Recycling furniture

Recommended Posts

My daughter will be moving out in the not too distant future and we were looking into making a hutch for indoors for "MY" ferrets when she takes them with her, I googled the idea of indoor hutches and these came up, I thought they would be perfect for her, anyone ever do similar

Seen few units into vivs but the glass fronted ones for ferrets will get smeary real quick I would thought? And not enough ventilation. 

Why not look for secondhand indoor cage? See plenty on Facebook market place over here.

I would definitely stick to mesh. Glass and Perspex if sunlight hit it would turn into an oven ......

Seen a lot of people online own "ferret nation" cages for indoors.  Some of them look tidy size

Inch welded mesh is out choice of fronts, I've no intention of using glass, the heat build up. Would be too severe I reckon

I left 2 draws in, so when cleaning just pull them out and tip in the barrow...

any finished photo FF,thats my plan too ,leave the last bottom drawer in,even though you should look in to a litter box,they are spotless animals of habit...once they start using it they never miss,my daughter leaves one in the floor of the bedroom and they never have an accident,straight to the litter box every time ,she uses some form of recycled paper pellets and its odourless too ,

What concerns me with anything wood, however well sealed, is that it's almost impossible to prevent odor from the urine soaking in to some extent.

Our youngsters use a litter tray,and never soil anywhere else, but its only going to be an indoor hutch for an hour or two each day ,ther main abode will be out in a shed in the garden...what do you use to house them  yourself FL

I use 3 level plastic coated wire cages (20" or 24"  x 36") for all of mine and put linoleum tile squares on the wire floors.  They're easily cleaned and the tiles can be replaced if necessary.  I have a large ferret room in the house plus the four run groups take turns with free  roam in the house and outdoor pen.

All mine are kept in the house.  When I switched to a raw/whole prey diet (in 2005) from kibble, the odor almost completely disappeared.  The only time I notice any odor in a hob is when they're in rut and that's about 90% less than it was on a kibble diet.
