Question new cage design

Hey all, would like your input on a new cage that i am thinking about building.

I have recently moved to my dads place and am fairly limited for space.

Its going to bring my exsisting cage to just over half the horizontal space that it has now. The exsisting cage is 6.5' across the front, 3' deep, and 6' high.

now because of my limited space ive been thinking about building a corner cage. It will come out from the corner about 3.5' and be 6.5' across the front.
To make up for the loss in horizontal space I am going to build it 7.5 feet tall. A foot of which will be used as a drainage system on the bottom. So living space will be 6.5 feet tall. And three feet across the front as it will have a divider down the middle. So obviously the cages will be of a triangle desing instead of square.

what does everyone think?


peace

I think you've got a good plan. The taller the better - and that's a pretty tall cage! What species are you housing?

Keep an eye on those chams. That's a pretty big cage - but they may still need to be housed separately.

Hurry with the pics! lol

oh yea i geusse i forgot the metion that i will have a divider down the middle. my bad.
the cage will hopefully be started and finished in two weeks. Im only at my dads till i can get myself to together money wise and get my own place. so it will have to be able to come apart. Im going to build in sections and then put it all together with nuts and bolts, instead of screws. I will be using 2x2 and painting it with an exterior waterbased latex paint.

It should turn out great i will post pics asap.

peace
