Well I visited one place who said their coroplast was $80 for a 4x8 and I decided that is WAY too expensive, so that day I went to BBB and found 2 long storage containers that can slide under a bed. Well I cut the ends off both of them and slid them together making one long container. The dimensions are about 4.5 x 1.5 and right now I have 2 piggies. So, I found a place not too far away that sells coroplast and a 4x8 sheet for a about 25. Reasonable since the last one i found was over 3x that. SO! My question is, if I wanted to build a 2x4 with a 1x2 loft. what would be the dimensions for both sheets (top and bottom)? and what are your dimensions if you have that sort of cage set up?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!:cheerful:

Are you zip-tying or using connectors on your cage?

I'm using both. Since at the moment I needed to connect the half pieces.

I have a 2x4 with a 1x2 loft and, while I can't find my tape measure, I did recently measure, because I'm planning on changing to fleece... The bottom is 28"x56" (add 6" to a side for the size of the plastic, and that gives you... 40"x68") and the loft is 14"x28" (adding 6" to a side again gives you... 26"x40"). Hope that helps!
