The base of this deluxe pallet cat house is a sturdy pallet that was perfect for the job, and it's entertaining shelter for our kitties. Additionally, we only paid ten dollars for miscellaneous hardware!

Building the Ground Level

I started by making a ground level box on top of the sturdy pallet. I used some scrap flooring as the base of the box. Next, I framed the bottom and sides and clad them with pallet deck boards and scrap plywood. Additionally, I used some plywood that I screwed deck boards onto and cut round kitty doors into them. Basically, frame up a sturdy box, and ensure the top of the box frame is all level to support the 2nd level.

Building the 2nd Floor:

The second floor is similar to the ground level. Frame a box to the dimensions you like. Cover the floor and all the sides with deck boards. I cut openings into the floor to create a passageway to the ground level, as well as openings out one side. I framed the bottom a bit wider so that it had a sturdy bottom to sit on the bottom floor. Finally, I installed hinges on one side so that the box can tilt open. Also, I used a 1x1" scrap piece that I fitted with a long screw as a pivot so that I can use that board to prop open the floors to clean if necessary. Or to catch a kitty if they're not feeling well.

Building the Penthouse:

I framed the penthouse similar to the two lower floors, except that instead of straight sides, I made a pitched roof to give it a homey feel. In addition to the pitched roof, I added two small terraces for the cats so they can chill in the sunshine. :) The penthouse is hinged too, with another little board to prop it open as well.

Final Thoughts:

  • All wood comes from pallets I got with a truckload of them and some leftovers I had laying around.
  • I didn't draw a plan up front but built it as I do like most of the time I make stuff. Don't worry about a particular drawing. It doesn't have to be perfect, and you'll learn a lot by experimenting as you go!
  • Everything is cut and sanded by hand because I don't have proper machinery. However, in the future, that will change
  • Everything screwed and not glued. I made this choice because it gives it a raw look of its own I think, and it's also just in case it has no use anymore.
  • I like the idea that it can be disassembled and repurposed again - and again!

P.S. no need for cutting down new trees... we have all the wood we need!!! After you've done with this deluxe pallet cat house, why not build a pallet cat tree for your furry friends?
