plant. No more cleaning out the cage every three days!

Total cost? Under $50, and a little 'sweat equity' for an awesome home!

-PS- as a fix for the "peeing through the wires out onto the floor" issue, we purchased a car-bed liner designed for dogs. It is specifically made for animal messes, and it is machine washable. When it gets too dirty, we can just throw it in the wash! It catches all her pee. It also has a pleasant orange citrus smell to it.
