Turning an old unwanted dollhouse into a hamster home can be fun for you, thrilling for the hamster and entertaining for everyone who checks it out.
Remove any fabric (for carpet) off the floor or curtains, etc., because it won't be clean for long, and if a bulge or seam exists, it will be chewed and stripped out. Alternatively, use thick layers of paper such as toilet paper, changed frequently, to soak up hamster wee, moisture and mess. Another door alternative is to cut through the wire front and hold the door in place with paperclips or spring clips.
Consider allowing your hamster to be able to see out of some of the windows by using plastic wire netting or wire rather than wood.
This hamster home could serve a range of rodents, such as mice, rats, etc.––it doesn't just have to be for hamsters. Perspex or plexiglass should only be used in small amounts, owing to the potential for heat build-up, blocking of airflow and possible contributor to the build-up of ammonia.

Learning to draw is a great activity that encourages the creativity of children as well as adults.
Step 2: Mark the squares or rectangles that you are going to cut out, using masking tape, or a non-permanent marker. Step 6: Drill holes using an electric drill or soldering iron, so that you can put in the bolts. Please note that The Hamster Place cannot be held responsible for any accidents to you, or your pet. Check that nobody wants it for play, heirloom keeping or for fetching a fortune on eBay because once you've changed it, it's no longer going to be that old dollhouse.
Unless it's particularly grotty, a warm, soapy wash should be sufficient for cleaning the doll house walls, floors and other surfaces.
If these are made of wood or paper, they will need to be waterproofed or you will end up with one stinking mess after a short time. You might need to widen some of the holes leading upstairs and exchange staircases for ladders, etc.
Dollhouses come with a lot of possible exit places, such as windows, doors and an open back or front that allows access to the house.

You'll also need to be able to open the house to remove the hamster for play and cuddling, as well as for cleaning.
Whether it's the back or the front of the dollhouse that opens out or is wall-less, you'll need to stop the hamster bedding from tipping out onto the floor or bench. Drill a hole through the wall of the dollhouse to let the watering tube go through into the inside. Be sure to include ladders and balancing areas to help the hamster move around and stay entertained.
Eliminating airflow coming through a crack should make it less inviting for your pet to investigate and chew. This is really bad for hamsters, as if it gets wrapped around their limbs it could cut off their circulation and if they swallow it, it could cause a deadly blockage in their system.
If you were to grab the hamster suddenly, you would probably get bitten as a startled reaction; so try covering and trapping any escaped hamster with something like a box, or small net on a handle so you can pet him, pick him up and handle him carefully, if he is that tame.

I did a window on each side, but you can also do a window on the top (my lid was corrugated, which made it impossible to cut). I have been very boring, and just left mine the way it is, but if you want, you can spice it up, using stickers, mirrors, and even paint! This is a guide on how to make a bin cage, and you are responsible for making it a safe environment for your pet.
I will be making a cage that is 614 square inches for my upcoming female syrian baby tortoiseshell. Hopefully you'll be able to find most items around the house but you may also need to buy some, and having the measurements worked out in advance will save you money. You'll need to block these up with suitable items, such as hardwood, galvanized wire (hardware cloth), wire mesh, plastic garden "wire" or heavy cardstock. If such a place is in an outer wall, or floor it will, if possible, soon be enlarged to form an escape route.
Use a piece of wood across the base to create a small barrier; nail into place with a good edge overhang to prevent spillage of bedding.
If you want to turn a dollhouse bed into your pet's bed, do that too; in fact, old dollhouse furniture can be upcycled into all sorts of fun hamster things.

Use non-toxic decorating items, just in case of fumes off-gassing through the walls or in case your hamster chews through anything. Start by learning the basic concepts of drawing and improve your drawing technic as you go along. Remember, the more bolts you put in, the more secure the mesh will be, and the less chance of your hammy escaping!
Then I drilled 2 holes either side of the cage, and 2 holes either side of the plank of wood. This is best done on a warm, sunny day to allow for good drying, or if you're able to leave it in a room which is very, very warm. Choose the materials for blocking up the holes according to the sizes of the holes and the need for viewing through the house.
An alternative method would be cutting a hole in a cardboard tube and putting the water bottle in that. He particularly enjoys patrolling recent changes and reviewing articles in the NFD Guardian. They’re not too difficult to do, but make sure you, or a responsible adult is present and able to use electric tools and is fully aware of necessary safety precautions. It is advisable that the part of the house which is most open to viewing (usually the front or the back of the dollhouse), is covered in wire or wire mesh, so that you and the hamster can see through and so that plenty of air circulates through the hamster house.
Choose the solutions to these questions according to the design of the dollhouse you're using.
He loves the team spirit of the community, and after collaborating with so many like-minded editors on the site, he has also enjoyed getting to meet them in real life at wikiHow meet-ups. For new members of the community, he says, “Don’t be afraid to get your feet wet and make some mistakes. You will also need a jigsaw, and an electric drill, or a soldering iron, but most people have these in their sheds already.
