“I wanted to find something online, but there just wasn’t anything. The only thing I could find was either super expensive or for a smaller dog, and they would all be custom-made. I was like, I don’t have that capability. I have power tools and nothing else. So I found on

Oh, I can use Malm on the outside and Kallax on the inside. And then I put standard wooden bed slats on top, and I can pull the crate in and out to get the storage. The only thing I needed to do was make sure they were all anchored well. The whole thing took me two hours.”
