Need help on cage

I am in need of finding a suitable cage.

Something like this:
http://www.scarlettsparrotessentials..._parrot_double

The only problem is the width can not be more than 92cm as it will not fit in the space I have.

Basically I have been asked to take on a Cockatoo, I do not yet know if I can persuade the family (mainly my dad lol) to let me take him on as I am not meant to have more parrots whilst living at home, but from what I have heard this poor boy really needs a new home

Cage wise it needs to be a double, ideally stacked so both cages are equal sizes, it has to be suitable for my Orange Winged Amazon and a Galah Cockatoo.

I also like this one:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2012-Twin-...item2ec1132efb
I just can't tell if those measurements are with seed catcher or not.

The Galahs side of the cage does not need to be huge, this is an older bird who has arthritis and can not perch well apparently, but as he is tame with everyone the plan is that everyone in the family can get him out when they are around so he will be out more than Rocky who can only come out where I am there currently due to him only bonding to me.

I do live in the UK so please only UK sites, I am looking for a cage that is a maximum of 92cm wide, 76cm deep and around 190cm in height, height isn't as important but as I plan to have Rocky on the top I don't want him that high he gets dominant over us, width and depth can not be any bigger or it won't fit.

If anyone can help me out here please please do, the sooner I can get a provisional cage sorted the more chance I have of persuading my family to let me get this bird home, he is really not in a good place right now.

I'm pretty useless on my phone, but check on the Rob Harvey site. They have some good cages on there and quite a few different stackers. So it's a galah? Cute! I hope they say yes

I had a browse on there, their double is too big and the triple would be too small really considering the space Rocky has now.

Bit of a nightmare lol. Looking into the cost of having one made specifically.

I haven't been given a 'no' yet so fingers crossed, still waiting to hear on whether they are giving the cage away with him or not. I do have the cage Rocky came in which I am currently doing up as it is rusty, scrubbing that off then giong to get it powder coated but it's slow going lol.

Failing that I have a couple of spare cages that would be 'ok' for a couple of days but not long term.

Yes it's a Galah They've had him 13+ years apparently and he was an adult when they got him. His diet is sunflower seeds and a tiny bit of fruit
Got so many ideas in place on how I can take him on myself and where he can be kept, he deserves to live the rest of his life out being spoiled rotten.
