01/02/21 UPDATE: Due to the Global Pandemic and National lock down, we have been once again forced to close our workshop to new orders. Under these restrictions, it's just not possible to source some of the materials that we need to make our products. This is because many of our suppliers have been forced to close or offer a limited service in lock down restrictions. As soon as restrictions are eased and our supply chain issues are resolved we'll open for new orders. We apologise for the inconvenience, but hope you understand this is a problem caused by COVID restrictions. We'll update this information as the situation develops.
11/02/21 UPDATE: An opportunity for us to move to our dream workshop space has become available and we've decided that whilst we're closed for new orders due to COVID issues (lock down causing issues with materials), now could be the perfect time to move! The workshop relocation begins at the end of February and we hope to be fully operational in the new workshop by mid March. During the move, our phone lines won't work so please contact us via email if you need to get in touch.
Here at ScratchyCats - we build cat scratching posts, cat trees and towers and all things 'Scratchy' at our Devon workshop every single day. Sometimes, things can get a little repetitive so it's nice to do something totally different every now and again.
We love it when customers ask us to build something a bit unique and unusual - so we jumped at the chance to build a bespoke tree house for one of our customers.
The initial brief was simple. To come up with a cat tree that looked like a tree house - "Please go to town I am open to a funky tree house design something a bit unusual shape wise."
So with a fairly open brief and a rough requirement for the size of the tree house we set to work at sketching out some ideas. Whilst our daughter was in bed I took the opportunity to use her felt tip pens and the initial concept was born. We sent the sketched design to the customer for approval and it was an instant hit.
We then began work on making the tree house from scratch at the workshop. On this page we'll share photos of the finished project as well as some photos of the build process.
If you like this sort of content, it's well worth following us on Instagram where we share regular workshop videos and short vlogs.
Here are a few photos from the workshop showing the build process of the tree house. Follow us on Instagram to see more custom build projects including regular video updates.
