    Happy to see that you now have a 2x2 loft! I have found that a 1x any size just doesn't work.

    Why not consider making the loft an offset loft so that it is much easier to clean under the loft? If you make it really sturdy, you won't need any added support beneath the overhang. Here's a graphic depicting what I did. First is with a support, second is without. My loft has no added support under the overhang......not even the angled piece.

    Thank you so much, my sister who cleans the cage was worried about this. We may implement it soon
