HI there,

There's a removable plastic litter box that fits right inside the cavity so you can simply lift it out whenever you need to.

You can see just the corner of it in the photo!

Built-in litterbox - What do you mean by "its own ventilation system"? Is the galvanized steel intended to make the inside easier to clean? Is it difficult to get access inside to clean the walls in case of spraying or "accidents"? --Beth

Hi,

There's a branch of ductwork that comes down from the standard ceiling exhaust fan into the top of the catbox area, right behind the open shelves. With the flip of a switch any pungent kitty odors can be pulled right out of the room.

The bottom and sides of the catbox cavity are lined with galvanized sheet metal with sealed seams so in the event of an accident or poor aim, nothing is soaking into sheetrock or framing.

I sized the space so the homeowners could use a standard plastic box to hold the litter, which can be easily removed for cleaning. We were initially going to put a hinged door with a smaller cutout to allow for removal of the box, but ultimately decided against it. Because of the larger opening it's very easy to reach inside if necessary.

I assume you are talking about the wainscot? The lower half of the room is wrapped in horizontal tongue and V-groove boards, painted white. This material is easily found, available at most lumberyards. Then we simply topped it with a chair rail to give it a finished look.

They sell them at most home stores but you can try to find a good lumber yard that sell paneling. They will have a wide range either on hand or available through a catalog. Basically you can hang them vertical or horizontal. In you case it looks like they went horizontal and the ledge above is a simple ledge moulding or rail moulding that you can cap the top of the boards with using penny nails, or some adhesive and then a caulk for the seams.

Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Pets: 50 Cats Cozy Up at Home
For indoor cat owners, a litter box is simply a fact of life. That said, nobody wants to make it a particularly visible one. This one is tucked, fittingly, into a corner of the bathroom. The luxurious litter accommodation comes complete with galvanized sheet metal lining and its own ventilation system.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Pet Problems Solved by Design
4. Hiding the litter box. The litter box is by far the major downside of having a cat. Figuring out where to put this thing so your cat isn't doing its business in front of everyone and the smell doesn't permeate the house can be quite a challenge. The bathroom ends up being a safe choice for most home-owners, and I love how this built-in area makes the litter box nearly invisible.
I think it's kind of funny that the cat toilet is right next to the people toilet. If you have a box in your secret litter area, choose one with a roof that has a carbon filter to prevent odors from escaping.
