Standard guinea-pig cage would probably work fine. (Habitrail?)

  A guinea pig cage is not suitable for rats and a Habitrail is way too small. The TV stand really isn't a good idea either. MOST rats chew through wood (though mine didn't bother) and the pee will get soaked up in the wood if you're not careful, which is what happened with my cage. :(

 All metal is the best bet. This can be done using cube storage units, shelf units and twisty ties, etc. Yay for Google.
