Below is a picture of my cage The red thing is where I store their hay, and I have two foodbowls there with 2 bottles as well.

Then they have two huts that they sleep in and there is also a couch type thing too haha.

I put velcro on the bottom of the fleece so they don't mess it up and go under it. But that means I can't wash it often.. because if I were to wash it the velcro would not be able to work after getting wet...

Anyways I am looking for more things to add to the cage if you have ideas of me moving things around idk! I also would like to add a second level for them but have no idea how! I have about 20 extra grids I can use!

Please take the bricks out the one that is sitting on their hay bin looks like it could fall and crush them at any time. You can drill little holes in the hay bin and attach it to the grid with zip ties so they don't drag it around.
 
It's not so they don't drag it around, if the brick wasn't there and they tried going inside the bin to get hay it would flip over and the bin would end up being on top of them.
I have had that set up for a while now and it has never fallen and don't worry that isn't how it is anymore I have two of those bins next to eacother with a tiny space in between them thats where the brick goes to hold them in place and in no way can harm them now. :)
 
Add a second level! :) maybe bend some grids and make tunnels?
 
If you have some extra fleece you could make a fleece forest. I found some great instructions on here and made one earlier today, I know my pigs love it!
 
@Mr. Pig Why would your velcro not work after getting wet? I wash things with Velcro all the time and it doesn't hurt it. I would also recommend a fleece forest. All 6 of my pigs love them. and you could easily put a 1 x 2 loft (or bigger even) over where the green pigloo is or else over where the red hay bin is.

I will put it over the hay bin :) that will be the new kitchen but the question is how do they transport themeselves up there?

do you mind linking me to the instructions?
 
Building an upper level is a wonderful idea and you have plenty of grids for it.... I would consider building it with zip ties though because the plastic connectors pop of really easy :) it seems like everytime i cleaned the cage i would have to rebuild it... its was even worse to fix because my cage has two levels both being 2x4 :) Happy building
