Do you think a second level is a good idea? Or does tthe ramp take away too much space?

Depends how big the first level is. If you have a big 1st level then it shouldn't be a problem but if its just a 7.5 sq ft cage then I would reccommend building stairs, not a ramp. Look at some pictures of peoples ideas; Get creative with it.

How big a cage do you have now? If you already have minimal space, I wouldn't bother with the second level. When you add a ramp or stairs, it makes it much harder for your piggers to run around without bumping into things.

The only other question is how many piggers are going in that cage? In a 5X3, an L-shaped second level would be pretty cool with a ramp on the short side.

3 piggies, L shaped is a good idea!!

That's what I was looking at when I started designing the cage I'm building. I've since decided to not add the 2nd level right now. The L lets you still have lots of light in the first level though. Have fun building!
