If anyone will understand my excitement, it will be you guys :)) After nearly a five month wait from ordering, my custom designed ‘Guinea Piggery’ has arrived!
It’s 20 foot long, has opening windows, stable door, a secure run with pet acess to the inside. Inside is a low level loft area which will be a ‘chill out zone’.
I am so excited :yahoo:
Here are a few photos, it’s passed quality control from my dog, who confirms the pet doors and ramp are safe to use!

Still a lot to do, today is Lino and storage shelving, tomorrow is heating and lighting.

The guys assembling it wondered just how many piggies I had for such a large structure and were shocked when I said 4.
Clearly it won’t stay that was for long :love:

Wow just wow what a wonderful Guinea Piggery! Your dog seems to approve! Lets hope your lucky piggies do to!
I have just put my lot in the run on the patio as they have now mown the lawn after a fortnight of pigging themselves on grass. They ask when can they move in?

They would be very welcome, there is certainly the space! They may have to share with my son who thinks it’s quite cool and he could sleep in there!

I echo others...wow!
That's flipping awesome. I've just shown my hubby and said, and you reckon I'm crazy about my piggies living a great life...look at this! Puts me to shame.

That’s the best thing I’ve ever seen! I wonder how many piggy’s you could house in there (comfortably) maybe 10? Is the outside area section going to sit on grass?
Looking forward to seeing pics of them in there living it up :clap:

Thanks, I think maybe 10 but I promise to try hard and not do that straight away ;) the idea was to have room to add a piggie it two if I wanted.
We have foxes in our garden, so for security it needs to sit on concrete as I don’t won’t any foxes digging their way in! But I’ve grown grass in trays to put in there and also I have a separate run on the grass which they go in during the day when I’m at home to watch.
