Is there a chrome wire shelving that can fit a 2x% C&C cage?
I don't know about this specifically, but many hardware and home improvement stores will trim the standard lengths of shelving for you if you need a different length.

I just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to everyone who shares important piggy information. I am new to owning guinea pigs, and these forums have been extremely helpful to me. I am also new to computers, so forgive me if I mess this up! Here are my boys and their new cage.

Nice cage BPpigs.

I also would like to thank whoever had the idea of putting the Post Office mailing envelopes between the grids and coro. IT WORKS! My floor behind the cage is so much cleaner! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

BGPigs - I love your cage it looks so clean and spacious. I also like the set up and how you have the little section going through to the other side up the top. Well designed!

Just a note here, if you are talking about Priority Mail post office mailing boxes, you can't use them (I am guessing you could even get a fine). You need to find a free source of cardboard instead.

Yep, I'm using the Priority Mail envelopes. God help the postal employee that comes in my house and tries to become difficult! I guarantee they'll leave with them in a very uncomfortable spot!

Remember the guy who built all the furniture in his apartment out of FedEx boxes?

Now, just have to replace overhead lighting and I'm set. Hopefully go buy a new set of bulbs today. It's also my good light for pictures, so maybe I'll take some new pics today when i get the bulbs :)

The shirt is no longer there, as I used some random bits of fleece to create a couple of "tents"

I love your cage Stomp, I would love to be able to build something like that for my piggies. When we move I am going to try to build something similar so I have storage under it.

You probably have said before, but how long did it take you to build?

Well the original 3 floors (the upper area is new) took me about an hour of puttin the grid together (its reinforced to make sure its sturdy).

The coro took about 30 minutes to cut with my dads help.

The upper floors took another hour (had to bend the grid and such, and that hurt mah knees!)

The coro for that was cut by me.

I fail at cuttin coro :P

But it works.

So overall about 3-4 hours total between coro cutting and actual construction.
