A note before starting. 

Please understand - the below diagrams are genuinely and carefully designed to help you navigate the build process. However, we don’t include specific recommendations for which tools, hardware, and products to use, and so on. These truly are “DIY” designs. 

We do, however, have a few generic recommendations for working with PVC.

How to make a Double Cat Bed out of pvc pipe

How do you know which part is which from the parts list? Click on "Edit Design in 3D" button above and you'll be able to click on each part to see its name.

Step 1 

First up: the bottom frame. 

To start, first gather all the pieces you’ll need using the diagram above as a guide. 

Then, go ahead and connect all the individual pipes and elbows in the manner pictured above. These should all just slide right into each other. 

Once you’re done, go ahead and set your finished bottom frames aside for now.

Step 2

Now, you’ll want to join both your seats together. 

For this step, attach both of your seats to four 12” tubes, as pictured above.

Step 3

Next, the upper frames. 

Assembling these will be similar to assembling your bottom frames. Grab all your necessary pieces, and then attach them using the diagram above as a guide.


Step 4 

Almost done!

Now, it’s time to put it all together. 

You might want to lay your middle part (the bed) on it’s side to make this step easier. 

Finally, go ahead and attach all your finished parts together. When you’re done, you should have a double cat bed that looks just like the picture above. 

And that’s it! Great job. 

We hope your cats appreciate it too!
