Thank you for your comments!

I don't really know what the total cost of the cage is but I am guessing that it was quite high - I bought already painted wood borders, PVC-plastic and a lot of tools and screws!

The size of the cage is 160x90 cm. The PVC-plastic are screwed to the inside of the wood borders so that the pigs can't get to them. The bottom and back of the cage is lined with wax table cloth and the edges between the cloth and plastic are sealed with silicone.

The girls have now moved in. They started of hiding in the fleece...

Regiane: Sure, you can use the pictures. Have you seen my boys cage? It is a bed that I made into a cage.

Kristina, I share your ideas (the coffe table cage, the bed cage and your last cage) in the Portuguese forum, in this thread.
Your ideas are inspiring, thanks!

We are down to just 2 pigs, Calvin and Emmet. Due to space and safety issues, they are in a slighting narrower 2x4. I have them on what was my TV stand. The stand was to long for where I needed to put it in the new place. So now it hold the pig cage. I had to put grids on the bottom too because the cage hangs over about 3 inches in back and front. Instead of being a total of 18 squares across, it is 16. They are very happy with it. While we stayed with my sister, they lived in a store cage so this is heaven to them.

I have a small kitchen area with shavings, and the rest is fleece. We sweep the poops daily and spot clean the kitchen as needed. Since I added the kitchen area, they don't make that big of a mess in the rest of the cage.

I will take pictures later. Cage is due for a full cleaning. Courtney and I spent the first half of today at Guineadaddy's place cleaning his 20 cages so I am pooped.

If there is anyone in Canada (not sure if the US has this store) looking for C&C cage supplies, Rona has them.

I went there today and I bought a pack of 23 grids for around $30. I also bought a giant sheet of coroplast, they have a lot of different colors, and I figure I will have more than enough.

I went back to an L shape from a U shape. Same # of pigs, just better utilization of space.

slavetofuzzy, You are truly an amazing person. Next time I clean my cages and get tired, I am gonna think of you and smile. Great job on the cages, and the rescue, and I really do mean that. I know that all of that work can't be an easy task.

Wow, STF, that is a true piggy mansion! I love the stack of cozies and what nots on the shelf. :)

Amazing work!

I just put together my first C&C cage! I absolutely love it.
Nemo seems to like having the extra space too, he's just popcornin' around. He has gotten under the fleece around 3 times already, but I've pinned the sides up with binder clips so hopefully he won't get under anymore. I got all my ideas for the cage setup from here, so thanks everyone!

Ooh, pictures please Nemo?

ETA: I just realised that I've built my first C&C recently (before that they were in improvised cages made out of wire shelving) and haven't posted pictures. How naughty of me!

STF, how do you like having just coro in front? Does it seem dangerous?
I LOVE your cages, and I'd love to have a big set-up like that someday. (Or would I...? Makes me tired just looking at it!)

STF: how often do you clean the cages? It must be never ending.

One day I plan to have 4 different cages. One huge one for my girls and 3 2x4 for guinea pigs that are foster or start a small adoption only housing 3 pairs at a time. My plan is to win the lottery, build my dream home. Off the kitchen will be the pig room. In this room I will have the cages mentioned above, as well as a fridge for veggies and meds, and a washer and dry just for piggy bedding. I have it all mapped out, now I just need those millions ;-)

eschimpf, I wish to have that dream home some day too! I will have a free range room for the pigs.
