Right, I am planning on buying a new corner house for my piggies.

I quite fancy this one:



It has the right dimensions I think and it is natural wood so it looks nice and they can chew on it as long as they like.

Now, there is a review on the page saying:

Looked great but it was too small for my guinea pig too fit into.
Now, I am not sure if she just ordered the wrong size? They have it in three different sizes, hamster, guinea and rabbit.
Could you have a look at it (dimensions are 32 x 21.5 x 13 cm for the guinea pig one) and tell me what you think?
I have fairly big piggies and dont want to do the same mistake...

I could just go for the rabbit one to be on the safe side, I suppose, but I think its a bit big for my cage setup.. might fit in, but Id rather go for the guinea pig one...

what are your opinions on this?

I would buy the rabbit one because when I have seen things in shops for piggies I think Misty would get stuck in that. If you can go for the rabbit one.

Agree here, the guinea pig sized wooden homes are only really big enough for young guineas and babies to play in. they are nice though and the guineas enjoy nibbling them :)

that type of house tends to collapse easily, just saying.....
do mean they can push them over easily? because I just cant see them "collapsing" as such, I mean if they are made out of nice tough wood...

I would expect things like that from plastic houses, you know how plastic steps sometimes start cracking in the middle where you put pressure on...? I could imagine a plastic piggy house at some point giving way in the middle. but wooden ones..?

more information please! :)

my wooden one fell to pieces but it wasn't a corner one, it was just made out of that type of wood.

I ordered a corner house for Fudge from zooplus, unfortunately they don't have the same one anymore but they have this one which is similar:

http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/rodents/accessories/cabins/36373

Mine measures 27 x 27 and 14 high and is spacious for one piggy and he loves sitting on top of it.

If it's for more than one pig I'd go for the larger one.

That looks sweet and it's nice to find another online pet store that I haven't browsed (and bought) in :)

WHOA ITS HUGE! :o

I'm going to take some pics now!

EDIT:



together it is the height of just over one Argos-Grid, which is why I added some more in that corner, dont want any piggies falling of our jumping out ;)

It comes delivered in two pices, the small house and the bottom house.
The bottom one has pieces of wood stuck to it so you can slot the small house in it, so nothing is wobbly and can fall off.



Thats how it looks from the inside:



However, the girls are still scared and dont know what to think of that monstrum, so they are hiding in the drainpipes ::)



Ill try and take some pics when they venture out.
