You can also run across some great free ideas from rabbit owners who were making homes for their pets.
Free plans exist for both indoor and outdoor hutches. The important thing is that the plans fit your budget, your space and give your rabbit the home he or she needs.
Outdoor plans will usually be for free-standing hutches or small barns or sheds. Look for plans that provide a good roof to protect your pet from the weather and keep your pet off the ground. A play yard is fun, but your rabbit needs to be able to get away from the wetness during damp weather. In the wild, rabbits would burrow in the ground to stay dry. They can't do that in a hutch, so it is important for them to be able to get up where it is dry.
Play yards need to have wire on the ground as well as the walls so your rabbit doesn't dig out and escape. It also keeps potential predators out.
You can find rabbit hutch plans free, for outdoor hutches that are in a single level or in a double level. Depending on how many rabbits you have, this may affect your choice. Double deckers take up less space overall while still giving your pet the room it needs. One row of cages simply goes on top of another. The plans should provide for a tray or some other way to catch droppings from above so they don't pile up on top of the cage on the bottom.
Indoor hutches should provide adequate room for your rabbit to move about and stretch. They should provide your rabbit with a bit of privacy where they can hide if they feel stressed. An indoor hutch provides a nice safe place that your rabbit can feel belongs to them.
Both kinds of hutches should be easy to clean. No matter how clean your particular rabbit is, at some point the cage will need to be cleaned thoroughly to remove excess fur, sprayed urine and the occasional dropped bunny bean.
Once you've found the hutch of your dreams, print out the plan and purchase your materials. Any extra advice you may need can be provided by the people at the project desk at your local home improvement store.
