Here's one of my cages--my rabbits live on the bottom (Rosie is in there) and pigs on the top. It's got a divider in it right now since Dagmar had surgery.

But where do your cabbits live? You're buying them from HollyT, right? ;-)

I was always afraid to do a cage stand of cubes more than 1 high. Is it pretty stable?

I dug one sheet of coro out for my giant cage, still need 2 more sheets for the big cage and 1 sheet for the boys cage. No time today, hopefully I can drag Ray with me to go buy some tomorrow.

Erin, it's very stable if you zip tie the heck out of it. I gave some grids to a friend, and they made a beautiful 4x2 with loft on a 2-grid high stand. They used no connectors at all - just zip ties - and it's very, very stable.

I think the key to stability of the quality and number of zip ties you use :-p

Is using JUST the connectors not acceptable? Just wondering because I have a 2x3 {soon to be bigger!} for my two girls. It's completely put together with just connectors.

Depends on your cage, Michelle. Does it have levels or a loft? Is it flat on something, or do you have grids holding the cage grids up?

It's on the floor, No loft yet. Just a 2x3 with soon to be an L shaped loft.

Have fun Erin, but don't overwork yourself too.

I get man help here tonight :) I need to drag him to get the coroplast, then I'll let him loose scoring the stuff tomorrow and fighting with it to fit inside the grids. We'll teach him pig cage building 101, crash course!

Thanks! Yes, it's very sturdy. I don't have the whole thing ziptied yet (I ran out of black ties and didn't want to use white) but I use wood pellet bedding w/ shavings which are pretty heavy, and it stands up to that. And stands up to my daughter scooping it clean!
