So I'm wanting to build a run for our two guinea pigs, Neville and CJ but I'm a bit stuck on designs, materials, collapsibility... well, everything really.
The best idea we have currently is to make a frame out of rectangles made of 2x1 wood which are hinged so they fold flat then put chicken wire across the rectangles. Not very exciting though and would be very long when folded up so could still be a hassle to store.
I need it to be secure, light, foldable and it would be a bonus for it to be generally usable indoors in order to expand their area sometimes and keep them in it when we're cleaning out the cage.
Any thoughts?

Would this be any use? 62 quid but it looks pretty good...

Ooh yeah that's the sort of thing we were thinking of. At 20 Kg though it's a bit on the heavy side and no so usable indoors. I recon we could take that design, get some lighter wood and chicken wire from B&Q and make it for 20

How about attaching them to elastic and tying the other end to their little wooden bedroom? That way they can roam as far as they like, and they'll always return home eventually
