re-doing my room SAFETY?

Im completely re doing my room..

im sanding down the old "childish flowers and bugs" paint and completely painting it all over .. im planning to have silhouette birds flying around a big silhouette tree and i already have a silhouette bird cage with some birds

since the sanding down of the walls and re painting can be dangerous to ice ( even though she is in a whole different room) im wondering what the best thing to do for her..

i could keep her where she is ..

she is about 150 feet from my bedroom..(i could keep the door shut) but im worried that she can still smell the fumes..

or she could go in the basement for the time being( its a bit chilly down there so ill have her cage covered all day partly and then a heat lamp as well


what do you think?? any other suggestions? she could go in the living room as well.. but that is in direct contact with the kitchen
( we got stainless steel pans )

any help appreciated

I'm glad you finally got those pans hehe

I think she would be fine in the basement, providing she has light and heat, and people to interact with

I can imagine so but I use them for reptiles and stuff and I have never had a problem with them I don't think they would, it would be highly unlikely. You could get a small tubular heater and pop it on the wall under her cage, I have them in my outdoor bird room (the UK is pretty cold) and they work a charm. Not so fun when you bend over to clean stuff out and burn your butt on them

You gotta love all natural pans I MADE my mom replace all of hers
I don't think that the heat lamp will catch on fire... also are you keeping the lights on in the basement?

Missing you always

I keep my birds in the dining room which is right off the kitchen, i also have mostly stainless steel pans.. I have never had a problem with my birds from cooking... I do have a rabbit air purifier so maybe that helps.. I dunno... as long as she is warm and safe is the important thing... do what you think is best!

So I put off these plans but we are starting next week, everything is covered and ready for sanding/painting.

I know the sanding part will be really bad for her because of all the dust..
And the paint fumes as well

So Ice will be in living in the family room downstairs by the kitchen.
I'm really happy about this because I'm at school now and she is used to 5+ hours a day but now she only gets about 2-4. So being with the family whileim gone will be great for her
When we cook (even though we have safe pans) she will be put in a small cage upstairs..

So ya, just thought I would do an update!
