So, we don’t have rabbits quite yet. But we’re making progress! We bought a shed in June and put it together in our backyard, intending it for the rabbits. It was smaller than what I wanted, but the price was right, so we’re making do.
The main problem with this particular shed is that it lacks adequate ventilation. Rabbits do really well in the winter (despite their obvious furry coats, the most common question I’ve heard regarding rabbits is how they’ll stay warm enough in winter), but they really suffer in the summer heat. It’s important that they get adequate ventilation.
But I didn’t want to just leave the doors open – that leaves the rabbits vulnerable to predators. So I installed a giant screen door.
I built a little doorframe around the opening, built a door, covered it with hardware cloth, and voila – an awesome screen door.
