Most kids like to have a rabbit as their pet. However, having a rabbit in your house is good only if you have a proper place to keep it. A rabbit hutch is very much needed if you’re planning to breed rabbits. This is because like we need a comfortable place to live, the animals in the same way also require a place to live with comfort. If you go to the market to buy a rabbit hutch that will certainly be costly, but you can have it built at home with a little bit of effort.
3 inch nails, 1 pound
1 inch nails, 1 pound
2 door hinges
Hook and eye latching device for the door
2 sheets plywood
50 inch and 25 inch boards
Keeping the number of rabbits you will have in view, make the dimensions of the hutch such that it is able to accommodate at least 3 rabbits at a time.
As you begin making the frame, cut f boards about 48 inches and 8 boards about 25 inches long and after cutting join the 50-inched board in an L-shape with the 24-inched one.
Join the end of 25-inched board with 50-inch board such that there is 5 inch width left on each side of the L shape with the 2 and a half inch width facing you.
The cage will be 48″ long, so the 25″ board will be on the inside part of the final frame - nail the end of the 25″ piece to the last 2″ of the 50″ piece.
Since the final length of the board will be 50-inch so nail the end of the 25-inch piece to the last 2-inch of the 50-inch piece in a way that 25-inch board form the inside part of the final frame.
With the help of nails and hammer, attach a second 50-inch piece at the opposite side of the 25-inch piece once more in the same way as in the previous step to make an elongated U-shape.
With the board pointing in the upward direction at the ceiling, nail the 25-inch board in each corner of the frame such that the 5-inch widths in all four corners are facing you.
Between two 25-inch boards, fit a 50-inch board with nails such that you see the rectangle vertically before you same as the one at the workbench but must be at right angle.
Now fit another 50-inch piece between the 25-inch vertical boards with nails on the opposite side of the work bench, in the same way as in previous step.
Last but not the least; fit another 25-inch board over two 25-inch vertical boards repeating the same step in the other side, until the resulting shape is a two-sided rectangular cage as well as the top and bottom.
