Right I have finished the cage, its 62''x26'', its for 2 piggies. Is it ok or have I filled it up too much. Any advice would be appreciated. The lookout shelf will be sandwiched in coroplast which I'll do tomorrow.

It's very cute. You might want to take a few things out (it's hard to resist saving things for next week!) so they have room to run. If you plan on letting them out for a lot of floor time and on a regular basis, you can keep more things in there. some people are able to let their guys out for entire evenings, so their cages are more for comfy lounging. I personally don't always have the time to give my pigs floor time, so I made their cage really big and keep in pretty lightly furnished. I rotate the arrangement of their furnishings every night, and switch everything (completely new toys and stuff) every week to keep the environment interesting. Hope this helps!

I would take a couple things out and then switch them out with other things during the week. It looks really great! :)

Right Ive taken a few bits out and have also added an upper level, (a piggie kitchen area). Ive also made a soft corner cushion to go on the corner shelf at the far end. The red futon is rased so they can go under that. I also made a big fleece pouch under the upper level.
