Introduction: Super Great A-frame Rabbit Hutch!

This is the rabbit hutch design I use for all my rabbits. It's safe, sturdy, attractive, predator-proof, tornado-proof, and hurricane-proof. Well, I'm actually not sure how well it would stand up to a tornado or hurricane, but you get the point: it's sturdy.

It's also very versatile. You can move it around rather easily, given its lightweight structure. (I usually need someone to help me move it because it's bulky and awkward to carry. I've had a few smushed toes from carelessness when carrying this hutch. But it's still really great. Smushed toes and all.) I can also use this hutch for many different animals. I used it for a chick nursery once, and I'm sure it would be great for other small animals.

The A-frame structure allows for great strength. I have abused these hutches (when they were empty, of course) by dropping them, standing on them, jumping from peak to peak, and bopping them on the ground to dislodge bunny poop. There has been no decrease in strength, even though they're only held together by finishing nails. (I didn't really want to pre-drill for a bunch of screws, so I took the lazy way out.)

For those of you who worry about the wire floors, I check my rabbits' health very regularly, and I have seen no signs of sore hocks. What I have found is that rabbit rescue websites are often misinformed. For instance, rescues say that the percentage of cancer in non-spayed female rabbits is around 20%. If you check reputable non-rescue sources, you could see the rate drop below 5%. With the wire flooring issue, I believe that although wire DOES increase the chance of sore hocks, it is not the terrible evil that nost rescues believe it to be. And if I ever see the signs of sore hocks in my rabbits, I will cover their outside enclosures with hay, as well as the inside. The reason I leave the wire open is because I have heard from many breeders that rabbits like the cool breeze during the summer. And in the winter, it's nice for them to have an open place to go to the bathroom, so they don't sit in their frozen droppings.

Also, feel free to revise and make things up as you go. I designed this hutch and wrote the instructions before I actually made it, so I'm afraid they're a bit idealized. I know from experience that nothing comes out exactly how its supposed to in the pictures.

So anyways, here's the rabbit hutch in all its glory. I posted the instructions on Wikihow first (before I realized that anyone could edit Wikihow articles), so that's why the instructions are in the format of a bunch of pictures. Be sure to look at each and every one. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Please give me comments and suggestions. I have had some very good ones so far. Just read some of the featured comments to see people's great ideas! I posted this instructible so that everyone can build, revise, offer suggestions, and (God help me) fix my grammar. I am always open to constructive comments that may enrich this project. And I really love compost ideas!

Happy building! (Sorry for the "book" of an introduction.)

Step 1: Gather Materials!

These specs are for 1 hutch only. I find that the way to best save wood and materials is to make 3 hutches at once.

For one hutch, you will need 5 2" x 2" boards cut like in the diagram of the sixth photo.

For 3 hutches, you will need 13 2" x 2" boards cut like in the diagram of the fifth picture.

To save the maximum amount of plywood, you should follow the plywood cutting chart in the fourth photo. This shows the cutting diagrams for 1 hutch and 3 hutches. For one hutch, you will only need 1 4' x 8' plywood board. For 3 hutches, you will need two plywood boards of the same specifications.

You'll need 1 3' x 4' piece of hardware cloth and 2 2.5' x 2' pieces per hutch. 1 roll of 4' wire would be suitable, but it's expensive and hard to find. If you need, you can lace together two 2' x 3' pieces for the bottom with wire. Just make sure to cut any sharp ends. If you take this route, you can find 2' rolls of hardware cloth at most home improvement and hardware stores for a relatively low price.

If you have a pneumatic nailer, USE IT. It makes the project so much easier than if you just hammer. Also, you won't need wood glue if you have such a tool. You WILL need caulk, though, whether or not you have a pneumatic nailer.

Also, of course, if you were to build 3 hutches, you would need 6 latches and 12 hinges instead of 2 latches and 4 hinges.

Step 2: Frame Time

Pretty self-explanatory. It helps to have another person to hold the wood while you're nailing.

Also, if you have a pneumatic nailer, this is the time to use it. It really transforms a dull and frustrating project to a fun experience.

Step 3: Doors and Window Walls

This is where the trial and error comes into play. You'll likely need to shave those wood triangles down a bit for them to fit nicely.

