Hello. I have built a wooden house. It is a single level house with a ramp leading to the roof on the oposite side of the door. The roof and ramp both have 1inch walls. I have covred it all in fleece and hopfeully you like it. I really hope the picture works so you can see. Id aprecicate everyones opinion on this because i want my piggy to enjoy it!

I have a few concerns. First, is it safe? Second, will he eat the tape? third, will he enjoy it?

Can't really say wither or not he'll eat the tape or if he'll enjoy it. It's a personal preference thing. Tho, if the tape is flat, he shouldn't bother with it too much.
Do you have an absorbent layer underneath the fleece? If he tinkles on it, the wood will become a bacteria haven and may even stink.
Does he have a cage mate? If so, I'd add another door(maybe under the ramp) to less the chance of someone getting trapped and bullied.

How tall is the house? 1 inch walls won't keep him from jumping off. If the house is taller than 6", it would be a dangerous fall. If he's young, 6" jump is fine. If he's older or senior, 6" is too high a fall.

The tape looks like it's not completely flat to the surface, so he may nibble on it. I'd advise looking for a way to attach things without using tape.
