Cavy Cages - Bunk Bed Cage
Cavy Cages is a Guinea Pig Cages website providing information on proper guinea pig cages and sizes. Before you buy a cage, check out this website. The Cubes and Coroplast design is superior in many ways.

Upstairs-Cubes and Coroplast
The top portion, made with cubes and coroplast, which I will call the "upstairs! cage". When I say upper !deck, I am referring onl!y to a deck within the upstai!rs or the downstairs cage, i!t does not mean the top port!ion of the bunk bed.1!

Upstairs-Unfinished Upper Deck
In this pic you can see the unfinished upper deck behind my piggie. I put it halfway down the length of the cube grid because I have one visually impaired pig in this cage.

Temporary Grid Tent
This photo of Cheyenne shows the temporary tent I made for the pigs to get under until I can find them a good house. I used two cube grids connected at right angles with the grid connectors, and covered it with a rug. This would only be a temporary solution, because for the long term, I would not want my pigs eating the rug.
"nice cage"
"that is a cool tent idea!"
"is the tent coolmy pig is always re..."
"You take tent siriously...cool!"
"I Don't know What to Say! Wow!"
"Is that a tent?"
"marry me jade!!!"

Plexiglas Front Wall
Inside view of the temporary tent looking through the plexiglass front wall. The coroplast comes up three inches, then the plexiglass goes up 9 inches from there.

Ramp to Upper Deck
This is a good shot of the ramp wtih Silky and Charlotte sharing a piece of lettuce. I made the ramp from a piece of wood, covered it with coroplast to protect the wood from urine (better than "bareback"), and put a piece of red carpet for the pigs for traction. It is secured at the top with a wire underneath that holds it to the cube grid.
"do they really go up that ramp? I co..."
"allyour pigs right are there more if..."
"CCCCCCCCCCCCUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTT..."
"Did you make that upper raft or did ..."

Hay Rack - Empty
The pigs love this idea. I took a pic without hay inside so people can see it for what it is, or rather, was. It is a new unused shower caddy that I purchased at a thrift store for 1$. The red paper behind it was just for showing it better in the picture.
"That is a GREAT idea :0) hayracks r ..."
"Good idea!"
"cool! But does it matter how much ha..."
"This is my FAVORITE idea yet!! I HAT..."
"great idea"

Hay Rack - With Hay
I usually fill it much fuller than this to start, but we were at the bottom of the bag and I had to go buy more hay that day. Behind the hay rack and above the level of the coroplast, is a thin sheet of plexiglass or rather acrylic plastic to help keep the hay from spilling out.
"This is an AWESOME idea! And cheap ..."
"that is a really good idea with the ..."
"Nice idea."
"wow! its almost like a hay net!!! li..."

Attaching Coroplast to grids
I puched holes in the coroplast and used a zip tie to secure the hay rack so it would not wobble, or could not be knocked off if a pig tried to crawl under.
"That is helpful! My pigs would knock..."
"My cavy, armed with his trusty tin-s..."

Grid - Overlapped and Secured
I had to do some overlap to make my grid cage fit the space I was limited to. I used both duct tape in the color of my cube grids, AND zip ties to be extra secure. I put the tape and zip ties down the overlapping ends as well as the side that is pictured.
"Security is definately very importan..."
"u r a good owner!"

Cozy
I call it Silky's Sleeping bag... it is a homemade cavy cozy. Charlotte is as snug as a bug in a rug in there. I made it from an overstuffed quilted placemat looking thing that I purchased at a thrift store. Just secure by attaching velcro closures.

"how did you make that? It is soooooo..."

"That is a very good idea. A sleeping..."

New House
The "house" I eventually purchased. It was a storage container until I cut doors on both ends for the pigs to go in and out of.
"you can use plastic stools too they ..."
"That is cool! Even I could make that..."
"I am NOT creative, but even I could ..."
"My pigs would knock that over and ch..."
"Thats tubtastic!"

Pig House
Inside the new pig house of the upstairs cage. Charlotte in front and Silky in back. I cut the doors out with tin snips actually. And smoothed over rough edges with a hobby knife, like the kind used in model airplane building.

"Charlotte is yhe kind of cavie i wan..."
"ME TOO"
"Adorable piggies!!!!!"
"Cuite"
