We build a castle for our cats. It was easy to assemble but takes a little bit time.
The dimension are height: 150 cm
wide: 80 cm
depth: 60 cm
For structure, we use osb and wood bars. Around 1 plaque of osb and around 4 meter wood bar.
For upholstery, flock fabric ( anti cat scratching) ( around 8 meters)
for the hammock and doors, plush ( around 2-3 meters)
for the upper hammock, a fabric looks like leather.
I recommend the flock fabric for making it durable. Also if they cat climb, they have to follow the road to reach up. (=
for scratching bars, we used around 60 meters rope.
Tools are needed;
Stamp ( prefer to use electrical or compressor working ) dont use manual stamps for your wrist health.
also you can use non toxic wood glue.
Step 1: Building the Structure
To build cylinders, 4 mm mdf sliced 3 cm pieces. Quantity depends how
radius you prefer your cylinder. We glued slices of mdf on a regular fabric and to cover the cylinder. But first you have to make a structure for it.
I also recommend to upholster inside of cylinder for safety.
Step 2: Decorating
Making balcony was not easy. I am sorry I dont have any photos structure of balconies but just a circle wood piece and upholstered. Assemble with screws but to make stronger we tied it with rope. Also it fits conceptual (=
We covered doors with plush to hide bad craftmanship.
Step 4: Attaching the Final Floor
