Haha, well I JUST made a entirely new cage for them late last week right? Well, like the next day I started thinking of ways to make it bigger lol. Fortunately I can't expand it anymore than I have now (2x4, 2 floors) because my room and house are so stinkin small, otherwise I probably would have :cool:
I am thinking I'm not alone though, especially on this site, theres gotta be tons of cage building addicts!

I am now occupying myself with coroplast cabins and custom made hayracks lol.

I'm an addict too! I've remodeled my cage more than 10 times in the first year I had them. I've gone from 2x4 to 2x4 with loft to 2x6 to 4x6 with 2x6 loft to 2x6 stacked to 2x6 with 2 lofts to 2x7 to 2x8 l-shape now back to 2x7. lol
I've changed my cage so often I don't even have pictures of some of the revisions.

I think this happens to the best of us! I have changed my cage three times. It is as big as it can go pretty much right now so I will leave it be. It's a 4 by 5 with a 2 by 2 loft.

I also think about changing my cage, I have a 2x4 plus a 2x1 loft but it's the largest I can do right now, my place is so small.
I can't wait to move and I plan to decide on my next appartment or house depending on cage space XD

We've haven't even had the pigs a month and I've already changed the cage 2x. With the 6 extra grids I'm trying to figure out how to do it again. lol I, too, wish we had more room.

How big is your place? Can you move the furniture around? I have a small apartment too. 700sq.ft One bedroom apartment for 4 hoomans and 3 piggers.
Here's how I rearranged my place.

That'd totally be me if I had the space. But i dont think even I have 40 square feet of space in my room haaha
At that point 'd let them go wherever they want lol.

No Lissie.. all my furniture is touching each other, place is very very small :(
I will just expand a second floor until I move in July. the 2x4 actually takes up all the room left in living room.

I've expanded so much in the last 6 months - and I never take pics of it because within a week or so it's just not perfect.

Started out with a 3x5 w/ a 1x5 loft. (Three sows housed at first, then four)
Then went to a 3x5 w/ a 1x3 loft, and the cage went up on my old bedframe.
And then we downsized to a 2x5.
Then to a stacked 2x5 with a third 1x2 level.
Took away the stacked 2x5, and just had the 1x2 level.
The cage went off of the bedframe, and became a 3x4 (and this point it became three grids high because I adopted a rabbit - two grids high for the bunny with a 1x3 loft, and then a 3x4 for the pigs)
Then the pigs got two 1x3 lofts connected by a bridge, and I adopted another rabbit so I put up another 1x3 loft.
Then the lofts for the pigs came down, and it was just nothing.
And FINALLY after I adopted a fifth pig I made a 2x4 upstairs, but it's not stacked because there is a grid in the middle of it so it's still open in the bottom...hard to understand. So two pigs will live upstairs in the 2x4 and 3 in the 3x4.

I have a feeling I forgot one or two cage changes...
