Hello I'm trying to make a bigger c&c cage for my piggies. they're currently in a 4x2. I would like make them a 6x3 so it be wider as well as longer, but I'm need help with the dimensions for the coroplast. I'm also wanting to add a stand and wanted to know how many grids I'd need sorry for all the questions im new to guinea pigs and want to give them a good life .Thank you

A 6x3 needs two sheets (or pre-cut bases) of Coro tapped together. You can't get a cage that big from one sheet. You also can't reach across a cage that wide to clean it or to get your pigs out. You pretty much have to step inside a dirty cage on the floor to clean it.

Are you sure that's what you want? It's a very difficult cage to manage over time. Much better to go longer with more creative enhancements than width.

I would look here for inspiration for big cages with lofts and extensions and stands that are manageable for cleaning and such: https://www.guineapigcagesstore.com/cagetopia-creations
