    This is our new and improved cage! There is a ramp on the outside of the cage that leads to the upper level. On the left hand part of the L shape is a 22 potty/kitchen area with multiple hay racks and water bottles. It is home to our five happy female guinea pigs!

    So, finally got my cage done and my 3 baby girls just arrived. I still have some cozys I'm going to make, and waiting on their better bowls, but this'll do for now. It's a 2x8 on the bottom and 2x4 on the top (24x96 inches and 24x48 inches). Click image for larger version.

    Here is the new and improved frankencage. We kept their original home as they where very attached to it. THe still spend most of their time in the hidey in that section of the cage. Although when then need alone time they separate into the new section.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Finally finished my guinea pigs "house" but they appear scared of the stairs... They are able to use it because if I put them in the middle they will go up, bit they refuse to do so on their own!

    First time having guinea pigs... I hope I'm doing things right.

    Not an optimal cage size for two very spoiled piggys, but good enough for a road trip

    Taped a carpet to a wooden base, attached casters and put the cage on top of it. The cage is attached to the base with four screws, one through the middle of each corner connector.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Decided to make my own cage.
    Old changing table turned into a 3 level Guinea condo. Girls love it. They were doing zoomies up and down and all around the levels. I change it up each time I clean. Change the hide outside and toys so they have something new all the time. Lots of chattering and happy noises from them for sure!!! My husband thinks I'm nuts but oh well. They also have a large playpen to play in as well

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Thought I'd show off photos of the PigPen, mark 3! It's all ready for piggies! Just got a little more saving up to do; I'm hoping by the end of the holidays I'll be ready!

    So at first I was going to just do a classic C&C style with grid connectors and zipties sitting on top of a sheet of plywood set up on 2 IKEA lack tables. But then my Dad had the brilliant idea to use these little corner braces around the outer edge of the plywood base to hold the grids along the outer edge of the plywood without having to take up extra space for grid connectors, or have the grids in danger of falling off.

    So they're screwed underneath the plywood all along all four edges...

    And hold the grid flush with the edge.

    And the whole thing is set up on top of 2 IKEA lack tables and, at my Mom's back-saving suggestion, pulled out a foot or so from the wall so I can get behind it for easier cleaning access:

    Then, to cut the coroplast, I had to first mark out the edges of the plywood, then set the grid fencing on top and mark the inner edges of the grid. Here, the green line is the plywood border, the red line is the inner border of the grid fencing, and the yellow is the cut/score line:

    Then I cut and scored the coroplast, folded and taped it into a tray, and viola!

    But I really felt like it still needed some extra height to the grid fencing, and I'm kinda hoping to get youngsters anyway. So I cross-hatched some extra grids around the support grids:

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I'm going to be trying out fleece over a layer of wood pellets this time around, because I've heard so much good stuff about it. This was the only suitable brand I could find locally about 10 minutes from my house. It was just under $8 per 40-lbs bag, so maybe a little on the more expensive side, but I would have had to drive at least 50 miles to get them anywhere else, so in terms of time and gas money saved, totally worth it.

    I already had 3 large swaths of fleece I had previously purchased from JoAnn's. Each was about 4" too short to cover the full distance of the cage and wrap over the wall edge like I wanted. So, I took a couple of remnants and just sewed to the ends with a sewing machine to cover the last 4". And it's DONE!!!

    When I measured the inner dimensions of the cage, it's almost exactly 17 square feet. Such a fun project, and so excited for pigs!!
