Good housing for a monkey would be the largest cage that you can afford money and space wise. A regular parrot cage is not suitable. A cheaper route to go is to build one yourself. You can have a big outdoor cage so that your monkey can enjoy the sun and fresh air. In the cage you should have plenty of enrichment. Enrichment includes foliage, hammocks, ropes, tunnels, bath pan, and toys. You can make your own enrichment like taking a cardboard box and cutting a few holes in it large enough for your monkey to fit his hand in. Fill the box with treats and hang in in the cage. There are many foraging toys that you can make with stuff you can find in your owl home.
You will have to highly supervise your monkey when he is out of his cage. Remember, they have an opposable thumb like us and can manipulate objects. They will figure out how to open the cage door, cabinets, fridge, etc. You have to treat them like a 2 year old that gets into everything. Have a room that is monkey proof for you and him to enjoy time together. You can have a swing hang from the ceiling, ropes from wall to wall, and other toys throughout the room.
Monkeys do enjoy a variety in their diet as they are omnivorous creatures. You can feed him crickets, grasshoppers, and meal worms along with fresh fruits and vegetables. Some people food can be fed also. Before feeding anything, make sure it is not toxic to your monkey.
