    Im looking to expande lily & rose'e indoor housing, at the moment they just have there hutch in the garage, i let them have a good run around in there whilst i am there to supervise, but i want to make/buy a run to put around the hutch so they have more space all the time, when they are not in the garden run.

    does anyone have any ideas on where to get any good runs panels etc from to do this.

    Also teh floor in concret so i want to get something to put down on the ground where there new run will be so that they dont pee etc on the concret and make it smell also to make it easier to clean etc.

    Any ideas guys ?

    Thanks in advance Michelle :) x

    There are panels and runs here. Good prices too.

    For the floor you could put newspaper down with a duvet cover or blanket over the top. Or use an old piece of carpet.
    Or get a piece of lino and put that under the run, this would be easy to wipe clean if they wee on it and will be easy to sweep up any hay.

    The best way of making a run is just with timber and mesh, panels are much more expencive and it wont be the exact size you want :)
    Focus DIY does wood which is 38mmX38mm and its £12 for 4 batons of 2.4 meters, thats what I use! You will need galvernised mesh not chicken wire :)
    And you'll need alot of 3 inch screws!

    As for the floor, I'm not sure what you could use, I actually use slabs in my run, laminate flooring in the shed.

    Thanks for the replys guys :)

    I was thinking of making my own panels so it would be the size i want. i think i want it quite high but would like a door on it, not asking too much pmsl. have managed to find a guy who makes panels.

    do you think they look any good ???

    i was thinking if i get some of them i can screw them together and get some hinges and a lock.

    The vinyl is a great idea