The way I designed the doors ended up being much different from the way I actually built the doors. They don't fit nicely into the gap like I expected them to; I had to do some quick improvising and came up with a slightly uglier solution. The door sits slightly on top of the frame, and the latches are springs that hook up and over the edge.

Also, I found that wood glue is not necessary if you have a pneumatic nailer. However, if you live in a cold climate, you'll want to caulk the gaps. Theo's cage, as you can see from th e picture, doesn't have big gaps, but some of mine did and I used paintable caulk.

The hole shown here is much too large. Cut a hole about half this size. And it CAN be square.

Step 4: The Outer Shell

Just a tip: make sure to do it in the correct order. Problems will occur if you don't. I know from experience.

Use the finish nailer for this. It's perfect for the job. If you dont have one, just hammer. And hammer. And hammer.

Step 5: Finishing...

Finishing touches are important. Make sure to bend any protruding nails inward. Caulk the gaps. Prime and paint.

I still need to paint mine. The cold weather came before I could last summer, but I'll be painting them soon.

Paint the hutch a light color so sun can reflect in the summer. Bunnies need a cool spot to rest in the hottest months of the year.

Step 6: Finished!

And you can build platforms out of 2x4s. I might put that in another instructible someday, but it really isn't that hard.

Also, you may have noticed the playpen/jungle gym near the hutches. Yes, I DID build that. The bunnies love it.

I am going to build 3 more of these soon. I will post more pictures when I do.

Also, I will indulge myself in a little boasting. I'm a fifteen-year-old girl who built nine of these hutches in one summer. Yeah, they aren't perfect, but they're pretty cool. And I did it, as any little kid would say, ALL BY MYSELF! Well, my mom wouldn't let me cut the wood without her, but other than that, these hutches are my creation completely. I designed, built, and placed these cages myself.

Boasting aside, this should prove that anyone can build these. So go ahead and make your bunny her dream cage!

There's certainly nothing wrong with using it as part of compost, but as the primary ingredient it's way too hot.

Rabbit manure is actually quite a bit less hot than most other manure. It can actually be spread directly on the plants! However, I'd still prefer to compost it.

Great idea! As it is, I have to rake the compost out and spread it on the woods. That would be a great way to use the compost for something other than inadvertantly fertilizing trees!

From my years of raising rabbits, any wood below the cages, as well as some on the lower sides of the cages, will eventually get soaked with urine. Not a good plan for long term. Metal is better, though will rust. Making the lower frame and stands from PVC is a better option, as it is impervious to liquids. Better still, make the frame from PVC, then suspend the hutches from above, eliminating any urine and/or feces collection points below.

Nice setup, otherwise.

interesting thought - pvc

author
HeatherP2 made it!(author)2015-03-23

I considered making the cages of PVC, but I've heard that it's toxic to babies, so I decided not to. There is a certain type of non-toxic PVC, but I don't have it around me.

As I've only had these cages for a year, it'll be interesting to see how the wood holds up. The wood has been chewed a lot already, but the rabbits can't reach half of it. Also, there's a lot of urine on the frame. However, the frame is made of green-treated wood (the buns can't reach it) so I think it'll be all right.

As you can see in one of my photos, Theo's been spraying on his plywood. I'll have to clean that away eventually.

Thanks for the ideas and complement :)

I suggest putting a layer of plastic mesh on top of the steel mesh. The wire would definitely be painful for whatever pet you have...(guinea pig in my case), and can lead to bad feet.

Great design, and fun-to-peruse Instructable! I was wondering -- do you ever cover the hutches when it's rainy? I live in the PNW, and have always understood that a wet bunny is an unhappy bunny. Maybe they just stay inside when it rains...?

author
HeatherP2 made it!(author)2015-03-23

I don't get a ton of rain where I live, as we've been in somewhat of a drought lately. I suppose you could get a tarp, just the garden variety, and cover them up with that and some bungee cords. But yes, when it does rain, the buns just stay inside and poke their cute little noses out.

You did a great job and inspired this accident prone 49 year old to finish her outdoor bunny hutches. I live in Central Florida and when I put my rabbits outside I give them fans because I am so afraid they will overheat. I wonder If I could adapt your design to incorporate small ventilation fans. they also look like great pens for the chickens when I want to have a breeding pair together.

Have you considered adding a non-toxic clear coat to the wood to help it last longer? To the inside where the bunnies will be, I mean. I might do a corrugated plastic roof over the tops of the four that I will need to build.

