The PVC rabbit hutch framework is large,
measuring 7+ feet long and nearly 3 feet deep. It will accept 30 inch deep
cages with about an inch to spare.
It has two sectioned tiers. Each section is approximately 42 inches wide. This will accommodate up to 40 inches of cage width per section. (Any wider, and the fit will be too snug - you’d have to fight to get the cages in and out.)
The rabbit hutch plans allow for cage arrangement options!
4 cages: each 36 inches by 30 inches, 2 on top and 2 on the bottom. These cages would house breeding does, growing bunnies/fryers
6 cages: 4 cages on the top tier, each 20 inches by 30 inches, plus 2 36 x 30 cages on the bottom. This set up would house 2 breeding does on the bottom, a couple bucks on top, plus a couple extra 20 x 30 cages for replacement does or bucks
If you raise dwarf rabbits, your options grow, as smaller rabbits require less cage space.
If you’re raising meat rabbits for your family’s
consumption, one or two of these rabbit hutch frames with the rabbit hutch
plans all set up might be the only hutches and cages you’ll need.
Why are these PVC Rabbit Hutch Plans so Awesome?
Why? Because the PVC rabbit hutch is fairly light-weight, yet
durable and nearly indestructible.
Placed under a canopy or barn out of direct sunlight, it will last for
many years. It makes your cleaning chores brief and easy, and keeps your rabbits healthy and away from their droppings.
The cages install and dismantle in
moments. What a time-saver! No
back-breaking scrubbing of wooden hutch bottoms that reek of urine. Just snip the one twist-tie, pull
out the two pipes the cage rests on, and the rabbit cage drops into your
arms. Now you can:
Hose it off in the lawn
Scrape any remaining hair or organic debris with a
Use a pressure-sprayer to disinfect with a 1:10
bleach solution (strong)
Let it sit for an hour
Rinse off and reinstall
You can even remove all the cages and
haul the whole PVC hutch frame outside for cleaning.
Because, after a while, it may need it.
(You don't need bleach for the PVC hutch.) Because you can use a hose,
your cleaning chores are done in no time, and your rabbits will stay healthier.

Installing the Rabbit Cages
The full instructions for hanging the cages on the PVC rabbit hutch
frame can be purchased through the links at the top of this page.
In a nutshell:
lengths of 1/2" aluminum conduit pipes (or other type of small diameter
pole) through the cage, thereby suspending the cage on the PVC hutch
Secure the cages to the PVC with lengths of wire. 17 gauge electric fencing wire works well.
Use corrugated plastic roofing panels cut to size as dropping pans between the two tiers of cages.
Complete the whole set up with galvanized metal rabbit pellet feeders, and an automatic water system or crocks.
You can get quite
high-tech with some auto-water systems--auto-fill and auto-shut-off, medication ports,
cables, etc. Our system is simple. It uses gravity to deliver the
water to the
rabbits, and a hose to refill manually.
We don’t use heating cables, and we don’t medicate our rabbits.
You can, of course, use watering crocks in
place of an automatic water system.
So easy to remove cages: just snip the wire tie and slide out the poles.
