*sigh* After 2 hours on the computer, I barely managed to make a model of what I was looking for. Anyways, I am going to post some pictures of what it will looks like, its going to be 3 levels and its going to be awesome! It will be home for 2 pigs until April where it will be home for 3 sows. I was debating whether or not to have that bottom section. Its up to mom. Ok, the computer refuses to work so I will add the pics later tonight.

Love it. But looks like the bottom level will be very hard to clean.

I didn't get the sizes right but in the actual stand, I can sit under it almost fine.

That looks amazing! Maybe you could make the bottom area play area, the middle eating, and the top sleeping!

Are you talking about the 4x8 feet sheets? If so, lookup piedmont plastics I believe it's called. In NM were I live they have a 7 colors & there only $13 a sheet!

I love it ! :D You should definitely make the little top area (1x2 I think) a sleeping area :D I did that, and I used another grid half way up to make bunk beds. Mine are in love. I sewed little pads and pillows for it and they never leave.

If I counted correctly, you only get 19 in that one for $19.99, the one I posted has 23 grids for $17.99. Also, the ones from there you have to ship, there never in store. For the coroplast. Here is the link: Piedmont Plastics (http://piedmontplastics.com/products/foamboard-/coroplast«.aspx) When you email them, make sure you say you are buying it for a Guinea Pig cage.

It seems as though the coroplast from Piedmont Plastics would be too expensive. The representative my mom spoke with even said that it wouldn't be worth it to buy from themů back to the drawing board I guess. :P

I will. I guess mom gets it from Home Depot. Mom is surfing the Internet for more coroplast selling places.

So you have Sabic Polymershapes near you? They usually charge around $10 - $20 for a 4x8 ft sheet.
