On the main page, it says that the cubes used to build the cages are 14" each, right? Then why are all the cubes listed 14.5"? I've never seen these 14" squares, so could someone clarify for me before I start spending my money?

14.5 is just including the space between the grids that the connectors cause. They are the right size.

All the grids are 14" except those from K-Mart. Those are 15 inches.

Thanks you guys, that cleared that up well. As another quick question, would it be horrible of me to keep my pigs in a 2x3 cage, then expand to a 2x4, once I get my parent's approval? I just don't want them to come home after I'm done building it and to flip out. They already think I'm nuts for talking to my cat, nevermind devoting half my bedroom to guinea pigs!

Are they sows? THey can be ok in a 2x3. It's alot easier to just start out with a 2x4 than to expand.

I would start out with a 2x4. It's going to be harder to convince them to expand it rather than to keep it a 2x4.

I plan on adopting sows, yes. I have two in mind from Amiable Animals, but I fear they'll be adopted before I convince my Dad's g/f.

I'll just start with a 2x4 when the time comes then. I really want to do an L shaped one around the bottom of my bed, but I'll save that for when I feel like getting creative.