Thank you again! I love your bunny subdivision.

author
HeatherP2 made it!(author)2015-03-23

I don't know about the fans. I would guess you could use one cheap computer fan in each of the doors, covered in hardware cloth to prevent chewing.

Also, your idea of a finish is excellent! I might do that on my next cages! I think shellac would work well. I'll have to research that more.

Wow, that's a wicked design for those on a budget. A-Frame hutches are super strong and last a lifetime. You didn't specify the AWG(gauge/thickness) of the hardware cloth for the flooring, which should be 16 at a minimum, 14 is optimal though. My hubby and I actually created a site that offers advice on rabbits, we also review a lot of the hutches available commercially. If you'd like to check it out you can visit it here:

Those hutches really need an area with shade. Rabbits go underground where it is cool in the afternoon and do not do well with heat. In the summertime the bunnies in those hutches would be either in the hot sun or they would go into the enclosed part for shade but it would get really hot in the enclosed part- like the inside of a car. Rabbit hutches need areas that are in the shade but open ventilation to keep cool. In summer in the afternoon if I go to see my rabbits they are all under the hutch in the shade where it is cool, sleeping.

author
TanyaR24 made it!(author)2016-04-18

Would also like to add— I think, depending on where sun rises and sets some peices of plyboard could be put on the top of the outside area so they always have a spot of outdoor shade to lay in but still get air blowing through.

This is repulsive. How can you put those rabbits on wire flooring, in dull, height-limiting enclosures, and still claim to 'pamper' them? It doesn't matter that part of their homes have solid bases, so don't use that excuse because I've heard it time and time again. Of course they will sit out on the wire on warm days, because they have no choice but to if they want to sunbathe.

My rabbits all live on solid flooring, and so had my past rabbits (I've kept them since 1998), and never had issues with their hocks. However, over the years, I've seen plenty of photos of rabbits who had previously been kept on wire flooring with fur missing from the base of their paws due to being worn away, and their skin blistered and sore.

Please do your buns a favour, educate yourself, learn correct housing for rabbits, and put it into practice; there are enough websites out there to help you. Take heed that experienced, knowledgeable, loving and respectful rabbit owners never use wire flooring. With solid flooring, they would make lovely homes for guinea-pigs, but not suitable for rabbits at all.

I'm sorry that I've come across angrily, but animal welfare is my passion, so something as careless as this is incredibly painful for me to ignore.

HeatherP2 made it!(author)2015-04-06

Just a hint: If you intend to convince me of anything, try not to say hurtful things in your messages. Remember, if I end up feeling defensive, nothing you can say will change my mind. :)

I have seen pictures of rabbits with sore hocks, too. I know also that solid floors do not cause sore hocks. However, urine burn does cause painful feet and yellow matted fur, making it very hard for the rabbit to move or be picked up without it sending pain to the fur's roots. Poor Theo had this problem very badly. I did consider solid floors, but decided against it on the grounds that they would most likely end up like the place I got the rabbits from. Urine burn is not much fun.

Neither are sore hocks, but I can assure you that I check the rabbits quite regularly for any signs of missing fur on feet. I also check for runny noses, injuries, sneezing, crusty mucus on front paws, abscesses, overgrown teeth, overgrown nails, and any other signs of bad health. I feed my rabbits unlimited hay and 1/4 cup of alfalfa pellets a day. They get fresh water each day. I check their plywood for signs of chewing (to see if they need a barrier to keep from ingesting the OSB) and their water dishes, in case algae has appeared. Every week, I rake all the droppings from under the cages.

If any rabbit shows signs of sore hocks (which has yet to happen) I will fill their outer area with straw until it has healed. I have read on many reputable sources (not rescue sites) that rabbits often prefer the wind in their bum during the summer and the lack of frozen pee puddles in the winter. However, I have also listened to the rescue sites, and I check their feet often.

Also, I have done a lot of research on your average pet mini-rex rabbit. Common diseases and injuries are no mystery to me. I have yet to see anything serious, but if I do, there's a rabbit-friendly vet just a phone call and fifteen minutes away.

