There’s a stray cat who hangs around our apartment but doesn’t trust us enough to come inside and warm up. A few times I’ve come out to find her asleep under my car or in one of the garbage cans. I figured that’s no way to spend the winter, especially considering how cold it gets around these parts so I did up this cozy ‘cat barn’ out of some wood I had lying around.
The base is made from pressure treated 2×4s so we don’t have to worry about it rotting anytime soon. I covered the p-t lumber in some 1×4 kiln dried pine so she wouldn’t poison herself if she decided to nibble on it. The barn is insulated with old dryer lint and a beat up pair of pyjama pants and it even has carpet!
It’s probably warmer in there than it is in our old apartment…
