Hello everyone. Thought I would make a quick thread about the monster cages my hubby is building for me. I'm kinda like the supervisor or foreman. Lol. Anyways, what we did was picked a corner spot in our basement. Attached a header board like you would do a deck on back of a house. 2 sides of the cages are the basement walls. We enclosed the top and bottom and sides attaching it to both the ceiling aka my floors and concrete. This thing will literally not move an inch. The wood is all 2x3 instead of 2x4 and we get free wood palletts that are 4 feet so half the wood is from that. Pictures are progression of build. It's all been done so far in about a week. (See we can hustle if we want). Super easy. Heating will be flexwatt over snap and lock flooring like other cages I built. Using a day light also. We have oil heaters downstairs to help keep room temps up until we install the add on wood burning furnace. It stays about 65-70 without all of it in winter. The wood burning stove will pipe into the exsisting ductwork while simultaneously heating basement. I'll literally be able to almost turn heating off or barely use it. For the doors, we actually bought a full view glass door (really cheap at 50.00 if you know where to look). It's one that has 2 pieces of glass instead of one well tear it apart for the glass then build frames and attach. Total project about 150.00ish. Project #2: Were also getting these free wooden boxes this week that are 8x3x3 (were getting 15 of them for FREE!!) We plan on building doors and then putting seperators at various lengths (4 ft, 5 ft, etc or just using all 8 feet on some). Can you say awesome. Just order enough heat tape for heat, linoleum for sides and snap and lock flooring for bottom and viola well have a lot of cages. Many cool changes coming!
