    Ok I won't go in to the why's about your situations but I can recommend this company for very good quality hutches. They do 6x3ft on stock but will make anything to measure so go the biggest you can. They do runs, enclosures ect. Plus they deliver. They are fab in my opinion

    Lot's of reasons why the shed is no good for any of us, no point listing them as I can't get round some of them. I have tried and it's just not possible to do what I need to do etc etc..

    Have you got a link?

    My buns shed didn't work out either :( We have settled for a hutch and large fully enclosed run but it was from an online shop not sure which one I bought it quite a while ago. sorry I've been any help but just wanted to say don't feel bad about the shed not working out, what's right for some isn't necessarily right for all ;) xxxx

    Good luck with your search for a hutch xx

    Can you not put the hutch in the shed and they can still have the large area to live in?
    Mine have a 8x4ft shed with a 5ft triple level hutch in it.

    It's not the shed really, it's the location of it! I can't move it and DD and myself struggle to get to it.. I dread cleaning it out everytime. I just don't want to feel like that, want to enjoy them not dread it :(

    Ahh thanks hun :) reassuring, feel bad coming on here and deciding to do the opposite to everyone else! I've done it all backwards they have gone form house to shed and now to hutch lol!!

    Also forgot to say, some **** went into the shed the other night mooching for tools, obviously found rabbits and left it wide open :eek::eek::eek::eek: luckily they were nervously sniffing around the shed area when we got up, how they didn't escape I'll never know.. or worse :(

    Hi Tink

    Sorry to hear the sheds not working out.

    Try asking your local RSPCA or animal charity. They may have some old donated hutches they no longer need (give them a good clean tho). or they may know a handy man that can build you a decent solid one at a good price.

    I think these look ok but you would still need to screw some bolts in.
    The Big Big Rabbit Hutch Palace 6ft

    I have just brought a decent solid 6ft wide x 2.5 ft deep and 6ft heigh shed for £100 from a local company in Taunton. It would make a great bunny home but I need it for hay storage. Hutches are so expensive for what they are.
