Pet Enclosure

This past Christmas, I got a hedgehog (his name is Sherlock - he's awesome) and the standard plastic enclosure just didn't seem right so I decided to build him something nicer. It is a modular design that stacks. This allows to give him more square footage later by adding a second floor. It is framed with pocket holes, has changeable panel inserts, and fold out glass panes for ease of access. All of his toys and supplies store neatly in the bottom cabinets and a lid finishes it off. Later I can just build another tank level and stack it on top.

  • Wow! That must be one happy hedgehog! This is a fantastic design and beautifully executed. The finish color is awesome! Did you create the plans yourself?

    • Thank you! He does seem quite happy with it. I couldn't quite find any enclosures that would fit the application just right, so yes I did end up making my own plans.

  • You did an amazing job! Wouldn't be surprised to find some copy-cats down the road. Thanks for sharing this with us!
