New room setup

Hi, thought I'd share the new room setup I have for my critters. There's still some changes to be made, by I do like it even now. It's bigger than the room they were in, the room has a nice color and style (other was mute and boring), I can use the treadmill in here and do crafts, and the back half of the room has a separate light, so the Chinese hamsters can stay more in the dark while I have the front light on. The disadvantage is it's less insulated, so it gets hotter and colder than the rest of the house. I have the ceiling fan going.

I hope you can see the photos ok. I attached them with my phone.

    Looks lovely and spacious. It might be worth keeping a thermometer in there if you're concerned about changes in temperature so you can monitor it but overall, very impressive.

    Thank you Ann. :) I can easily tell by walking in. I am very sensitive to temperature. The upstairs has a separate AC unit so I keep that going during the day already, but have to keep the fan on for an extra breeze in that room. If it gets difficult to keep an eye on, I'll get the thermometer set I can read from downstairs, like what we have for outside.

    That looks like a lovely area! Do you find the animals are okay with the sound of the treadmill?

    That looks like a really great set up :) Plenty of space and no one too close to anyone else :)

    Looks great!  I wish I could keep my mouse/craft room as neat as that! :P

    Yes, I feel the same (hides in shame).

    Thank you! I have not tried the treadmill since the move, but the hamsters would likely be asleep when I use it. I have to do physical therapy before I can get back on it again. But I would guess if I use it during the day, the hamsters would sleep through it and the mice wouldn't be too bothered. The room won't always look that organized. lol I tend to make a mess! And get bedding all over the floor. :p I took a panoramic plot for my sister that shows the layout better. Hope this works.

    No sofa. It's a recliner. Just looks wide because panorama distorts a bit. Thank you though! :)
