    Saloon:Square shaped box where the piggies can hide with an outside to look like a saloon
    Train station: Same as above
    Jail: Same as above but with a view outside through painted wooden bars
    Mine:A rectangular shaped hide hole with a wooden inside and a paper outside to look like rocky walls
    Hat:Unknown if it'll be in final project but is a hat in the middle with a hole in it

    Food bowl
    Im gonna make there food bowl in either 2 ways
    1.Have a train and train track with three carriages containing food( Train will not move)
    2. Same as above but with 1 big carriage

    Water bottles
    Either one or two water bottles on each side of the saloon

    Chews
    The cage will be littered with cacti chews

    I would be VERY leary on painting anything for piggies. They WILL chew on everything.

    That being said sounds amazing and beyond adorable. I just would be wired about them ingesting the paint.

    Don't paint unless you use non-toxic vegetable paint.

    Think about cleaning while you're designing. Everything you put in there has to be moved and cleaned. Food dishes need to be washable.

    Don't take up all the space with things to put in the cage. The pigs need flat, open room to run.

    You're going to need to be careful what you build this cage out of as well. Remember that wood will quickly become urine soaked, smelly and gross. Everything should be easily removable and cleanable.
