This indoor/outdoor rabbit hutch takes advantage of the warmth of the garage in the fall and winter and the cool breezes in Spring and Summer. I cut out some panels on the outside of the garage as well as the plywood underneath so they could move freely between the sides. There is a large piece of asphalt shingling over the cages so they are protected from the elements.
Step 1: build the cage's under-structure on both sides of the garage wall
The five-bay cage was purchased used from a mink farmer. It would be easy to make a similar cage out of the raw materials, but I was glad that I didn't have to. The structure that holds up the cage was built like a deck with the joists spaced about a foot apart. I used reclaimed cedar wood from an old project so that it would hold up to the elements.