I think that the issue of wire floors is more of a personal choice than a rock-solid fact. I have found the when a rescue association, like the HRS, gets a fact under its belt, it won't let go of that notion, no matter how much evidence there is to the opposite. While wire floors HAVE been known to cause sore hocks, they are not the worst evil the rabbit world has to offer. There are many far worse things. And when the solution to a curable condition is just a little bit of straw, I don't think that's the main issue everyone should be focusing on. I'm surprised less people have asked why there's no straw in the hutches! (I was running low, but they have straw now. whoops.)

I have nothing against rabbit rescue societies. In fact, I'm very glad for them. However, I think some of them need to get their facts straight. Someday, you should research the cancer rate in non-spayed female rabbits. The rabbit rescue societies often have a number like 20% or 30%. Other sites, even veey reputable ones, say the rate is closer to 5%. Nobody wants to tell a blatant lie, but the internet has a way of changing information slightly, like a game od telephone. And the rabbit rescues will of course latch on to the most startling statistics. Unfortunately, thwy've lost a lot of credibility with me.

If you make this, go ahead and try a solid floor. The plan is open to change!

I think if you use the proper thicker guage wire for the bottom of the cages, and your bunnies have properly furred feet on the bottom, that wire is actually better than solid flooring. I think the exception is rex rabbit that don't have as much fur on bottom of feet and small rabbits like netherland dwarf whose feet are to small and go through the wires. I do think its nice for people to but a comfy resting mat in the cages though.

Thanks for sharing with us all the little details one should keep in mind while making or buying a rabbit hutch... The rabbit cage is just awesome and it's very spacious too as i can see in the picture. It gives an easy access to the rabbit owner to get rabbit out and clean it up... would have definitely ordered it, as a farm owner, I was searching for this type of product from quite a long time but luckily last month I got one from Benedictsfarm.com. YORKSHIRE 5FT RABBIT HUTCH & RUN, the product was adorable and easy to assemble with a lot of run space, I had it put together in 1 hour by myself. The construction was of very good quality and all the pre drilled holes lined up perfectly. It's even prettier than it looked on their website. The best thing was that they believed the hutch on the same day, as a customer I will rate their service a 5 star.. I am so glad, I ordered this hutch for my rabbits. will definitely recommend them to someone who is looking for a high quality rabbit hutch with a lot of space....

Thank you for the instructions. I plan to make this hutch next.
I have made two hutches previously and I like your design much better than what I came up with.
I have solid floor cages and wire. I definitely like the wire better.
I buy galvanized 1 x 1\2 (I think that's the size) cage wire instead of hardware cloth. I think it is a little more expensive but supposed to be easier on their feet.
I also put one tile in each cage for them to rest on.
I think these people freaking out over the wire flooring need to chill out and find something a little more important to worry about instead of well-cared-for rabbits.

My suggestion is you stop breeding rabbits altogether & go rescue those that are going to be killed at the shelters. And, having bunnies sitting on any hard cage wire is cruel as heck. If you're going to continue this business, I recommend you install resting boards or mats on the outside so the bunnies can sit in the fresh air comfortably. And, where is the rabbit pellet & greens that rabbits love to eat? All I see is basic straw & a bowl of water. That is extremely cruel to force them to live off of only that. Rabbits need a variety of foods in order to be happy. In the wild, they eat many different plants, grasses, & berries. I feel very sorry for your rabbits. What a horrible life they have, all the while you're inside your comfortable house, eating whatever you want, & they're being held in A frame prisons with no chance of ever escaping. Get a different hobby sir. Ask for God's forgiveness & stop treating animals like a profit instead of the living, feeling, gentle souls that they are.

I've made 4 of these hutches so far and have more in the works! :) I tweaked the design a bit, but it's basically still the same thing. We don't have any large predators around here, so I used 1" x 2" mesh on the sides so that I could add hay between the cages to reduce waste and make things easier. It works great! I do have to put up some strips of wood along the sides when there are newborn babies though, so they can't accidentally squeeze out of the cages.

The only issue I've had this far is that the covered parts get pretty toasty. I partially solved the problem by adding a large marble tile to each cage and will slip a slab of ice under the tiles on hot days so they can lay on the chilly surface and cool off. I would imagine that they'll be nice and comfy in the winter though!

