    They used theses coffee tables but they put them on a base that already had the plexi-glass..
    That is the only thing that I can think of.

    Looks like a good idea for turtles too. just wish they explained what the lower half is and the side pieces. build instructions would have been awesome.

    I’m not sure I could live with guinea pigs in my living room, it could be a lovely big space for my hobby- modern doll houses though!(=:

    Lucky guinea pigs! They have such a nice, big area and it looks really nice and stylish too. I am very impressed.

    awesome would like some more info on the bottom, how did you put it together and with what material, and are you using glass or Plexiglas, I can see you can slide the glass out on the top.
