"Hubby is wanting to build a wooden frame for our boys and we loved ur set up. If u don't mind me asking did u build the frame around C&C or did u use something different? Do u mind sharing? :)" - [MENTION=27650]pigsNblanket[/MENTION]s

My family built the cage then added the wire. The whole thing is wood except for the wire bit. We used linoleum to line the bottom for easy cleaning and to protect the wood. You can see more pictures here.

Since I just took some pics yesterday after a cage change I will add them here but my cage is not as impressive as some of the cages here. My girls seem to be very happy though so I think they like it.

I've been saying this for a while but I WILL be expanding that loft soon. It's kind of cramped up there when they're all munching but they get along really well so they make due :)

Each level is roughly 28"x96". I have no problems at all of reaching the backs of the cage but for the top level I do need to stand on a chair or stool to reach the back mostly because I'm short. lol

This was my cage when I first made it! It was originally a 5x6 split into thirds, but now it's actually 3 separate pieces. It was not easy to clean before, but it definetly is now!

Cage2 Cage4 Cage1 I've since taken the lofts out too, and they're much roomier.

[MENTION=26216]aeiou[/MENTION] Thank you! I do have to admit it was a two person effort! My hubby is really good at making the cage/ramp/hay bins. I just told him what I wanted and he built it. I did the fleece though! Lol!

I may just have to make a cage like that. I literally stared at that cage with my mouth hanging open!
And congrats on finding 7 girls that all get along!

[MENTION=26216]aeiou[/MENTION] LOL! That's funny! And thank you again! We got all of our girls as babies except one so that has really made all the intros easy. It helps that the one adult is very laid back and doesn't bother anyone. She is our easy go lucky girl!
