Step 2: The Base

The easiest way to build this is from the bottom up.
To start, attach feet to the 1/2 plywood that will be the floor by drilling down through the floor and ensuring the screws were flush with the plywood.

Flip it over and screw up through the floor to attach 18" high 1/2"x1-1/2" pieces to each corner.
<p>Would I be able to house two dwarf rabbits in this type of cage? I was looking at rescuing a bonded pair and didn't want to buy a cage, so instead I chose to DIY.</p>
<p>Would this be suitable for 2 ferrets do you think? - Or I had an idea of converting my corner wardrobe into a cage for them.</p>
<p>can i adjust this for a chinchilla?!?!?! </p>
<p>I've never kept a chinchilla, but there's probably not enough jumping opportunities to keep a chinchilla happy. You could try altering it with half-width levels that are staggered so there would be room to hop from one to another, and make it taller.</p>
<p>Would you think this would work for a newborn chick? and to keep a chicken in? I have a small space and cannot have a dog, but can have a chicken, i dont get why either honestly, but regardless, do you think i should adjust a roof? I'm keeping in inside anyways, but any thoughts you have as the original creator is a great thing for me to hear! :)</p>
<p>I've never kept chickens, so I don't know. They could fall off the ramp the way mine is set up, but it would keep them inside the cage.</p>
<p>Super cool! I have bunnies, but I keep them outside. I wonder if I could make one of these for indoor visits... My dad especially would love being able to have a bunny inside for more than an hour.</p>
I love my rabbit to pieces, but not allowed to keep it inside! Maybe building an indoor hutch will allow me...
kewl ible,in the bunny world the word is HUTCH
It looks really good!!! you did a really god job. But just about how much did it cost to make this? i
I spent a bit less than $100 for all the materials, however, that also included about 3/4 of a sheet of plywood that will be used for another project, quite a bit of leftover smaller wood and trim that I ended up not needing, and two boxes of screw sizes that I didn't own before. <br> <br>If you have leftovers from previous projects, it would obviously cost a lot less. <br> <br>That's half the price of a similarly sized cage at my local pet stores, and way better looking, even without paint.
Cage is a bad word in the bunny world. Apartment, I think would be better. Good job. Nothing says your bunny's home should be ugly.
nice work, looks like a nice home for Oreo.
That looks great! :)
