    im actually gonna try to attempt this, by making the chair from Mr. Muggle and then shortening its legs, and get rid of the back-rest thing.

    Easily, Just use 3D connectors at the joints and make a sheet about halfway up. For pets, at least.

    I built this a while ago with my other account but it is really neat. But it uses a ton of pieces.

    i dont think i have enough pieces......... can you make a smaller house? i have a cat and he just wanders around and never sleeps but he would probably sleep in that though.

    Just downsize this one-use smaller rods, or just make the walls smaller, or just large enough for your cat.

    really cool, but isn't it using to many pieces? 5/5.

    it isn't necessarily using too many pieces. most are for supporting the door, which is quite heavy for the frame, and the roof. i guess you could use all greys and red crossbeams instead of the yellow with the red crossbeams.

    i just want to say that it is really good, but only for people with that many pieces, and they will probably build something like the SR-V1. it is cool, but the huge 'negative' piece count is really killing the 'positive' originality and usefullness. and i don't think an outraged pet can't destroy those walls. so it is more of a cathouse, not suitable for dogs.

    yes, i agree with the piece thing. i did mainly make it for my cats, and the Sr-V1 uses a lot more pieces than ill ever have(just for a yellow connector count, it uses 335) and this house used most of my pieces. maybe ill make a smaller version.
