Can a frame for indoor rabbit cages, like this one, simplify your life?
Just think how quick and easy your cage-cleaning chores
would be if you could remove the cage in the blink of an eye, and take it
outside or to the mud room for fast and thorough cleaning! We're about to show you exactly how to build it...
This PVC frame for indoor cages is designed for use with our free, easy-to-make rabbit cage plan. The given dimensions accommodate the very large 36 inch by 30 inch all-wire rabbit cage. You can keep giant rabbits in it if you like.
If you favor smaller rabbits, such as Polish or Holland
Lops, we'll show you how to change the dimensions for the indoor cage frame,
and make it smaller.
Above: Here's the finished hutch frame and cage partially set up indoors. The blue glue and black lettering on the PVC looks a bit, um, unfinished, so we spray-painted it a bright blue.
See the set-up plans for spray-painting and for installing a drop-tarp or drop-pan under the cage.
In the picture to the right, the unlabeled leg pieces (8)
are each 9 inches long (1" PVC).

Directions for building this indoor rabbit cage:
Be sure to allow a couple inches on all sides for a drop pan for cleanliness.
This frame fits one large 36 inch by 30 inch cage, or 2
smaller cages measuring 18 inch by 30 inches.
To install the rabbit cage into the frame:
It's so easy -- lower it into the frame with the door facing toward you. While the top of the cage is still 1-2 inches above the frame, slide the 40-inch-long aluminum conduit pipes through the top of the cage wire, about 3 inches from either end, from front to back. Let the cage drop into position, resting on the conduit pipes, which are resting on the frame. Simple.
Tie the cage to the frame with a length of 17 gauge
Remove the cage the same way:
Snip the wire. Pull out the conduit pipes and lift the cage
out. That's all.
Need a different cage size? You can tweak the dimensions fairly easily.
