Chinchilla Dwellings

We have found throughout the years that all chins seem to find that one spot in the cage they like to hang out the most. Sometimes it's up high, sometimes it's down low, and sometimes it's just in the middle. So, to try pleasing the pickiest of chins, we offer several different styles of cage dwellings for you to choose from.

All of our products are made "pet safe" by only using materials that are safe for your pets. Non-toxic wood glue and ¾" untreated kiln-dried (KD) pine are our materials of choice. This means that you needn't worry about their natural instinct to chew away at it.

Don't see anything you have in mind? No problem! Just send us a message with your idea and we'll see if we can design it for you.

All dwellings come standard with 4" door openings, 1" edging, and one 1-5/8" window, unless noted. You also have the option of adding a 4" roof-hole, a 4" window, or an additional 1-5/8" window, depending upon the dwelling chosen for a small-added fee. The 4" window openings are recommended only on our larger deluxe dwellings.

** Most of the hardware we use are screws & washers unless otherwise noted.

** Please note side doors on houses can be made in reverse from what is pictured (Left or Right).

Here are some of the great choices of dwellings we offer for you to choose from.
