It would be 5 star if the tops actually snapped in place. As others reported they are easy to pop off. Im going to place these within a heavy fir tree which solves the problem for me. But if out in the open, a nut/bolt or gorilla glue would be good to hold it in one piece.
I used mostly materials I had in my home already. I started with a bamboo garden stake that turned out to be the perfect diameter for the rear air vents. I cut two small pieces to the correct length and inserted them as backer rods, and then siliconed the vents inside and out. To make the front opening smaller, I glued the front panel of an old litter box with some epoxy and siliconed around the edges. I used a hairdryer to soften the plastic and cut it into shape with some snips. Interesting to note that I went through 2 spare litter boxes. Both came from Petco, but one was made in China and was so brittle that it kept cracking and shattered. The second, made in the US, was more pliable plastic and cut like butter.
For insulation, the easiest thing to use would have been 1" rigid Styrofoam insulation with foil backing. However, since it comes in 8 foot sheets, I couldn't fit one of these into my car! Instead I bought a roll of Reflectix insulation at HD and used it with some leftover Styrofoam I had at home. I cut sheets of both materials for the floor, ceiling and walls, glued them together with Gorilla carpenter's glue (white glue doesn't stick very well) and wrapped silver foil tape around the edges to seal them. Reflectix is great stuff: non-toxic, adds extra warmth, prevents kitty claws from damaging the Styrofoam and is easy to wipe down if the cat sprays inside. So I created a box within a box with the six panels. Finally, I added some straw bedding, also purchased at HD for 10 bucks (one bale, which is probably a year supply), snapped the lid in place and sealed the closure tabs with Gorilla tape.
The interior dimensions with the insulated panels in place are approximately 18" L x 11.5" W x 11.5" H. The new opening is about 6" H x 7.5" W. Perfect for one cat to snuggle inside during winter. My cat Priscilla gave it a test run before I put the lid in place. In the summer you could take out the ceiling and wall panels and have room for two cats. I have to say that even with the extra work and money to make this thing weatherproof, it was a fun project and the final result is still way more affordable than the Kitty Tube I bought previously. The Petbarn is also sturdy plastic and weighs 10-12 lbs, so if you keep it outside up near a wall, like I do, it's heavy enough not to blow away. I have a townhome with no front porch, so I have the Petbarn tucked up against the house behind my azaleas. The first night I had it out Blackjack was already in it!
Although I managed to get the rain out, it's an ice box in the winter. The walls are super thin, and the opening is quit large so it doesn't keep the wind out. But this year, I've found a solution. I spent a good 5 hours cutting up insulation and putting it against all the inside walls. My cat seems much cozier and the inside of the house is way warmer.
It doesn't get super cold here in Mount Goatmore, Texas but when you're used to 60s and 70s right up until the day winter decides to drop by and bring its 20s and 30s with it, a warm, dry, sheltered den to get out of the cold, wet and wind can be a life saver.
We have both pet barns on the covered back porch with the entrances facing out of the wind. With a thick layer of hay inside and a heat reflecting pet pad, our two formerly feral porch cats (had 'em neutered, vaccinated, and chipped) think they're the greatest thing since canned cat food. Once the sun goes down, they settle themselves in their respective cat hooches and don't come out until daylight.
These do need some sort of padding on the bottom, and a heat reflecting pet pad is a definite plus. As long as you don't back over them with the tractor, these will last forever.
UPDATE 15AUG17: Bought a third one for our latest porch cat to have her kittens in.
