the rabbit hutch is done.
well... mostly. (we still need to figure out the roof.)
we had a few building bumps along the way. but that's probably to be expected when you don't exactly know what you're doing!
see the locks in the above photo? they were supposed to be next to each other, but the wood at the top of the second door didn't match up. in fact, when we first put on the doors, they didn't match up. they were really crooked. and on the enclosed side, there was a huge gap in the wood, so we covered it up with another board on the outside.
all minor setbacks, with solutions, when we kept in mind that this rabbit hutch didn't have to be perfect.
we kept the inside paint free. the entire floor is 1/2" x 1" wire. and one side is enclosed.
most of the materials we used to build this hutch were items we already had in the garage. we also recylcled some things off a broken-down hutch my brother gave us.
the idea for the X door came from this chicken coop by Heather Bullard.
i'm thinking about adding some door handles. wouldn't they be a cute little detail?
now, we just need to get that rabbit!
(oh and some food, and a feeder, and some hay, and a water bottle, and...)
