Someone asked me to design this a long time ago and I never got around to it til now. It was pretty intimidating!
It's only a "Beta" right now because I don't have the materials to build it myself and test it out, soooo....I was hoping that a brave soul(or 2 or 3...) might be willing to give it a shot?
I quadruple-checked the measurements, so it SHOULD be good to go.
The building instructions are pretty much the same as for a basic PVC cage( http://justforfuzzies.com/Other_Stuff/Cage/index.html
), just more pieces to cut and more stuff to buy, lol.
Anyways, here are the blueprints: http://justforfuzzies.com//Other_Stuff/Cage/Double_Cage/Instructions.JPG
Also, here's a list of what all you'll need:
*21- 10' PVC pipes
*52- 90-degree Elbow Connectors
*44- T Connectors
*4- Cross Connectors
*2- 15' Rolls of Hardware Net(plastic mesh)
*64- 1 1/2" x 1/4" bolts(stainless steel)
*64- 1/4" washers(stainless steel)
*64- 1/4" nuts(stainless steel)
*8- 1" x 1/4" bolts(stainless steel)
*8- 1/4" nuts(stainless steel)
*2 handles(for the pull-out trays)
*1000 small zip-ties
*200 large zip-ties
*4 hook & eye latches
***pics off all of the supplies are on my site, in the tutorial link above.***
For the pull-out trays, you'll need to add something solid(hubby suggested a piece of linoleum) in the bottoms of them to keep the food/poo/pee, etc... from falling through from the top cage into the bottom one.
I had to do a bit of guess-work on the piping and mesh needed, so you might need a little more/less.
I hope someone is brave enough to give it a shot because I've got high hopes for it and am hoping to make some for myself as well. They'll be perfect for joeys waiting to go to their new homes!
