Man Spends $50k Building Indoor Playland For 15 Cats – And It’s Odor Free!

Living with a few cats is no big deal, quite ordinary really. However, it would be an understatement to say that most people would be quite turned off at the notion of living in a house with 14 cats. However, it might be a bit less insufferable if, like Californian home-owner Peter Cohen, you managed to devise a way to cultivate an odor-free environment despite the frequency of fecal feline activity. Cohen is no stranger to the ins and outs of home building, having founded construction company Trillium Enterprises with his brother Ken in the late 1980’s.

He began to outfit walls with ramped ledges, catwalks, and tiny cat-specific staircases.

But, the most important feature of all? A series of odor-free closets that house an impressive 22 litter boxes, keeping all cat-specific fragrances confined and controlled. Perhaps even more impressive is how he was able to train all 14 cats, a species notorious for their general disregard for authority. Cohen is always looking for new ways to expand his feline empire, and has become an advocate for the rescue of lost or neglected animals. I’m not sure if all cats go to heaven, but finding yourself living at the Cohen house is the next best thing.

1. Bathroom Ladder

Here’s a simple “ladder” that stands against the wall, offering a convenient place to hang towels or attach hooks to hold toilet paper. (source)


and here’s another


2. DIY Bathroom Hair Dryer Holder

If you’re like anyone else out there who has a hair dryer, electric toothbrush, and shaver laying all over the place you know how crazy it can get. Cords everywhere, just waiting to drop into the toilet and electrocute you to death. At the very least they’re getting in the way. Here’s a nice solution (source)

3. Pebble stone bathmat or doormat

This would be super awesome feeling on my bare feet, and I imagine it only costs $10 or less depending on what materials you have. Basically you get a piece of plastic, some hot glue and some rocks. Glue them to the plastic and boom, instant foot massage out of the shower. (source)

4. Multiple Mirror Layout

Want to make it harder to see yourself? No worries, it looks cool plus it ups the feng shui factor big time. If you’re getting older you don’t really need to see yourself as closely anyways, so the multiple mirror approach is actually a smart one.

5. Add some storage

You’ve got all sorts of things that need sorting, from toothbrushes to cotton balls and q-tips. Use this simple approach for a rustic, functional, and downright simple way to take care of it. It involes a piece of wood for a backing, some adjustable pipe clamps and mason jars.
