From building kitty perches to the planning, building and installation of the outdoor kitty haven ... this board will detail in pictures some of the steps, missteps and detours on the way to what I think is a pretty good result!
IKEA hack window bench.  Made from their coffee table and 2 side tables.   I lowered the bottom shelf of the coffee table.    Cardboard tube sisal rope scratching posts  on the back two legs of the top side table were added  before joining the two tables together.  Custom platform the same size as the coffee table to meet the window ledge for stretching out in the sun.  Purrfect for catching the early morning sun.

I needed a kitty window lounger for my two new rescue kitties and it had to blend in with my all-IKEA lounge.

Bottom of netting screwed or nailed to installed baseboards.    Synthetic grass laid over decking with weed mat.  Furniture built out of treated pine and covered in off cuts of synthetic grass and carpet tiles.  Scratching post on main tower covered in an offcut of carpet.
