This isn't very helpful for the tube thing, but every now and then I'll find a hamster cage at Good Will for pretty cheap. :)

I bought a pack of water bottles and just collected the empty ones as I used them. I cut off the ends with a box cutter and connected them with electrical tape, then I used a tupperware container as a sort of nesting area outside the cage. I have two Russian Dwarves and even with both of them in the tubes they hold up fine...

Shesh man, she was just trying to help. Other people are googling this up as well and are also interested in the subject. As for me, I used plastic bottles and hot glue, and also made connectors from plastic rings I got from cutting up other bottles. I used a soldering iron to punch three pairs of holes a third of the way around the ends of the tubes and the connectors. Then I used zip ties. Don't forget plenty of air holes and drainage.

Best,

Well, my mouse loves her toilet paper rolls! You can use the ones from paper towels too. Those might work if you don't need it see-through.

PVC is super cheap. I got some 1 inch (perfect size for a dwarf) for about $2 for 8 feet and a pack of elbow joints (no glue needed) for a couple more bucks at home depot. How much cheaper can you get?
