Took 2 days but its 99% finish will be adding legs and making a litter tray.

Make sure you go over it for holes that they can squeeze through.

Just a double precaution.

Love the size. Feather is correct. Be sure to double/triple check for any place your glider/s might be able to squeeze through.

If they can get their head in between the zipties outside the mesh, their bodies are going to squeeze right behind them to freedom shock You might be surprised at how much that mesh will stretch.

One suggestion might be to make the mesh longer and let it wrap around the outside of the PVC pipes and then put the zip ties around it completely. That would prevent there being any gaps between the mesh and the zip ties, if that makes sense.

Looks great!

The only other thing I see is maybe where you have made zip tie "loops" for toys, and bedding to hang from. The loops need to be either big enough for the gliders to pass though( which is a bonus toy), or small enough they can't pass through. I use cheap shower curtain hooks in my "RV" cage where pouches won't hang very well. Makes it easy to take them out too.

I agree with everything said already. Looks great, nice size, but I would check gaps between your zip ties, maybe add some so you have more and they're closer together, that should make it secure.

I also have another suggestion or tip, whichever you'd view it as. Those outdoors (picnic) table clothes (weather proof) you can get a Dollar General or WalMart fairly cheap and in lots of colors and patterns now, would make a great liner under your cage. You would have to fold it most likely, but they wipe clean very nicely, I used one under a large screened enclosure I once had.
