I´m glad you like it. The piggies definitley do;)

No, I didn´t build it myself. I planned it but I let someone else build it.

Simple cardboard boxes with holes cut into the sides work wonders, as do untreated wicker baskets. Put pillows and blankets in the bottom for piggy hidies and beds. They are safe to shred and chew, also.

Very nice. I love your rug! Reminds me of my childhood in the sixties!

Molly - I love the lights on your cage. I just ordered some tiny lights for our cages as well. It makes them look festive and special I think.

Lissie, I so loved your cages that I was inspired to set up something similar. I actually found a workbench kit on line which included the corner brackets and measured instructions. All you had to do was buy the wood and have it cut to the specs. It took my son all of 2 hours to put together with nothing but a drill. It holds 2 2x5 c&c cages. I love it and it really doesn't feel too big or intrusive. I'll post some pictures later.

So, thanks for the inspiration Lissie, though my inside decor doesn't come close to yours yet! I do think your hayrack/water bottle holder is amazing!

My husband and I recently moved to a move conveniently located apartment, which has a lot less closets and extra space than our old place. Long story short, I made the piggies a raised cage so that we could store all their stuff underneath. Here it is!

Lovely cage, goosey! I can not believe there is no hay on the carpet!

Haha, it's because they'd only been in there for about five minutes. ;)

3 level wood and grid cages.
Each level is 2'x4' (24" x 48") and are 8 sq ft per cage.

The top of the cage is 6' high.

It currently houses a neutered male and female pair and two lone males (one on top and one on the bottom)

Nice set up. How hard is it to clean?

Its really easy because the front drops down. Its only 2 feet wide so I can easily reach. The top I just stand on a chair. Being 5' 1" tall has only a minor disadvantage. ;)

Where did you guys all find these awesome cages? Also, I see many of you use fleeces, do you find that the pigs chew on it? I want to make an awesome piggy cage for my girls!

That's the girls (early) Christmas present. They're getting handmade beds and cosy sacks once I pick up the materials tomorrow, but they don't mind having nothing to open on Christmas day as they love their new cage.

What a great looking cage. I love the red coro. It's starting to sound like I have an obsession with this, but how do you get in to clean the bottom cage?

The 5 panels at the front come out, a 2 grid section at each side, then the middle grid. The top level sags when the middle grid is removed so I tend to clean round it using the openings at either side.

I found this topic!
I can't believe, I thought it was lost forever :)) !

I got 2 cages, each 170 cm x 60 cm (approx. 67 inches x 24 inches) = 1 sq metter (approx. 10.5 sq feet)
They are made of polycarbonate (or correx, coroplast, it has many names). In each cage live 2 male pigs.

First cage- "upstairs" - Chocco and Zorro

Second cage - "downstairs" - Corb and Quizi

* NOTE: These photos are old, I change the arrangement of the accesories weekly.

The pigs have their own room, and I want to change their cages, I still think they are so small...

Looks like a roomy cage! I would be a little worried about their jumping out though.
