This is great. Seems simple to build and perfect for them to come and go as they please.

Cute torti!

I would screw down a rubber horse stall mat on the ramp and get rid of that blanket asap.

Very nice setup, Skipper and Buddy must be very happy to have a great new home to hang their hat on after a busy day "mowing the lawn and grooming the yard".

This is one of the best I've seen. Can you tell us how the inside is set up? I find the whole heating / lamp / thermostat thing to be confusing. Is it heated in there?

Yes there is a heat lamp inside. I have not needed to turn it on yet since I live in AZ and it has not been too cool. The heat lamp is attached to a shelf that was built inside. The entire roof lifts up which makes cleaning easier. I put hay in yesterday and they slept inside for the first time :) I just looked in and they are back inside again.

Could you share how it lifts up? Is it on hinges on one end, maybe with a prop to keep it up? Or are those boards I see attached around the bottom-outside edge keeping it from slipping off?

That is a very nice house. I love their little rug leading into the house.
Thanks for sharing this!
