    I have a video tour of the cage here, or else pics are on page 90 of this thread right in the middle

    the Midwest side panels are the same height (14 inches) as c&c grids, so I used them on the long side of the cage instead of grids. In fact I used them instead of grids for most of the old cage I had. I put the Coro on top of plywood on top of bookshelves, but a c&c cage doesn't need to be on a stand.
    If you don't put it on the stand you don't really need anything but Coro underneath

    Yes, you can do that, or as Saylavi said you can use the panels with grids.

    Coroplast (corrugated plastic) is used for the base of the cage. Its waterproof, and can be cut and snapped into place easily, so its a preferred cage base. Many people also use it to make diy hay racks among other things. Its basically the same material they use to make political and voting signs that you put out on the lawn. You can find it at home depot, probably Lowes, Menards, or any other home reconstruction store. There are also sign stores that have it. If you go this route, make sure to make the walls pretty high, so the pigs dont fling poop or spray pee out of the cage. My walls are about 8 in. high, with the kitchen wall being about 12 in. to keep hay in.

    Not sure if you can see these, but this is my current piggy cage! This holds my two adult girls, Cookie and S'mores. They started out in playpens and upgraded to this, and soon they will be upgraded to a 2x6 instead of a 2x3.5 (i'm just eagerly awaiting my etsy purchase of two liners and my cage to ship and arrive) yay tax returns hahaha

    Jumbo Deluxe--oooooh! So pretty!!! It would be so tempting to get more piggies & a huge cage--if I had room. They are so appreciative when we make things better for them.

    You inspired me. I'm seriously considering using the 2x4 base I bought for my first cage and making a basement like the link I showed you.

    Until you can buy or make your own C&C I might consider removing the divider so they at least have the full use of the Midwest for running laps. I had two boars in a Midwest for a while and they did ok without the divider. I actually used the divider and I had panels that were supposed to be a lid and used it to make the cage bigger at one point.

    However, when I finally upgraded to a C&C (first I just did 2x4 then 2x5), I was amazed at how much bigger it actually is and how much more active they became!

    I added some windows and trim to my cage. I love watching my girls through the new windows.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I made a simple fleece corner curtain for the cage in post #1810 /page 91. I tried the tie-dye green fleece from Joann's & this solid green from Walmart fabrics as liners over wood pellets, but didn't like them nearly as much as the leopard print, so the green can be for experimenting with accessories. Went back to Walmart where I got the leopard fleeces, just the right size for our 2x4, & got a few more. This fleece curtain is tied onto a bird-cage dowel. Dink & Doink love it. I don't think it needs a top because they have 4 covered hidey places. This is Doink! Click image for larger version.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    We moved our girls from my oldest son's room to the living room because they were being neglected. We had to go a little smaller, but I think the increased interaction and floor time is more than worth it! Peppermint (white pig) is Cocoa's (darkest pig) daughter. They were rescued in 2014. We added Maple (tri-color) when she ended up in the local shelter at only 5 months old about a year ago.
    They are in a 5x2, divided into a 3 2/3 grid fleece over uhaul pad run and a 1 1/3 wood pellet café area with a hay rack and two water bottles.
    (Btw, I had another profile but couldn't reset or recover password.)

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Just finished building my very first C&C cage. Took me about a week to get the materials and build but I'm pretty happy with it! The top is where my skinny pig Harry will live. The bottom is for a bunny when we get one. It wasnt a cheap project for me in Canada that's for sure!
    Couldn't find the grids anywhere, found a six pack of cubes at Canadian Tire and bought three boxes. Couldn't find anywhere to cut coroplast for me until finally I found a sign store who would do it. Home depot had giant sheets but wouldn't cut for me.

    Three boxes of grids - $150
    Two sheets of coroplast - $30
    200 pack of cable ties - $14

    =2x4 c&c cage at $194. Not too bad considering pet store cage prices!

    Not to mention I bought a fleece cage liner from piggy bedspreads. THAT was a whopping $155. For one liner! My own fault I'm an idiot and didn't pay attention to shipping cost or currency exchange.

    Oh well. Harry is one lucky piggy! I hope he likes it! Won't be able to put him in it until I get the liner and accessories. Let me know what you think!
