Has anyone made this cage?

http://www.glidercentral.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/936813/How_To_Sugar_Glider_PVC_Cage

If so, can you tell me the assembled width? The thread is locked, so I can't ask there, but I need to make sure it fits through my doors before I make it!

I've never made any cage before, but let me see if I can help get estimated width and depth for you.

The builder/poster shows dimensions in cross picture, using measurements of 2-15" (shown in Blue) across, of course there is at base a cross bar (shown in Red) going the depth at 2- 12" lengths, so the dimensions would be more than 30"W x 24"D, including the lengths mentioned, cross pipe, and connectors.

The builder/poster also mentions in following post that they purchased a 36"x30" appliance tray that fit perfectly under the cage. So I would then figure the cage dimensions would be slightly smaller to fit inside this tray. In actuality, if you look at the photos of finished cage posted with the legs inside the tray, you will see some space depth wise. Hope this helps.

I am going to go out on a limb and guestimate it at about 38 wide and 28 to 30 deep that is figuring in the extra length that the elbows and T joints will ad.

You could turn it sideways and put it through the door that way or just cut the pipes that are supposed to be 15 inches long for the sides at 14 inches long to shave some off.
