I want to build a c&c with a base, but I’m having trouble figuring out how to place the connectors - particularly the ones in the middle (see the areas circled). There needs to be a vertical grid along the front to the left and right of the connector circled red. So how should I place it? And same goes for the one circled blue. I’ll have to postpone it till tomorrow when I have time, or end next week.

TIA and hope my questions make sense!

Tagging in @Eileen's Mum as I know she has bee doing some amendments to her c&c cage recently. We don't have a second floor so sadly can't advise....

Not sure if this helps. This is how I supported my upper level initially.
But now I use wooden timber rods which fit perfectly through the corner square to support the upper level.

For my upper level I used lengths of wood but I still used connectors on the grids. I think VickA has put up a excellent example, any more questions, we're here. Good Luck.

I also use a C&C stand for my cage, and how you have done it so far is correct.
The connectors around the edges of the cage need to be upright (like the ones pictured in VickiA's post), and the connectors in the middle need to lay flat (just like you have positioned them).
To increase stability with the middle grids (which sat on top of the flat connectors) I used cable ties.
It is a bit confusing and seems odd, but once you get all the grids on top and the correx in it really does work!
