    Loft and Ramp DIY Question

    Does anyone know how to build a loft and ramp for a 2x4 C&C cage? My cage is covered so the ramp would need to enter the loft from the bottom. Anyone make an offset ramp? I think it might be easier to clean.

    The ramp to the upper story of my cage ran outside the cage and was made of PVC pipe. It worked very well until one of the pigs decided her favorite place in the whole word was right at the top of the ramp, which completely blocked it.

    You can find many, many pictures of ramps in the Photo Gallery.

    Do you have a picture of the ramp on the outside? I like that idea because then you don't lose space in the cage from the ramp.

    My apologies. I have been having difficulty accessing any of my previous threads here on the Forum. I'll see if I have the instructions on my computer and get back to you.