HI, nice job. I do not know why people are bothering you about this wire floor thing. Maybe they should use that energy to go after the people raising the factory farmed animals that live short horrendous lives and die horrible deaths. We need a little perspective here, these bunnies have it pretty good. I started raising rabbits for meat to reduce my consumption of factory raised animals and I consider it a personal failure that I have so far been to squeamish to follow through with the plan. After extensive research I have been won over to the wire floor idea. Some hardware cloth is scratchier than others too. I believe it has to do with it being galvanized before or after the cloth is made.

Did you know that rabbits can be terrified to death by a bird of prey or other predator? Please reconsider the way you're keeping these bunnies. (I've been rescuing abandoned bunnies for 20 years.) Here's a link to the House Rabbit Society where they have tons of great info for better ways to keep bunnies. http://rabbit.org

I bring my rabbits indoors every day, where I pet them and play with them. I also have a playpen for them to exercise. Actually, the other day, I had Shirley in for almost the whole day.

It is not practical in a house such as mine to keep the rabbits indoors. We have cats, and both my parents are programmers. If a bunny was in the house without our full attention, she might get electrocuted. It brings a lump to my throat just thinking of it.

Also, I often visit the house rabbit society website to answer any questions I may have. My buns are happy and healthy, and they receive a lot of attention. Even though they aren't in the house, I still do everything I can to make them happy.

Hi, Heather, I'm glad to hear you love your rabbits and spend time with them and bring them inside. I just worry about bunnies in hutches.

There's no way to say this stuff without coming off judgmental but the bottom line is I worry more about the rabbits than the people. Please allow me to say, without taking it as being mean, that I hope that your bunnies are neutered and not making more bunnies - there are so many abandoned ones that need to be adopted. Also neutered rabbits have less of certain kinds of diseases.

You might like to know this also - we have two cats and our rabbits have always pushed the cats around, not the other way! :-) Also we put all the wires in those sleeves you can buy for shower rods. There are also other products that are made to hide wires in, that rabbits can't bite through.

Right now we have one bunny named Athena. She was abandoned at a garbage transfer station in the middle of Long Island and we've taken her in. We've also had several bunnies here at once. We have a finished area in the basement where there are no wires, we don't keep anything they can destroy, and everyone is happy this way. Maybe your parents could help you to bunny-proof an area of your house so the bunnies don't have to stay outside. It really is better. That's not just my opinion, I learned this from the House Rabbit Society.

Here's a picture of Athena the first day we got her - she was hiding in between the refrigerator and the leg of the counter of the little kitchen downstairs in the bunny area.

I love Athena! You're amazing for taking her in after she's gone through such an awful experience. Some people are truly cruel and do horrific things to animals.

I don't think you were being judgemental. I, too, like to speak to people whom I think are misinformed. However, I would like to bring you peace of mind by saying that my rabbits are in no way neglected. Between my dad and me, they probably get five (long) visits a day! Even on school days, I always take time to visit and check the needs of each bunny. None of my rabbits exhibit signs of extreme boredom, such as wire chewing or apathy.

Your concern about predators is a very real problem. It seems like a predator comes after our chickens at least once a month! I'm planning on putting up chicken wire on the perimeter of the "bunny village" so such predators cannot scare the bunnies. However, I believe hawks aren't as much as a problem as raccoons, because a bunny would feel safe from a bird of prey if he was sitting in his "burrow" that I provided on each hutch.

I also am aware of female bunnies getting ovarian cancer from not being neutered. However, I've also read about a research project that proved bunnies that reproduce often are much less likely to get this cancer. For that reason, I might spay my pet (not breeder) rabbit, Snowy, because I don't want her to get cancer. On the other hand, I understand that some of the cancer stats are very exaggerated by well-meaning rescuers...

It's a very cool solution you have for wires. Unfortunately, there are literally hundreds of wires in our house, and most are electrified. (Computer programmers :P) Also, there is only one closed-off, relatively bunny-safe room in the house other than my family's messy bedrooms. It's my room. However, it receives much less traffic than the outdoor spot they're in now, so the bunny might get neglected.

I've also been wondering about rescues. Even though I have rabbits on the way, I have enough empty hutches and run space to adopt a bun. Unfortunately, from what I've heard, it's expensive. The small amount of money my parents have allotted for pets mainly goes to vet visits. Is there another, less expensive, way to adopt? How did you get Athena?

By the way, I NEVER sell bunnies as Easter presents. We all know what happens to "Easter bunnies."
