The end and internal walls
Step 3: Fix the end walls
Out of 1/2″ (13mm) plywood, cut the two end wall panels both 26-3/4″ (680mm) wide and 18-1/2″ (470mm) high at one side, raking down to 16-1/2″ (419mm) high the other side.
Refer to Plan 3 for detail.
Stand the unit on end and fix one end wall, then flip the unit over and do the same on the other end.
Refer to the picture Plan 3 for detail and placement.
Step 4: Cut and fix the internal wall
The internal wall divides the box into two rooms.
One room is without a floor, where the guinea pig can frolic on (and eat) the grass.
The other is a shelter area with a floor and no windows.
Out of 1/2″ (13mm) plywood, cut the internal wall panel 26″ (660mm) wide and 18-1/2″ (470mm) high at one side, raking down to 16-1/2″ (419mm) high the other side.
Rebate the four corners around the horizontal wall-frame members. Refer to Plan 4.
Cut out the doorway according to the dimensions given in Plan 4.
Fix the internal wall to the top and bottom cross-member framing pieces.
