I've been working on this cage for about 2 weeks now, which is the longest I have ever took to do it before. Been gathering the things I needed and doing it piece by piece. I added all sorts of new toys and extra space. They seem to like it too which is most important.

The whole cage, have space for storage yay ^ ^
New Cage! Finally Finished!! :D
The left side of the main level, bought a "Twigloo Hut" and they're too big for the opening so I improvised, cuddly basket instead. The red thing by the way, that is a small animal KONG! I put Oxbow Barley biscuits broken into pieces and so far they've not been able to puncture it and nose it until the biscuit falls out. They are both chewers...

Right side of the main level.

The loft. 2x2 equipped with Waffle Blocks house, hay box with wood pellets which I'm hoping they stop nibbling on soon, and my version of a fleece forest. I only draped the pieces around the edges so the middle is open to lay in.

I am hoping this cage lasts me a long time! It is plenty of room for Cinnamon and Calypso and much stronger and neater than their old 4x2. Just wanted to share with everyone, questions comments or concerns welcome! :)
 
I want that cage.
 
Wow! That cage is inspirational :) I really want to make a beautiful cage like this soon! Your piggies are super lucky <3
 
Thanks! It was their Christmas present, just a little behind schedule hehe. They have settled in and claimed their spots, I'm proud and excited it's done!

Just a tip, if anyone is building/rebuilding a cage, look for coroplast that has smaller flutes. This one is 2mm thick only and is VERY strong! I can step on it and it doesn't indent like the older coro I always used.
 
OMG! This cage is gorgeous!
 
Don't let my pigs see this thread! All they got for Christmas was some fruit and a bow, which was taken away once they started to eat it.


Awesome cage!
 
Really Nice job you did there, it's wonderful to give them more space isn't it!!

Thanks for mentioning also the smaller fluted coroplast - I will be on the look out for that now.

Like you I also made my hanging forest open in the middle. (Maximus von Lichtenwalder likes that idea very much. He seems to be a very private piglet on occasion.)
 
Your new cage looks wonderful!
 
That is amazing!!!! We're looking to relocate where our girls are and re-do their cage and add a loft once they're a tiny bit bigger and this is a fabulous idea. I LOVE the fleece forrest, very sensory stimulating, the soft hanging fleece and the hiding spot, wonderful wonderful!!!!!

I owe my design to all the very helpful threads and photos on this site. I've been collecting ideas here and there for months! It feels great to give them more space to explore and play. I will say, I've always had kitchen lofts, or hay lofts only in the past and they never lasted long. I love the loft, it's like their little penthouse suite :D
 
Very nice cage. You did a great job on the liner. I'm sure your pigs love it.
 
I LOVE it!!
 
Wow! Your piggies are spoiled!
 
Looks WONDERFUL bud ! You always do such a fantastic job ! :)
 
Wow! That looks amazing!
Where did you get the fleece, by the way? I fell in love with it at first sight ❤️! The owl on the fleece blew me away! Same with the rest of the cage!
 
Love the twigloo idea and the kong idea! Great job!
 
So awesome to see someone do a little research for their piggies, and build them a piggy mansion!

Very nicely done, bet they love it!
