    Question How many cubes do I need to get to make a 2x4? And how many yards of fleece covers it

    I am trying to make a C&C cage for the piggie I rescued Sunday. I found cubes in 4 and 6 packs. How many of each would I need to get to make a 2x4 cage and a loft?
    Also I am going to use fleece bedding with wood chips underneath. Our fabric store only sells in yards, so how many yards of fleece would I need to cover it?
    Thank you!

    I made my c&c cage a couple of months ago.

    Sides = 4+2+4+2 = 12
    Bottom = 4+4= 8
    Loft (size 1x2) = 2 bottom + 5 Sides = 7 (one space for an opening)

    Total = 27

    You can leave out the 8 grids for the base if you plan on only having coroplast on the bottom.
    You will need more if you make the base out of the grids a well. I used another 10 on the base for mine.

    Someone, please check my math, but I think that's it.

    Don't forget the cable ties. Buy the econ-size pack of 100. You's be surprised how fast you will go through them on this and future projects.
    And look for the large packs of grids to save some money.

    Good luck!

    , I just realized you mean a pack of 4 or 6 cudes. I'm talking about 27 grids.
    27 cubes would fit a lot of piggies!
